Most of us don’t have huge beauty budgets that allow frequent salon visits. Visiting my neighboring Walgreens the beauty department is the busiest, with boxed hair dye and at-home straightening products reigning supreme.
We opt for boxed hair dye and at-home straightening treatments that hopefully tame our unruly locks and tame those nasty cowlicks.
Controlling a cowlick is the first step in achieving the bangs of-your dreams and if your beauty budget doesn’t allow for the Opti-Smooth by Matrix or the Keratin Express treatment every 2 to 3 months we have a few beauty items that will leave your locks silky smooth and straight.
After spending several months testing straightening products we’ve found several beauty aids that are guaranteed to tame your cowlick and control your tresses while staying within your budget.
Touch of keratin by Simple Smooth is a magical elixir that whips your cowlick and unruly tresses into shape, leaving your hair smooth, slick and perfectly straight. Styling my fringe has never been this healthy.
