I have a bad habit of trying out beauty products when I visit the home of others - terrible I know but I always have an urge to have a spray of something if it looks nice. I think my Mum clicked that I liked trying out the different products in her bathroom - no doubt because I would come downstairs smelling of them! With this in mind, she bought me a few bits and pieces a few weeks ago and this included the Tropical Hair Mist that I had been sneaking sprays of since before Christmas!
This is a fairly priced product in my opinion and whilst the packaging is nothing outstanding, it is practical. The bottle is the right size to store in my handbag too if I want to use this whilst out and about. The mist is very easy to use. My hair is just down past my shoulders and is quite thick so I use a few sprays of this mist each time and find this to be sufficient. The liquid released is a fine mist which leaves a very light, damp feeling on my hair but doesn't leave it soaking wet. It dries in quickly too and leaves no residue. It is very lightweight whilst on my hair.
As I dye my hair regularly, I am always looking for products which will keep my colour looking bright and shiny. I wouldn't say that this mist has the same impact as a more professional hair finishing shine but it does leave my hair looking fairly shiny through the day and not at all greasy. The bottle has 'shimmer' written on it but I cannot say that this mist leaves my hair looking shimmery at all.
The main appeal of this mist for me personally, is the scent. I find it to be beautifully Summery. At first, there is a little bit of an alcohol aroma but this subsides and gives way to a tropical, fruity smell. It is refreshing and quite natural smelling. I find that it leaves my hair smelling beautiful and lasts for a few hours. I don't find that the smell takes over any perfume I choose to wear but simply leaves my hair smelling fresh and clean. Whilst it isn't a dry shampoo, I find it perfect for spraying on between washes to keep my hair smelling pleasant.
This is an inexpensive mist which smells lovely and leaves my hair with a light shine. It isn't the best finishing product I have used but it is great for using during the Summer and would be perfect for taking on holiday due to the tropical scent. I have been using it regularly since Mum bought me it and find that it has lasted very well. It is very gentle on my hair and scalp which is an essential aspect for me as some hair care products irritate my sensitive scalp.
