Refuse to Have Bad Hair, Revisited

Oscar Blandi Straightening Balm aka Raffinata aka Pura Straight. This medium-weight creamy balm from one of the maestros of hair is the perfect 'dressing' to help you create straight! Oscar Blandi, who is called upon by the likes of Penelope Cruz, Salma Hayek and Jennifer Garner to design their spectacular red-carpet hair-dos, developed this straightening balm with protective and texturizing ingredients like guar beans (a bean to straighten hair? well, whatever...'cuz it works!), wheat proteins, aloe and algae and sea kelp. It's like a protein shot for your hair.

Use just apply a dime-sized amount--a little more if your locks are long--starting with the ends of the hair and then work to the roots. Then style...straight, ofcourse...as usual. Frizz-free, smooth and sleek!

Bonuses: Raffinata has an amazing citrus-honey scent that's to die for, and the special formulation actually minimizes drying time...neat! $19 for 4oz.
