The Low Down on Fizz

How is frizz caused?
Frizz can be genetic, which means you can be born with it. On the other hand, it can also be environmental. Humid weather, especially, is often the culprit. Dry, damaged hair that lacks moisture can also be a cause of frizz.

What is frizz?
The outside layer of each hair strand, called the cuticle, is made up of overlapping protein scales, kind of like the skin on a fish. When hair is dry, damaged, aggravated by weather conditions & improper brushing, the scales become raised, creating a frizzy texture. The raised cuticles then allow moisture from the atmosphere to enter, creating that extra fluffy mess! As a result, your hair appears dry, frizzy & flyaway instead of smooth & defined.

So, what gives hair that frizzy look?
Static electricity! Static electricity is an imbalance of electric charges at the atomic level. Atoms are made up of three subatomic particles: the positive protons, the negative electrons & the neutral neutrons. The imbalance is created by a transfer of electrons from one atom to another. An atom that has gained or lost electrons is called an ion, and it’s these ions that can cause & cure frizzy hair problems.

How does the Super Frizz Defense Technology work?

Negative ions are a gal’s best friend! The Frizz Defense range has been developed with Super Frizz Defense Technology, with each of the products featuring double ionic generators. These ionic generators release 60% more negative ions that combine with positively charged ions to neutralize static electricity. The negative ions cause the cuticle scales to relax, sealing in moisture, conditioning the hair cuticle for ultimate frizz-free smoothness & enhanced shine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Effective, Efficient, Works The VS Sassoon Frizz Defence Straightener for me is a game changer and I’ve kissed frizzy hair GOODBYE. I cannot wait to try out the rest of the range, especially the Brush. What I love most is that fact that my hair still feels healthy and soft even after using it. I have recommended this to my fellow Curl Friends with Frizzy Hair and they too cannot wait to try it. This wonderful Straightener worked wonders on my very Kinky/Coily Hair and I’m just in awe and inlove.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice product I got my straightner very fast it was really unexpected.such a quick delivery never happened. I do a lot of online shopping a few times I had to chase or write a few emails to track down my delivery even when the delivery is from within New Zealand. I used my straightner, it was my first purchase VS Sassoon brand. I really like it. I had a little bit of issue when I started using it .the reason is the heat settings and on button is located at the same place where the hand goes to hold the straightner. The temp. can easily go up and down when the hands gets on to the straightner handle. But now I know how to tackle it so longer that's an issue. Thanks VS Sasson for making a frizz defense hair straightner that makes my life easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TERRIBLE BUT I CANT RETURN IT I bought this 2 days ago (I was rushing as the stores were closing) and upon using it I found it had a very impractical design. First off, there is no lock for easy storage. Secondly, the on/off buttons are really difficult to press so i struggled to turn it on and off. THIRDLY the control buttons for the temperature are so badly placed. It’s located right where one would usually hold the straightener and every time I try to use it, I would end up pressing a button and end up using the lowest setting >:( this makes it really inefficient .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Such a great product! I’m so happy with how easy and great this product is to use. It heats up quickly and other straightening products leave my hair feeling dry and dull. The VS Sassoon straightener leaves my hair feeling soft, voluminous and frizz free every time. This is now an essential to my hair tool collection.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Terrible design I recently bought this straightener and was very disappointed with it. The in off switch and temperature controls are where you hold onto the straightener so it just keeps turning off or the temp changes all the time. Very annoying! I would not recommend this straightener.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don’t buy!!! Don’t buy it!!! The temperature control is at the wrong place so my hand accidentally presses the buttons and temperature just going up and down all the time. And no...it doesn’t help much about Frizz. I’ll return it.
