I have long hair that falls just below my shoulders. I must admit that most of the time I pull it back into a ponytail and really only style it if I am going out for the evening. My hair is quite fine and tends to be a bit fly-away so I try to address this by carefully conditioning it, but if I am not careful conditioner can weigh down my hair making it limp.
I'm not a huge heated tools freak, but I do use my hair drier regularly and occasionally my straighteners and styling wand. Because my hair is highlighted I do have to be careful otherwise this can create a big dry, frizzy fly-away mess.
A few months ago I decided to look for a styling spray. I had a couple of false starts with products that just made my hair feel crispy and then I saw a few bloggers mention Tresemme. I wasn't exactly sure which product they were referring to, but the next time I was in town I picked up the Tresemme Thermal Creations Styling Spray as it seemed to cover all bases.
The Tresemme Thermal Creations Style Creator Spray holds your style and protects your hair. You spray a few pumps into your hair whilst it is damp and then brush it through. Then you just dry and style it as normal. The spray is heat activated and protects your hair at temperatures up to 230 degrees so you can use all of your heated tools with it.
I am not fanatical about hair products at all. I don't dash out to buy the latest one (if only I could say the same for lipsticks...). But I do really like this one - it has definitely exceeded my expections! It is easy to use, smells nice, doesn't make my hair feel sticky, limp or crunchy.
It seems to help condition my hair so that it is easy to get my brush through it whilst wrestling with the hair drier. I usually dry my hair straight and I really notice the difference when I use this. It smooths my hair and makes it less fly away and it keeps my hair shiny. Some products can really dull your hair and leave a powdery residue - but not this one!
As I said earlier - too often I am in a rush and tend to pull my hair back into a ponytail. With freshly washed hair this is usually a disaster and messes up your best hair drying efforts and you end up with bumps and kinks from your hair bands. But I think the Tresemme Thermal Creations Style Creator Spray really helps with this. If I have used the spray when drying my hair then it stays smooth and holds its style even after I've tied it up. Last week I had a drinks do after work - I hastily washed and dried my hair in the morning and tied it back. When I got ready in the evening I just took my hair down and it just seemed to all fall into place. It could've been a freak good-hair day but I feel that the spray gives my hair some elasticity which prevents the frizz and fly away.
The final piece of good news is the price - it is a bargain! I've done a quick search online and the Tresemme Thermal Creations Style Creator Spray seems tricky to find now, but I have found it on offer at just £1.99 for 250ml HERE. Get it before it goes!
