Revlon Be Fabulous Fine Hair Volumizing Spray Review

volume_hair_spray

Pros:

Gives my hair nice structure…

Cons:

…and more volume (though not as much as one could expect)..

More:

I have very fine hair – and of course dream of volume (why can‘t one just be happy with what one‘s got?!)..This spray gives my hair more volume (not crazy much but enough) and texture (aka it doesn‘t “fly around” as much – as it usually does)..It smells very nice of perfume, not chemical or of candy – which I really appreciate.

I have in the past experienced rashes from volume sprays – but not from this one – even though I spray it on like 15 – 20 sprays daily.

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.

Eksperience 6-Vitamins Cocktail Filler Review

boost-6-vitamins-cocktail-filler

Pros:

Moisturises my hair well.

Cons:

Not sure vitamins can be absorbed by dead materia – aka your hair.

More:

I like the idea of using hair products one can leave-in (cause I‘m lazy let‘s face it and I feel very economic – no waste of product since its all left in). This vitamin boost filler comes in a glass jar, and is usually sold at salons – I consider myself taking a big “step-up” using salon products – which is new to me. It is supposed to rebuilt and give loads of moisture to the hair. I haven‘t been able to find information online if our hair can actually absorb vitamins – since its dead materia- but I‘m desperate and I‘ll put anything in my dry hair that sounds healthy (vitamins are good for you to eat – why not put it in the hair? I know blond logic).

My verdict – you only need a little per use. It doesn‘t make your hair greasy and it makes my hair feel very moisturised – though you can‘t replace your conditioner with this filler  – you need more.

Alterna Bamboo Volume Abundant Shampoo and Conditioner Review

41e66gkgaml-_sy355_

Pros:

Gives great natural volume indeed.

Cons:

The shampoo and conditioner smell a bit too strong for me.

More:

I have had some up and downs with my hair lately (it just looks and feels tired – just like me) – and these two have come in handy. The shampoo and conditioner make my hair very soft and I don‘t use any additional products except hair mask and some oil on my split ends and my hair still looks totally “fixed” and in place. Like I just visited a hairdresser. But the volume in my hair rather subtle, so if you are locking for some crazy volume this is the wrong shampoo and conditioner, also a lot of natural volume in my hair and don‘t know how much of it comes from the shampoo and conditioner and how much is just my own.

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.

Our best hair products – the complete list

3738large

It‘s no secret hair products take up a lot of space on this blog. Therefore we decided to compose a list of our all time favourite hair products:

  1. Best hair maskKiehl’s Olive Fruit Reparative hair pak – I have been using this mask for the past two years and ALWAYS return to it – actually its the only thing from Kiehl‘s I‘ve stayed faithful to. The mask makes my hair instantly (after 10 minutes) soft, easy to de-tangle and just makes it look much better. This blog is more about what you shouldn‘t buy rather then what you should buy and this mask is probably the only time I‘ve urged my readers to try something so urgently. By try I mean getting a sample of it. Read full review here.
  2. Best hair oilOrofluido hair oil – this oil is the oil of all oils, and those of you who have read a few reviews of hair products on this blog know that I always refer back to it. This oil makes my hair instantly soft and smells of heaven. And its a great budget buy – a bottle has lasted me for 2 years. Trust me I have tried a lot of oils and nothing comes close to it (yes we are talking about you Moroccan oil). See full review here.
  3. Best dry shampood:fi dry shampoo – most beauty/fashion/french bloggers refer to Klorane dry shampoo as the best thing out there. We have reviewed it (read review here) and we really really really liked it. But seriously there must be other dry shampoos out there which are just as good and keep a good level of quality..answer: hell yeah. Sure d:fi dry shampoo doesn‘t ooze of french sophistication but its good quality, the color is neutral (not traces of white in my hair yey) and its cheap. Much better than Klorane if you look at it from a price point – which I know many of you are. Read the full review here.
  4. Best shampoo and conditionerBamboo smooth anti-frizz shampoo and conditioner – this shampoo and conditioner are my favourites because they give my hair that va va voom feeling and a bottle lasts for about 6 months (which might justify the steep price). Considering frizz one of my hairs biggest enemies these bottles have been saviours. Read full review here.
  5. Best quick fixBamboo Kendi oil dry oil mist – this oil is my go when I need a quick solution – some shine and nice texture. It doesn‘t replace a hair cut and won‘t fight dry ends but It‘s a big favourite – partly again cause a bottle lasts for years and the shine adds some well-needed confidence from sad hair days.

This is our list, please feel free to share your favourite hair products with us and we will do out best to feature them in the blog. Or do you disagree with some of our choices – let us know – we love all feed-back!

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.

Alterna Caviar INTENSE OIL CRÈME SHAMPOO and Deep Conditioner Review

1

Pros:

I can go a week without washing my hair when using this duo.

Cons:

I still need to use my oils to make my hair soft.

More:

I have mixed feeling about this duo – being a huge fan of expensive but “oh soo effective” Alterna I had huge expectations. First and foremost this shampoo and conditioner smell great, they are a bit hard to wash out and lather well. What about the result? Well when using these two I can go for 1 week without washing my hair and it still looks great on the last days. It‘s not very easy to detangle and I don‘t feel that extra moisture which is promised – leaving me a bit disappointed.

Alterna Bamboo Anti-Frizz PM Overnight Smoothing Treatment Review

Pros:

Makes my hair much softer.

Cons:

Takes a while (10 minutes for me) to wash out of my hair.

More:

Those who follow this blog know that this autumn has really been a struggle for my hair: it‘s soo dry I‘ve wanted to chop it off quit a few times, and despite using tons of products and getting a new hair cut I still don‘t feel that wow sensation (probably cause I‘ve been using shampoo that just didn‘t do it for me for the past 2 months, review coming up shortly) but also because at this time of the year everything becomes dry and tired: my hair, skin, cuticles, eyes …But this hair mask has really helped me out: it‘s an overnight treatment, so you have to have plan when using it on beforehand (so you don‘t run to work wearing it in the morning), since it takes a while to wash out. It gets absorbed very fast so you don‘t feel like you are walking around with products in your hair in the evening and the result was very pleasing: my hair feels much softer and looks more glossy and alive, so I‘m happy and with a little help from some old friends  I feel my hair is getting back into the game (and thank god for that cause walking around with hair that looks like a dry wig really is a self-esteem killer).
