Umberto Giannini Colour Ultra Violet blonde spray

What a mouthful of a title…

I was told over the weekend that I was due back at work this week, and while I am excited to finally get back to some normality and get back to working again, I am slightly disappointed that I won’t be first in line for a haircut once the doors all reopen next week!

I have read a lot of reviews about this company and they are all glowing. Umberto Giannini are a vegan hair care brand that have a range of hair colouring products and general hair care. One of the most popular products is the original curl hair care products, specially designed to enhance and look after curly locks. I usually have really curly hair, so will definitely be grabbing some of this for future use!

I do not know when I will next be able to get into a salon, but chances are it will be a little while longer! So rather than try and dye my hair again, I thought I would try this lightening spray. I have tried a few in the past and found that they mostly just maintained the colour of my coloured hair, but didn’t do anything to lighten it as it grew out. But this stuff claims to be able to lighten hair using 97% natural products….so I have started using it.

For starters, this stuff smells AMAZING. You spray it onto damp hair and then style as necessary. Now I do not know if this has any sort of heat protection within it, so to be on the safe side I used my usual. Now it did spray on initially with a slight chemical smell to it, but nothing too harsh or unpleasant. But once styled, my hair smells like perfume! You can really smell the lavender and chamomile, so make of that what you will. I personally love it and it is a very welcome change to having my hair smelling of burning as it usually does with my usual products and styling. It also doubles as leave in conditioner so my hair feels a lot softer than it usually does.

So this is the colour of my hair after the first use. Now I know to be patient, and that it will probably take a few uses before I should start to see any changes. Now I do not wash my hair everyday – On average I suppose I wash it maybe twice a week but this is dependant on how much exercise I’ve been doing. The product doesn’t say how often you should use it (previous ones I have used have said to not use more than three times a week) so I assume that it must be safe to use on a regular basis. I imagine that it will probably take me a month or so before I can expect to see any real changes….so I shall have to keep you updated!

Overall: As a leave in conditioner, this stuff is great and my hair feels so much softer and healthier than it normally did. As to whether or not it will actually brighten my hair colour, that remains to be seen. I shall check back in in a few weeks and let you know!
