I noticed the Tigi 'Some Like It Hot' shampoo on one of my trips to the local chemists and took a closer look when I noticed it was a Tigi product. I have used a number of their products in the past, and as I can spend a lot of time in the Sun I thought I would find it useful on hot days. Reading the packaging I found that it is designed to protect hair from the harmful rays. Containing a modest level of UV protection this reduces the damage that the Sun gives, exposure to the Sun can damage and dry out hair.
Tigi Some Like It Hot shampoo contains avocado. The shampoo smells great and the avocado gives the shampoo an explosion vitamins and minerals to nourish hair. There are a number of important ingredients which are all beneficial to your hair under exposure to the Sun. I think this is a great selling point of this product in the Summer months.
The shampoo is simple to apply, I use a small amount and as I have short hair the bottle can often last many months. As I used the shampoo last Summer I no longer use it as it is quite expensive at around £10 for a 200ml bottle, I don't use it during the Winter months though due to less need for UV protection. The shampoo is quite thick, which isn't really to the consistency of my preference. I prefer a more runny shampoo, but this isn't really worth marking down for. The packaging is worth noting though, as it gives the right impression about the product. It immediately screams Summer at me and this is what drew me in initially. The shampoo left my hair looking and feeling great, and the benefit of not only protecting my hair from the Sun but also nourishing it is a bonus. The price could be an issue for many, but in the Summer it really is a good product to have when out in the Sun.
Whenever I go out into the sunshine, I am very careful about applying sun cream. I usually do it so often that it is not unusual for me to go through a whole bottle in two days which makes me the butt of my friend's jokes.
Despite the fact that my frizzy hair becomes ever larger and enters into Marge Simpson territory in the heat, it had never occurred to me that I should be protecting my hair from the sun as well as my skin.
After explaining this problem to my hairdresser, she recommended that I try, Some Like It Hot by Tigi. I already owned many of the products in the Bedhead collection and love them all so I didn't think twice about buying it.
The product is designed to protect the hair from both the heat and humidity. Using a gorgeous cocktail of natural ingredients, the shampoo forms a barrier of protection around each strand so that it can't be damaged by the elements. It promises to control frizziness and smoothes each strand of hair while giving it a healthy sunshine and offering it UV protection too. I couldn't argue with that!
How does it work?
The shampoo contains a lightweight level of UV protection which means that it is protected from the suns harmful rays that can dry out and damage the hair.
Avocado is present because it is able to penetrate the hair and nourish it with a whole host of vitamins and minerals. It is also a natural sunscreen so it also protects the hair from harmful UV rays.
Grapes are included because they are fantastic antioxidants which means that can remove the free radicals caused by sun damage from the hair and leave it in a better and healthier conditioner. It also stimulates the scalp so healthy new hair will form.
The Aloe Vera within the shampoo soothes and calms the scalp and it helps to smooth the cuticles of the hair. It helps to prevent the hair from becoming frizzy and it stimulates the growth of healthy new strands.
And finally Cucumber is added to the mixture because it contains Silica which promotes healthy hair growth. It is also highly moisturising and nourishes and so it prevents the hair from drying out and becoming frizzy while cooling the scalp.
How do you use the product?
The product is to be used in the same way as a normal shampoo. I apply it to my damp hair and massage it into my hair and scalp. You won't need to use much as the consistency is very thick so allow some time for it to work properly into the hair. After a few minutes, I rinse the product out thoroughly and then follow it with a good conditioner. If you find that you really like this shampoo, then a conditioner and hair serem is also available in the collection.
Price and Packaging
The shampoo comes enclosed with a beautiful sunshine yellow tube style bottle with writing on the front. It has a flip top lid in order to access the product and it can also stand on its lid which means that your bathroom looks tidier. A larger bottle is available with a pumping action to release the shampoo.
The product will cost you around £10 for the 200ml bottle but as it is available on so many websites then if you shop around, you'll find it for much cheaper. It can also be bought from most good hairdressers who sometimes run offers on the Bedhead collections.
It's a given that when you purchase a Bedhead product, it's going to smell good enough to eat. And this one doesn't let the side down. The fragrance is incredibly fresh, almost tropical and with a yummy citrus blast lingering there too. The aroma makes washing your hair a lovely experience and the fragrance will stay on your hair for ages after using the product.
