The other day I got this email from a site visitor.
I am hoping your beauty expert can help. I am allergic to scented products and have been trying for some time to find a hair product to control frizz that is fragrance free. Any suggestions?
So I asked beauty editor Beth Thompson if she could respond, and I would post the answer here for the benefit of all of us who want to tame frizz without scent. Here’s what she said:
Thanks for your question. This is definitely a toughie! More and more we are seeing some quality brands offering naturally fragranced frizz fighters — Ojon Damage Reverse restorative hair treatment springs to mind — which is a step in the right direction for most women, but of little consequent to allergy sufferers. A scent is a scent is a scent, natural or synthetic.
We suggest you look into Nonscents, whose claim to fame is professional fragrance-free products. You can find them at Nonscents.net and, yes, they ship to Canada.
Try its Smooth and Separate Texturizing Cream, it’ll give you piece-y, smooth locks with movement.
For a home remedy, try adding a few drops of olive oil to your favourite fragrance-free conditioner and style as usual.
