SPRING15' - MY FAVOURITE HAIR STYLING PRODUCTS FROM THE JOICO RANGE FEAT. SCULPTING GEL, BLOWOUT PERFECTING CREME + THERMAL PROTECTANT SPRAY REVIEW!


HELLO BEAUTIES! 

Joico - "All for the love of beauty"


Styling our hair with the essential products is always important. No-one likes loose curls because effort is wasted when we haven't used the right products to achieve a certain hairstyle. Thankfully, for the Joico haircare brand, we have recently seen some of their products being used on famous celebrites such as Jamie Chung for NYFW15 (as pictured above). Her gorgeous waves are seriously amazing and is so trending right now for the ideal "glam" and "chic" hairstyle. It's perfect for a special occasion because it doesn't look overdone. 

To achieve the hair look above, you're going to need to use the appropriate hair styling products in order to make it stay in place for the whole day. I've actually tried these products from the Joico range myself and I am so excited to share with you into detail of what I thought of them and how it benefited me. The products I looked to check out include of the following: 

  • Joico - Power Gel (Hold Tenue 10) - Sculpting Gel Sculptant 
  • Joico - Iron Clad (Hold Tenue 01) - Thermal Protectant Spray
  • Joico - Heat Set (Hold Tenue 03) - Blowout Perfecting Creme 

Featuring some of my Spring Favourite Hair Styling Products for SPRING15' includes from the Joico haircare brand. And before you ask what exactly is Joico...here is a quick rundown of what you need to know.

JOICO - POWER GEL, SCULPTING GEL, GEL SCULPTANT

Hold Tenue = 10 

Featuring an ULTRA firm gel with Aqualastik that locks in style with flexible yet powerful, non-stiff hold for up to 24 hours. 

If you're looking for a super product that can really look to hold in your style (no matter what style you have it in), then you must check out Joico's Power Gel, Sculpting Gel. It's serious hair business when it comes to using this product because it really has an ultra-firm hold along with a shine boosting formula which gives you an amazing overall result to your desired hair style.There is no flaking or frizzing involved here once you apply the product through your damp hairstyle. What's more is that it does not get stiff or crunchy like some other gels out there. 

An interesting aspect of this Power Gel is that it looks to shield your hair from further thermal damage. What more do you want with a hair gel right? This product is seriously amazing where it looks to deliver if you're wanting that ultimate hold and are in need of a shine boost to your hair. 

This product is mostly suited for those who have fine or coarse hair. It's basically an alcohol-free product which already makes it gentle and safe to use. If you're wanting your hairstyle to hold such as your curls, beach waves or funky hairdo, then the Power Gel will definitely work for you in this case. What makes the product so significant is that it contains a secret ingredient which includes the 'Opal powder'. This is where it works to deliver amazing elasticity and shine to your overall hairstyle look. The AquaLastik (as previously mentioned) which is their deep-sea antioxidant protects the strands from heat styling (up to 450 degrees of protection). 

The Power Gel is also super fast drying which leaves a silky feel upon application so that it makes your hair so much more manageable to work with. I love how it does not leave my hair feeling greasy. It is also great to note that it's super colour safe to use and it makes an awesome thermal protectant from further heat damage (which might be from heat styling products!) 

HOW TO USE: 
  • How I would use this product is to use just a small dollop and look to distribute this all over damp hair. 
  • Next, it's time to put in your rollers, bobby pins, start styling as usual 
  • What's more is that if you want to keep on fiddling with your hairstyle, then you can simply add a few drops of water. 
  • Next air or blow dry your hair.

 JOICO - IRON CLAD, THERMAL PROTECTANT SPRAY 

Hold Tenue = 01

Featuring a fast-dry, non-sticky thermal heat protectant spray.

Joico's Ironclad Thermal Protectant Spray looks to protect your hair from further heat damage that's caused by thermal styling tools i.e your blow hair-dryer or hair straightener. What this beauty bottle of Thermal protectant spray looks to do is to ensure your hair stays stronger, smoother and static free.

After using this spray, I have taken note that it really has a 72 hour frizz reduction. Frizz is instantly reduced and I did not see any frizz showing up on my hair which was a positive aspect to using this product. Also, the spray can resist high heat giving the best heat protection to your hair whilst using the heat styling tools. I found the spray to be very fast-drying and was not even sticky at all. I was definitely surprised to see how that it gave me a light hold to my hair at level 1. Static to your hair is also instantly reduced which is good because you don't want fly-aways or any hair sticking up when you are at an event. 

The product contains "Aqualistic" which is another term for having the properties of flexible hold and heat protection to your hair. Fact: Aqualistic is Joico's antioxidant that's activated by heat and light which provides protection against the heat styling products, but also offering flexible Level 1 hold. 

So really what you get here is a multi-purpose product that really looks to deliver many benefits to your hair. There's also Bio-Advanced Peptide Complex present in the spray which actually makes your hair stronger and shinier. After using the spray, I could definitely see an instant shine to my long locks and I am quite pleased with that. It literally took one spritz for me to achieve that. (amazing!) 

We don't know it but without using a heat thermal protectant spray, your hair is more exposed to heat hence this leaves to further hair damage such as split ends, dryness and so many more factors. Therefore it's quite handy to have a bodyguard in place for your hair. (Not literally guys, but you get what I mean). The IRONCLAD really looks to create a super protective barrier for your hair between the heat; whilst fighting any frizz and static for a full 72 hours. 

The IRONCLAD is made for all hair types to use and especially for those who are frizz-prone, you'll seriously fall in LOVE with this.

HOW TO USE: 
  • Look to hold the can 8-10cm away from your hair and then spritz the hair liberally before any exposure to your hair styling tools.
WHERE TO PURCHASE: 

JOICO - BLOWOUT PERFECTING CREME

Featuring an all-in-one blow dry styling creme. 

How this hair product works is that the Heat Set Blowout Perfecting Creme looks to reduce any drying time (something I always want to quickly do after washing my hair) and also looks to perfects hair by looking to detangle, de-frizz and keep hair looking fresher for longer. The creme itself is very lightweight and does not even feel heavy or sticky when applied into the hair. It can be applied alone or layered to maximise your blow-out.

If you are wanting to extend your style and minimise your need to wash daily, then this product can help you in this case, For my hair, I always love to wash all of the products out at the end of the day to keep my hair feeling healthier and softer, 

The Heat Set Blowout Creme also looks to shield and protect hair from any thermal damage which may be caused by heat styling tools. The formula itself is super lightweight and does not even feel thick when it's in your hair. I also noticed that it helped to reduce my frizz so this was a major plus for me. Also, the Heat Set creme looks to create a seal around each hair shaft so hair stays cleaner and more vibrant. This is so essential for if you're out in a really hot and humid condition - you'll be grateful that you've used the Heat Set creme where it can actually leave your hair feeling cleaner for longer.

The creme looks to protect the hair from further heat damage and can reduce breakage by over 25%. It's made colour safe so for those who are curious to see if this would work for colour treated hair, it's very safe for all hair types to use. Overall, my thoughts on this product was highly impressive. I love how much volume this product gives to my hair, almost as if it's been styled in the hair salon but really I styled it right at home. Also, it's incredible of how clean it keeps my hair throughout the day which is ideal for hot and humid weather conditions. I am certainly going to keep using this product because I'm really in love with how it works for my hair.

HOW TO USE:
  • Work this creme through damp hair from the roots to the ends. Distribute this evenly. 
  • Next blow dry hair in sections and look to style as usual.