The shampoo is free from sulphate which means that this is gentler on the hair and scalp and you won't experience any of the irritation or dryness that can occur when the substance is present.
I love the lovely thick consistency of this shampoo as it coats my hair and really feels like it's really getting to work. The lather is silky and luxurious. It makes my hair feeling really clean so that I feel nice and fresh all day.
It doesn't way my hair down and it seems in better condition. That said, it doesn't really stop it from getting bigger in the humidity but it does feel better protected against the elements. And it is bigger because of more controlled waves forming in the heat rather than a messy frizzy nest on my head so I don't really mind that. My hair feels stronger and it tangles and snaps less when I use this product.
Unfortunately this product is being discontinued, as are many of the other shampoos by Bedhead, because they have revamped their line of products. However, it is still widely available at the moment so if you move quickly, you'll be able to get your hands on it without a problem.
All in all, this is a lovely shampoo that protects your hair from heat damage and prevents the humidity from making your hair dry and frizzy. It smells delicious and the fragrance is long lasting. You hair feels nourished and soft, without being weighed down. This is a lovely product for taming unruly hair, especially when on holidays in a hot country. I take some in a little travel bottle if I'm going on holidays to a really humid country and it really helps to keep my hair under control.
I am a huge fan of Tigi products and regularly use their Brunette Goddess shampoo and conditioner to keep my hair in great condition. Occasionally, I will see a bargain Tigi product online and decide to try it, usually because I'm drawn to the packaging or I think the shampoo will be beneficial to my hair. Tigi products are usually quite expensive but can be found cheaper online, and this is how I came to own one of their new additions to the range, 'Some Like It Hot'. I bought it because it was very cheap online, and I couldn't resist the bright yellow bottle it came in, so here is my review of Tigi's Some Like It Hot shampoo.
As I mentioned, this is one of the newer products Tigi have added to their product range, and I purchased this shampoo in the summer of 2010, after my hair was constantly drying out in the sunshine and feeling a bit lacklustre. After a morning browsing online for a good "summer sunshine" shampoo, I stumbled across Some Like It Hot by Tigi. It's RRP is around £8-£9 per 250ml which isn't cheap, but I managed to buy a bottle for just £4.50 so I thought it was worth a try for that money. It comes in a highly distinctive bright yellow bottle, with the Tigi Bed Head brand logo at the top, and 'Some Like It Hot' in orange text with a little sun above the "i", a nice little summery touch!
The shampoo itself is a very pale yellow in colour, and of good thick consistency. I hate shampoos that are too thin and just run through your fingers too easily, but this one sits nicely in the palm of my hand when dispensed, and then works nicely into my hair. The shampoo is sulphate-free which means it doesn't lather up as much a lot of store bought shampoos, but I just splash a bit of water onto my shampooed hair and give it a good working in, and usually this makes it easier to spread about. The shampoo sits on the lid (an upside-down bottle) so it dispenses easily each time and is always ready to be dispensed. The way it sits also means it sits nicely on the side of the bath or in the bottom of the shower without falling over, and you can dispense the product with wet slippery hands!
The scent of this shampoo is what I adore about it - it screams summer the minute the I smell it, even now in the depths of a freezing cold winter! It is apparently a blend of avocado, grape, aloe and cucumber, and for me, the cucumber and avocado are the smells that really jump out - it's quite strong but in a really good way. It smells so refreshing and perfect for the summer, Tigi have definitely got this one bang on. After I've rinsed the product out, my hair feels squeaky clean and smells fab. It washes out really easily and doesn't leave any residue at all, something you'd definitely expect for a product of Tigi quality. When I dry my hair, I can always smell the fresh scent, and it really linger on my hair for a long time. I often wash my hair in the evening, and I can still smell it come morning. My hair feels so soft and is very shiny, and definitely makes me want to use it again.
