“ Brand: Andrew Collinge / Gender: Unisex / What it does: Protects „
This one of the few products I would truly RAVE about. I find hair goes through good days and bad days, and this can depend on your diet, the weather or your will to do anything with it! Products can rarely make a radical different, but after using this 1 minute wonder, I actually saw a result.
I use heat to curl my hair, and somehow the curls were more defined and less prone to frizz throughout the day. I have very dry hair and found it helped to pin curls throughout the night while asleep once I had styled my hair. When I first started doing this hairstyle, I saw a review for this product and bought it on offer, using it instead of conditioner and leaving it on while I used my shower gel. Once it ran out, the style become less successful and I asked myself why it had been so great in the start. It was because I was using this product.
The smell is great and it leaves your hair really nourished. Normal conditioners just seem to detangle in the shower and leave it smooth, but this really feels different. I have repurchased this product again and again because there are no better alternatives, it's great! And it costs no more than any conditioner out there, bargain!
This is one of a range of products from Andrew Collinge salon solutions, which is designed to help replenish and repair the hairs damaged structure. A one minute wonder deep conditioning treatment, that is said to restructure and re-hydrate for instant manageability and shine especially designed for dry/damaged hair.
It says its cleverly formulated to lock in moisture it will leave hair soft and supple and easy to style. See and feel the difference after every application. I have to agree with this statement, my hair is colour treated and really long, so Ive tried all kinds of different products, but this is the one that I feel gives the best results for my hair type, and so Ive stuck with it for many years now (on and off) and make sure its always in my bathroom.
It contains a huge list of ingredients, far too many to list and bore you with, but some of them are: water, cetearyl alcohol, glycerin and parfum (fragrance). It also contains a UV filter and multiconditioning complex, which helps to protect your hair from heat styling.
Directions for use:
As usual you are told to prepare your hair with a shampoo from the same range (which I never do, I generally use Pantene), towel dry and apply evenly to hair and massage from root to tip, I dont actually apply any product directly to the root as I find it can look a bit oily when dry, and needs washing sooner than usual, and more washing the hair means more of the hairs natural oils are being stripped away, so I apply the majority to the mid lengths and ends and comb through with my fingers. I usually use it once every one to two weeks, its called 1 minute wonder, but I usually leave it on for 5 minutes - or more if needed to get the best results. And as usual avoid contact with the eyes, but if contact occurs rinse with warm water.
Its not a very big tube, it holds 25 ml, but if youre only using it every week or more then it lasts for ages. You dont need to use a lot, about a walnut size is enough for me, my hair is long but not very thick, so thicker hair would probably need a bit more. And because I only use it once every week or two, I find its great value for money, costing around £4.49 for a 25 ml tube.
It looks pretty good too, in a cool pale metallic lilac colour with silver, purple and black writing. Its opened at the bottom by flipping up the clear cap, and is then squeezed to get the product out.
Im always really pleased with the look and feel of my hair when Ive used this conditioning treatment, and it smells great too - not fruity, just a nice perfume smell, and gives a nice glossy smooth feel which is really easy to manage.
My hair is generally quite weak when wet through all the colour treatment it was very dark brown last month (for about 3 weeks, I got bored!) and now its back very pale blonde, so after my hair taking such a beating I was glad to have this product at hand! And it worked, my hair is back feeling as good as it did before and much stronger after using this deep conditioning treatment a few times.
So overall I would give this product 9.5 out of ten and I would definitely recommend it to anyone with dry or damaged hair, or for normal hair to make it look and feel extra special.
Thanks for reading.
