“ Brand: Goldwell „
**** Introduction ****
On my last visit to the hairdressers i asked my stylist to recommend a product that will tame and help straighten my hair, she recommended this goldwell trendline straightening balm.
**** The Product ****
This comes in a 150ml bottle with a pump action application nozzle, only one small pump of product is enough to give my whole head enough product to do the job.
This is used to help tame and smooth difficult hair types, it is applied to wet towel dried hair and then styled as usual. apply a small amount of the product to the palms of your hands and massage into your hairs mid lengths and ends.
**** The Results ****
At first this can feel very sticky on my hair but once it has penetrated my hair and it has been styled it is fine.
This leaves my hair silky smooth with a brilliant shine and it also helps me straighten it to perfection which is something I have never been able to do without a hairdresser before.
**** Price ****
This goldwell product can be bought form many hair salons and also sally stores, and will cost you roughly 8.95 but the prices do vary as you do have to pay vat in certain places.
**** My Views ****
I am very happy with this product it does exactly want it says on the bottle, may hair is now managable and easy to straighten which has made my visits to the hairdressers less frequant therefore saving me money in the long run.
If you have wild unruly hair then this is the product for you, as it really helps and helps fight against humidity so I can now leave the house on wet rainy days.
When I visited my hairdresser for last Christmas I was looking a right state, mainly due to my stinking hangover but also due to the fact that my hair resembled a back combed bush in all honesty. Most of the time I straighten my hair using my trusted GHDs but around Christmas time I was having dreadful problems during nights out as my hair kept going frizzy
that dreaded word that all girls hate! I desperately asked the advice of my hairdresser who suggested a product made my Goldwell called from their Trendline range which is quite simply called Straightener.
The product comes in a dark blue plastic bottle with a grey dispenser head that can be pushed down on for easily dispensing the product (but annoyingly you often forget to turn the head to lock it when you pack it in your case!). The bottle is quite simply decorated with the product name and brand symbol on the front while the back shows the instructions, ingredients and the fact the bottle contains 250ml. The product itself is a clear gel in colour which is moderately thin in consistency, similar to that of shower gel or bubble bath. It smells quite similar to the inside of my hairdressers if Im honest, quite an expensive smell almost, with a slight hint of nail varnish and hair spray also!
The product promises to relax waves and curls so as to create straight and sleek hair until the next shampoo, if that wasnt good enough it also offers superb shine and it will protect hair during the drying process ideal if you use straighteners regularly. The instructions specify that you dispense an adequate amount in the palm of your hand and work through the towel dried hair in sections. I find that two squirts of the pump is sufficient for my hair but of course it will depend on the length and thickness of your hair. Merely distribute it with your hands through your hair and then comb through to ensure an even spread of the gel. After that merely blow dry and straighten as you normally would.
So what were the results like? Well my hair is naturally quite curly and extremely frizzy if I dont apply any serum to it, which I never do when using this product. After blow drying my hair my heart did begin to sink as the frizz was still evident, as big as ever and just as ugly. However as I started straightening my hair it did feel a lot softer than normal and upon finishing it also appeared to be a lot flatter and sleeker looking that it usually did. To put it to the true test I went out the following night after applying a pea sized drop of the product to my hair (as suggested by the hairdresser, to prevent moisture from getting to it) and came home practically in the same condition (well my hair was, I wasnt)! I was amazed to find that upon waking up the next morning and brushing it my hair looked just as it had done before going out the previous night shiny, sleek, smooth and without a hint of frizz about it.
Id recommend this product to anyone who suffers from curly, frizzy or wavy hair even if its just to be used in preparation for a night out to prevent frizz rather than as an actual straightening product. Ive had my bottle for about 6 months now and about a quarter full but that is with about 2 applications every week so it does last a while. Its currently only available at professional hair salons and on the internet but if you are interested in buying it then heres the best places and prices
So if you want to avoid the frizz this summer, you know what to do! Thanks for reading!
