We all have our beauty challenges, those little things that keep us from having a good hair day or a flawless finish. Mine
is was frizz. Past-tense, because I'm happily frizz-free thanks to the revolutionary Cezanne Perfect Finish smoothing treatment, which I had the opportunity to receive at Casablanca Salon & Day Spa in Sherman Oaks, California.
Gail Wood, an educator for Cezanne and resident master stylist at Casablanca, administered the service, which proved to be a true game-changer, improving the quality and appearance of my formerly frizzy tresses.
xplains Morrison. "With Cezanne, stylists aren't breathing in or touching anything toxic. Salons have almost given up on the smoothing category, due to health concerns. But with this, we don't even require the stylist to wear gloves; they can apply it with their hands. It's a very stylist-friendly treatment, and he lead product is just so cutting-edge and innovative."

The treatment uses a proprietary blend of key ingredients to deliver smoother, straighter, healthier and frizz-free hair, including:
- Sericin - a natural protein produced by the silk worm, which acts as a cement between the strands of keratin proteins
- Keratin proteins, which work to strengthen and soften hair
- Vitamins C, E, B3, B5 and B6, derived from sugar cane, lemon, apple and green tea extracts
- Glycolic acid - a popular exfoliant and moisturizer for the skin; in the hair, it penetrates hair shaft to allow keratins and vitamins to infuse throughout hair shaft, delivering softer and more manageable hair
ing the hair from the inside out.
In addition to providing stronger and healthier hair, Cezanne Perfect Finish can be used on any hair type and texture, whether the hair is colored, damaged, bleached, or highlighted. It'll last for months, and it has no “down time” after treatment—hair can be washed or colored immediately after treatment, and unlike other smoothing systems, hair can also be curled with a curling iron.
"With most smoothing treatments, you can't touch the hair afterward, swim, etc.," remarks Morrison. "With this, right afterward you can color or shampoo—which makes a big difference in terms of lifestyle."
I actually received a color service two days following this treatment, and I could not believe how sleek and shiny my hair was. Obsessed much?
Next, I'll show you the before-and-afters!
Oh, the frizz... the horror!
