If you get the frizzies and you’re looking for a cure, you may want to sit up and pay attention—unless you’re a fan of bed head—than go away and put your hat on.
I am a frizzy-haired person. Between dry weather, the blow dryer (which I wield often), pollution and exercise—I can often look like a Chia pet. (See accompanying revolting photos.)
So when my editor asked me to try the Lubricity System, I originally thought I’d have to create a database for my hair—the word ‘system’ threw me. Thankfully that was not that case.
I received 4 pretty bottles in the mail along with a pamphlet and a list of eight steps to shiny smooth hair.
Time suck was the first thing that flashed to mind as I marched into the shower with the first two products (the shampoo and conditioner)— then came the blow dry and the next step: ‘Penetrate’ (that’s the name of the lotion folks—stay outta of the gutter.) I slathered on an entire bottle of clear liquid Penetrate to my newly clean dry head, put my plastic cap on and waited for 15 minutes as it did its magic. All was well until it started to burn. The BF stared at me anxiously and warned me that ‘bald’ may not be a good look on me—that’s when I re-checked the website. It does warn customers that they may feel a little tingling and burning if they have sensitive skin. I guess I have sensitive skin, and I was feeling brave, so I plunged on.
Next step: pour on the entire bottle of Encapsulate—and put plastic cap back on and sit for another 15 minutes. Ninety minutes later it was finally time for the final step —a rinse and another blow dry. This is where my hair usually goes crazy frizzy—but as I dried it all very randomly —no sectioning of hair —there was no frizz. I stared at the mirror in astonishment. My Chia pet ‘hair muffs’ were gone—and my hair looked great– salon finish great.
The stuff works—and all of the ingredients are naturally derived (at least that’s what the website says) sourced from items such as green apples, coconuts and palm nuts.
The product was created by Dr. Boyce Clark, a scientist, and dad who was trying to tame the frizzy locks of his daughter. It looks like he succeeded.
Downside: It takes up to 2 hours to complete the steps–and your scalp may burn a bit. Also, the stuff is not cheap—my 4 bottles cost 170 dollars.
Well—whoever said beauty is cheap? That’s right, no one.

BTW—Lubricity says the results from their products can last anywhere from 3-6 months depending on your hair… we shall see.
