Shefinds Pro Advice: Smooth and Soft Hair

January 31, 2007 by

You’d think on my recent trip to Tokyo that I’d be ogling the fresh sushi or maybe the gorgeous temples, but no not me; I couldn’t pry my envious eyes from the straight and glossy locks of the Japanese fashionistas. Every day I beat my wavy hair into slick submission with an ionic super-power blow-dryer, a concoction of straightening products and a sizzling straightening iron. So yes, I end up with a straight look, but to the touch my hair is fried. So I turned to top stylist Hiro Haraguchi. With 25 years of experience studying, perfecting, and improving his techniques in the Japanese straight perm – Hiro knows how to keep processed hair silky smooth.

Here are Hiro’s 3 product picks for deep conditioning at home:

1. Nigelle DS Treatment TF and FF “Locks in moisture in the hair and produces a natural shine and flexible styling.”

2. L’Oreal Serie Expert Liss Extreme Enriching, Smoothing Masque for Unmanageable Hairicon “Great for damaged or overprocessed hair. Provides immediate detangling and protects ends. Use before blow dry.”

3. Angela Cosmai Protherma Treatment “Doesn’t weigh down the hair, leaves hair shiny, works for color treated hair. Contains Antioxidants and natural botanicals.”

Want Hiro to work conditioning magic on your head? Visit his new salon at the G Spa at the Hotel Gansevoort in NYC. Shop for more at-home frizzy hair help in our guide.
