Hello everyone! Today I'm reviewing a Volumizing Leave-In Conditioner from Bed Head's Superstar line. The product claims to "Pump up your hair! Conditions, detangles, adds volume and gives light hold." I've gotta say that this is pretty good stuff! I agree with all the claims. For those who might be thrown off by the "gives light hold" part--it's not like how a hairspray gives hold, it's more like it just keeps the volume in your hair without your hair feeling all full of product. The scent is also DELICIOUS! Totally sweet and bubblegumish without being obnoxious.
On a completely unrelated note, I severely dislike the way people are trying to phase out putting commas before and (, and) like this label did. This is the way I was taught, and I just think it looks weird and incorrect. Anyone else notice it? Does it bug you as much as it bugs me? Share with me.
Back to the review! The main ingredients are Water, Polyquaternium-11, Amodimethicone, Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol, Polyquaternium-32, Quaternium-91, etc. Polyquaternium-11 gives a light hold, adds shine, and it also has anti-bacterial properties. All the quats are basically the same, with slight differences in each one. They are all very light and pose no danger to your hair. Amodimethicone is a silicone derivative that has good conditioning properties. It'll leave your hair feeling soft and can help tame frizzies as well. Hydrolyzed Vegetable Protein PG-Propyl Silanetriol (long enough?) is similar to Hydorlyzed Wheat Protein in that it has been turned partly into water by means of hydrolysis, and it's used to form a film on your hair to make it feel stronger and thicker.
I'd suggest this product to anyone looking for a light product to give them volume, fine haired gals would surely benefit from this. Pair the leave-in with the Superstar Blow-Dry Lotion (a personal fave of mine) and you'll have a ton of body without any heavy bulid up other products might give... more on that soon.
Bed Head Superstar Volumizing Leave-In Conditioner comes in a 200 ml / 6.76 fl. oz bottle, and retails for around $16-$18. There's plenty more to come, so keep reading and take care of your hair! ♥ ♥ ♥