'Some Like It Hot' is a shampoo designed to create a barrier to prevent against humidity, UV rays and thermal damage, and whilst I can't scientifically prove that this is the case, I can definitely say last summer my hair less dried out in the sun which is great, and has been in a great condition all winter too. I continued using my Brunette Goddess conditioner rather than the Some Like It Hot one, but after my success with the shampoo, I'll definitely buy one of those for this summer, especially as I'm off on holiday to Spain this summer. It smells gorgeous, the packaging looks great in my bathroom, and I think its very good value for money, especially if you can find a bargain online! I'd definitely recommend it if your hair struggles in the summer, it's fab!
Available online from various retailers. Cost is from £5-£9 for 250ml. A matching conditioner is also available.
Thank you for reading.
I first became aware of the Tigi range of hair care products when visiting my local hairdresser, in fact they are hardly local as they are in London, and my stylist used to try and get me to buy something, finally I gave in when, back in the summer, I asked advice on something suitable to stop hair frizz as we were off on holiday to warmer and more humid climes and my long hair is prone to go frizzy in such a climate, she recommended this Bedhead shampoo and also the conditioner, they were both £9.99 each which is arther pricey and really I should have gone and looked on the net as you can pick them up for £6 online.
The product range always looked quite eye catching and stylish on the shelves and the shampoo is no different as it comes in a bright yello bottle, the shampoo inside is actually a clear colour and quite thick. It contains aloe and cucumber so it is quite soothing on your scalp and has a fruity smell, apparently this is because it contains grape and avacado although no real strong individual fruit smell is distinguishable, rather it just has a fruity bouquet.
The shampoo does create quite a lot of lather from a fairly small amount which is a good thing given the price. I used it for a solid two week period when on holiday which gave it a good test of whether it can reduce frizz and it worked really well and I continued to use it when back in the UK. My hair felt pretty soft after using it but the results are not really noticeably different to other shampoos that I have used so I'm not really convinced that it justifies the prce tag unless you specifically want to use it in humid climates to reduce hair frizz. It does not leave your hair feeling heavy unlike other shampoos that make similar claims.
You do get a decent number of washes for your money as a little goes a long way however it only gets four stars from me bacause of the price.
I'm a sucker for all Bed Head / Tigi products so when I saw this one in the sale I had to give it a whirl. I straighten my hair almost daily so am always on the look out for products that will reduce the damage to my hair.
The tube is bright yellow so you'll never get it confused with someone else's. Also they'll have no excuse for 'accidentally' using yours.
It smells beautiful (smells of avocado, grape, aloe and cucumber) and lasts. Even after a night out I can still smell it.
I have pretty short hair so luckily don't have to use too much shampoo, therefore for me, the cost is fine as I feel I get enough washes out of it. However when I had long hair I wouldn't use it as I found it too expensive.
Pair it with the conditioner and result is pretty amazing. Hair feels smooth, soft and is much more manageable - especially when straightening.
After washing my hair there are no tangles, a comb slides straight through it.
If you have long hair the cost per wash is pretty steep.
It's hard to find! This particular one I've only found in one hairdressers.
As a fan of the brand I would recommend it to those who either straighten their hair or are going on holiday to a hot humid country. If this doesn't apply to you then I'd stick to another shampoo.
Bedhead by Tigi is such a great range of products, I just want them all! This is no exception. The Some Like it Hot line is designed to combat frizz caused by heat and humidty, and it does it's job well.
It comes in a yellow tube, with a clear plastic lid. Like all of the Bedhead products, it's an eye catching bottle; it's bright yellow, with the trademark bedhead fonts in black. The product itself is a clear liquid, and feels quite creamy for a shampoo. It smells really good, it contains grape, avocado, aloe and cucumber, so it has a really refreshing, summery smell.
It lathers up well in your hair, and smells really strongly. I use it with the matching conditioner, and when dry, my hair smells distinctively of this product, which is lovely! I like that my hair feels really clean, and not weighed down, but still really moisturised and smooth. I think it most coat the hair more than other products do, because my hair tends to be much less frizzy in heat after using this, so it's in my suitcase for my holiday!
I think it retails for around £10, but you can pick it up on the internet for £6-£7, I never pay full price for Tigi products as they are all widely available on the internet for less than their RRP. It is quite expensive for shampoo, but it's well worth the money, as it lasts for ages and really does work. I hope this was helpful, thanks for reading.
