Tonight, in Urban Legends of the Beauty World…
Long, long ago in a town, far, far away, a girl did something unfathomable!
It was the night of the big winter semi-formal, and she was getting ready at home. Her date — a cutie, of course — was on his way to pick her up, but her hair was a frizzy mess.
Ding-dong! The doorbell rang downstairs.
In a moment of random panic/fortuitous kismet, the girl grabbed an old dryer sheet from the trash and ran it over the top layers of her hair.
Miraculously, her wild, wayward strands were smoothed! Huzzah!
Or so the story goes…
Well, Kerastase is taking that idea and making it less MacGyver-ish, and more hair-friendly, with their new fancy-schmancy Carre Lissant Hairstyle Touch-Up Sheets ($28.50 for a box of 50).
They’re basically the same idea. Each sheet contains a waxy-feeling, smoothing product to fix fly-aways and frizz, but instead of scenting your mop with Eau de Snuggle Bear, they leave behind a soothing lavender fragrance.
When my hair looks cray, which has been happening a lot lately thanks to the constant breezy drizzle outside, I grab a sheet from the box and run the waxy side down the top layers of my hair from mid-shaft to the ends, and then along the side-swept sections that had once upon a time been bangs (um…someone desperately needs a trim!).
One sheet sufficiently smoothes things down and tames my frizz, but a word o’ warning: the sheets do tend to deflate hair volume, so you may need/want to do some extra fluffing and scrunching when you’re done.
Also, avoid your roots if you’re on day three (or four or five) of a blowout, because the sheets add some shine, and if your hair is already a little oily, you could end up looking like you’re wearing a bucket of KFC…
The box is small enough to fit into the palm of my hand or a medium-sized purse, so it’s good for travel, and if you were going to use something smaller like a clutch, you could always leave the box at home and bring one or two sheets with you in a plastic bag.
These totally work. I wouldn’t exclusively rely on them to eliminate frizz, but they’re convenient for anti-frizz touchups. A box of 50 sheets is $28.50. Available now at Kerastase counters and online.
PRICE: $28.50 for 50 sheets
