Revlon Professional be Fabulous C.R.E.A.M mask Review (for normal/thick hair)

cream_mask_200ml

Pros:

Makes my hair easy to detangle.

Cons:

Smell is a bit heavy.

More:

I feel a bit like a professor of the be Fabulous line – because I‘ve tested most of the products (see reviews here, here and here). This hair mask is one of my favourites (the strong number one is held by the repairing serum  – I used up the bottle in a month). I like that it makes my hair easy to detangle, and that it doesn‘t have to stay in your hair for too long for effect (I make it 10 minutes usually). The smell is a bit heavy – makes you feel like you are in a hair saloon. It makes my hair OK moisturised – the thing is that it‘s soo cold right now everything on my body is dry (my skin, my eyes, and of course my hair too) – so I feel that I can‘t really give this mask a fair mark on that one, because I‘m using coconut oil on all of my body (except eyes though) to try make all that dryness disappear – and feel that its a bit of an exceptionally dry state my hair is in – that no mask can help me out of (but a combo of a lot of oil/this hair mask/oil mist can)…

Revlon Uniq One Dry Shampoo Review

revlon-uniq-one-dry-shampoo-300ml

Pros:

Doesn‘t leave any white residue.

Cons:

Makes my hair crazy electric.

More:

This dry shampoo doesn‘t grease my hair, as they sometimes can do. It holds its promises that it puts on the front (to refresh and revive/absorb exces oils/adds volume/natural finish…), and most importantly it does not leave white residue. On the downside is that it leaves your hair static electric, and if you have a bit thin hair – like I do, that is not great. I basically use it, brush my hair and leave it in a bun. Wearing it loose is not a possibility, with the crazy electric hair. So basically if you have grease-prone hair, and don‘t want your scalp to show when you wear a bun, this is good before you put it in a bun. The biggest plus for me though (with my thin hair) – is that it gives my hair great volume.

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!

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.

Revlon Professional Uniq One Lotus Flower Treatment review

Pros:

Gives my hair great volume, makes it more smooth and silky.

Cons:

Hasn‘t really prevented any split ends on my part.

More:

My hair is suffering from a serious winter depression – and the winter hasn‘t started yet. It‘s only been 2,5 months since (the summer) my last hair cut, and it already looks bruised and battered, basically like i‘ve been washing it in petroleum for the past months – lifeless, tired, dry, frizzy and no volume. I have to admit that I too have been lazy and not doing my best, barely used oils, hair masks and treatments because I simply don‘t have time, patience or the belief that using a helmet daily (I bike to work) my hair can look anything but OK. So waiting for my appointment at a very fancy hair salon (Saturday please do come sooooon) I have been using this Lotus flower treatment – and I kind of like it. First and foremost it‘s so easy to just spray it on and run, no fuss with waiting for a certain amount of time etc. Secondary, I see an instant effect, which means everything right now (to my hair and self-esteem): my hair gains more volume, is easier to detangle, more shiny and definitely more silky. I also really like that the effect of the spray lasts several days and that it doesn‘t make my hair greasy or dirty. What I don‘t like: the spray promises split end prevention, and though it makes my split ends look more silky and shiny, it has definitely not prevented the birth of new split ends, they just keep on coming…

Review of Style Masters Hairspray Modular 2

 

Pros:

Serves like a hairspray without adding weight. Easy to comb through after applying

Cons:

I don’t see a great effect using this

More:

The Modular Hairspray from REVLON Style Masters “Allows you to control the degree of hold in a hairstyle according to the amount applied, without adding weight.” (from the Hairspray description).

I agree that this hairspray does not add weight to my hair, which is nice. Some hairsprays completely take over my hair’s normal structure and transforms my hair into a stiff monster. This is not the case with the Style Masters hairspray. On the contrary: It leaves my hair easy to comb through after applying. Unfortunately, it is like I didn’t apply the hairspray, if I comb my hair afterwards. Also, I feel that the effect of the hairspray quickly disappears after applying.

I mostly use hairspray for adding volume to my hair, and this might be more of a hold hairspray. If you want to apply extra volume and some hold to your loose hair, fx when going to a party, I would not recommend this hairspray. If you, however, are looking for a light hairspray where your hair can easily be combed through, this might be it for you.

Review of REVLON PROFESSIONAL Sebum Balance Shampoo

 

Pros:

Makes my hair soft and light

Cons:

I don’t see the best results doing what it’s supposed to do: Regulating my oily scalp

More:

The REVLON Sebum Balance Shampoo claims to leave your hair light and balanced by purifying my scalp and regulating sebum production. In case you didn’t know, sebum is “an oily secretion of the sebaceous glands” (Google, 2015). It’s this oiliness that my scalp produces, that I’ve tried to minimise. The thing is that if I wash my hair on Monday morning before heading off to work, my hair is already a bit ‘heavy’, darker and greasier at the scalp on Tuesday, which means that I most likely will do a pony tail to hide the greasiness. On Wednesday morning I have to wash my hair again, unless I want to look like a hobo who hasn’t washed her hair in a year…

If I wash my hair every day to avoid the 2nd day hair greasiness, my hair will simply start to go greasy on day one, so this is not a solution. If I try the good ol’ advice of not washing my hair for a week (or more) so my hair should “get used to not being washed so often” and thereby “decrease the production of sebum/grease”, I just end up looking like a hobo for the time that I don’t wash my hair, and my hair will go back to normal after that (I tried it a couple of times now).

As you can hear, the greasy hair annoys me. If I’m on a festival or are travelling, I’m very dependant on being able to wash my hair often, which has seemed to be not-so-easy on the go. On the other hand, there’s some great dry shampoos to help me out, but let’s face it; I can’t live on dry shampoo my whole life, and the effect is not 100% like freshly washed hair.

But back to the Sebum Balance Shampoo: It smells nice, I only have to use it once (sometimes I have to apply shampoo twice when washing my hair, to make sure it’s cleaned). Further, the Sebum Balance Shampoo makes my hair feel very soft, tameable and  light.

For the balancing part: it doesn’t work wonders regulating my oily scalp,. It’s a nice shampoo, but there’s only a small difference to notice on how greasy my hair becomes. However, in this product you get a fine, professional shampoo, which has a fair price.

Review of REVLON PROFESSIONAL Instant Hydra Balm

 

Pros:

My hair looks healthy and hydrated

Cons:

Don’t expect miracles

More:

The REVLON Instant Hydra Balm is a balm for frequent use. It’s supposed to moisturise the hair at its core and reinforce the structure against every day aggressions. Hair should become naturally soft and shiny without weighting it down when using this balm.

I have used this balm around three times a week for the last month. In the winter time, my hair tends to get very static electric, which is really annoying. Further, I have medium-long hair, which means that I really need to take care of the ends, otherwise they look damaged and thin.

My goal with using the Instant Hydra Balm as a conditioner was to keep my hair (especially the ends) hydrated and to ‘survive’ the winter months. I have an oily scalp, so I only use conditioner in the ends.

This balm worked out really nice for me. It is not a miracle maker, but my hair looks healthy and hydrated, while it feels light and is easy to comb through.

To hydrate your hair even more, I recommend using a hair mask once or twice a week. Otherwise, this balm does the job. It’s only sold at hairdressing salons, which ensures the quality (you won’t get a product pumped with silicone and the other junk they put in some supermarket products).
