Ladies (and gents) who aren’t shy to bleach and colouring, really ought to read on here because I’ve stumble across a genius formula from TIGi Bedhead.
I religiously dye my hair every 8-10 weeks or so, I alternate between a full head, and half a head of bleach and colour foils, so that added to heat styling, and just general day to day brushing can mean my hair is prone to breaking and splitting.
Usually I use products aimed at dry/damaged hair in order to put a bit of much needed moisture back into my locks. However this time I decided to try something more for adding strength and protein into the hair to see if I could get a better overall lasting result. I did a bit of research and found that TIGI Bedhead had a range called Elasticate which was aimed at weak, breakable hair and was supposed to help strengthen hair with the added help of elastin and protein. It also aims to improve texture, manageability and adds shine….check, check and check!
I ordered mine from a website called AllBeauty.com, which if you haven’t already popped over there then I highly recommend as it’s a great place to grab a bargain, if you’re into that sort of thing.
The shampoo is 250ml, while the conditioner is 200ml, however surprisingly It’s the shampoo which I seem to be running out of quicker this time. The duo work really well together, with the shampoo thoroughly cleansing and the conditioner adding a bit of much needed shine.
For the first few washes I found that my hair didn’t feel as soft as it might have done, had I used one of my normal brands for adding moisture. It was still really manageable and nice and shiny, though but there was something missing. So I tried to mix and match and use just the shampoo from this range, and a bit of a heavier conditioner, but thats when I definitely noticed a decline in the strength and manageability of my hair.
So I switched back to using both the shampoo and conditioner from this range – a few washes in and my hair was back on track, and feeling a bit more healthy again. The ‘softness’ you might get from other brands is replaced with a texturising element, which isn’t a bad thing, as it does give a good amount of volume, and the hair is still soft to the touch but just in a different way, which may take a bit of getting used to.
I really love this range from TIGI, and if you suffer with breakage and weak hair then I couldn’t recommend it more. I’ve noticed much less fall out from brushing and washing, and even my hairdresser has commented on how healthy my hair has been looking so thumbs up all round from me.
Also, just a small disclaimer, beware when travelling with these products as the shape of them can often be misconstrued as other items…just sayin’!!
