I am sure most women are like me and have a high expectation of achieving beautiful, shiny, strong hair just like all of the Disney Princesses we used to watch as little ones… Sleeping Beauty and her flawless long blonde hair was always the dream for me. But in reality you wake up looking more like Cousin IT and even then it’s on a bad hair day. I am always looking at ways and products to finally make the vision of perfection a reality. After hearing my woes the lovelies at Umberto Giannini gave me the chance to try their ‘Mend My Hair’ collection which they told me would give my poor abused (straighteners, bleached… the list goes on for what I put it through) the much needed TLC. Here are my thoughts.
Firstly the ‘rebuild strengthening damage hair shampoo’ was unlike any other I’ve tried before, as it didn’t feel like shampoo at all, but more like a conditioner (not just me that gets that horrible dry stripped feeling afterwards?). It gave the feeling of being nourished and healthy, and on the plus side it also has a lovely fresh scent to it.
After a delightful wash, I used the ‘rehab salon smooth damage repair protein spray’ which I must admit I never use probably causing even more destruction to my hair without some sort of protection. They inform you that it’s advisable to use it before blow drying your hair as it also has a heat protection formula in it. In the past where I have used these types of ‘protection sprays’ or ‘protein sprays’ I have always found them to be a little cakey and sticky on the hair once dry, but this one didn’t.
Thanks again to the lovelies at Umberto Giannini!
