Revlon Professional be Fabulous C.R.E.A.M. anti-frizz mask Review

Revlon-Professional-Be-Fabulous-Texture-Care-Smooth-Hair-CREAM-Mask-71620

Pros:

Makes my hair more smooth – as promised.

Cons:

Doesn‘t really help make frizz to disappear.

More:

I‘m trying to watch my budget – and this hair mask fits my new not spending too much money on my hair idea. And the struggle with frizzy hair has been utterly real for the past warm weeks for me – so I was curious if this mask could help the frizz. Verdict: my hair becomes more smooth as promised, but the frizz doesn‘t really disappear – which is super annoying – and against what was promised. So this mask will probably not be repurchased again, though I think it is pretty decent for its price point.

REVLON PROFESSIONAL BE FABULOUS C.R.E.A.M. CURL DEFINING SHAMPOO REVIEW

4623787

Pros:

Great for crazy curly hair.

Cons:

You need a lot per use.

More:

This is my favourite shampoo this year so far. I have  a pretty costly habit when it comes to hair care – and I really don‘t settle for less – so this is a bit of a “budget” product to me. Now don‘t get me wrong – I know I‘m privileged and spending tons of money on hair care is definitely a priority for me (just as buying living of carrots and omelettes for a week in a row to save money is too) . So I was pleasantly surprised but how great this shampoo works for my hair. My hair is messy and curly – and already after the first use I noticed my curls more defined – which I love. My hair also became smoother and more hydrated. Basically this is a great budget option for crazy curly hair like mine. Also, my hair usually looks pretty gloom a day before its time for a wash – but after I started using this shampoo my hair looks great all the way – and I even wash it a day later. And I will definitely re-purchase this shampoo. Negatives? You need a lot per use.

Revlon Professional be Fabulous Volume Texturizer Review

revlon-professional-be-fabulous-daily-care-fine-volume-texturizer-150ml

Pros:

Gives my hair great volume.

Cons:

No hydration at all as promised.

More:

This texturizer promises not only volume and great texture, but also hydration and hair repairment. The volume part works brilliantly – I really feel my hair is thicker after use, and the effect lasts until the next wash. I also can‘t feel that I‘m having an extra product in my hair – so the texture is very “natural”, which is a big plus. The minuses are that my hair is super dry still, so I see no benefit in that department, and I‘m not sure if this texturizer has any effect on that at all. Would I re-purchase this product? If I‘m desperate for volume I will.

REVLON PROFESSIONAL BE FABULOUS ANTI AGE SERUM REVIEW

REPR0060H_1_L

Pros:

Easy to apply due to the pipette.

Cons:

Doesn‘t result in that much extra shine (which was promised…)

More:

This serum fights the visible signs of ageing – what precisely that is I‘m not sure – I don‘t think it can fight grey hair (only a great colourist can do that). I got this one as a desperate effort to save my hair from turning all grey – I don‘t know if it did that – but it made my hair softer and most importantly – it made my scalp less itchy. Usually after washing my hair, my scalp gets really itchy the next day – which usually wears off. Sometimes I could wake up from my itchy scalp in the middle of the night (and get pretty annoyed). But after I started massage in this serum that was all gone.

This serum is a luxury add on to my already excessive hair routine (shampoo/conditioner(hair mask/leave-in conditioner/hair oil). The price is reasonable so it feels like a nice additional luxury, but if you are not suffering from an itchy scalp or your hair is not screaming for more shine or moisture, then its a products you can live without.

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 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.

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.

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…
