Taming Frizzy Hair With Zelo

Hey all!!! We came across several Zelo Keratin reviews by other bloggers and decided to re-share them here for you in the next couple of weeks. Let’s read what these beauty bloggers have to say about Zelo.

I’m Taming My Wild Hair with Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System

I have struggled with my frizzy, coarse hair for as long as I can remember.  It’s super thick, hard to manage, and a huge pain to style every single day. I blame it all on my parents.  My Dad had a big ol’ Afro in high school, so I was either “blessed” with his hair genes, or the damage was done when my Mom spiral permed my hair over and over again as a child.  Either way, my hair has been torturing me for as long as I can remember.

In high school, I wanted straight hair so badly that I would literally place a hot iron (pre-flat iron days) on my hair to flatten it out.  I wasn’t the least bit concerned about burning myself.  I just wanted straight hair!!

When the flat iron was finally invented and made available in stores, I jumped for joy.  I could finally get my hair straight without worrying about burning myself, and I could reach areas I couldn’t with a regular iron.  I have been using a flat iron (one of the expensive and super fancy ones that goes all the way up to 450 degrees) for many years now.  The flat iron helps me to achieve the straight-haired look that I want, but it takes FOREVER for me to straighten my hair every day, and it also damages my hair quickly, due to the constant high heat exposure.

I’ve been wanting to try a professional keratin treatment on my hair for several years now, but they are very expensive.  I just don’t have extra hundreds of dollars laying around to get my hair professionally straightened.  It was always one of those “maybe some day” things for me.

When I heard about Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System, I jumped at the chance to try it out.  This is a treatment I could do by myself, in the comfort of my own home, and best of all, it is very affordable!

Zelo Brazilian Keratin Smoothing System on Natural African American Hair


I am absolutely IN LOVE with this product!! I tried this for the first time almost 4 weeks ago. I have naturally kinky/curly hair that is extremely thick and hard to manage. Zelo gave me beautiful straightened hair and made my hair softer and more manageable without permanently changing my curl pattern. Over the past 4 weeks I have enjoyed wearing my hair both straight AND curly with this treatment in!! I was able to wear my hair straight for over a week without having to retouch with the flat iron at all until I washed it again. This product does exactly what it says, I am ordering another batch today, and telling all of my friends about it!!  – Charlesa

I don’t brag about anything I haven’t tried myself, and I am so happy I decided to give this product a chance!! -Charlesa

More pictures of my hair after using this product. This was the next day after treatment. Hair was super SHINY and SILKY with NO PRODUCT ADDED!! I got so many compliments. Again I am 100% natural. I think my hair looks better with this treatment in it than it ever did with a perm!! I am not a beautician but I take very good care of my hair and I did this treatment at home myself. Sooo easy!! – Charlesa

Zelo Keratin and African American Hair

Zelo Keratin On Natural “Black Hair” Before and After Results

Since Zelo’s airing on HSN this monday, ladies of color have been asking us one thing: “That girl doing her Happy Dance and whipping her hair back and forth, how do I get that?”

No doubt, keratin has been one of the best kept secrets for African American hair, and with that comes a lot of questions. Is it like a relaxer? Is it permanent? What will it do for my natural, afro, relaxed, mixed, curly, or kinky texture?  As an African American myself who is transitioning from relaxed to natural and also has about 5 different textures of hair on her head (lol), I’m going to do my best to address these question/concerns right now. (more…)

A View from Paris

By Zelo Contributor, Shelby Marcus Ocana

As an American living in Paris, I soon learned the importance of beauty to Parisian women. From an early age, the French are taught to take good care of their hair. It’s quite common to see young girls in a hair salon perched on a chair getting their hair cut and styled next to their mom.   Hair care is extremely important in the French culture, but like most women around the world, French girls don’t have much time to curl or straighten their hair in the morning. Although European French women are mostly born with naturally straight and glossy hair, the rate of immigration has doubled over the past years bringing in many women from North Africa whose hair is curly and more unruly.   Wishing to look more like their “European sisters”, North African women use different methods to straighten their hair.  Flat ironing and keratin blowouts are two of the many ways women who aren’t born with naturally straight hair use to achieve the glam look.

The average French woman sets aside a budget for her trips to the salon, typically spending 50 euros per month on hair care. In Paris, hair salons are numerous and there are many famous stylists who have set up shop. You can find a hair salon on every single block of the nation’s capital, and many women pop in for a quick shampoo and blow-dry to maintain their sleek look before going out at night.   That being said, budget is always a concern and more and more Parisians are taking hair matters in their own hands and doing their hair at home with various types of flat irons.  For women who don’t want to flatiron their hair everyday, (and who has time for that?), keratin straightening kits are hitting the market and proving to be very popular.

Zelo Global Culture Holiday Series

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!   Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year not for the obvious family, magnificent feasts and black Friday deals (trust me I take advantage of it all), but for the one day dedicated to giving thanks and being grateful for our many blessings.  Gratitude leads us all to abundance and a greater purpose.  Thanksgiving also marks the start of the holidays and as a result we begin a new holiday series.

As part of our culture diversity and Zelo’s expansion into so many countries we kick-off a new series over the holidays.  We are so fortunate to have an amazing team around the world willing to share their insights and point of view.  So here’s how it works, Zelo correspondents (men or women) from around the world will contribute information on a woman’s perspective of beauty in their home country (or country where they are residing).  They will share what makes a woman feel good about herself in other parts of the world, i.e. what priority is given to their looks (hair of course is of the most interest)  but makeup, fashion, also welcome.

We hope that you too will chime in and give us your impressions, support and advice as we go on this global journey together.

We’re so excited to be able to put this together on the Daily Frizz and we hope you will find it interesting, useful and hope you will share with your friends, family and readers.
