As many famous hairdressers and stylists have clearly stated, there is no better accessory to finish your look than a great head of hair…I couldn’t agree more. So I went in search of some of the best products to help achieve this, with less of the fuss.
One of the biggest ‘hair hacks’ I have discovered over the years is product selection. Growing up, I would just grab what ever 2-in-1 was in the shower, air dry my hair and be on my way. Sadly we can’t have our 15yr old mane of hair for ever so we do need to be a little more selective with how we treat our locks.
I’m sure we’d all agree that our hair always looks better when we leave the salon. Yes they are far more skilled than most of us but there is definitely something to be said about the products they use and the results produced.
Enter: AMR Hair and Beauty, the leading supplier for Australia’s best spas and salons. The great news is that they have recently launched an online consumer store, offering us access to their extensive range of products.
For my trial, I selected a range of products from Fanola Nutri Care range. All of the below products are ideal for dry, frizzy and treated hair. After many years of colouring, my hair easily falls into this category.
Shampoo & Conditioner
The claim: Deep hydrating and nourishing action of its milk proteins & linseed oil leaves hair silky, soft, brillint and easy to comb.
Verdict: I am a big sceptic with packaging claims. I almost want to poke holes in products!! Unfortunately/ fortunately, my hair felt fabulous after washing and conditioning. Soft, smooth and no residue. The shampoo & conditioner pass the test!
Restructuring Cream for Split Ends
The Claim: This product helps to seal the cuticle with a filming, anti-frizz action that helps to repair and prevent split ends.
The verdict: It literally does what it says and smooths frizzy ends.
Leave-in Restructuring Spray Mask
The Claim: A 10 action leave-in spray that is great for all hair types.
The verdict: (Insert an operatic overture) This is the hero product!! I literally don’t go anywhere with out this bottle of magic! How just a few sprays can transform your hair, I will never know! But if you have easily tangled hair that is in need of a little TLC, this is your product.
The device: Tamara Rose Foreverose Hair Dryer. I selected this dryer for many reasons, but mostly to test a dryer that sits well and truely in the affordable end of the scale.
My first thought is how light the dryer feels, but expected for the price. My second thought is how pretty the dryer looks! Who doesn’t love a rose gold anything, really?
The Verdict: Great value for money! The dryer produces an excellent level of heat, maybe a little high at the top end, combined with a powerful blowing ability.
