Review: Silky silky smooth

miercuri, august 22, 2012

Imi iubesc parul. Dintodeauna am avut o relatie speciala cu el, mai ales de cand am inceput sa-l torturez cu tot felul de aparate si produse iar el a continuat sa stea cuminte pe teasta. Bine, cuminte e un termen relativ, capita mea de fan rareori ma multumeste la capitolul "asezare". But I can't complain.

I love my hair. I've alway had a special relationship with it, mostly since I've started torturing it with different hair products and tools, but he continued to stick onto my scalp. It usually stays whoever it wants, but I can't complain.

Am avut o perioada de cativa ani in care nu l-am tuns deloc in dorinta de a-l creste, iar asta s-a vazut...Arata pur si simplu ca o matura, matuit si cu varfurile despicate. Cand in sfarsit l-am tuns (gen de la jumatatea spatelui la umeri), a inceput perioada placii de par. Nu eram asa documentata pe vremea aceea si desi el a rezistat eroic, au urmat multe vizite pe la salon pentru a-l salva de moarte. Ultima oara cand am fost la salon, acum vreo 4 ani, am reusit sa capat cea mai urata tunsoare ever, inegala si ciumpavita. De atunci mi-am tot dorit par lung, dar nu am reusit sa-mi indeplinesc visul datorita suvitelor nebune ramase in urma "capodoperei". L-am tuns acasa cate un pic cate un pic, l-am tot tratat si pana pe 13 ianuarie sper sa ajunga sub sani. That's my dream. xD

I've had a period of several years in which I wanted it long and I didn't cut it at all...and the results could be seen. It looked like a broom, it lacked shininess, body, the ends were destroyed. When I finally cut it, the hair straightner period started. I wasn't so well informed and although it heroically lasted on the battlefield, I took a lot of trips to the salon to save it. Last time I've been to a salon was 4 years ago and I managed to leave with the most hideous asymmetric cut ever. Ever since I've wanted long hair but I didn't managed to fulfill my dreams cause of the shorter layers in my hair. I started cutting it little by little at home, I treated it with care and hopefully, until the 13th of January it will end up boob-lenght. That's my dream, at least.

Cam asa arata acum, e cam pana la umeri, in poza tineam capul intr-o parte. Parul meu este foarte des, cu firul gros si ondulat spre cret. Este super moale si shiny cand folosesc produse adecvate, insa e un pain in the ass cand mai dau peste vreo intelege bine cu sampoanele Garnier sau Shauma, cu uleiul ptr varfuri degradate de la Avon, mastile Kallos si...

This is how it looks now, it's shoulder-length but my head was tilted slightly. I have a lot of hair, the strands are really thick and wavy. It is usually soft and shiny if I use the right products, but it's a pain in the ass when I stumble upon a disaster product...I love Garnier or Shauma shampoos, Avon's split ends serum, Kallos's hair masks and...

Micutul asta l-am luat de pe site-ul boots ptr aproximativ 2 lire, insa mai mult ca sigur nu-l veti gasi in Romania. Daca sunteti interesate, o prietena (si bloggerita) face comenzi pe mai multe site-uri din UK si va poate ajuta. Doar anuntati-ma. :D

I purchased this little guy for 2 pounds off the boots website.  

Eu-s moarta dupa mirosul de cocos (care se simte din plin la acest spray) si asta a fost unul din principalele motive care m-au facut sa-l cumpar. Avea de asemenea si foarte multe review-uri care promiteau descurcarea mai usoara si hidratarea intensiva a parului normal sau uscat. Exact ceea ce caut eu in general!

I love love love the coconut scent (which you can def feel in this spray) and this was one of the main reasons which made me buy it. It also had a lot of reviews which promised more manageable hair and intensive moisture. Usually something I look for in beauty products.

Primele dati cand l-am folosit mi-au lasat impresia ca este o apa de ploaie placut parfumata. Dupa ce l-am folosit in mai multe combinatii, am observat ca pe parul uscat isi face cel mai bine treaba si se observa ceva rezultate.

The first times I've used it left me with the impression it's just some water with a nice scent. After using it a couple of times, I saw that on dry hair it does its job best and you can see some results.

Lasa parul foarte moale si cu un luciu superb, fara sa il faca slinos. Eu chiar aveam o mica obsesie intr-un timp: ori de cate ori treceam prin camera ma dadeam cu el si nu am vazut efecte negative. M-am spalat in continuare la 3 zile.

It leaves the hair really soft and shiny without making it slimy. I even had this little obsession of spraying it all over each time I went to my room and I didn't see any bad sides to it. I washed my hair as usual, at 3 days.

Dar l-as cumpara din nou? Probabil ca nu...Mi se pare ca face mult prea putin. Nu pot sa spun ca m-a ajutat cu descurcarea parului, de zicem ca face ceva ceva in sectorul acesta. Iar la dat stralucire se decurca foarte bine si serul Avon.

Would I buy it again? Probably not. I think it does little to nothing. I can't say it helped me with the tangles in my hair, as for moisturizing...let's say it did something. But Avon's split end serum is much better at giving shininess. 

Cam asta-i cu spray-ul. Cu siguranta il voi folosi in continuare pana se termina deoarece imi place mirosul, dar daca nu ar fi fost acest aspect, ar fi fost demult uitat pe raft.

That's about it. I'll probably use it until it ends up empty cause of the nice scent, but if it weren't for that, it would have probably ended up on the shelf a long time ago, catching dust.

Voi ce produse ptr par folositi? Ma intereseaza in special mastile, am inceput sa ma cam plictisesc de Kallos. Oh si ati incercat serul nou de la Avon?

What hair products do you use? I am mostly interested in hair masks, I am starting to get tired of Kallos. Oh and have you tried the new Avon serum?
