Alberto VO5 Declares August National Anti-Frizz Month

Alberto VO5 logo
Did you know that 87% of women battle frizzy hair regularly?

While this is a stat that surprises me (I wouldn't have thought it was quite that high), I have to admit that it also makes me feel less... alone. You mean I'm not the only one who is continually frustrated by my crazy locks?

While frizz can be a year-long problem, I think we all know that the hot and sticky months of summer only make it worse. Which is why legendary hair care brand Alberto VO5 is on a mission to help women in the battle against frizz, declaring August "National Anti-Frizz Month" and celebrating with their new Salon Series products.

Alberto VO5 Salon Series

Alberto VO5 (VO5 stands for 5 Vitamin Oils) began as a conditioning hairdressing created by a chemist and hairdresser, Alberto, in California. After being purchased by Leonard Lavin in 1955, VO5 moved to Chicago where it was expanded into a full range of haircare products.

Alberto VO5's newest collection, the Salon Series line, still contains VO5's proprietary Five Essential Vitamins, but is now also formulated with 11 Essential Oils to penetrate your hair from roots-to-ends for salon beautiful hair... at an affordable price.

The 11 Essential Oils include:
  • Sweet Almond — moisturizes to keep hair healthy.
  • Kiwi — highly cleansing and removes impurities within hair.
  • Marigold — highly cleansing and nourishing to help keep hair silky and smooth.
  • Wheat Protein — penetrates hair easily and helps create stronger hair.
  • Aloe Vera Juice — excellent moisturizing properties help keep hair healthy.
  • Quinoa — packed with amino acids, vitamins and minerals to help create stronger hair.

First of all, I'm not ashamed to go on record, saying that I've never even heard of Broccoli Seed Extract, let alone considered using it on my hair! LOL

But now that I'm *ahem* a little grey, I find that frizz is a problem in the humid weather. Thanks for the review of VO5--it's been a long time since I've used it, and it might just be time to try it again.

Unfortunately 80% of a year our weather here is humid and I'm always trying to bit frizz, I should try VO5

Frizz has never been a problem for me. My hair is a bit thin and very straight.

My hair usually gets frizzy after I wash it. I think all the essential oils that are provided by the VO5 line might help in combating that effect. I'll have to try out this new salon collection, it's been awhile since I've used VO5 so maybe I'm missing out.
