I bought this because I have been bleaching and changing the colour of my hair since I was 11 years old and I straighten it several time's a day, there isn't a day that goes by that I fail to straighten it, so as you can imagine my hair is pretty damaged and brittle, it breaks easy and takes a lot to make it soft, I have tried so many hot shampoo treatments, cleansers and more on my hair but nothing really works, I've used to many tigi products before and a top salon in grimsby recommended it to me when I went and got my hair trimmed, so I had two reasons to try this. You can buy Tigi products from TKMaxx, amazon, Tigi website or from any hair salon, I bought this from the salon for £16 for a 100ml bottle.
This has some very luxurious ingredients in this including, crushed pearls and diamond dust. The crushed pearl encourages new hair to grow and to strengthen your hair's roots. The diamond dust gives your hair the glimmering shine, this also has cashmere in it and this is to make you hair silky smooth. This is also packed with antioxidant's to re hydrate, it also has pineapple and coconut in to add extra hydration.
To use this you apply a small amount on to dry hair to either problem areas or to the whole head or hair, you only need a small amount of this, first apply and the roots and comb down your hair to make the most of this, the consistency is rather thick so you might notice that this does go quite quickly. You wear this to bed, I always put a shower cap on with this, one that fits quite tightly so it doesn't come off in the night, the first time you do this it does feel really icky. In the morning, or when you are ready you simply wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner like normal and then dry and look at the result, Tigi recommend using this once a month or when you hair feels like it needs it.
The smell of this is of mainly Pineapple, I think the smell of this is overpowering the Jasmine petals but I wasn't worried by this, however the Pineapple does provide a sickly sweet smell but was lovely to smell as I drifted off to sleep. The first time I used this, I was amazed at the shine, it was lovely to have a natural shine back in my hair, it certainly felt a lot softer, and I also used a heat protecting spray before straightening to help it a little better, However my hair was still breaking, I am still on my first bottle and I have been using this for 4 months now and my hair is slowly improving but I have to use more than once a month
Tigi is a brand that was initially created by Tony & Guy for their hairdressers to use on their clients. The products were so well received that they were eventually released onto the market for the consumer to buy. They create colourful and fragrant products to solve just about every hair dilemma and that put an end to bad hair days. One of their more recent lines of products is the S Factor range and one product that is part of this collection is the Tigi S Factor Wonderful Tonight Overnight Treatment.
What does the product do?
The product is an intensive overnight treatment that helps to restore dry and damaged hair back to its former glory. Tigi claims that Wonderful Tonight is three times stronger than a conditioner and that it will strengthen your hair and leave it feeling soft and looking shiny. It also promises to reverse and repair any damage that has been caused to the hair by colouring and styling using heated appliances. My favourite thing about this product, and the main reason that I bought it, is that it promises to do all this using diamonds, pearls, champagne and cashmere. What girl wouldn't be won over by that!?
How does it work?
The treatment contains a Luxury Complex which is made up of many of a girl's best friends including Diamond dust, Crushed Pearls, Fizzy Champagne and Silky Cashmere. The crushed pearl within the product mimics the actions of protein and helps to strengthen the hair which prevents breakages and encourages healthy hair growth. The Diamond dust gives the hair a gorgeous glossy shine, as does the Cashmere while it also leaves the hair smooth and tamed so there should be a reduction in frizzy hair and fly away strands.
Champagne gives the hair a deep hydration which allows it to retain its elasticity and as it is an antioxidant, the liquid also helps to remove any dulling free radicals from the strands. Also included is Keravis which is a strengthening complex created using vegetable extracts and silicone which conditions the hair and reduces the formation of split ends and prevents the strands becoming brittle and snapping. Pineapple makes the hair extra clean, while Coconut flakes nourish and hydrate each strand and both of these ingredients are joined by Soy Milk and Jasmine Petals to make this a treat for both your hair and the senses.
How do you use the product?
