I have to be honest and say that my hair has been neglected recently! I used to be so diligent about looking after my hair and testing out new haircare products but even though my hair is suffering, I haven't been treating it as I should. Thankfully I received a lovely winter haircare set from the lovely people at Andrew Collinge to help my hair get through the last part of winter!
*Andrew Collinge Finishing Gel Serum Definer (£10, 100ml)
I'm never that kind of girl who is into gel haircare products as I think they work much better on short hair rather than my waist length hair but I wanted to give this a go. It is a clear, very thick gel that is really quite sticky so I distribute a very small amount between my fingers and lightly smooth over the frizzer areas of my hair, which on me are my mid-lengths. I find it does help to reduce frizz and smooth flyaways which is fantastic although it's not something I'd use all of the time but it's worth trying out, especially if you have short hair or lots of layers. Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5.
*Andrew Collinge Firm Hold Hairspray (£5.50, 100ml)
I'm not a massive fan of hairspray, I just try not to annoy the beast (aka. my hair) but I do like hairspray when my hair is tied up and it is looking frizzy as a minimal spray of hairspray on my brush while I'm tying my hair up can smooth out and flatten frizz. I wouldn't personally say that it's a firm hold, not on my long hair anyway but that's a good thing as I only need light/medium hold. It has UV protection which is fantastic and the mini size is great for travelling. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5.
*Andrew Collinge Argan Oil (£15, 115ml)
I love hair oils as my hair is colour treated, dry and frizzy and I find that most hair oils leave my hair smooth, super soft and shiny and this one is no different. It has a handy pump dispenser which makes it less messy to use and it's easy to dispense a tiny amount. I use hair oils on my wet or damp hair and leave it to dry naturally overnight and in the morning my hair is always soft, smooth and detangled. If you have dry hair or if your hair is suffering with the chilly winter days then check out this hair oil. Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
*Andrew Collinge Hair Moisturiser (£8, 150ml)
Now onto my favourite product of the four I was sent and it's something I haven't tried or heard of before! It's a hair moisturiser in an almost aerosol spray container which is so unique (to me anyway) and it's so convenient, quick and easy to use. I've been using it on the mid-lengths and ends of my hair when it is wet/damp and it leaves my hair smooth, slightly shiner (but not in a greasy way), soft and it helps to detangle. Out of all of the products in this post, I'd definitely recommend this one the most! Overall rating: ★★★★★, 5/5.
