There is one part of my routine which I merely always forget to tell you about and that is styling.
As you may have noticed , I go through many different styles from sleek straight to full on bouncy curls but most days I sit with a bobble in and have it tied up out of the way due to the fact my hair , unless styled with a hot iron , is thick , dull looking and rather frizzy to say the least.
It takes me only 30 minutes to wash and dry my hair these days with the amazing new hair dryer which I am in love with '' The Ego Evolve '', it literally dries my hair in only minutes and for me , it has become my saviour in saving time.
The thing that really takes time up in my day when it comes to hair is actually the styling.
I have endless amounts of products on products but the fact of the matter is they simply leave my hair feeling hard or looking solid or sometimes even greasy like and very unlike the salon look you see advertised on the T.V.
The past week , I have been testing out a new hair product
''Color WoW One Minute Transformation Styling Cream''
Who are Color WoW?
Gail Federici, co-founder of John Frieda’s hair care company is the one behind Color WoW and worked hard to address the formula of hair products in order to fix those blonde , frizzy hair moments.
DR Joe Cincotta formulated Color WoW and Color Wow is now a complete range of new
technologies that resolve problems which come with colour-treated hair.
No more roots..ever! No brassiness, dullness or fading! No dry or dull texture!
Less money, less stress and strain on the hair, fewer salon appointments.
What is Color Wow One Minute Transformation Styling Cream for ?
Well basically it tells you in the title, no hidden agendas other than giving you that transformation of looking healthier and glossier and frizz free . The great thing about it though that it is to be applied to dry hair for instant effect.
Here's how to use it -
• Apply to dry hair by working the cream through the hands then work it through each section of the hair by then brushing it to transform damaged-looking, distressed hair into liquidy-smooth, silky hair with healthy-looking shine
• For a quick fix or restyle, apply to any unruly areas/morning bed head and blow-dry in
• A lightweight blend of humectants penetrates frizzy, brittle hair to replace natural oils lost
during chemical treatments, blow-drying and daily stress.
• Hydrate dry hair anytime, anywhere to instantly refresh style.
• Does not contain waxes or emulsifiers.

I have to admit , before using this cream , I was very sceptical because creams on my very thick hair usually tend to make my threads look very greasy and wet looking .
After a week of using it , I am now addicted .
Having very long thick hair , I had to use three pea size amounts to cover my locks but it will all depend on your own length and style as to how much you will need.
I found it so much easier to work through a section at a time , using a big round bristle brush then going over it with a hair dryer.
I was very surprised by the texture and feel of the cream but I honestly expected something sticky and heavy .
I was gob smacked when I placed the small pea sized amount onto my palm and then working through my hands, I noticed how soft and light it felt.
No sticky feeling what so ever and no oil left over on my palms which only meant one thing , no greasy looking , hard looking hair .
Working through my threads , I was amazed at the instant effect it had on my hair. My hair was smooth , silky soft and looking brighter .
The cream can be used on wet hair but I prefer the results so much more by adding it to dry hair.
My hair has been so dull lately now that there is no sunshine to give it its healthy highlighted look but since using the Transformation cream , I have been getting so many comments regarding how revitalised and healthy looking it is, especially when I have just blow dried it .
Being a styling cream, I was honestly expecting it to be stiff cream and it was not at all, the cream merely give it that sleek shine but does help keep the hairs shape better when used with a hair dryer or even hair iron or curler , instead of that harsh looking style though it achieves a natural looking finish which for me is exactly the look I am after .
All in all , I am very surprised by this product and in fact shocked by its fantastic texture and how it leaves my hair looking .
I now use this every day so to get rid of that morning bed head hair look and it takes no time at all , just by adding a small amount to my hair and brushing it through.
The scent of it is also very nice, not over powering or smelling like chemicals but subtle and calm .
Cost - £16.50 - 120ml
I have not got colour treated hair but I am going to be testing out a new Ombre Hair colour tonight (so keep an eye out for that post ) so I can see this being a huge part of my everyday routine as they say it helps coloured treated hair from being dry and keeping its colour.
This is definitely one hair cream I will recommend , especially if you colour your hair or suffer with dry, frizzy hair.
