HAIRCARE REVIEW: FEAT. SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL (SP) WELLA SMOOTHEN MASK + LUXE OIL RE-CONSTRUCTIVE ELIXIR !



HAPPY WEEKENDS TO YOU ALL! 

Are we all glad that the week has flown by so quickly and we are ready to pamper and get our hair and nails done? (I sure am!) 

For this review, it will be strictly hair care related and I am excited to share what I thought about the Wella, System Professionals Haircare range. You don't know but our hair requires treatment - it can get damaged by the sun or even by brushing your hair. For me, lately I have discovered that my ends were getting extremely dry and sometimes the roots would get a tad oily. It all comes down to how well you really take care of your hair. Thankfully, I tried out a few hair care products that are life savers from the Wella SP range - The Smoothen Mask and also the Luxe Oil, Re-Constructive Elixir. 

Scroll down to find out more about what I thought about: 
  • Wella SP - Smoothen Mask 
  • Wella SP - Luxe Oil, Re-Constructive Elixir


Wella SP - Smoothen Mask 

The Wella SP Smoothen mask is an intensive treatment where it's able to smooth out any of thick, coarse hair. The mask is blended in with Avocado oil, Hydrolysed Keratin and Pro Vitamin V5. The Smoothen mask looks to rejuvenate, nourish and deeply condition thick and unruly hair. At the same time, if you have frizzy or tangled hair there's Wella SP's exclusive Active Cashmere which effectively assists hair in smoothing out any tangled ends. 

To use the mask is simple and very easy. I would just work the product evenly into my pre-shampooed, towel-dried hair beforehand. I would then leave the product on for about five minutes and then look to rinse my hair thoroughly. After using the hair mask, I felt my hair feeling very soft and de-tangled. Before, my hair was so dry on the ends - I needed a quick fix to the hydration of my hair. After using the hair mask, I've noticed more of my ends becoming smoother and there was less frizz to it. The instructions said to leave it on for five minutes, but I extended this to a further ten minutes the next time I applied the hair mask on. I found the results to be much better for my hair since it's constantly dry so this worked much better for me. 

One thing to consider when using hair mask is to really clean and rinse off the mask completely whilst in the shower. It's highly recommended that you run your fingers through your hair to ensure all parts are thoroughly rinsed. 

The hair mask came in a 200ml plastic tub and its consistency is of a white, thick cream based. The scent of the product is quite fresh and pleasant. It doesn't smell harsh at all which is a good thing. The mask doesn't stick on solid when left on hair, but instead it vanishes once you apply the product on. This mask did not make my hair feel oily or greasy afterwards which was definitely a plus for me. I really couldn't stop feeling my hair! 

Overall, it was my first time trying on a hair mask so my impression of this product was right on point. I am definitely satisfied with this product as it has left me with better and smoother looking hair. I don't notice anymore frizz which is really ideal. I am giving this a 5/5 stars! 

POSITIVES:
  • Makes hair feel smooth and soft. 
  • Controls and tames frizz. 
  • Smells pleasant. 
  • Does not feel greasy or oily when on hair. 

NEGATIVES: 
  • Zilch

BEAUTY TIPS:
  • Leave on the mask for about 5-10 minutes. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 



Wella SP - Luxe Oil, Re-Constructive Elixir

This is an amazing type of hair oil treatment, which has been formulated to enhance the look and feel of hair. It leaves a glossy and smooth finish once you've applied the oil throughout your hair. For me in this case, this was applied on the mid-ends of my hair. 

The Luxe oil has quite a lightweight formula where it contains argan oil which gives a more nourishment treatment to hair, jojoba oil for the repair of dry ends and finally almond oil for its hydrating properties. When applied onto the hair, the oil infuses into the hair structure protecting the Keratin which then gives your hair a smoother overall look and feel to it. 

I love the Luxe oil because all I need is two pumps of the product for my hair to really look smooth and healthier looking. I am actually amazed by what it can do and my hair has never so smooth! You really don't need that much product for one treatment and I would definitely recommend this product to those looking to combat dry ends and just want their hair back to its smooth and natural state again. 

So for me, after I've shampooed and conditioned my hair normally, blow dried it well and then using my GHD straightener - I would then apply the Luxe oil to my mid lengths and ends of the hair for a more nourished and healthier look. When running my fingers through my hair, it just felt so smooth! The smell of the oil is described as sweet candy.. I can't get over the scent because it's so addictive and sweet. I don't think I can get sick of it because it's just sooooo good! It's a nice and pleasant smell to have with hair and I am definitely a true fan of the Luxe oil by SP Wella. Overall my heart is set on the Luxe oil and I am using this every second day to retain the smooth and nourished hair look. I am definitely giving this a 5/5 stars! 

POSITIVES:
  • Ideal for those with frizzy, dry, thick and coarse looking hair.
  • Smell is amazing and so addictive! 
  • Smoothens out the hair. 
  • Keeps hair shiny and nourished throughout the day. 
  • Goodbye to hair frizz! 

NEGATIVES:
  • Zilch! 

BEAUTY TIPS: 
  • Use only about 2 pumps of the oil because a little goes a long way. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE: 


I hope you enjoyed this special hair care segment!

 Get shopping and your hair pampered Ladies & Gents, 

Cheers all,
