Revlon Be Fabulous End Repairing Serum Review

revlon-be-fabulous-hair-recovery-ends-repair-serum

Pros:

Makes my split ends look more “healthy” and taken care off.

Cons:

You need a lot per use of this serum.

More:

Split ends is one of my biggest hair issues (except a DIY blond dye which keeps me up at night), so I jump onto any product which promises to help! I have been using this serum both in wet and dry hair, with equally satisfying effect. The serum is absorbed very fast and makes my split ends more soft, hides away frizz in my hair and has a great overall effect. With overall effect I mean that my hair looks very sleek and much more healthy then it actually is (by actually is I count the time since I last visited a hairdresser for a trim).

Alterna Bamboo Shine Luminous Shine Shampoo and Conditioner Review

alterna-bamboo-shine-shampoo-conditioner-duo-1000ml-500x500

Pros:

Makes my hair smooth and gives it a very nice texture

Cons:

The price

More:

Those of you who have followed this blog for a while, know that I‘m a junky for Bamboo hair care – especially their shampoos, conditioners and hair oil. They are a bit pricey – but nothing beats a good hair day – in terms of confidence. I actually heard a beauty blogger say that putting an effort into having your hair looking nice is much more boosting for your overall feeling of good, then having put effort into your make-up that day. And the more I think of it, the more I agree.

Back to this shampoo and conditioner – you need little per use, a bottle of their smaller sizes (not the one you see on the picture) lasts me for about 3 months. My hair feels very strong and healthy after use. What about the shine then – which is the biggest promise of these two bottles – well my hair turned pretty shiny after use. But nothing great out of proportion fantastic. Though since I feel that the overall effect on my hair is soo great I still love these two. Big minus – their price.

REVLON PROFESSIONAL BE FABULOUS HAIR RECOVERY Shampoo For DAMAGED HAIR REVIEW

16457eac20051bb5ee2416ea13d9a32d

Pros:

Nice package.

Cons:

No effect on my dry and damaged hair.

More:

I have my Revlon favourites – and this one is not one of them unfortunately.  Just like the conditioner (read review here) – my hair gets greasy after two days of use, and I simply don‘t see any effect on my beyond dry hair (which is crying for help). My split ends are just the same – and even though I think my hair looks pretty sleak the first two days after use, I hate when it gets greasy on the third day. I think the package is nice, and the smell although a bit synthetic – nice too..But I would not repurchase this one, and will continue to look for another remedy for my very dry and tired hair.

Revlon Professional be Fabulous Hair Recovery Conditioner for damaged hair Review

revlon-be-fabulous-hair-recovery-cream-keratin-con

Pros:

Lathers well.

Cons:

My hair is greasy two days after use.

More:

Dear readers, today we are on a rampage..not cause we are well rested after a sunny vacation but because vacation is so close that we can actually see it, and therefore we decided to post twice in one day. That rarely happens for us, since a review should be well thought out and we test everything for ages before giving you our opinions, to make sure they are well thought out.

Anyways, back to this conditioner – it feels very good when you apply it – lathery and promising. But the smell is a bit synthethic (too much like a hair salon). After use my hair looks good for a few days – maybe one or two – and then slowly turns more and more greasy. Since I rarely get greasy hair this conditioner gets thumbs down big time!! It didn‘t give my hair that “anti-damage” boost that one would expect either!

Caviar Anti-Aging Infinite Color Hold Vibrancy Serum Review

alte0235h_1_l

Pros:

Makes my hair shiny and health looking.

Cons:

Can‘t really notice any color protection.

More:

I got this serum in hope of protecting my dyed hair as it turns dry and the color fades a few weeks after dying it. This serum also promises to protect your hair against the sun and to add shine.

I can‘t really tell if it has protected my hair color – I just can‘t see any difference. But my hair definitely looks more healthy and my split ends are less visible (where did they go -. I don‘t know – promise I haven‘t cut them off!). When used after washing my hair it provided shine to my hair. But if I use it between washes it makes my thin hair look greasy so I can only recommend to use it straight after you washed your hair.

Alterna Caviar CC Cream Review

10850175-1364444948821273

Pros:

Smells very nice

Cons:

Makes my hair look greasy when applied to dry hair.

More:

This cc cream promises your hair everything in the world (moisture, shine, softness, UV protection, strength…and 5 more things since its a 10 in one..). I have classic thin Scandinavian hair…so I constantly dream of some va-va-voom feeling..therefore I had very high hopes. First time I used it on towel dry hair and when used in combination with other volume products, I could see more shiny and looked more sleak and my split ends were less visible. Other times when I have used it on dry and not newly washed hair I just got the result of greasy hair and felt pretty disappointed.

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.
