Get ready…this is like 3-posts-in-1!!!
If you’re following MM via Facebook, then you’ve probably seen a few photos recently, of my flat-ironed hair.
If you didn’t know, there is a MerelyMarie Facebook page…if you’re on Facebook, head on over to the MM page & click Like! Now that I have a smart phone, I’m having fun posting little “at the moment, thoughts & happenings” that might not always make it to the blog. I love reading comments from you & just interacting with everyone on FB, so come join us:)
I’ve been waiting to try Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream since Moptop Maven shared her luscious hair results, a couple years ago.
Why the long wait?
I don’t flat-iron my hair often, and the product (at 21 bucks for a 4oz. bottle) is a bit pricey (especially to be loaded with synthetic ingredients).
Then, this happened…
50% off clearance…AND the product looked fresh!
I’ll take it!
I took it.
Some times clearance products don’t look good at all; the ingredients start to change color & separate…just yucky!
My favorite brand, Jane Carter, also had some conditioner on
I washed my hair & applied a pea-size amount of the glossing cream to it, before blow drying. Next, I added a bit more of the cream to each section, before flat-ironing.
I manage to keep the flat-ironed hair for about a week, before washing it out. My natural coils made their safe return, with no visible damage.
I maintained this look just by redoing the braids, in the morning.

Frederic Fekkai Glossing Cream Review
Light, pleasant scent. Doesn’t have the “drugstore brand” smell.
Nice & creamy. It doesn’t have so much water in it, that you feel hesitant about following up with the flat-iron.
Soft, shiny, bouncy hair! My hair didn’t feel weighed down, nor did it have that weird “coated” feeling that some products can leave behind, when straightening.
A little goes a long way.
The first ingredient is water. The next three are silicone-based.
If you’re “cone-conscious”, beware.
All things considered, I’d have to say that this product is probably worth the full price tag; especially if you shampoo & wear your hair straight regularly.
Now, I’m curious about the other products in the Fekkai Glossing line…
Here are a few more result photos, taken later that day, with my good camera:
Have you tried Frederic Fekkai glossing cream? Fekkai product line?
Undercuts, pixies, straight faux-hawks, super short tapered ‘fros, (& even buzzed all-the-way to the scalp LOL)…I can not decide!
All I know is that I’m obsessed with really short hair, and have been for months now. The going back & forth is driving me nuts but, I am a very “thorough person” when making most decisions. Ha, ha!
These blogs have been giving me tons of inspiration!
I think I’m ready.
So…what’s been going on with your hair?!
