I spend a fortune on my hair! This can be either a couple of hours in the hairdressers having it coloured, buying new styling and conditioning products or just a plain old cut! I am always up for trying out new products in the hope that I will have perfect hair one day!
As part of my Christmas present from my in laws I was given a whole range of the Tigi Bed Head products. This was a great prezzie I thought! Great in the sense I had not tried many of these products before and the packaging of the goodies looked groovy but more to the point I got something that would be of use!! Presents from my in-laws had always usually been the ones that look their best whilst still wrapped!
Anyways, one of the products was called Dumb Blonde. At first I though my mother in law was trying to be funny with this one with me being blonde. Then I realised that this product was described as a reconstructor for after highlights, damaged or chemically treated hair. I then realised that she had actually taken some care about choosing this particular product! - bless! I have my hair highlighted every few months and have been known to complain from time to time about how dry my hair gets.
I first started to use this product in April as I was making sure that I was using up all my opened products before embarking upon all these new goodies I’d been given! Sounds sensible I know but my hubby did count 22 open products in the bathroom one day! Oops!
---So what is this Dumb Blonde stuff?---
Well as I mentioned earlier this is described as a “reconstructor”. In other words it’s conditioner to you and me. It comes in a plastic tube which has a sort of hologram effect on the outside and looks quite good. The tube holds 150ml of conditioner.
---Who would use this product?
This stuff is suitable for hair types that need a little TLC – coloured, damaged and chemically treated hair. Now I bet you all thought that this would just be used by those with blonde locks!! If you thought that then you were wrong. This product can be used by Racey Redheads and Buxom Brunettes as described on the packaging!
---What is this conditioner like?
Well to be honest it was a bit scary looking to begin with. It is bright yellow in colour which you are able to see in the tube and has a very thick consistency. At first I actually thought this product was purely for blondes and thought the colour had something to do with this! How DUMB of me!
This conditioner looks and has the consistency of thick custard! Don’t let this put you off though. Once you smell this stuff all thoughts of custard disappear as it smells nothing like it! This has a very pleasant citrus smell.
---How to use
Well there are a couple of ways of using this stuff – both with equally good results.
Firstly you can use this as a hair mask once a week. After you have washed your hair squeeze out a couple of 10p size blobs – well depending on your hair length of course - and massage into your hair then leave for about 10 minutes before rinsing off. Alternatively you can use this in the same way you would with any other conditioner and use each time after washing for 1 or 2 minutes before rinsing. I prefer to use it this way as it's less time!.
When you first use this you will soon realise why the tube is squeezable! As the conditioner is so thick you have to really squeeze the desired amount out which gets harder to do as you reach the end of the tube as I am realising just now!
Once you have some conditioner in the palm of your hand its best to rub this with your other palm so that all your finger tips are coated – then apply to your wet hair. I find this works best rather than sticking one big thick blob in the one place!
This coats your hair perfectly and without feeling heavy and when it comes to rinsing out the conditioner your hair is left silky smooth and smells citrus fresh! Your bathroom will also smell nice for a while too! This conditioner contains wheat, soy, keratin and Pro Vitamin B5 which are all responsible for that silky smooth feeling your hair has after use!
---Where to buy and how many pennies?
The Tigi Bed Head range can be purchased from any professional hair salon – and in particular Tony & Guy salons. So if you trying to hunt this stuff down in Superdrug or Boots the chances are that you will not find it there.
The recommended retail price for a 150ml tube is £12.20 which i think is quite expensive although you can find this cheaper is you search the net.
Why not log onto WWW.Tigihaircare.com. This will show you all the Tigi Bedhead products available in the range. You also have the option to receive a monthly newsletter about the Tigi products just by registering your email address.
I love this product and in view of this I would give this product 4 Ciao stars. Loses one star in price as I feel it is a bit on the expensive side. My tube is nearly empty but I have been using it for 3 months now.
