Paul Labrecque Hair Care / Review and Giveaway- Closed

22 Jul

Paul Labrecque 1

The folks over at Paul Labrecque had contacted me a while back to review some of their products. I didn’t feel right trying any products that weren’t vegan, but after a few emails back and forth confirming their curly hair care products were in fact vegan (they are) we were good to go. A few days later I received a package in the mail containing their curly shampoo, conditioner, styling cream gel and finishing spray (not pictured).

I have to be honest. I totally put off trying these products out for a while. Main reason being I was really happy with the products I was currently using on my hair. Everything I use is normally vegan, organic and chemical free. So I was slightly terrified to put something else in my hair. Why would I? I liked my current stuff.

Well long story short I’m really sorry I waited so long to try them out. Immediately after rinsing out the shampoo, I my hair felt softer. The conditioning cream is rich and thick, and really moisturized my parched locks. The cream gel was also a surprise, it gives fantastic hold with no “crunch” (if you’re a curly girl I know you know what I mean). The finishing spray makes my locks shiny and not greasy, and keeps them frizz free. I’ve also found the spray has helped perk up my curls the following day, so I can now go a day or two between washes.

The absolute nicest surprise has been that my curls have been 100% frizz free in the humid, NYC summer weather. I didn’t think that was possible!

    I blowdry my hair with a flat brush after i put frizzease and nexxus leave in conditioner. I curl the ends under with a big round brush. then when its dry i blast it with a shot of cold air to lock in the style then run some bedhead afterparty smoothing creme through it.

  2. Mariel Dumas July 22, 2011 at 11:20 am #

    I put baby powder on my scalp before going to sleep to absorb oil.

  3. Veronica July 22, 2011 at 4:03 pm #

    Right now I’m using Super Skinny by Paul Mitchell, but it’s really heavy on my hair sometimes…would like to try something else.

  4. meave July 22, 2011 at 5:56 pm #

    I use Ouidad gel and some sea salt texturizing spray, it’s almost great but then, it’s not.

  5. susan July 22, 2011 at 8:01 pm #

    i use aveda leave in conditioner and only run my fingers through it…no combs or brushes

  6. Lissan July 22, 2011 at 8:26 pm #

    I use leave in conditioner on soaking wet hair. Then I scrunch in gel ( La Looks Curl Gel or Got 2 Be Spiked) followed by Loreal Out of Bed. I let my hair air dry.

  7. Stephanie V. July 22, 2011 at 8:50 pm #

    with good conditioner, oil after towel drying and product — still not totally successful though

  8. mixtisch July 22, 2011 at 9:43 pm #

    I have use an anti-frizz serum blow-dry and flat iron

  9. Lydia G. July 22, 2011 at 11:40 pm #

    Moisture! Conditioning in the shower and right after I get out. I comb it through my hair both times to make sure it is evenly distributed.

  10. Angela July 23, 2011 at 7:20 am #

    Every other day I skip the shampoo and just use conditioner. And always use cold water. Brrrr.

  11. Sara P. July 23, 2011 at 11:40 am #

    Right now I am not fighting the frizz very well… When I want to spend the time I use a flat iron.

  12. Mary July 23, 2011 at 12:00 pm #

    I use Frizzease to “attempt” to fight frizz but living at the beach in SC I’m not sure anything really works!

  13. Alex P. July 23, 2011 at 2:01 pm #

    I rub a dollop of olive oil in my hands and then massage it through the rest of my hair. I’ve found that it also helps to use sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner!

  14. Sam July 23, 2011 at 2:25 pm #

    I wash it every other day but condition it daily, never brush it, and use Lush R&B moisturizing cream.

  15. Rachel July 23, 2011 at 2:46 pm #

    I use an anti-frizz serum and air dry. I also regularly contemplate just cutting it all off.


  16. Susan C July 23, 2011 at 4:16 pm #

    I use an anti frizz conditioner, but it doesn’t work that well in this humidity.

