Protect & Repair Your Hair

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?

    I love that oil! Have you tried the leave in treatment from the same range? Its amazing. Leaves my hair supersoft and it only needs left it for a few minutes to work its magic! The oil doesn’t seem like a good enough ‘goodwill’ gesture considering you had to cut the damage out, but at least you like it 🙂 I recently emailed a magazine who promoted the got 2 b straight product to show them how many bad reviews it has got!
