The most important thing for me when it comes to hair care is the smell. I know that is sooo bad of me. I know I should be looking for products that add moisture, shine and strength to my hair, which I do, but the deciding factor for me is ALWAYS smell.
And that's not the only thing Percy and Reed have got right here.
Having great smelling hair just improves everything about my day. A slight wind and a whiff of this stuff really brightens my mood. In fact, I will pretty much sit at my desk at work with a Mistache for most of this day sniffing away. Weird habits aside, here's why I love Percy and Reed haircare.
First off, their packaging is SO cute, but still so practical. Some brands like to make their packaging seem different to the point where you get frustrated with the wasted product, it being hard to use or its not the best shape for storage. I'm looking at you, Toni & Guy.
Secondly, their smell is the same across their range of products. And the smell is just divine. I'm not even sure how you'd describe it. It's not quite floral, but it is sweet. Like a grown up candy flavour. Marshmallow springs to mind...
The products themselves are just amazing. Believe it or not, I've acquired each of these in magazine freebies. I KNOW! Massive sample sizes that really will last a long time. I'll talk you through my first love, the finishing polish. Having quite wavy, fly away hair, this finishing polish is brilliant for me. A little bit warmed up between my palms and smoothed over my frizz makes me go from Ugly Betty to Kate Middleton in no time. (Well, not quite, but you get what I mean). This does a great job smoothing, adding shine and even softness to the hair.
The Wonder Balm is quite similar to the finishing polish in that you can use it at the end of your style to calm, but I like to use in damp hair and blow dried. I feel it smooths out the hair, as well as adding softness and bounciness.
The No Oil Oil is perfect for someone like me, who has quite fine, fly away hair. This does the same as you'd expect from an oil. It adds glossiness and shine without weighing the hair down. All with the amazing smell of course.
This has made me want to try out the rest of the Percy & Reed range, with their dry shampoo next in my sights.
Have you tried any Percy & Reed stuff? What do you think of it?
