ILES FORMULA

Tired of seeing split ends and dry limp hair?  I know I certainly was with mine until I met celebrity hairstylist Wendy Iles at last month’s Fashion Preview in Montreal, and she introduced me to her line of high performance hair care products that have certainly lived up to their stellar reputation and worked wonders on my own head!

Generally I am skeptical when it comes to using serums or silk based products, as they often leave my thick hair feeling sticky and weighed down.  I was glad to see that despite being jam packed with nourishing silk proteins, oils and vitamin B5, the formula remained lightweight and provided enough moisture to give my hair a good volume once styled.

As Wendy explained to me personally, her formula was specially conceived as a way to tame the tortured and fragile celebrity hair that she often encountered on sets and shoots.

Best of all, her three steps formula (shampoo, conditioner and finishing serum ) works on all hair types, is paraben free and not only nourishes and restores the overall health of your strands, but will also protect your hair from harsh environmental stressors and pollution ( UV rays, humidity and free radicals)

 

 


With samplers kits available for trial online, I recommend adding ILES Formula to your weekly hair care routine.  Savor the gentle white flower scent and start feeling like a movie star!
