Hello gorgeous people! Well, after I kinda slagged off the Schwarzkopf ‘Got2b’ Powder’ful in this review here, I was extremely surprised when the company who take care of the range sent me a lovely e-mail. As I had lost faith in the range after my bad experience, they ever-so-kindly asked me if I’d be interested in trying out some other products from the range to see if they’d fulfill my needs. Seems as though big, voluminous hair is what I’m trying to achieve, I welcomed the offer with open arms and here’s how I got on.
Here’s what I received:
Guardian Angel* // £4.05
Sexy Big Volume Mousse* // £4.05
Sexy Collagen Lift Effect Hairspray* // £4.05
Oil-licious Styling Oil* // £4.05
Like I’ve mentioned previously, I’m not a massive hair product user, so I can’t begin to describe how excited I was over receiving these products. The first product I tried was the Heat Defence Spray. Before using this I realised how much I’ve been neglecting my poor little head as despite the constant blow drying and occasional curling, I’ve never even used a heat protector before. Slap my hand, I know. I sprayed this all over my barnet after towel-drying and began to blow-dry. I didn’t notice a massive difference apart from the fact that it did take slightly less time to dry my hair, which is definitely a bonus! What I find incredible is that this protects your hair up to 220 degrees, which means I can protect it against my curling wand too. I suppose I’ll notice a bigger difference in the general quality of my hair after a couple more weeks. The next time I washed my hair I used the styling oil. This was probably the product I was excited about most as I’ve heard so much in the blogging community about oils and what a difference they can make to your hair. With one pump’s worth, I rubbed it into my fingers and then through the ends of my damp hair and what a difference it made. After drying, the ends of my hair were silky smooth, a massive difference from their usual knotty and difficult texture. This makes a very cheap alternative to the likes of Moroccan Oil! The only downside is that I have to wash my hands straight after I’ve applied it, the greasy and oily sensation is not pleasant. The last product I used was the hairspray and it’s probably my favourite. I first used this after I’d curled my hair; I flicked my head upside down and sprayed away. The first thing I noticed was the amazing smell, it’s not your usual get-it-in-your-mouth-feel-sick type of smell (although I don’t recommend putting it in your mouth, obviously) it reminds me of raspberries and is very fruity! I was really pleased that when I ran my fingers through my curls I wasn’t finding it too difficult, as other hairsprays have made my hair stiff as a board. Along with that, the product has amazing staying power and kept my curls at exactly the right drop the whole night. BIG THUMBS UP! Unfortunately, I’m not a mousse type of person so I can’t share my thoughts with you but if it’s anything like the other products, it’s a good’un! Schwarzkopf are now back in my good books. Overall Rating: 7/10
