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.

HH SIMONSEN STYLING OIL REVIEW

hair-products-hh-simonsen-500x500px-styling-oil-495x400

Pros:

Smells delicious.

Cons:

Makes my hair oily if I just use a tiny tiny bit too much – and I have very thick hair – this shouldn‘t happen.

More:

This oil smells completely delicious – like you just got out of a hair salon and got showered with flowers (synthetic flowers but still). It‘s easy to apply evenly in hair and gets absorbed quickly – what I don‘t like about it is that it can really make my hair super oily even if I apply a tiny tiny amount, plus even though it has an instant effect of making my hair very soft (in a nice glamorous way ) straight away – this effect wears off pretty quickly (a day to a half).

Joico Moisture Recovery Treatment Balm Review

Pros:

Smells great.

Cons:

My hair is pretty dry after using this mask, so no “wow” effect at all.

More:

My previous experiences with Joico have been pretty awesome, leaving my hair looking like a million (or like I just stepped out of a salon) – so this hair mask left me pretty disappointed. It smells great (like a hair salon but not in the synthetic chemical way but in the pleasant luxurious way), and you need a tiny bit per application – which makes the bottle last for ages (4 months roughly – though I only was my hair twice a week). But the results are pretty disappointing – my hair is pretty dry afterwards, so no fantastic moisturising effect at all. I fix that with oils and leave-in treatments, but still I expected more. Generally my hair looks pretty settled and fixed when I have used this mask which I like – these words might seem weird when talking about hair – but I just look like a crazy gorilla too often after a hair wash, which is why I like when my hair looks “structured” and sleek.

JOICO CURL CRÈME WASH SULFATE-FREE CO+WASH Review

Pros:

Using this gave me some nicely defined curls.

Cons:

My split ends still needed some oil.

More

This is a whole new type of hair product for me. This is both a mask and a leave-in treatment which has different directions of use depending on what hair type you have. You use it to get nice curls and make all that frizz vanish. It basically promises that your curls will become perfect. Verdict: I used it as a hair mask, and not as a leave-in product (which is an option if you have thick hair), my curls have been perfect since I started to use it, and they have stayed that way for about 5 days straight – yes I wash my hair every fifth day. My hair feels soft, but my split ends are not happy and still require a lot of oil. The package is huge and will last me for about 8 months.

HH Simonsen Boss Blow Dryer Review

Pros:

My hair looks very nice after use aka it actually looks like I have a hairdo.

Cons:

This blow dryer weight a lot, so you can‘t really bring it with you anywhere.

More:

I figured since I spend soo much money on hair products, maybe I should also blow dry my hair in style (aka not use a hair drier that was born the same year as I was). Anyways, I usually try to avoid blow-drying my hair and let it dry naturally, since I know that it‘s better for all hair – but sometimes you just don‘t have the time. This  hair drier is one of those seen in hair salons, and it does do some hair magic: I can tell after using it (and lending it to my granny – who is a stellar beauty judge) that it does make a difference – my hair looks much more “done” after using it. My grandmother has a short boob, and she too could see how her hair had a much more “put together” look after this hair drier. Also it does not make my hair feel dry after use, and I really like that you can use cold air too. Minuses: the price and that it is so heavy.

Joico Moisture Recovery Leave-In Moisturizer Review

Pros:

Makes my hair very soft.

Cons:

I have to use a bit of oil to help this leave-in moisturizer.

More:

This is the second leave-in “treatment” I have tried ever (review of the first here) – yes I know disappointing for a beauty blogger, but I have kind of been getting by using my oils and shine sprays. So what new qualities does this leave-in moisturizer bring to the (hair) table? Well it makes my hair very soft, and adds some shine, and also it helps my split ends a bit. And it doesn‘t weight my hair down (no matter how much I spray in my hair). Unfortunately though the split ends still need a bit of help, and I cheat with some oil after using this one. Overall verdict is that I like this treatment, and that it‘s worth the money since the bottle is huge, though if your ends are supersplit and sad you might need some extra help.
