    Default Ladies... I finally found it!

    We've been to Couples 3 times now and it seems every trip I have a new hair "product" to combat the humidity in Jamaica. Honestly, nothing has worked so far but I do believe I have found it! I'm in Toronto and July and August are very humid. I tried a product called "3 Day Straight" by John Freida that I got at the drugstore. Amazing! I even went to the gym and worked out for 2.5 hours and my hair did not frizz or curl.
    I know this is often a topic on the board so I thought I would share!

    I was wondering if the product actually worked. Something I've been using in my curly hair is Moroccianoil. It helps with drying time and frizzies.

    There was a curly w/ gorgeous hair a couple of years ago when we were at CSA. She looked just like Rebeccas Gayheart...no kidding! I asked her what she used. She said Pantene Pro-V for curly hair. This stuff is now my holy grail! So awesome

    Great! Thanks for the info! I also use this product also when I go to Jamaica, it really does save my hair from sun, salt and sand! I spray it in my hair every every morning before I go out in the sun. I usually reapply it at lunch time too. I would come home with hair so dry and this has really saved my hair the last couple trips. .. Kenra Daily Provisions Lightweight Leave-in Conditioner.

    Thanks for the good info!! I don't know if anyone remembers the "Friends" episode where they were in the Bahamas I believe and with every change of scene, Monica's hair gets bigger and bigger. That is what my hair is like!! I will definitely try this product.

    there are actually several products like this on the market now--basically anything with keratin in it. Organix makes a "system"--along with just shampoo and conditioner that helps cut down on frizz a little bit. for the "system" to work, you need to "seal" you hair with a flat iron, which could get painful if one has a lot of hair. for the shampoo and conditioner, i've used them just for wash and wear and it helped somewhat.

    there are also salon treatments that coat the hair in keratin and last for months. they are pricey and are called different names, Brazillian Blow Out is one. some have formaldehyde, some do not. i have one in my hair and it's changed my life this summer and i can't wait to test it out in Negril this winter!

    but for those who don't want a permanent result like that, i can't reccomend the organix stuff more--sold at regular drug stores like CVS and on amazon. you want the brown bottles, the Brazillian ones.

    hope this helps someone!

    If you're looking for something more "permanent" I highly recommend the Keratin treatments. I live in FL and never used to straighten my hair over the summer, since it would go frizz-o-rama, but now I get the Keratin express treatments, and for $120 every 3 months, I have glorious frizz-free hair. I can wear it either straight or curly, and it's fabulous! Even works in Jamaica.

    So this all sounds great BUT…. I scuba dive two times a day and have thick wavy hair and have always breaded it in the past to avoid looking like Medusa the entire trip is this something that would work for me or am I truly hopeless?

    Hi everyone;
    It is just a spray that you put on after shampoo and conditioner. You spray on damp hair then blow dry and flat iron. Amazingly, it actually gives you more body! My hair feels thicker and much healthier after only 3 uses. For $12.99, that is a miracle!

    I bought the 3 day straight and am off to Sans Souci and Negril tomorrow. I will try it on my hair in Jamaica, and give a honest review when I get back on the 21st. It would be really nice to wear my hair straight at least a few times.

    Marnies,

    Sad to say that the three day straight did not work for me in Jamaica. I used it twice, and both times, my hair did not really curl, it just got really frizzy. It was extremely hot and humid when I tried it in August. Hope others have better luck, but for me it was just easier to let my hair curl.

    Hi Gray;
    Damn! Did you flat iron it? I've been using it here all summer and it has worked great. Maybe Jamaican humidity is different from Canadian? LOL

    Marnies, I did flat iron it, but to be honest I did not spend as much time on it as I would at home. You know how it is when your on vacation, my husband allows me an hour to get ready to go out. When we went in November the humidity was much more reasonable. If its worked for you here all summer, maybe it will be great there as well. Today is very humid in Ontario, but it was a lot worse in Jamaica.
