TIGI Bed Head “After Party” Review ‚ô•

Hello Angels,

I know I know its been fairly long since I’ve been here, but what can I do, I guess I’m just a lazy a**. There I said it, THE TRUTH is out there now, off my chest. ūüôā

Coming to the review, TIGI was kind enough to send this product to me for review, after using it several times, I seriously am in LOOOOOVE with this product. Let me break it down for you.

1-IMG_3124

Price: Rs 1000/- for 100ml

I adore the packaging, the bottle is plastic in a neon pink color. It comes with a pump dispenser, which is extremely convenient to use.

Here is a list of the ingredients from the company’s website:

  • Dimethiconol – Imparts shine and body
  • Propylene Glycol – Conditions and moisturizes hair
  • Mica – Enhances shine
  • Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil – Provides gloss
  • Bismuth Oxychloride (CI 77163) – Enhances shine

And here is what the product claims:

The perfect party favor. After-Party hair creme for silky, smooth, shiny, healthy looking hair. Control the funky flyaways and silk-ify your hair.

My Take on the product:

First thing you notice is the fragrance, it smells amaaazing, I don’t know how to describe but it just smells really nice. Then i just spread it on my palms and then work it on towel-dried hair. I feel, it works better on wet hair, rather than dried. As soon as I apply it, my hair instantly feels soft and silky. Then I usually blow dry, and then flat-iron or curl it. The end result is awesome!! My hair feels soft, manageable, the flyaways are tamed and the flat-ironing or the curls last much longer.

Pros:

  • Packaging is cute and the pump is makes it easy to use.
  • Smells amazing
  • Does what it says on the packaging
  • Makes hair soft and silky
  • Prolongs hair styling
  • Really tames frizzy hair
  • No parabens

Cons:

  • Can’t think of any, except that availability might be an issue for some

Overall Rating: A+

 

 

 

 

 

Caring for your manes this monsoon!!

Every change of season throws up a new challenge for the hair. The warm and humid monsoon months make hair maintenance a challenge – acid rain, dirty rainwater and increased levels of humidity trip away the outermost layer of the hair strand cuticle making it brittle, rough and prone to dryness.

If you are big on the blow dries, the monsoon is a really good time for quick and easy hair do’s like scrunching or wearing it in messy buns, braids or ponytails.

Enjoy this summer season without compromising on your hair lengths

Marcus Francis, TRESemmé’s official stylist shares tips to maintain healthy hair

Summer is here and we are sure you are well stocked for this bright season. While your sun-screens, sun-shades and hats are all set to protect your beautiful skin, what are you doing for your hair during summer?

Did I hear you say ‚ÄėNothing‚Äô? Well, that is certainly not great news for your crowning glory.

Your hair is exposed to many harsh elements during summers and can have numerous after effects. Needless to say, this will leave you rather unhappy.  Over exposure to sun’s harmful rays, sweat, humidity and of course, spending too much time in a swimming pool all have unpleasant after effects. It often leads to lead to dull, dry and brittle hair causing splitends and damaged hair.  A little pre-emptive care is all your hair needs to stay beautiful throughout this season!

  

Marcus Francis, TRESemmé’s official stylist shares tips on how to maintain healthy hair and protect your ends during the summer months without using scissors.

Marcus Francis - Global hairstylist TREsemme

Tip #1 ‚Äď Be Sun Smart!

UV rays are bad news for our skin, as well as hair.  Too much sun can leave hair dry, brittle and faded. So, always COVER your hair before leaving the house. Use hats, scarves, bandanas or umbrella to protect your hair from those harmful rays.

Tip #2 ‚Äď Get rid of SPLITENDS!

Dry brittle hair can cause splitends which will run down to the root of your hair if not treated. Trimming is not the answer to split ends, as in most cases, you will instead end up with rough edges and increased split ends. Use TRESemmé Split Remedy Shampoo and conditioner which reduces 96% splitends in just three washes.

Tip #3 ‚Äď Say NO to chemical processing

Avoid chemical processing such as colouring, bleaching, stripping or excessive salon styling of hair during summer. Not a hair-friendly season to undergo harsh treatments.

Tip # 4 – Always BRUSH your hair!

Brushing your hair regularly will not only keep it free from knots, but it will stimulate circulation in the scalp which encourages blood flow to the roots of your hair. The golden rule of brushing is: The longer your hair, the bigger your brush should be. But NEVER brush or comb wet hair. This can lead to hair breakage at the ends.

Tip #5 ‚Äď AVOID tight hairstyles

Tight hairstyles pull and tug at your tresses that cause splitends and hair breakage. Opt for loose summer trendy hairstyles like braids, waves, sleek low ponytails etc. One can also go for variations in these hairstyles like fishtail or French braid, loose or tousled waves, sleek high ponytail or centre part low ponytail.

