I have awful hair, straight up. It is very fine in texture, but I have a lot of it, so when it is hot outside or remotely humid, I end up looking like I have been dragged through a hedge backwards, or have stuck my fingers in an electrical socket. Frizzy, big hair that I can do nothing with.
Umberto Giannini Super Sleek Heat Protecting Spray Review
Based on this stuff being sold as ‘anti-humidity’. I thought I would give it a try. Big mistake. Huge.
I sprayed it ‘liberally’ (as it states on the bottle) on my wet hair and combed it through, but when I tried to put a brush through it to blow dry it, it was near impossible. My hair felt sticky and stood out on the ends as I dried each section. It left my hair feeling greasy, sticky and mucky, which is totally counterproductive to the effect desired.
I don’t know what these ‘polymers that coat the hair’ are, but they felt like superglue to me. Now I will have the hassle of washing my hair all over again tomorrow as will go back to my old heat protection spray which has none of these horrible effects. I will have to keep searching for an anti-humidity product that actually protects the hair without leaving it as stiff as a board.
Overall, I would not recommend the Umberto Giannini Super Sleek Heat Protecting Spray to anyone battling fine, frizz-prone hair.
