don't blow it

I had a hair appointment last weekend, and when my stylist--Cesiley--asked me how I wanted my hair styled, I told her she could just blow dry it straight. I didn't have any plans for the day other than running errands, and it didn't make sense to spend extra time getting my hair done for that. One of the products she used was R+Co Park Ave, which is a blow out balm. 
I'm used to stylists getting my hair way sleeker than I could ever dream of, but I noticed as Cesiley blow dried that the process seemed to go quicker. Plus, typically when I get blowouts, to tame my waves and frizz the stylist has to perform wrist contortions with a round brush. But Cesiley was just using a paddle brush. I was intrigued, so I asked her if the salon sold that product. She said yes, and I grabbed a tube for $28.

I didn't miraculously become a professional hair dresser over night, but this balm really speeds up my routine. I use a little after applying my favorite heat protectant (Kenra Blow Dry Foam*), blow dry, and then I run my straightener over the problem areas. I finish up with some texturizer, and that's it. 
And more than just helping me style my hair, it also leaves it softer. This is a big deal to me, because the more blonde I add to my hair, the more dry and brittle it feels. My first day using Park Ave, I couldn't stop feeling my hair. So if you're looking for a quality blow dry product, this one has my vote!
*As I tried to find a product link for you I realized this might now be discontinued! :( Guess I'll need to find a new favorite when my last bottle runs out. Let me know if you have any suggestions
