The invasion of the hair products continues and with that a new resolution was desperately needed on my end.
I will never-ever again brag about self control especially since I announced to the whole blogosphere that my hair care routine was very simple and satisfactory and here i am now with a small armload of new "hair necessities".
One of my favorite discoveries as of late has been the Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream (with encapsulated olive oil) which I have used every day since I got it about 2-3 weeks ago.
My hair is healthy and shiny on its own but the Glossing Cream has reallly amped up the effect, so much so that I have gotten comments and compliments every day since.
Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream is a sheer, leave-in styling cream that adds moisture, brilliant shine and manageability. Pure encapsulated olive oil helps combat humidity, eliminates frizz and leaves hair lustrous and sleek. Suitable for all hair types.
Directions for use;
Rub a small amount between palms and distribute through hair before and after blow-drying to add manageability and shine.

I think the best description of Frederic Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Cream is that of a hybrid in between a leave-in conditioner and a styling cream. It calms unruly tresses, depuffs, eliminates frizz and flyaways, gives a glossy sheen and softens the ends for a very natural free flowing locks. It basically takes care of everything those of us with thick hair have to deal with. The encapsulated olive oil provides both the super-glossy look as well as the additional conditioning to treat, protect and hydrate your hair.
That is a brilliant combination if you ask me!
The texture of this is a light cream but its very concentrated so start of by using very small amounts at a time (pea size) until you feel your hair has had enough. My hair is very thick and long but all I needed was about an almond size to tame my mane and shine brilliantly.
Because of its richness and concentrated nature I would NOT recommend this to anyone with thin or fine hair. This stuff is just too potent and I am afraid the only effects those Princeza's would see is heavy, limp and greasy hair.
Nobody likes that kind of result?
The price tag of the Brilliant Glossing Cream is a little higher than most similar hair products but since you are using only small amounts at a time why not splurge on a great quality product that will deliver each and every time.
Frederic Fekkai ($25 for 4 oz) products are available for purchase directly through their website and ULTA. It's also widely available through most department stores such as Walmart, Nordstorm and Macy's.
I hope that was helpful.
