– PR SAMPLE –
So Schwarzkopf sent me a bundle of hair-care goodies to try out on my long locks the other week. An update on my hair, it’s actually close to being the length it once was before I got it chopped off for charity which you can read about on a previous post. Anyway, I’ve never really tried much of Schwarzkopf as a brand so I was excited to try out some of their new products on my own hair.
I received three products in total all aimed at aiding curls. Now, I have no curls whatsoever so I thought at first that this would be pretty useless me trying but I decided to experiment with my hair to see if I could test them out anyway.
First up was the Curling Mousse (currently £3.00 in Superdrug), which is a light to medium heavy foam that adds bounce and definition to your curls. After washing my hair, I applied a small amount (about the size of a easy peel orange – ha) into my hand. I then rubbed it between my hands and dispersed it evenly through damp hair.
After doing a bit of rigorous combing through with my fingers, I then plaited my hair in two and let to dry naturally, keeping them in overnight. The results in the morning were certainly less frizz than what I usually expect.
What I also noticed was that there was no feeling of mousse in the hair which was a big positive for me. The ones I’ve used in the past, perhaps I’ve used too much before, have left the hair feeling stiff. This is something I hated so it’s great to not have that issue.
The Anti-Frizz Styling Spray was up next at £3.00 from Superdrug, offering up to a mammoth 96 hours of frizz-free hair. This one was certainly my favourite out of the three and I’ve been using it pretty much after every time I’ve washed my hair. The spray is light and fragranced and doesn’t feel tacky in the hair whatsoever. Once my hair was dry, there was indeed no frizz and my hair felt a lot sleeker than normal.
Does it offer up to 96 hours of frizz-free hair? I would say it gave me a couple of days give or take until the frizz came back but by then I was washing my hair again and applying the styling spray.
And lastly came the lightweight Styling Oil. This 50ml bottle contains a light oil that offers the same amount of hours for frizz-free hair and also keeps the hair smooth and sleek. It also nourishes the hair follicles from root to tip, giving hair it’s much needed moisture. I was pretty impressed with the oil because it was very light and didn’t drag down my hair or make it look greasy once applied. I’ve not tried it with dry hair as with past experiences, this never went well.
I think it’s great that all of these products are currently marked down at £3.00 because it gives newbies a chance to try out the brand without breaking the bank.
Overall, as a novice user of Schwarzkopf, I’m already impressed and certainly sold on both the styling spray and oil. I’m going to do a bit of digging and see if I can find a range in the brand that’s much more suited to my hair type but for anyone with un-tamed curls, this is definitely worth a go.
What do you think of the Schwarzkopf range? Let me know in the comments below.
