WHAT IS IT?
Hair conditioner by Tigi, it is part of a range that has been developed for men to use and has got a more masculine fragrance and will work better on shorter hair styles usually worn by men.
HOW DO YOU USE IT?
I am writing this review as a woman but I have tried this conditioner on my own hair before I started to offer it as part of my work as a beautician. I bought it when I had to work on the men of a wedding party because I was already doing the make up of the ladies in the party and knew that I would need to buy some special products for the men of the group instead of trying to make do with my more feminine collection of skin and hair care products.
To use this conditioner you apply it to hair that has been fresh washed and rinsed and then you can rinse it straight off as soon as you have massaged it through the hair. When you use ladies conditioner you should keep it away from the roots of the hair but this one for men is designed to refresh the scalp and it does not cause the hair to be greasy so I always massage it into the scalp when I am washing my clients hair.
WHAT I THINK
I have never known before what the difference is between ladies and mens hair products but ever since I have been using this from Tigi I can see that there is a difference. Most men have hair that is more coarse and I like that when I use this conditioner and a Tigi shampoo that I can easily add texture and body to my clients hair. It does not weigh down the shorter hair of men because the conditioner is quite light and it does not leave any residue at all in the hair. It rinses out fully very quick.
I like the peppermint smell and think that makes it smell and seem more like a male hair product. My client likes it also and he has started to order this conditioner for himself because he is the sort of man who likes to care for his appearance but does not want to have too many products to do this. The smell does not last for very long on the hair but that is ok because men do not care for this effect like women do.
I like rinsing this conditioner from my clients hair because it makes his hair feel very silken but not in a feminine way. When it has been rinsed his hair looks always like it is going to be hard to style but this is not true and when I start to tousle and style it his hair goes right where I want it to. His hair is too short to knot up while I am washing it but when I used the conditioner on my own hair to try it I did not think it was very good at removing knots, if you are a man with long hair then you could have the same problem so I think it would be better suitable for short hair.
A 200ml tube of Bed Head For Men Clean Up conditioner costs about £10 but even though that is expensive I think it is value because you only have to use a very small amount so even if you use it every day a tube will last for quite a long time. I buy mine from a trade supplier and my client buys his from www.lookfantastic.com
