Disappointing Haircare

I received these products over 2 weeks ago from a Twitter giveaway I won with MySalonLooks which was very generous of them and when they were delivered, I couldn't wait to try them out. Unfortunately when I did try them out, I can honestly say I was bitterly disappointed. First off is the Kerastase Volumifique Shampoo and Conditioner, these are the two I've most disappointed with. The shampoo really lathers up in the hair which I find lovely for cleaning due to applying copious amounts of the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray but in terms of volume? Nada, nil, zilch when it comes to volume. If anything, it makes my hair more flat. The conditioner is the same, it makes hair silky smooth but no volume. Considering how much Kerastase retail their products for, I have yet to find a product that I like and works from them. Next up from Kerastase is a miniature Spray À Porter and again, this really didn't wow me. The directions state to use on towel dried/dry hair and so I did, this just clumped my hair, made it stick together like hairspray typically would and didn't do anything to give those promised beachy, textured waves.
MySalonLooks also included some L'oreal goodies and again, I didn't get on with these either. The first item I picked out of the box and was most intrigued by was the Steampod Replenishing Smoothing Cream, this is supposed to be used in conjunction with their Steampod hair tools which I don't have so I really don't understand why this was included. I've used this as a finishing cream after straightening my hair but it really doesn't do anything. Like I said, this obviously needs to be used with L'oreal's hair tools and seeing as I don't have them. This didn't impress me at all. And finally we have the L'Oreal Tecni Art Hot Style Constructor, this is about the only product from the bunch that I did like, this adds hold as well as adding shine and texture to the hair. My mum is currently using this and for the others, I'm using the shampoo and conditioner but for the Steampod and Kerastase spray, they're neglected in my stash. Give me Oribe anyday.


  1. I like Kerastase for nourishing hair but they would have to completely reformulate their products in order to give volume..which they obviously haven't done very successfully :( Thanks for sharing, won't waste my money on these xx

  2. Oh no, this is so disappointing! Sorry to hear you didn't get on with the products, but at least you didn't part all that money for them I guess x

  4. Such a shame you weren't impressed with most of these products :( I've used a Keratase milk before and it felt amazing in my hair but a 30ml tube was about £30, it's ridiculous. xx
