“ Brand: Umberto Giannini / Sprays / Type: Body Spray / Suitable for: dry hair „
I was very surprised on my last visit to the hairdressers, to see that my hairdresser used volumising spray on my hair before she blow dried it. I've always avoided any hair products which are volumising because I think that my hair has quite enough volume of its own without adding anything more, however I was really impressed with the results of my haircut and I wondered whether I should try a volumising spray myself.
I happily went to Boots where I picked up the Umberto Giannini Enviable Body Blow Dry Spray. Full price this product costs £4.69 in Boots and I have also seen Umberto Giannini products in Sainsburys. As Boots had Umberto Giannini on offer, I was able to pick up two products for £7 which seemed quite good value to me.
All of the Umberto Giannini volumising range come in light green bottles, so they are easily recognisable. The blow dry spray comes in a 200ml bottle with a light green plastic lid.
I sprayed the product all over my hair holding the bottle about 20 cm away from my hair, the first thing I noticed was that it smelled refreshingly of cucumber. I brushed my hair to make sure that the product was evenly spread through my hair and set to work blowdrying.
The results were really impressive, I had half expected to end up with a complete disaster, but this wasn't the case at all. My hair was quite glossy and it seemed to have more lift to it, I could certainly tell the difference with my hair, but it wasn't too much, I've just had my hair cut into a bob, so I do like it to have a little bit of lift and volume and this really did the job for me.
I noticed that my hair wasn't weighed down or greasy at all which was another plus point for this product, although to be honest from my previous experiences of Umberto Giannini I would have been surprised to have had greasy hair as a result of using this product.
The product also provides heat protection and helps to decrerase the amount of time you spend blowdrying which I didn't realise when I bought it, so these were an added bonus for me when I realised.
All in all, I'm really impressed by this product! I think that if you were wanting to add a lot of volume to your hair then you would just need to use more spay as I don't really use a lot of it. I can tell that this bottle is going to last me ages, so it's also economical too.
