Last week I spoke about the Paul Mitchell Strength range I’ve been using in an effort to resurrect my weak hair, now I’m going to tell you what I’m using to protect it from further damage and restore it’s condition and shine. I know I’ve reviewed this Styling Spray before but that was months ago and I have been using it almost daily since so I thought a follow up was in order. Firstly I believed it only to be a heat activated spray which would hold my style somewhat like a mousse. I’ve since learned it’s also a heat protector so out with my Trevor Sorbie and in with my John Frieda it was since this is dual purpose and I also prefer the smell. It definitely holds my blow dry in place better than a regular heat protector and it’s the styling properties that encourage me to use it before every heat treatment – which I’m usually too lazy to do. – £5.99 for 100ml here
The oil was actually sent to me not as a PR sample but as a ‘goodwill gesture’ when Schwartzkopf ruined my hair with their ‘Got2b Play It Straight’ kit – read about that here. Not one to hold a grudge (yeah right) I gave the oil a go and I actually really liked it. It’s described as a ‘light finishing treatment’ so unlike my moroccan oil which can be a little heavy on dry hair this is perfect for smoothing split ends and adding shine after I’ve blowd ried or straightened and it’s looking a bit frazzled. I don’t use it as a treatment but in place of a serum and I would definitely recommend it for you oil freaks that are always looking for something new to try! – £18.56 for 100ml here
Have you tried either of these? Thoughts?
