Umberto Giannini has recently revamped his entire range and having never tried the brand before I thought this was an ideal time to try. Having straight hair I decided to try 2 of the Smooth range of products and 2 from the Indulge range as we all know the effects winter can have on the hair.

Umberto Giannini 60 Second Smooth Pre-Shampoo Treatment

From the Smooth range I trialled the 60 second Smooth Pre-shampoo Treatment. As the name suggests this is applied to wet hair for 60 seconds, before rinsing and following with shampoo and conditioner. Containing Jojoba and Coconut oil it claims to help reduce breakage and adds intense moisturisation and shine. Find it here

Umberto Giannini Nourishing Shampoo & Conditioner

I followed this with the Indulge Wash Nourishing Shampoo and Indulge Care Nourishing Conditioner. The Nourishing Shampoo is sulphate free and indulges the senses whilst cleansing and moisturising. The Nourishing Conditioner also provides moisture and nourishment.

I found that using all three together on my fine hair left it feelingquite greasy. I tried again the next time I washed it,  but left out the 60 Second Smooth Pre-Shampoo conditioner. Again I had quite a greasy, heavy feeling to my hair. I live in a hard water area so I don’t know if it’s that or the fact my hair is fine that caused the issue.

I did try the 60 Second Pre-Shampoo Treatment before using my normal shampoo and got a lovely result. If, like me, you have fine hair all three together may prove too much hydration. If you have thick or dry hair however these might just be perfect for you. It’s a shame as the shampoo and conditioner really did smell wonderful and they certainly felt luxurious whilst I was using them. Find them here

Umberto Giannini Weather Proof Finish Hairspray


The final step was to use the Weather Proof Finish Anti-Humidity Hairspray. It’s designed to add shine and provide medium hold whilst combating the frizzy hair caused by humidity. Again the scent of the product is designed to delight the olfactory sense. I found this to be a great every day, non-sticky hairspray. For nights out where extra hold is required this may not be the best product on the market but I really liked it.

It’s unfortunate I had mixed results, but I would like to try other products in the range to see if I have better success as many others rave about them.
