Last Christmas I was fortunate enough to receive a gift set from the Tigi S Factor range…. The sceptical side of me thinks that it may have been a hint to ‘sort’ out my hair!!

- Price and Availablity -

Many moons ago I only saw TIGI hair products at various hair salons that I rarely frequented, all priced considerably higher than other brands that you could pick up in run of the mill supermarkets or chemists such as Boots etc.

However since receiving this product as a gift, I’ve been hunting around and found the following for those of you who may want to try the product:
The RRP is £13.30.

Try the following websites:
www.wantthelook.com - £9.97
www.lookfantastic.com - £11.30
www.jasonshankey.co.uk – currently having a sale and offering this at the reduced price of £7.98.

- Packaging –

As already stated, this was part of a gift set so I’m unsure as to whether or not this comes in a box when bought individually.

The bottle is an opaque, white, 250ml ‘almost’ cuboid bottle. It has a push down dispenser / plunger with a small hole at the top from which the serum is dispensed. Although the size of the hole isn’t too big, once opened the plunger can’t be re-sealed or closed which is a tad annoying if you want to take it on your travels as if it is accidentally pushed down in your toiletry bag there’s no control over how much you can waste, hence the fact that I don’t pack it whenever I go away.

- What does the packaging claim? -

The back of the container doesn’t give you a great deal of information in one language as it is translated from English in to 5 other languages.

‘A scientific blend of ingredients that:
~ smoothes the cuticle
~ protects against environmental and heat damage
~ restores moisture and shine

The sales pitch ends with the statement…..’satisfaction guaranteed’.

- My Experience –

I have very frizzy, difficult to control hair that becomes increasingly calmer and easier on the eye and to manage the less I wash it. Having tried a number of hair products to calm it down, I was looking forward to using this.

~ Smell and Appearance

I love the smell of this and it’s my favourite feature of this serum. It reminds me of marzipan….. odd I know for some of you but it really doesn’t leave my hair smelling of a cake!
It is quite runny in texture and is an off white, not quite cream coloured liquid.

~ Effectiveness

Despite the plunge dispenser, the serum does come out quite quickly and lots of it until you get the knack of very lightly pushing down the plunger. At the beginning, I wasted quite a bit of it as too much was on the palm of my hands. On the first occasion, I applied all of this on my hair which made my very dry hair look greasy which wasn’t a good look!

Although it states that this can be used on wet or dry hair, I have found it to be most effective when used on my hair after being blow dried and straightened. A tiny amount certainly does calm it down a little but it has to be said that it doesn’t restore any shine to my hair which I don’t think I’ve had since pre-teens!!

- Overall -

Now that I have worked out the small amount that is needed to calm and smooth my shoulder length frizzy hair this really is quite a welcome addition to my infrequent preening sessions. Despite the fact that it wasn’t effective when I tried it on my wet hair, pre drying, it has certainly worked more effectively than other products I have used over so many years.

Despite the high RRP of this product in comparison to other branded serums, since only a small amount is required, the 250ml bottle lasts a considerable length of time.

Although I don’t leave the house with hair that looks like something from an advert, it really does help calm the frizz and ‘mad’ look of my mop!

- Other Tigi S Factor products –

There are a wide range of hair care products available some of which I have listed below:
~ Shampoo
~ Conditioner
~ Spray Shine
~ Flat Iron Shine Spray Heat Defender
~ Seriously Straight
~ Body Boosting Plumping Spray

Love the prices but not such a big fan of their prices.

You can often pick up TIGI products at TJ Hughes stores at a lower price - worth checking if you have one near you. I love their Rockstar (??) hair serum.
