I was given this as a gift for Christmas, along with the Straightening Addict Shampoo and Conditioner.
As I have wavy hair - and a GHD addict, I love straightening, or indeed curling my hair using them, but have found that that my hair has suffered as a result of me trying to achieve that sleek look.
I like to try different products because my hair is very fine and if I use one range for too long, I find it does not work as well for me. The Trevor Sorbie range is great.. It is definitely something I would go out and pay for because it smells great, you dont need to use too much of the product - so while it isnt the cheapest on the market, it does last long - and doesnt clog up your hair, making it feel light and easy to work with.
i also use this spray when my hair is dry to gift it a little lift if needed when restyling and it absorbs quickly and easily.
I first bought this product after a visit to Boots where the trevor Sorbie products were three for two.
I bought it with the Straightening Addict shampoo & conditioner.
It has a lovely fresh & fruity smell which lasts till the next wash.
After I had used this for about a month I had my usual trip to the hair dressers where I normally get told 'you must stop straightening your hair as much as it has all snapped'. Instead of hearing this I got told 'your hair is in much better condition'.
I was really happy at this as I have quite long hair and was thinking about getting it cut very short to try and repair it.
The benefits of this product are that it creates soft & shiny hair, eliminates frizz, eliminates static, lightweight formulation and protects & prepares hair for heat styling.
This product is a light, non greasy thermal protection spray which helps protect and nourish hair without leaving any residue. It creates soft, shiney and static free straight hair.
Bought alone this product is approx £5 but at shops such as Boots there are sometimes offers on like three for two or 3 for £10 which makes it good value for money.
I was first bought this spray for Christmas last year by my mum. She knows how dry my hair is, and how addicted to straightening I am, so she got me a whole bunch of things from the Trevor Sorbie Straightening Addict range. As well as the Blow Dry Spray, they make shampoos, conditioners, "hair mask", balms and various sprays.
The Blow Dry Spray comes in a clear, good quality, plastic bottle that has a pale pink tinge - this tinge combined with the light pink liquid inside makes it an attractive mid-pink colour, and with the label's minimalistic style (just a similarly coloured band around the middle of the bottle with black writing), gives the product a 'professional' appeal. Of course it helps that Trevor Sorbie writes 'professional' beneath his name.
Trevor Sorbie Blow Dry Spray is designed with people who straighten their hair regularly in mind, although it seems to me to be a product that could be used by anyone who would benefit from its properties.
The idea of the spray is that it protects and repairs hair, and replaces "essential moisture".
It is mainly designed for use on damp hair (wash, towel dry and spray liberally). Once washed and towel dried, you can spray the product through your hair, then blow dry as normal.
When you do spray, it comes out in a fine mist that dampens your hair more, but doesn't saturate it, and it smells divine! The only way to describe the smell is as that 'salon' smell - very fresh and clean, with a hint of chemical (but not in a bad way).
When you have dried your hair after using the Blow Dry Spray, you find immediately that your hair seems healthier - the spray seems to give hair a 'shine' , and it looks very clean and feels soft and healthy to the touch. It also minimises static - I usually suffer from staticy, almost frizzy hair, but this spray really seems to alleviate that. The bonus I have found with this spray is that it makes my hair much easier to dry in a sensible fashion - by that I mean when I dry my hair, normally it is frizzy and hard to manage, and takes a day to settle down (hence me not washing my hair every day - I'd have constantly horrible hair!). With this spray, I find it much easier to dry my hair almost straight, and it almost disposes of the need to use my straighteners at all.
One other major benefit of this spray is that you can also use it on dry hair between washes to freshen it up or re-style. It would be easy to think that doing this would make your hair appear greasy, but in fact it does the opposite. You can spray this on your hair, quickly blow dry and straighten, and almost have your hair look freshly washed and styled - ideal for those mornings when you got up late and have to leave the house in 15 minutes (most mornings for me!).
Trevor Sorbie Blow Dry spray is excellent. It does exactly what it says on the tin, makes your hair shiny and healthy looking, and can be used on wet or dry hair. It doesn't leave any sticky residue, and makes styling a doddle. The spray includes green tea extracts and grapeseed (antioxidants) and Vitamin E, which do the job of protecting hair from the heat of blow drying and straightening.
As even MORE of a bonus, it has UV filters to prevent the damage and colour fading that the sun can bring, so it's an ideal item to take on holiday. The bottle also claims to protect from free redical damage, and though I can't vouch for that fact, it does everything else it claims to do, so why not?
At £4.99 for 200ml from Boots, I think this is a product well worth investing in.
