Ricky Pennisi, a successful salon owner, and leading stylist and founder of RI CI products knows that hydration is key for creating well-shaped, frizz-free curls.

Once hair is dry, you can play with your curls freely without worrying about the frizz."

Hairstylist Jesse Vera recently had a client come to him with a harsh, unnatural looking ombré that she wanted corrected. Says Jesse, "She had gotten her ombré done elsewhere and this is what she ended up with.
