I have very frizzy and unruly hair. I envy the people who can 'wash and go' as my morning routine consists of nearly an hour of blow drying and straightening, just to get my hair in some sort of order. I love TIGI products and so I nearly burst with excitement when I laid eyes on the Bedhead Candy Fixations Glaze Haze.
What does the product do?
The main feature of this product that caught my eye was the fact that it promised to speed up the drying time of my hair. I had never seen a product offer this promise before so I was eager to see if it was true. The product also claimed to give my hair a gorgeous shine by smoothing the cuticles of my hair and shininess is one of my main goals when styling my hair. Not only this, but it also claims to fight humidity which is another plus when it comes to my humongous hair.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be applied to wet hair that has just been shampooed and conditioned. You need to apply a few pumps of the product into your hands and then smooth it through the hair, starting at the middle and continuing to the ends. You don't need to use the product on the roots. You can also use it on dry hair, although you need to use considerably less of the product and obviously using it in this way won't have an effect on the drying time of your hair!
Packaging and Price
The product comes contained within a bottle which is decorated with the standard Candy Fixation pattern. It has green and white spirals which start in the centre of the bottle and move out. The bottle is made from white plastic and it has the title written on it in black letters. The bottle works using a pump mechanism and you push down the top to release the product. The top of the bottle is protected by a clear plastic lid. The product will cost you around £8 per bottle and it can be bought from most good hair dressers and a variety of online websites.
Aroma and Application
The product has a completely delicious aroma which makes this product smell good enough to eat. It smells like fizzy sweets mixed with cupcakes and it is right up my street and as I like my hair to smell sweet and delicious. The consistency of the product is just what I expected it to be and it is a clear oil like serum.
I have fairly long hair that goes past my shoulders and I use about four pumps of this product in order to get a good coverage on my wet hair. If I am applying it to my dry hair, I would use no more than two because it ends up looking greasy on my hair. The serum is easy to apply to the hair and the only difficulty would be that your hands are left slightly greasy afterwards but it's nothing that can't be sorted out by using a hand wash!
The positives of this product is that it definitely gives my hair a gorgeous and healthy shine which I assume has been caused by the smoothing of the hair cuticles. I think the product is quite conditioned and it seals moisture into the hair which does seem to keep my frizz at bay for a while as long as it's dry out. I wouldn't expect any product to conquer my hair when it's damp outside. It makes my hair smell delicious, long after the product has been applied and my hair feel really soft and smooth. If my hair does become frizzy during the day then a tiny bit of this product being smoothed over the ends does help to tame it again. I would say the only negative of this product would be that it doesn't seem to cut down the drying time of my hair which is the main reason I bought the product. I didn't actually believe that it would be able to do this but it was still a disappointment.
All in all, this is a deliciously sweet serum for the hair which coats it with a lovely shine and helps to reduce frizziness. It makes the hair feel soft and look healthy and can be used on wet or dry hair. The only drawback with this is that I don't think it speeds up the drying time of my hair but if you want tamer and shinier hair then this is worth purchasing.
