Flat Iron In A Bottle


Besides my favorite volumizing products, there is a another product that needs to be mentioned here. It's Redken Real Control Slim Supreme. It is what I call, "flat iron in a bottle". It will give you smooth silky hair that is weightless and shiny. It can be used wet AND dry. And it never gets greasy or heavy during the day. It's wonderful in humidity and it excellent for smoothing down those stubborn frizzy areas of your hair.

I usually do 1 pump for shoulder length hair, and 2 pumps for longer hair and slick it on before I blow dry. Then after the hair is dry (and even after flat ironed), I'll slide another pump over the midshaft-to-ends part of the hair.

Basically, I haven't met a person who doesn't love it. I snatch up samples every time I get my hands on them and give them to my clients to try it. They all love it. I mean it. Not a single person has told me they weren't impressed.

So if you are looking for something for smoothing, finishing, shine, softening, and completely weightless--here you go!

  6. Just received this yesterday after reading your recommendation and it is AWESOME! I have very thick semi-wavy hair, and today it looks smooth and flat, but doesn't feel like there is any product in it! My husband even noticed, which says a lot!

  7. I have very thick coarse hair and the slim down is fantastic. I actually wash then towel dry my hair then put a few pumps in my hair, avoiding the roots, put it in a high bun to air dry. Then I use a hot tools curling iron to do the curl down method. My hair has never ever looked better. The whole redken real control line is great. Have you tried Terax's products? The conditioner is great but they have a great protein shampoo and leave in drops, which is their leave in conditioner.

  8. Hi Kate! I was wondering what type of blow dryer you recommend. No matter what I do my hair turns out frizzy when I blow dry my hair.

  12. Does this product work out really curly hair too? I have super curly hair and occasionally like to straighten it (with a hair dryer and roll brush, which seems to be the only way I can do it without it getting super frizzy). I'm just looking for some kind of product that will make my hair not so (for lack of a better phrase) "puffy".
