What do I want to have in common with the Brazilian beauties like Giselle Bundchen, Adriana Limos, and the stunning Victoria Secret model Flavia de Oliveira? Well of course those bodies but that’s not going to happen. I’ll settle for those flowing locks instead and mine comes courtesy of PLASTICA FIOS haircare.
These are the 4 products that I’ve used for the last few months. When I was in rehab my husband would bring me some of the packages I received to cheer me up. The only thing I kept from those boxes was the Plastica Fios Smoothing Shampoo, Smoothing Conditioner and Primer. I honestly didn’t care one whit about beauty but I did care about cleanliness. I was in a wheelchair so I needed help showering and I couldn’t wait until an aide came to help me twice a week. I loved using my pretty lilac bottles and feeling like me again.
Plastica Fios’ tagline is Hair Plastic Surgery. I love that! The products are for smooth shiny hair that helps reduce frizz.
The first two steps to having hydrated, frizz free hair are the Smoothing Shampoo and Smoothing Conditioner ($20 each). I really appreciate that they are numbered, I don’t have to squint in the shower to figure out which to pick up. Both are white creamy products that are very moisturizing yet don’t leave hair greasy at all. They contain a combination of acai oil and arginine that helps to nourish your hair. There is a slight pleasant fragrance but one that doesn’t linger. I know some people love fragrance in products but I’m not one of those.
I use the Plastica Fios Primer ($15) more often than the mask. This is a thin cream that I pump onto my hands and then smooth through my hair. The leave in conditioner does 5 things for you:
- Thermal Protection
- Restores Hair Fiber
- Prevents Breakage
- Prevents Frizz
- Provides long-lasting smoothness
The Instant Reconstruction Mask ($24) is a once a week treatment that I use just 1 to 2 times a month. I no longer wash my hair daily so I don’t feel I need this extra hydration that often. My favorite time to use this is a few days before getting my hair color-treated. It adds some extra nourishment and makes my hair wonderfully soft.
It’s a luxuriously rich cream that your hair will appreciate. It helps strengthen hair and gives you that Brazilian model look.
Plastica Fios is a line developed by Cadiveu Professional: “Developed in Brazil, the Cadiveu Professional brand uses natural ingredients and innovative green technologies so consumers can get the hair they have always wanted. Cadiveu is an eco-friendly company contributing to waste reduction and producing 100 percent recyclable packaging and never testing on animals.”
Besides giving my hair a beautiful look, I appreciate that these products use natural eco-friendly ingredients. While I’m never going to be tall with legs like a supermodel, I can sure use work on producing beautiful hair with Plastica Fios. — Marcia
