This three-piece set from Lubricity Labs comes in a specialty bag and contains Q-Shampoo for gentle cleansing without stripping hair of natural oils, Q-Condition for blocking frizz and softening and smoothing hair, and Q-Restore Smoothing Masque for use once or twice a week in place of your normal conditioner to give hair maximum conditioning, frizz-fighting softness without weighing it down. While pricey, these products are like nothing you’ve tried before. Q-shampoo leaves hair feeling light and fluffy as soon as you rinse away its suds, and true to its claims, Q-Condition will have tresses completely frizz-free once your hair is dry, an impressive feat to say the least.
