Rachel Roy x John Frieda Frizz-Ease Mini Straight Kit:
Summer is the unofficial wanderlust season — particularly among urbanites hoping to escape their concrete confines and find refuge in breezy beach locales, virginal mountaintops with lush foliage, and quaint lakeside towns. As a New York City denizen, fashion designer Rachel Roy knows summer is the season for weekend getaways and spur-of-the-moment trips — which is probably why she knows women need help when it comes to packing on the fly! Haircare brand John Frieda, meanwhile, knows that summer presents some very specific hair challenges, mostly centered around one creepy culprit: frizz. Through a meeting of the minds, then, Rachel Roy and John Frieda Frizz-Ease have unveiled a new collaboration that takes into account all of women’s summer fashion and beauty needs. The brands released two limited-edition, travel-friendly hair care kits filled withJohn Frieda Frizz-Ease products packaged inside modern, graphic pouches designed by Rachel Roy.
The Rachel Roy-designed pouch nods to John Frieda’s British heritage via the illustration creates, a snapshot of the London cityscape — presumably of Piccadilly Circus given the location of the underground tube station roundel on the sketch, not to mention the façade of a building that much resembles the London Pavillion. Made of a linen-like material, the pouch features a blue zipper lining and a feminine pink bow tied to the zipper pull tab.
Women can choose between two versions of the kit: the Rachel Roy + John Frieda Frizz-Ease Mini Curly Kit ($38 at RachelRoy.com), featuring six travel-sized products meant to give wavy and curly tresses greater definition and control, and the Rachel Roy + John Frieda Frizz-Ease Mini Straight Kit ($38 at RachelRoy.com), designed to help give women sleek, smooth, straight manes for as long as three days.
Both kits contain the Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Restoring Shampoo and Frizz-Ease Smooth Start Restoring Conditioner, both of which contain nourishing olive oil and silk proteins to hydrate hair, reinforce distressed strands, seal split ends, and repair the hair’s moisture barrier; the Frizz-Ease Sheer Solution Lightweight Frizz Control, a non-greasy serum that smooths hair fibers and which was developed for women who battle frizz but also have fine hair (and who therefore might find the original Frizz-Ease formula to be a bit too heavy); the Frizz-Ease Secret Weapon Flawless Finishing Creme, a must-have for taming fly-aways, controlling frizz, and subduing unruly strands; and the Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Firm-Hold Hair Spray, which delivers touchable hold while also creating a protective barrier around the hair that seals out moisture, thereby preventing frizz.
The difference between the two kits is that the Rachel Roy + John Frieda Curly Kit includes the Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Mousse, which helps to give undulating strands a boost and helps to maintain their shape without the crunchy, tacky, sticky feeling that can accompany so many mousses and curl creams, while the Rachel Roy + John Frieda Mini Straight Kit includes the 3-Day Straight Semi-Permanent Styling Spray, a genius styling product that, when applied to damp hair, provides thermal protection, blocks frizz, and makes achieving pin-straight strands a cinch via a blend of keratin proteins and polymers that wrap around each strand and seal in the straight style achieved.
Whether you want to rock a curly mane or opt for a sleek straight look, you can select the kit of your choice and have all the products you need for your exciting summer getaway within reach — plus, you’ll get a stylish pouch in which to store them to boot!