Style your hair differently this winter!

image001

Winter has arrived and it calls for a change in wardrobe with lots of woolens and jackets, and scarves and hats! But why leave your hair behind? This winter style your hair differently and flaunt your tresses while protecting it.

Don‚Äôt be afraid to think ‚Äėoutside of the box‚Äô when it comes to a new style this season. Dare to go short, add some layers, rock a bang or try anew hair color. On the occasion of TRESemm√©‚Äôs first anniversary, Marcus Francis, Global hairstylist TRESemm√© shares some tips on how you can craft your hair this winter!

 

Experimenting with hues

ombre-hair

Cold seasons are the perfect time to darken your locks. Choose your natural shade to just a shade darker to complement the dreary cold days and the heavier clothing that you’re wearing.

For Indian skin tone, try warmer colors to suit your complexion. One can go for darkest brown, golden honey blonde and deep red to be as dramatic as the cold weather. Burgundy is another popular color on olive and yellow skin tones.

 

Opt for Bangs

Now is the perfect time to opt for bangs. Heavy, blunt bangs and straight-edged hair help make a sweater and dark jeans and boots look all the more fashionable. If you do not want heavy-thick bangs, even side-swept bangs for the winter months are a great change. It gives you a softer look bringing the focus on your eyes.

 

Layer your hair

If you have long or medium length hair, adding layers will give you a glamorous look this winter. Layeringmakes your hair look more voluminous especially for women with thin hair. If you have thick, long hair, this style will suit you the best as layering will break bulky texture and set you free from exhausting styling.

 

Romantic Curls

The winter season also means a whole lot of parties, flirty-romantic curls, last minute shopping and much more. Be dramatic and create loose ringlets in your hair and pin back one side behind your ear with a pearly or jewel-toned hair clip.

 

Play with accessories

Whether you let your hair loose or braid it up, or tie a bun or a pony, add some accessories to your hair before you step out. Embellished bobby pins, head bands or elastic bands just add a chic look to your winter style. Just carry few bobby pins and hair pins in your bag and you can style your hair anytime.

 

 

Braids, knots and buns

Braids, knots and buns are great for winter as well. While summer is all about windswept, beachy hair, winter seasons are all about looking polished with warm winter jackets, thick sweaters, and turtlenecks. Having your hair pulled back simply in a bun, braid, or knot helps your silhouette and complements bangs for winter. Particularly for darker hair in winter, these styles are great ways to keep your hair from adding onto bulky winter clothing, to give you a complete look all around.

Moisturize

  • During winter it‚Äôs very important to keep your hair hydrated and nourished with conditioners and hair masques
  • Apply a generous amount of a suitable hair masque from mid-length to the ends for 3-5 minutes and then rinse off. Ideally this should be practiced twice a week
  • A good option for masques is the newly launched TRESemm√© Anti Breakage Masque and TRESemm√© Smooth and Shine Masque. Its intense conditioning properties make hair softer, smoother and more manageable.

Don’t be harsh

  • Do not shampoo your hair too often as it depletes your natural hair oils. 2-3 times a week may suffice
  • Avoid washing your hair with hot water in winter as it leaves your scalp dry and flaky and brittles your hair. Luke warm to cold water is ideal
  • It‚Äôs recommended to change your regular shampoo every 3-6 to avoid your hair getting immune to it.
  • Also use shampoo that protects your hair from harsh weather elements. TRESemm√© Climate Control shampoo and conditioner is very great for this season as it creates a barrier between your hair and the weather elements and also hydrates and strengthens your hair.

Lay of the heat

  • Avoid excessive use of hair dryers during winter months. Blow drying your already brittle and dry hair will only make them worse
  • If you have to attend a party and need to dry or style your hair, try the cool setting of your dryer. There is a reason why it‚Äôs there! Your hair might take longer to dry but the shine in your hair will be well worth it
  • Air dry your hair as far as possible to avoid the harshness of the ¬†¬†¬†dryer

Protect and cover your hair

  • Whenever you are stepping out in the cold, keep your head covered, especially your crown
  • If you’re using a knitted cap to cover your head, wear a silk scarf underneath. This will provide a protective barrier from your hat and an extra layer against harsh textures and elements
  • Use hats with a satin or silk lining, as wool, cotton and other fibers not only absorb moisture but also rub on the hair strands, which can be damaging. Hoods are also a great option

winter-woman-hats

Use friendly hair gear

  • A common way to secure hair when stepping outside is wearing hair pins
  • Secure your hair with bobby pins or elastic bands that do not contain metal components, as these pieces can cause breakage when they’re removed because hair becomes tangled or wrapped around the metal
  • Opt for elastic bands wrapped only in fabric or small clear elastic bands which are perfect for the ends of a braid