As you can tell from the name of this product, it is a treatment that is to be applied to the hair just before you go to bed. You dispense a small amount of the product into your hair and smooth it onto your dry hair. It can be used as a targeted treatment on the ends or smoothed over all your locks if they are badly in need of some hydration and care. After massaging the product into your hair, you can leave it alone to work its magic.
I tend to wrap my hair in a towel because this prevents any of the treatment from getting on my face or pillow. When you wake up in the morning, you shampoo and condition your hair as normal and then admire your shiny new hair in the mirror. The treatment is not for daily use and TIGI recommend using the product twice monthly, although I tend to use it whenever my hair starts to look in bad condition.
Packaging and Price
The product comes in an expensive looking white bottle which is fairly plain in its design, which follows the usual pattern of the S Factor packaging. When you remove the silver lid, you will see a silver pump dispenser which releases the liquid when you push down on the top. The bottle has some writing on it but no bright colours or images.
I bought my treatment from Amazon and it costs me around £15. For that money, I got 100ml which is a fairly small amount especially if you intend to use it all over so it is an expensive product. The treatment is available from most good hair salons and it also available on many online websites but I haven't found it yet for much cheaper than £15
The packaging of this product is quite convenient as it only releases a tiny amount of treatment each time you push down on the dispenser. This allows you to easily control the amount that you are using and it also prevents you from squirting out too much and then some going to waste. The only downfall of the packaging is that I feel like there will a fair amount of product left in the bottle which I won't be able to access once it is coming to the end of its life which will be a waste.
When you dispense the product, you will see that it comes out as a rich white cream with quite a thick consistency. It comes with a delicious smell just like all Tigi products do but this one is a little more subtle than I am used to. It was still gorgeous and sweet which I assume is caused by the Jasmine Petals and Pineapple but because it is faint it shouldn't bother anyone enough to keep them awake at night.
I use this product much more regularly than the recommended twice monthly on the ends of my hair because they are in very bad condition at the moment. I colour and style my hair using heated appliances and it is well overdue a cut at the moment so it is like damage limitation. I use the treatment all over my hair once monthly so the bottle is not very long lasting in my experience but those whose hair is not in such a dire condition as mine will find the bottle lasting much longer.
When the product is on the hair, it doesn't feel overly heavy or make me feel greasy or unclean. The product mostly sinks into the hair but as I have lovely silk pillow, I put my hair in a towel just in case it stains but you don't have to do this. My hairdresser has suggested to me that if I only use a tiny amount of this product, then it will also double up as a leave in conditioner. Despite my hair being very dry and damaged, it still gets greasy very quickly so I haven't tried using it in this way yet.
The next morning, the product is washed out really easily by using your normal shampoo and conditioner. The benefits of the product are noticeable as soon as your hair is dry. My hair felt much, much softer instead of that usual roughness that I sometimes feel and I think it's because the treatment must have smoothed out the strands of my hair.
It also looks in a better condition and feels healthier. The ends don't look as dry and it is less frizzy and flyaway over all. I can control it better and it doesn't get tangled so easily and as a result I have seen fewer breakages and split ends. It feels much stronger and less hair comes out when I brush it so it has made a big difference to the condition of my hair. I'm not so sure about a diamond shine but it definitely looks glossier when I use the product all over my hair, instead of just at the ends.
All in all, this is a great intensive treatment for dry and damaged hair that gets to work as you sleep. It left my hair in a better condition and with fewer split ends, less frizziness and it is much more manageable. The bottle is small and expensive so for those who need to use an all over treatment regularly, you may want to consider something different. As a targeted treatment for dryness however, it is fantastic and it will make a noticeable difference to your hair.
Still with the Tigi range which I am using these days to keep my locks in tip top condition, one of my favourite products is Tigi S-factor 'Wonderful Tonight' which is an overnight treatment for those of us who have dry, damaged or depleted hair and my hairdresser particularly recommends it to someone like me who has a love for GHD's which can leave your hair feeling quite dry, especially at the ends and feeling like straw.
