Revlon Professional Be Fabulous Cream Shampoo and Conditioner for normal/thick hair Review

41kzq5tw5tl-_sy355_

Pros:

Gives my hair great volume.

Cons:

My hair looks dirty already 2 days after use.

More:

I think this shampoo and conditioner are very good budget options to my usual Bamboo and Alterna products (which I love but are pretty pricey). They give my hair great volume, smell good and my hair looks very “put together” after use (aka it looks like I actually have a hair stylist and some kind of vision when it comes to my hair – and not just an explosion of volume). The conditioner makes my hair feel soft immediately and can be used solo without a mask since it is so hydrating and nourishing.

Since I have thick hair I only wash it once every 5 days, but when using this shampoo and conditioner my hair looked dirty already after 2-3 days – which is a big minus for me. I made my granny use this shampoo and conditioner too and she had the same result.

EKSPERIENCE HYDRO NUTRITIVE – HYDRO-NUTRI NOURISHING MASK Review

 

full_eks-hidro-nutritive-2501

Pros:

My hair looks more shiny after use.

Cons:

Doesn‘t suit people who already have soft hair (like moi).

More:

After using this mask my hair became very soft, almost like a baby‘s hair. It also got some extra volume and looked a bit more “alive” (seriously any shine on a grey day and I start calling it “alive” – bare with me, winter is almost over)…Since my hair already is pretty soft, this mask wasn‘t for me – as more “softness” makes it hard for me to fix my hair, since it keeps on going in other directions then I want it to. Since this mask is made in Spain I think its target users are people with less soft but more thick hair. But I did like that it made my coloured hair look more vivid, and I could really see a big difference before and after use.

This mask smells a bit of citrus, is easy to use and one only needs little per use – so it lasts for long.

d:fi Beach Spray Review

dfi-beach-spray-150ml-1087-154-0150_1

Pros:

I see no effect what so ever.

Cons:

Has an UV protection.

More:

I had been looking forward to surfer waves in my thin, flat Scandinavian hair when I started using this beach spray. I did‘t get any of that. I can‘t see any difference in my hair before and after use of this spray – maybe it‘s even a bit more flat and thin after use. It does smell good of coconut though, and it has an UV protection which is a plus. I will use it to protect my hair from the sun in the summer but won‘t expect anything more then that.

Revlon 45 Days Total Color Care 2in1 Stunning Highlights Review

revlon-45-days-total-color-care-conditioning-shamp

Pros:

I can postpone a visit to the hairdresser with 10 days using this one.

Cons:

Smells a bit synthetic.

More:

I can finally write this review – since today I have actually used this shampoo for 50 days. I have short colored hair and have been experiencing the same problem over and over again – after a hair cut I‘m happy and satisfied with my hair – until after about 4 weeks the color starts to fade and my hair starts looking pretty “dull”. Since I simply can‘t afford to color my hair once a month (don‘t think its healthy either) – I usually walk around with “tired/dull” hair for another couple of weeks. So I was pretty excited but also sceptical to trying this new shampoo.

The shampoo is sulfate free which I really like. Sulfate is usually hard to completely remove from the hair, which makes my hair dry and irritates my scalp – which of course I hate. So I could definitely feel that this shampoo was sulfur free since there was no thick mass of shampoo that one had to wash out. The easiest and cheapest way for brands to create lathering shampoo is by adding sulphates. This shampoo doesn‘t lather – like shampoos usually do – and that can feel a bit unusual but one gets used to it after a couple of weeks. One also gets used to the blue/silver color, and that the shampoo smells a bit of chemicals. So I felt a bit frightened applying it in my hair – but decided to give it a 50 days chance.

I‘m satisfied with this shampoo, since my hair still looks “respectable” ( equals less dull) and the color looks totally ok – which means that I can wait another extra 10 days before heading to the hairdresser – which is great.

The shampoo doesn‘t give me a feeling of luxury due to its smell and color. Since it doesn‘t lather I use more per wash then I would have with a lathering shampoo (I think it‘s just the innate feeling of my hair won‘t get clean if it does‘t lather).

