I had the opportunity to test drive BLONDME’s Keratin Restore Blonde Shampoo, Keratin Restore Blonde Conditioner, and the Shine Enhancing Spray Conditioner, all at a perfect time as my hair had been high-lighted quite a few levels lighter than my natural shade. A creamy shampoo with a soft, salon-treatment scent, it provided a great cleanse and protected my hair, while the conditioner was deeply nourishing. Considering it was not a mask or a deep conditioner, the Keratin Restore softened my hair and made it feel amazing and shiny! The Shine Enhancing Spray, when settled, appears clear, but give it a good shake and its golden pigments come to life, leaving your hair with an instant gorgeous shiny finish with a delicious scent!

The new BC Fibre Force gives severely stressed and damaged hair a second chance. After usage of four to ten weeks, hair is regenerated and restored to its optimum level of strength.

After reading the press release for the new OSiS+ products Blow & Go, I knew I had to take them for a spin. I will try anything to reduce blowdry time of my long hair!! Especially this time of year when I often wash my hair daily (I know, so bad for your hair).

There are two blow-dry sprays for the perfect blow-dry: OSiS+ Blow & Go THICK provides hair with great volume and a glamorous shine, while OSiS+ Blow & Go SMOOTH provides sleek and luxurious smoothness.

OSIS

So how did they fare?

Both products come in a clear 200 ml spray bottle, misting a perfect, even spray. This may not sound like an important factor, but I always test sprays before buying a hair product – I’ve purchased too many with weak or faulty spray tops.

OSiS+ Blow & Go is easy to use: spray onto damp hair, blowdry and style as required. Not a lot of product is needed. The only negative for me at this stage was that the product has a bit of an alcohol/hair spray scent to it when you first apply it; however, the scent does dissipate once you blowdry, leaving behind a very faint hair product scent.

OSiS+ Blow & Go THICK makes your hair feel thicker, denser as you blowdry, and leaves behind visible volume. Who doesn’t love more volume! It also smoothes your hair with a touch of hold, eliminating the need for finishing products.

OSiS+ Blow & Go SMOOTH is very similar to THICK, minus the volume. Once you have blowdried, it feels more as though you quickly ran a hair straightener through your mane; it leaves behind a smooth, shiny, sleek finish, and helps eliminate frizz.

Overall verdict? Both OSiS+ Blow & Go sprays seemed to help reduce dry time a little, and I loved the finished feeling of my hair. I did not think that they would be very different, but as mentioned, they do provide a slight variation in finish. I personally prefer the volume THICK provides, but have loved how SMOOTH helped provide some control on high-humidity days.

OSiS+ Blow & Go is now available in Schwarzkopf Professional partner salons across Canada, for $21.00 Cdn/bottle. For further information please visit www.schwarzkopf-professional.com or www.press.henkel.com or visit the Facebook fan page!

Journey to Hair Oasis and Get the Best of Both Worlds with NEW göt2b Oil-licious Shampoo & Conditioner!

Coming off the success of the styling oil, göt2b recently introduced NEW Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo and Golden Shimmer Conditioner – a deliciously-scented duo to complement all hair types. Containing Argan Oil, Marula Oil and White Grape Seed Oil, the Smooth Shampoo and Golden Shimmer Conditioner provides lightweight manageability and touchable silkiness without the greasy feel sometimes associated with rich hair products.

got2b_Oil-licious S&C

As I like to do with beauty products whenever possible in order to provide an accurate review, I have been using the Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo and Golden Shimmer Conditioner for a few weeks on my wavy, colour-treated hair, and I am so obsessed that today I picked up a ton of backup!!

The Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo is slightly musky, sweetly scented in a clear, golden formula of smoothing oils. I have to warn you, a small amount of product goes quite a long way, cleansing without sudsing up to a huge lather… The first time I tried it, I thought I needed more shampoo, but it is a great product, cleansing well, allowing me to go a full 3 days between shampoos (which I do not do often!). That is saying a lot considering this a moisturizing shampoo. My hair felt not only cleansed, but protected and soft after use. And the continuous use is helping keep my hair shiny, soft and protected from all of the heat-straightening and curling I put my hair through.

Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo offers:

  • Micro-emulsion technology providing sumptuous shine and touchable smoothness.
  • Improvement of shine more than 100% versus untreated hair!

The Golden Shimmer Conditioner actually contains tiny traces of golden shimmer, which at first made me nervous… was it going to sparkle in my hair? Was it a special-occasion product? Rest assured that the shimmer simply serves to add additional shine to your hair once you rinse it out – no glitter here! It provides a light condition to protect your hair without weighing it down. And the slightly musky scent is delicious!!!

Oil-licious Golden Shimmer Conditioner delivers:

  • Effective detangling while nourishing hair with indulgent care of precious oils.
  • Restoration of damaged hair even before blow-drying!
  • Infused with Mica to impart a delightful golden shimmer.

The Oil-licious line was such a hit in my home that once again, I was finding myself “borrowing” the products from hubby’s shower. The unisex scent is delicious on my hair, and equally yummy when hubby uses it. Today I finally picked up backup so we each could have our own bottles! I’ve also purchased the famous Oil-licious Styling Oil and will hopefully be able to bring you a review soon!

göt2b NEW Oil-licious Opulent Smooth Shampoo and Golden Shimmer Conditioner retail for $7.99 each and are available at mass retail locations across Canada including Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart, PharmaPlus, Loblaws, Jean Coutu and Target Canada.