Tigi sell products for every hair type you can think of. So, whether you've got long hair, short hair, wavy hair, straight hair, frizzy hair, or curly hair then there will be something for you. Likewise Tigi also have a hair care range aimed specifically at men. The hair care range from Tigi which spans from pre-wash treatments, shampoos, conditioners, masques, heat protectors, after wash treatments and styling products, Tigi also have a make-up range too.
The description of this product is as follows "Wonderful Tonight Overnight Treatment is for damaged, dry and depleted hair in need of intense repair. An intense reparative treatment for damaged, dry & depleted hair. S-Factor Wonderful Tonight improves hair's resistance to breakage and is proven to triple the strength of damaged hair". So within a few sentences you know exactly what this product is for and it what it proposes to do for your hair.
Like the other products within the S-factor range the bottle isn't one of the more usual bright eye catching coloured bottles and tubes but it is sold in a pure bright white bottle/tube with a huge silver colour lid which is really shiney and in fitting with the design of the bottle, unlike the flat iron spray which hosted a rather bizarre oval shape lid. The other things to note about the design of this bottle is that again it is a pure bright white coloured bottle and it has a big silver S right in the middle of it to promote the particular S-factor range within which it comes from along with the words 'Wonderful Tonight'. The bottle contains 100ml of this said product and for that 100ml you can expect to be pay anything from £10.50 right up to £19.95 depending on where you purchase the product from. As I bought mine from my hairdressing salon I paid £11.50.
As for product is a conditioning treatment which is designed to go onto your hair over night you do need to ensure you have clean hair in order for it to work properly and then ensuring that your hair is dry, you need to ensure that you have enough to work right through where your hair is dry, then concentrating mainly on where you hair is dry, so in my case it is the ends of my hair and some of the roots, you use the lotion, which is similar to a serum in texture.
Once it is applied, there is no need to wash it out because it needs to be left in over night. Then the following morning to remove the product from your hair, all you need to do is wash and condition your hair as you would normally and then once your hair is dry and styled the way you would usually style it, you should notice a slight difference in how your hair feels, the one thing I noticed was that the front of my hair where I use the straighteners a lot to keep the flyaway hairs at bay instead of making me look wind swept all the time, and these hairs actually stayed in place after using my GHD's so I didn't have to use any extra products or spend longer straightening them, instead once through with the straighteners and that was all that was needed.
A few months on and I am still using this product twice a week, though I begun using it once a week for a month, as my hairdresser recommended, I have found that the ends of my hair are not dry at all and there is significantly less split ends than I would expect to find this close to my next hair appointment.
So what makes this treatment work? Tigi use 4 main ingredients within this product which they claim makes it so wonderful and it starts with Kervais which Tigi say is proven to triple the strength of damaged hair. Next there is Diamond Dust and crushed pearl and together they work to improve and provide a natural shine to your hair. Champagne extract follows on and acts as a moisturising agent to your hair which helps to lock in moisture and prevent your hair from drying out and at the same time it acts an antioxidant to protect your hair from things like pollution. Finally we have Cashmere extract and this as an ingredient is said to smooth and soften your hair to control the flyaway strands of hair and the frizzing which again leads to hair that sticks up and refuses to lay flat on your head. Adding them all together and you should begin to find your dry, straw like frizzing mane becomes soft and smooth and easier to manage.
The good thing about this product is that isn't time consuming, you literally apply to it your hair where you need some extra conditioning and treating and then until the following morning you don't have to do anything else at all. Washing the product from your hair is exceptionally easy to do and there are no traces left behind, your hair doesn't have a greasy feeling to it, which is something I dislike about using hair serums.
Whilst I except it is a slightly expensive product, you do only use it as and when you need too, it isn't a product you would use every day or every other day when you would wash and dry your hair, but because my hairdresser suggested I used it once a week for 6 weeks and then one every 2 weeks, which is what I have been doing, I have noticed a notable difference. So if you are looking for soft, smooth locks and a treatment for your dry straw like hair, then I can recommend giving this product a try. I have become a big fan of it and I will continue to keep some on my shelf.
