My hair is frizzy and wavy, so it needs to be styled in order to be seen in public. My biggest problem when I style my hair are those pesky fly-away hairs that I yield into submission with lots of hair spray. Recently I learned about Kendi Oil Dry Oil Mist by Alterna , which is used for to control the fly-aways and gives the hair a nice shine.
This lightweight, instantly absorbing mist can be used as a treatment or a style primer to eliminate frizz, shield hair from heat styling tools, enhance shine and protect color while boosting your hair’s health.
In my case, I had mixed results, my hair is thicker so the product didn’t help me with the frizz. Whether I styled it with a flat iron or a clipless curling iron, the dry oil mist did not control the frizzyness. But it did give it a nice shine and I liked that it didn’t weigh my curls down.
I tried the product on a friend of mine who has fine, straight hair. I was so jealous, in her case Kendi Oil immediately made her hair look sleek and polished, it did control the fly-aways and later on she told me that effect lasted for hours; she loved the product.
But now that I had a chance to go over Alterna’s other collections and I’ll be sure to try some of their other products.

Previously I wrote about Ojon, an amazing company and its signature product the Restorative Hair Treatment. I have used it for several months and I love the results on my damaged hair. So I set off to try more of Ojon’s products.
Having my hair protected all day with a leave-in styling treatment was in my mind when I decided to try the Hydrating Styling Cream.
I had mixed feelings about this product. It smells great, especially for a product you will be wearing all day, it’s lightweight and even though it does eliminate the frizz, the hair doesn’t feel weighed down. The first time I used it was on my damp hair, I let it dry naturally and then started styling with my flat iron. I wasn’t very happy with the results, it didn’t quite give me a sleek look and I ended up wearing my hair in a French braid instead.
The second time I used it, I put it on my damp hair, let it air dry and just slightly combed it afterwards. The result was my hair in my natural slightly wavy hair, neither straight nor curly. But I have to admit there was no frizz in sight and there was no need to use additional products.
So I would recommend Ojon’s Hydrating Styling Cream on people with really curly hair or those lucky ones who don’t need to do too much styling on it.
