Hello lovelies! If you’re a regular follower of the blog or my Instagram account ( 😛 ) you might be familiar with my obsession with big, voluminous hair! I prefer lift and volume even for an everyday look. Whether its blow dry or a ponytail, go high or go home is my motto! Sounds a bit wrong but you know what I mean. 😀
I had been wanting to purchase this leave in spray for sometime but I thought I’d wait for someone else to try it and review it so I could be sure about the product. Since the nozzle of my volume mousse broke off, I was desperately looking for something that would give me volume but not make the hair stiff or crunchy. I was confused between getting this or the Big Sexy Hair Spray but impulsively picked this up while grocery shopping with my mum. And am I glad that I did!
I am actually really apprehensive about the products that I buy and I expect them to have tall claims and not really live up to all of them. But I was really, if you may, “Blown away” by this.
The instructions say that you must “Flip hair upside down and spray evenly on damp hair, focusing on the roots. Dry naturally or blow dry for full-blown volume.”
I did exactly that and blow dried my hair and I was amazed at the kind of volume and texture it gave my hair. My mother isn’t really the gushing kind and doesn’t go gaga over how I look unless I really do look good. And she was enamoured by how full and bouncy my hair looked too!
What made me happy apart from the volume part is that it didn’t make my hair sticky at all. Generally any product that promises volume will make your hair just a bit sticky or maybe a little stiff because the product needs to hold the hair for maintaining volume for a long time. But this MIRACLE spray held the volume for three days straight (until I washed it off) and my hair didn’t feel icky, greasy or stiff even on the third day. I just needed a dry shampoo for my oily scalp and I tied my hair up in a pony and I was good to go. Like, WHAT?
The next time I sprayed this on my towel dried hair and let it dry naturally, it gave good volume (not as much as when I had blow dried but still great) and there was no stickiness this time either.
The product does not cause crazy build up and it didn’t make my scalp itchy or sensitive AT ALL which is a big thing because I have a very sensitive scalp which turns raw and red with some root lifting powders and products, but not with this one!
The product also claims to be a heat protectant on its own and I would most likely believe it but I use my L’oreal mythic oil nevertheless. The SA at the counter said I could iron my hair with this as well but I think that claim is a little far stretched because even though the product isn’t sticky while air drying or blow drying, products with volume and hold tend to stick to the surface of the flat iron and it may lead to breakage. Personally I do not recommend this for flat ironing but in all fairness the bottle doesn’t claim to do so. I’m just putting this down in case an SA tells you the same thing.
Overall, I really LOVE this product! It lives up to each and every claim it makes and it is affordable! What more would you want? I’m very happy with my purchase and I think I will continue to repurchase this until I get bored of volume in my hair!
The BBlunt Blown Away Volumizing Leave-in Spray retails for INR 550 and is also available in online store for a lesser price.
Until next time, lovelies, stay beautiful! :*
