Yes! They make an anti-humidity gel that I used for my PV wedding and I was pleased. Not perfect, but much better than I expected.

A little late on this but my stylist told me about a new Aveda product last week and I finally got to try it out and guess what?! IT WORKS! I live in Florida and I do have curly hair so the battle with humidity is an ongoing thing. Itâ€s called Aveda Smooth Infusion Prep Styler Aveda - products that nurture. styling. straight/smooth. smooth infusion style-prep smoother

Makes styling faster, easier.

 

•Exclusive plant infusion—a blend derived from organic aloe, maize and guar bean—creates a smooth surface on hair

•Organic tapioca defends against humidity for up to 12 hours

•Hydrolized wheat protein protects against surface damage from heat styling

I've tried the smooth invusion before and I have to say it is one the best smelling Aveda products. That's my one gripe about Aveda - their products aren't the best smelling I've come across, but they work.

Mel - you should do a before and after picture so we can see how it works!

I was looking at all of the Aveda products last week and will probably end up buying their products to use to tame my daughters and my hair. I am going to have to find the pic I took of my daughter with her big poufy hair in PV- it is hillarious!

She has two ponytails with big poufy curls - she looks like a poodle it is SO funny!

It can't look any worse than mine. I blew mine out the other day with the diffuser on it and my hair kept growing and growing...I was looking like a 1980's rocker chick!

 

I was trying to leave it semi curly for the day - but I ended up straightening it. I was laughing at myself.

 

I love me some big hair, but it was totally out of control!! LOL!!

She looks so cute! Seriously I have Mufasa hair. Like I seriously look like I just stepped out of the jungle. That is why I love Japanese Straightening. It does not breakaway hair. If your hair breaks off then the person is not doing it properly.

Another thing I have heard of is the keratese conditioning treatment. It doesn't permanently straighten your hair but it improves damage and makes it softer and with less frizz. It is def worth a try.

my aunt just had a different straightening process done (maybe brazilian straightening?). it can be done on color treated hair and is topical, so it washed out after a few months, rather than chemical, which grows out. the downside is that supposedly it contains formaldehyde (sp?), which is a cancer-causing agent. that being said, i don't know if my aunt would have done it if there was anything toxic in the formula.

however.

her hair looks great. she should only wash it every other day, which is ok b/c she has thick hair, and she has to use special shampoos and conditioners. so there's another option for you frizzy people with color treated hair.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
