It's a 10 Miracle Leave-in Product

sreda, avgust 19, 2015


I got this way back for as a gift to myself for my birthday. As a hair junkie I was itching to try this because this is super popular and highly-rated in the US, so I really wanted to see what all the fuss is about. Much like the here more familiar Uniq One, it promises to do everything apart from iron your shirts and I must admit I'm always very apprehensive about such products, but rave reviews got to me. I have to say that my gut was right one more time, but it at least does the basic thing I expected from it and that is protect from heat. 

The texture was a surprise to me. I expected a regular liquid leave-in, much like Sexy Healthy Hair Soy Tri-Wheat Leave-in Conditioner simply because it's a spray, but this one is kind of a mix of a light lotion and an almost mousse texture. It's still easy to spray on the hair, despite the thicker-than-usual texture for a spray pump. You can also spray it into your palm and apply it that way if you wish to. It smells pleasant, but I can't describe the scent well other than it's one of those hair salon ones.


Moving on to the promises, I was most looking forward to the promise of reducing frizz, but there are nine more. Let's go through them one by one:
1. Repairs dry, damaged hair - honestly it's way too light to really help with the dryness. It's nothing like Kérastase Nectar Thermique, but I guess it should help with moderate dryness.
2. Adds shine - I don't know, I guess so. My hair is very dark, so it obviously has plenty of shine on its own. Blondes could tell you more at this point.
3. Detangles - my hair isn't that tangly, but I haven't noticed a massive difference when using this. The conditioner does the job of making the hair easier to comb anyway.
4. Controls frizz - much to my disappointment no. Sebastian Professional Potion 9 is still the best for this job.
5. Seals and protects hair colour - I don't dye my hair, so I don't know about this.
6. Prevents split ends - I haven't noticed a reduction in split ends or breakage. So no, it doesn't work.
7. Stops hair breakage - As I said above, no.
8. Creates silkiness - my hair is naturally never silky because it's so thick and this makes it a bit silkier, but not a lot compared to Kérastase Nutritive line.
9. Enhances natural body - I have plenty of natural volume, but this doesn't give me more body like for example got2b Volumania Mousse or Kérastase Forme Fatale
10. Flat iron spray and thermal protector - yes and that's actually the only thing I'd categorize this as -  a classic, light heat protector. It's doesn't weight down the hair, it does its job and that it. Nothing fancy about it.


So was it worth tracking down? I wasn't blown away by it. The rave about it is huge, but for me this is just a standard, light heat protection. I do like it, don't get me wrong, I actually like having such easy products, but there are so many other ones that do that bit more for my hair. I haven't tried Uniq One to compare the two, but I imagine they are very similar. Both filled with promises that mostly fail to deliver, but if they described the product more modestly and state what it actually is, I'd be a lot more pleased. 
If you live in a place where this is readily available and don't mind paying 18 $ for a nice heat protection spray, then go for it. But for us who need to track it down on places like eBay, I don't think it's worth the trouble.
I got it on eBay for 13.33 € without shipping, which was obviously high. 

Have a great day!

  1. Well, that's a let down. I have heard so many great things about this but didn't want to add yet another product to my mile long list of hair junk already in my bathroom. Sounds like it will do just like the Garnier sleek and shine spray already does.

    1. It's certainly not a miracle product as it promises, but it's at least a nice heat protection spray :). I think that Fructis' Sleek and Shine spray works better on frizz than this, the ingredients reminds of got2b Oil-licious (öl-la-la in german countries), which I use for taming frizz and adding shine.

  2. Jaz imam tudi vedno probleme z izdelki, ki obljubljajo 100 stvari in še več. To se mi zdi nesmiselno iz marketinškega vidika, kot da ne znajo izpostaviti eno lastnost, ki je potem res odlična. Bo pa vsaj za sušenje, da ni vse izgubljeno :)

    1. Večno pretiravanje s strani znamk, ja :/ Sploh ne berem opisov na zadnji strani izdelkov, reklamam se pa tudi izogibam, ker me zelo živcirajo. Saj je spodobna zaščita proti vročini, ni pa nič posebnega glede na to da je tak hype okrog njega in ni ravno poceni.

    1. They is quite a hype about it, yes. But it doesn't perform amazingly on my super dry hair. It's nice, but nothing rave worthy :)
