I received lots of lovely TIGI products for Christmas and one of my favourites was the Catwalk Your Highless Weightless Shine Spray.
What does the product do?
The product is effectively a finishing product which gets rid of frizziness and gives the hair a gorgeous shine. It promises to smooth flyaway strands to leave your hair sleek and healthy looking. In addition to this, it gives the hair heat protection so that you can use heated styling appliances without damaging the hair. It contains Silk and Jasmine extract in order to condition the hair.
How do you use the product?
According to the instructions, the product is to be applied to the hair by spraying the bottle in the air blown from a hairdryer. This confuses and baffles me so I use it differently. I spray a little onto my damp hair so that I get some of the thermal protection benefits. Then after blow drying and straightening my hair, I spritz the product over my finished hair style.
Packaging and Price
The product is packaged within a can and it looks like a small tin of hair spray. It is purple and black like the whole of the Your Highness collection and it has a lid to prevent the product from going off when you don't want it to. It also has some white writing on the bottle which lets you know a little bit more about the product. The product will cost you around £10 and it can be bought from most good hair salons and also from a variety of online websites.
Application and Performance
The product is released like a fine mist which is continuous as long as you push down on the dispenser. The can is light and easy to hold so it's easy to apply the product. It does have a strong smell like most TIGI products and although it is lovely, smelling of blackberries and vanilla, it does have a slightly chemical aroma too. The formula is light just as promised and as long as you don't hold the can too close to the hair and you don't get to spray happy, then it won't make your hair look wet and greasy. Only a very small amount of the product is needed in order for you to get the desired results.
It does give the hair a glossy shine without tangling the hair or making it hard to brush. It doesn't weight the hair down making it look flat so I still have plenty of volume there. The product keeps the hair looking sleek and so does reduce the frizziness of my hair, as well as controlling flyaway ends. I can't really say whether the product protects my hair from the straighteners that I constantly use. It certainly doesn't do any harm to the hair. It does leave a nice aroma on the hair and the shine in long lasting. The product is easily removed when I wash my hair.
All in all, this is a lightweight product which gives the hair a beautiful shine leaving it looking sleek and healthy. If used properly, it shouldn't leave the hair tangled or looking greasy. I don't think this product works much better than shine sprays that cost half as much so although I will happily continue to use the product, I'd properly buy a cheaper version once it's all gone.
