FroBunni | Giovanni Cosmetics 2chic Frizz Be Gone Collection review

I'm always reluctant to try anti-frizz products. My hair just gets frizzy and that's how it will always be. So, when Giovanni sent me their new line, 2chic Frizz Be Gone, I was a little skeptical. I  wasn't sure if it would work, or conversely, if it would weigh my hair down making it feel greasy and oily. But, I was left pleasantly surprised, and one product really stood out.

I was sent four products: Frizz Be Gone shampoo and conditioner, Frizz Be Gone Anti-Frizz Hair Balm, and the Frizz Be Gone Anti-Frizz Polishing Serum. I'll just come out and say that the balm really didn't work the way I thought. I was expecting it to help keep my hair from frizzing during the day. It didn't. Whether I used it at night to set my hair, or in the morning for a sleek bun. It really didn't seem to help much. It doesn't have PVP, so for me, that's good, but it might be why it just didn't have much hold. It also doesn't really play well with other products...even water. It just flaked up on my hair making it feel tacky and dry.

The shampoo and conditioner worked really well, and I did notice that it made my hair feel smoother and very moisturized. This makes sense; good anti-frizz products contain more moisturizing ingredients that help reduce and prevent damage, which can cause frizz. The Frizz Be Gone collection contains shea butter and almond oil, two ingredients that are great for moisture retention and smoothing the cuticle of the hair. The conditioner is super creamy and has slip, making it easy to detangle. I normally detangle before washing my hair, but for the sake of the review, I detangled during the conditioning process and my denman brush went through my hair like butter with no breakage.

So, let's talk about the star in this line: the Frizz Be Gone Anti-Frizz Polishing Serum. I expected the least out of this product, so I actually tested it weeks after testing the other products. Yeah, that was a mistake. If you've used other Giovanni serums, this one feels similar to the Brazilian Keratin & Argan Oil Ultra-Sleek Hair & Body Super Potion; it's very light and silky. But despite its light feel, it's really great at helping the hair retain moisture. The first time I used this product, I wet my hair with water, applied the serum, and twisted my hair. I was so busy that week that I didn't have time to take down my hair until wash day, five days later. I expected the worst; breakage and dry, brittle hair, which is what usually happens when I go that long without moisturizing my hair. But when I took my hair down, it was still moisturized, soft, smooth, and absolutely no breakage. The serum helped keep my hair moisturized longer than usual. So, if you have difficulty retaining moisture or your hair is high porosity, get the serum. Seriously, it's amazing and works like promised.


So, would I buy the products from this line? Outside of the balm, most definitely! I'll be restocking the serum when it runs out; that will be a permanent staple in my regimen. I would also buy the shampoo and conditioner again, but I haven't seen this line in stores yet, and with the ultra-Moist more readily available, you probably won't see it return in my regimen any time soon.

Also, it's important to note that this line currently has a total of eight products, and I've only used four. I have plans to purchase and review the Frizz Be Gone Smoothing Hair Mask and Frizz Be Gone Taming Cream. So look for those reviews in future!

  1. awww, dammit. i thought my product junkie-ism was largely curbed, but i really have to try this now.

  2. Thank you! Your review was very helpful :)

  3. I put the balm on my hair today with a bit of water and I love it! The Giovanni product people seem to understand my kind of hair-very kinky, dry and frizzy. I'm going to buy the shampoo and conditioner now.
