When it comes to drugstore haircare, Marc Anthony is one of my favourites.
From the cute packaging to the way the products make my hair feel, I’m often grabbing all their products to wash and style my hair. Recently, I was sent the Bye Bye Frizz line, which is made up of seven different products, and is aimed at taming frizzy hair (shocking, based on the name of the line, I know). There’s a shampoo, conditioner, damage repair treatment, leave-in conditioner, humidity shield hairspray, blow-dry cream, and serum.
I received all the products aside from the Miracle Leave-In Treatment, and although I don’t suffer from frizzy hair, I do have to admit that this stuff works. For me, rather than tame frizz, it kept my hair sleek, shiny, and manageable.
The routine starts in the shower with the shampoo and conditioner. The shampoo is formulated with Hydrolyzed Silk for moisture and polymers to help keep hair healthy. It also has hydrolized keratin and Abyssinian oil to strengthen your locks, while soothing the cuticle. As a result, hair is left soft, manageable, and shiny.
The conditioner works basically the same way, but also has lightweight grapeseed oil in it to keep hair moisturized. The formula also contains a strengthening dual-keratin to smooth the cuticle and reduce the look and feel of frizz.
Once hair is towel dried, there are a number of styling products in the line to keep frizz to a minimum (and eliminate it altogether). Up first I’ll apply the Bye Bye Frizz 8-in-1 Serum , which has a blend of ingredients to keep hair soft, moisturized, and manageable. The formula includes hydrolized silk, dual keratin, and oils, such as Abyssianian Oil and Sunflower Seed oil, which keeps the humidity out of hair and the moisture locked in.
After, I’ll grab the Bye Bye Frizz Protecting Leave-In Conditioner, which is a leave-formula that you spray on damp hair. This product helps with split ends and detangles hair for a smooth brush-through. It also contains coconut oil for moisture.
I usually let my hair air dry naturally since I don’t like exposing it to a lot of heat damage, but every once in a while if I’m really styling my hair I’ll bus out the blowdryer and give it a go. Prior to blow-drying, apply the Bye Bye Frizz Keratin Smoothing Blow Dry Cream, which includes lightweight ingredients that smooths hair but doesn’t weight it down.
Finally, once your hair is dry and styled, give it a blast with the Bye Bye Frizz Humidity Shield Hairspray, which won’t let hair frizz up as you go about your day. This hairspray gives you a natural hold, while also providing shine and conditioning.
Although I don’t typically have frizzy hair (unless I sleep with it down during the night), I actually really love how this makes my hair look and feel. I believe this line has been around for a while but it looks like they redid the formula and packaging. The big draw here is the fact that there is no silicone included in the formula. Instead, the brand included Abyssinian Oil, which is a natural oil that delivers the benefits of silicone without the coating and build up that it produces. The formula also has dual keratins and silk protein to nourish hair.
This line actually came right in time since I recently got tape-in extensions, and while she was putting them in she was mentioning that I shouldn’t use products with silicone as it builds up on the hair. Even if you don’t have extensions, it’s always a good idea to look into using silicone-free lines anyways.
If you can’t tell already, I love this line and am so happy that Marc Anthony came out with so many styling products to include in it. Since Marc Anthony is drugstore, that means it’s all affordable, making it simple to pick up every single product ;).
Do you use silicone-free haircare products?
