What it delivers:
It took me a while to figure out how to use this product. At first, I used it the way Youtube beauty gurus did (hi Amelia Liana and Claire Marshall) which was to spray it directly on my roots on second day hair. That made my hair a sticky, oily mess. Yuck!
Then, I used it by turning my hair upside down and spraying my roots on second day hair. This way worked better than the first way but left my hair feeling dry. My hair felt crunchy at the ends and wasn’t soft or touchable. The upside of this was that I was able to manipulate my hair into a bun which would normally be impossible as my hair is often too slick.
I got volume out of this product but not at my roots…the volumizing started midway on my hair. I did however, get lots of texture and grit which my hair lacks during first and second day hair. I’m not sure that this worked as a dry shampoo for me as I still prefer my old stand-by dry shampoo from Principessa Beauty. As for the famous fruity-floral scent, I like it am able to appreciate the appeal of the scent for many beauty gurus out there.
Price point: 8 fl oz for CAD $42 or 2.2 fl oz for CAD $23
Final thoughts: I’m undecided on my feelings for this product. On one hand, it does what it promises to do which is to give volume, texture and grit to hair. On the other hand, it’s expensive for what it is… a fancy smelling hairspray. Could I live without this? Most likely. If I cared enough and had loads of money to spend on my hair, I’d re-purchase. I’ll use it until the product is done and that’ll be it. I am intrigued by this brand eventhough it is not all-natural…