    I use FrizzEase but when it’s really humid, there is nothing much that I tried that works any better.

    I used hair straightening shampoo and gel before styling.

  22. kristi blackstone July 23, 2011 at 8:33 pm #

    I currently use hair silk in my hair after I shower. This helps fight frizz for me!

  25. Lily July 23, 2011 at 11:51 pm #

    I use my own mixed each morning all over my hair consisting of hair thickener cream, leave in conditioner, and frizz serum.

  26. Kristen July 24, 2011 at 12:02 am #

    I change my haircare products fairly often because I haven’t found something that I love. I’m currently using Neutrogena Triple Moisture shampoo and deep recovery hair mask. I always air dry and the one product I do love is Frizz Ease Dream Curls spray- no crunchy curls!

  27. miryfaye July 24, 2011 at 7:00 pm #

    I currently fight frizz with herbal essences curl mousse. It’s not the best, so I would love to try this!

    Oh I would really be blessed by this hair care! My hair is so curly, fuzzy, and dry!! I don’t style it much, just throw it up in a bun most days~I just use a natural argan oil to fight the frizz-but would love to try out this brand to be a life time customer if it’s awesome!!!

  30. tnttauna July 25, 2011 at 11:52 am #

    I was my hair 2-3 times a week only blow drying my bangs, the rest I let air dry. I use the Brazilian Blow out conditioner only, I’ve never gotten the full treatment because I like my curl, just not the frizz. It does a pretty good job of de-frizzing the hair but if I have to use additional products I use a thermal protector or leave-in conditioner. I’m always open to trying new things, always in search of that miracle product!

    I just use a lot of hairspray – but I’m looking for other anti-frizz tricks

  32. Kim D. July 26, 2011 at 4:08 am #

    I use leave in conditioner and FrizzEase to help with my frizzy hair.

  33. deana c July 26, 2011 at 11:20 am #

    I currently fight frizz by straightening my hair every day to hide the frizz!

  34. Caryn S July 27, 2011 at 3:32 pm #

    I fight frizz by never using a blow dryer and twisting my curls instead of scrunching

  35. Heather McDonough July 27, 2011 at 3:44 pm #

    I feel like I’ve tried everything! I’m currently using Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk.

  36. Georgina July 27, 2011 at 5:11 pm #

    I use frizzease

  37. Jill Myrick July 27, 2011 at 6:37 pm #

    I currently use Frizz Ease to fight frizz and fly aways. But also have to find a not so humid place to be on very hot days as it still doesn’t control the frizz when it’s really humid out.


  38. Tonya Dean July 28, 2011 at 6:31 am #

    I like to put lotion on my hands and then run them over my hair. Really helps get rid of those flyaways.


  39. charline July 28, 2011 at 12:10 pm #

    Live in the usa
    I try to control frizz with frizz ease but sometimes it just doesn’t work.

  40. april bever July 28, 2011 at 12:37 pm #

    I don’t currently have a way, my hair gets way out of control sometimes because of this.

  41. Jodi July 28, 2011 at 12:40 pm #

    I buy special brushes and use a flat iron

  42. Angela July 28, 2011 at 1:58 pm #

  45. Aliya Abdul July 28, 2011 at 9:22 pm #

    I fight the frizz by wearing my hair pulled back or flat ironing it (which works until it becomes to humid)

  49. Chris N July 28, 2011 at 11:50 pm #

    I use Eco Awesome shampoo and conditioner and Let it Be leave in conditioner by Toni and Guy. Then I follow that up with Noodlehead curl spray. I love Rusk Curlsilk, but can’t find it anywhere around here.

    Honestly, I am on a quest. Nothing is working. My hair is unruly and frizzy. That’s why I am entering this, hoping to find something that will work. Thank you.

  56. Rosey July 29, 2011 at 12:12 pm #

    I use the diffuser instead of the blowdryer right now, during these warm months, to fight frizz.
