Hair Styling Products Online Review
Over the last 30 years as a hairstylist, I have personally used and tested many hair care and styling products on my clients, family, and friends hair.
While it’s good to try new products and fragrances, particularly when you get them for free from the retailer in the hope that you write them positive reviews, it definitely goes without saying that not all hair products are made EQUAL.
Many of the styling products I have tried have been complete and utter failures, that didn’t do what they where designed to do at all and in some cases left the hair and hairstyle worse for wear.
How to find the most suited styling product:
So as a “stylish hopeful” where does one start to look or whom should you listen to and TRUST?
Your hairdresser is naturally the first person to ask for advice, but be careful here because in many cases they may be promoting only one or a few select ranges that they have available with biased and invested interests.
Asking friends can be helpful, but be weary because what works for them and their hair type may not work for you.
You should try searching online as this is a good place to begin. Use the web to research, read reviews, compare products, and prices and all from the comfort of your armchair. The more informed that you are, the better chance you will have of finding the best possible styling product for your hair type, and hairstyle requirements.
What to look for in a styling product:
Remember that a styling product’s predominate function is to help you recreate your hairstyle, make your job easier, and make it hold and LAST. The list below shows many detailed examples of what different hair styling products have been designed to do.
- To hold your hairstyle in place over time.
- To help create volume and body.
- To add texture and defined shape.
- To add shine and gloss.
- To enhance or define natural curls & waves.
- To help smooth out frizz or unruly hair.
- To guard and protect hair from heat, styling, and the outdoor elements.
- To add moisture and seal the cuticle.
- Wash out in water (water soluble) the good ones.
So look at your current hairstyle and styling needs first, and then choose the best styling product to suit these attributes.
After using several products, there where two haircare styling products that passed the test with flying colours from the EDGY range of styling products. Both products did exactly what they claim to do, help support and hold the hairstyles, while washing out completely (water soluble).
1: Edgy Smoothe n Grume
This 3 in 1 leave in conditioner and styling cream has a pleasant fresh fruit aroma and is perfect for dry or wrecked hair. You only need to apply a small amount (roughly the size of a dollar coin) on damp hair, to the mid lengths and ends before blow-drying and styling. You will immediately notice how your hair becomes detangled and more durable, easier to comb and brush. The product has a UV protector built into it that will shield your hair protecting it during styling and then afterwards when you venture outdoors.
What completely sold me was how my blow-drying time was actually more than halved. So not only did all my client’s hair look and feel amazing, but it actually saved me valuable styling time while it helped hold their hairdo’s all day too.
PRICE: I rate this as very affordable, only $18.95 for a professional salon quality product 200 mls in size.
Where to buy it:
Edgy Smoothe n Grume is available from most leading hair salons or right here
2: Edgy Fiberfi Matt Paste
Is a water-soluble and pliable paste with a strong hold factor used mainly on shorter haircuts that require ragged texture. This product works really well on straight to wavy hair types on both men and women. What I particularly liked about the paste was how it also helped to add volume and body to fine hair types without the sticky effect, and how it completely washes out and does not build up in the hair.
Fiberfi will allow you to place and shape your hair in any way you like and won’t “lock you out” like some other strong hold pastes on the market, meaning that you have time to manipulate the style before it sets.
PRICE: Exceptional price and great value, only $18.95 for 100 grams that should last many months.
Where to buy it:
Edgy Fiberfi Matt Paste is available from most leading hair salons or here
So once you work out which product is for you, give it a go. I am sure that you will be very impressed as I was.
