Today I am going to share one product which I have bought impulsively as I don’t have any choice. Read out further to know how that impulsive decision turned out.
Two years ago I had been to Bahrain to attend my brother’s wedding. I had just bought my first hair straightener from Philips & I was in search of good heat protectant spray. I wanted the newly launched Tresseme heat protectant spray or Sunsilk heat protectant spray but to my dismay it was not available in the local stores of my city Vadodara & I didn't had time to buy it online so I thought I will get it from Bahrain only. However I didn’t get any of them in Bahrain also so I had to settle down with this L’oreal Paris Studio Silk & Gloss Hot Straight Smoothing Spritz Spray.
Prices: 2.5 BD approx. for 200ml ( From Lulu mall)
I love the packaging of this L’oreal Paris Studio Silk & Gloss Hot Straight Smoothing Spritz Spray. The bottle is of neon pink color which gives a girly feel with white nozzle spray head. The packaging is travel friendly and the cover of the head fits properly not giving any chance of leakage. The color of the fluid is white & the formula feels sticky on hands. The fragrance of the fluid is citrusy which I don’t like anyway it will be there for only 5 minutes so not a problem.
I have used this L’oreal Paris Studio Silk & Gloss Hot Straight Smoothing Spritz Spray after air drying my hair instead of blow dry as I don’t want to damage my hair by using so much heat at the same time.
First I divided my hair in 8 sections (4 each side) & sprayed the heat protectant spray section by section & comb it to the length to distribute the same equally to the length & volume completely. Then I started straightening the hair section by section. It did give my hair a bit of shine after straightening which remains for one day only. It cannot protect the straightened hair from the sweat & water. On second day the hair becomes limp & lost its volume. I had to wash my hair on the third day to get back my hair to its normal volume. It protects my hair from the damage of the heat as it claims but it failed miserably on the note of shine & gloss part.
I have tried this product with my hair dryer also but I didn’t notice any shine after a blow dry, maybe I still have to learn the art of a perfect blow dry at home. However I will use it just because it protects my hair from the heat generated from these hairstyling tools. I use my Matrix serum reviewed in past for my hair to give some shine after a blow dry or hair straightening. So the combo of these two products work satisfactorily for me as of now.
- Protects hair from heat & prevent it to become dry after using heating tools
- Budget friendly
- Small amount can work on long hair
- Travel friendly packaging
- Longer shelf life of 36 months from manufacturing date
- Sticky formula
- It will not tame frizzy hair completely.
- It will not give shiny & glossy hair as per claims.
BFF Rating: 3/5
Final Verdict: I like this product in terms of the heat protection it gives to my hair but I will not repurchase the same. I will purchase Tresseme heat protectant spray next.
