I ended up buying these two when all I'd gone in for was some bread and milk (and the usual beer supply for my hubby of course!).
|'Big It Up' and 'Hot Stuff'|
Think I've mentioned that my hair is really fine, so anything related to 'volume' is welcome. The 'Big It Up' Volume Boosting Spray has one of those directional pumps - I find it easier to spray the product into my hands and spread through my hair, that's just my preferred method! It does seem to give my hair (much needed) weight and texture after blow drying but I wouldn't overuse unless you like your hair to feel like it's full of product!
I do use straightening irons most days (bad I know but I can't cope without my straighteners when my hair's shorter - which it is at the moment) so I go through plenty of 'heat protection' spray. The 'Hot Stuff' Heat Defence Spray can be used with your hairdryer or straighteners. It doesn't leave my hair 'crispy' and seems to help with the 'frizzies' - which, considering the weather this past week or so can only be good!
|'Hot Stuff' - 125ml and 'Big It up' - 200ml|
The way I've been using these two is - basically - to mix them. I use the 'Big It Up' from roots to mid lengths and the 'Hot Stuff' from mid lengths to ends - more or less! My hairdresser gave me this tip and it works well for me. It means I get the volume where I need it and the ends are smoother and protected.
All in all I think these are great 'everyday' products - reasonably priced at £4.09 each and with the current offer even more so at £2.04. I'm interested in trying other Phil Smith products especially while they're on offer! I'll see what happens next time I pop into Sainsburys!
Anybody tried anything else from the Phil Smith Haircare range?
