It smells amazing!
Now the instructions tell you to apply this to the roots and lengths one section at a time, then blow dry, and then move to the next section and repeat. If I had read that before trying it, then I might have been put off because I am terrible at blow drying my hair, and the idea of managing it in sections seems almost impossible.
The good news is, I didn’t read the instructions, and went straight in gung-ho, spraying it right into the roots and through the lengths, brushing it through with the Tangle Teezer to ensure it was evenly distributed and then blasted it about 80% dry with my BaByliss Diamond Dryer. I then let any dampness dry naturally and I had a tonne of volume that I wouldn’t normally have.
I finished by gently waving the ends and this was how it looked.
What I love about this is that, although it adds texture to the help to thicken and volumise, the hair is still able to shine and look luminous. It’s excellent!