The shampoo is supposed to give UV protection – I haven‘t been able to explore that since its been freezing and grey outside. It also protects agains heat which is a plus.

d:fi Dry Shampoo Review

11369996-2364445487821718

Pros:

Neutral color – isn‘t white – so I don‘t have to spend ages combing it out.

Cons:

Hair can feel a bit dry when I use this shampoo two days in a row.

More:

Before New Years eve my hair got pretty oily – and I just didn‘t have the time to wash it: so I took a big risk (for my hair – not in life hehe) – I used a dry shampoo for the first time, before a big party (seriously those facebook photos of New Years eve usually hunt me for the rest of the year).

This dry shampoo smells very discreet – or it rather doesn‘t smell of anything which is superb since I almost always get an attack of bad cough after using dry shampoo. The color is neutral – which is fantastic since most dry shampoos are white – and one has to use looong loong time getting it out of ones hair.

The third and last plus is the price: it is cheap and the bottle is huge so it lasts a very long time.

Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Moisture Intense Oil Creme Pre-Shampoo Treatment Review

alterna-caviar-moisture-intense-oil-creme-pre-treatment

Pros:

Makes my hair much more silky.

Cons:

The price.

More:

My beauty conclusion of 2016 is that my hair has definitely been the part of my body which I have been investing on most – beauty wise (brain wins in the category everything else – at least I like to think so while reading that stupid gossip mag..). This hair treatment is used pre-shampoo to give the shampoo and conditioner the chance of an “optimal” performance and its promised that this treatment will “leave your strands soft and smooth”. Verdict: I can certainly feel a difference in my hair becoming much more silky after 10 minutes of use, and it also makes my hair more smooth after wash. Minus – expensive product and I think I still prefer my oils to this pre-hair treatment if I have to choose one smoothness booster for my hair.

Alterna Bamboo Smooth Anti-Frizz AM Daytime Smoothing Blowout Balm Review

Pros:

Gives my hair more volume.

Cons:

Is hard to divide evenly into hair.

More:

Even though we all know that using a blow dryer is the express way to dry hair, I just can‘t help myself – I love it when my hair looks big and dramatic – it really spices up these dark, rainy autumn days for me. This blow-out cream smells really good (saloon blow-dry good), but is hard to divide evenly into my hair (and it‘s not even that thick or crazy). But it does add extra volume to my hair and makes it look more salon blow-dried. Its pretty pricy but you need a small amount per use which is a real plus.

Review of Orofluido Asia Zen Control Elixir

Pros:

Makes my hair shinier and frizz-free.

Cons:

Only lasts for one evening.

More:

I have have waited for a new line from Orofluido ever since falling in love with this oil. This elixir is supposed to help frizzy hair, providing an anti-humidity shield and increase shine. First and foremost this elixir is pretty oily, so I never dared using too much of it, instead preferring to apply it in dirty hair for a quick fix-up. So maybe my review will differ from those using it on an every-day basis.

Using the elixir I could really see how my hair became more shiny, frizz-free and got a nicer, more polished look, without any extra softness though. Also, I like the heavy smell of perfume of this elixir. The minuses: you need much per use (though I do have big craxy hair), effect lasts for only a day and does not make my hair more soft.

Review of Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Milk Leave-In Conditioning Spray

Pros:

Really helps my split and dry ends.

Cons:

The effect wears off after 2-3 days (I only wash my hair every fifth day).

More:

My split and dry hair ends are a constant problem. Even a week after cutting my hair I can feel how they become dry and tired again. Usually I fight this problem with a lot of oil , thus this was my first every leave-in conditioner. I was not left disappointed, using a generous amount on my split ends after washing my hair I really noticed a big difference, my hair feeling much softer and having a healthier look.. Despite over-applying this cream a few times (in moments of desperation) my hair never felt oily, and though the effect wore off after a couple of days, and I still had to supplement with some oil I really like this conditioner. A minus is its synthetic smell.
