Umberto Giannini is absolutely my favourite brand of haircare products, however it is a lot more expensive than other less luxurious brands, so whilst I love it, sometimes I have to remind myself that there are cheaper products out there.
The Umberto Giannini Sleek & Chic Blow Dry spray is one of the products that I keep coming back to. Like all the products in the 'Sleek & Chic' range the bottle is light blue is colour, it also has a light blue, transparent plastic cap on the spraypump.
The 'sleek & chic' range has a gorgeous smell, I can't work out what it smells of, I guess you will have to try it for yourself!
As well as making blowdrying easier, this product also provides heat protection which is very useful as I do subject my hair to alot of straightening and it has a tendency to get very dry at the best of times.
All of Umberto Giannini's products are used in their salons, so theoretically you should be able to use them to create a salon finish at home.
I follow the instructions on the bottle and spray this lightly through my hair, avoiding the roots. I do also brush my hair to ensure that the product is fully spread through my hair.
I blowdry my hair using a roundbrush and the results are consistently impressive, my hair is straight, sleek and glossy, but without looking as though it has been weighed down as can sometimes happen with straightening products.
I find that if I take the time to blowdry my hair in sections (which I don't always do) then yes, my hair looks as though it could get away without me using the straighteners, just like when I go to the hairdressers (I still straighten it any way or get the hairdresser to, I think it's some sort of compulsion, the thought of not using straighteners on my hair really panics me!)
This product doesn't weigh down your hair at all and I still find myself looking at my hair in amazement a couple of days after washing it, because it still doesn't look particularly greasy! I find that a bottle lasts forever, I actually get bored of it by the time it's finished, but it's certainly economical and lasts much much longer than many cheaper products.
Umberto Giannini Sleek & Chic Blowdry Spray can be found in Boots for £4.69 for a 200ml bottle, it also comes in a travel size 50ml bottle and is very highly recommended from me.
