I've been a bit lazy in getting round to review it! Anyway the other day I picked up the Tousled Salt Spray as well just because i've ALWAYS wanted gorgeous beach wavy Mila Kunis in Forgetting Sarah Marshall hair (as well as a holiday in Hawaii, that'd be nice wouldn't it) So I thought i'd pop the two together as actually most days i've been using both products together.
Now I have pretty damaged hair. Okay, really damaged hair. I can't even begin to count how many bottles of Aussie 3 Minute Miracle i've gone through. It's probably over 50. Okay not that much but coming up to 10 in the last half a year at least, dreadful behaviour! My poor poor purple hair is crying out for some love and tlc. However I can't have love and tlc and rockstar locks - or so I thought..
I'm currently on a haircare binge, trying to find the best products that suit my hair. We already know I love Batiste for added volume and density but when I saw this simply gorgeous range on the shelf and what it did to Fleur's hair with just a few sprays I knew I just had to give it a go.
So I have a shower, wash my hair and then when I get out I spray my wet hair around 40-50 times with the salt spray. Now this is a bit cheeky but when I was in Boots reading about the Giannini range it'd been placed next to the Lee Stafford range. I do use a couple of products from that range but it's so shamelessly true that the Giannini range is just glamourous and gorgeous to look at I couldn't help but shun Lee's pink tacky packaging. (Sad but true! Also i dIsliKe tHat StUpId FoNt thInG hE dOeS...) Anyway I saw on the back of his salt spray it said spray around 50 times after washing. So I nicked that idea and put it into action ;)!
I usually then leave my hair to dry naturally for about 45 minutes, and I don't usually brush my hair either. Then I set to it with the hairdryer on a low heat, with blasts of cold air. I pull the brush firmly but gently through my hair so it's all soft. I finish my hair by blowdrying it upside down.
Then while my hair is still upside down I spray on some Backcomb in a Bottle. Use a gentle hand though, it can get a bit tacky on the back of your neck which is horribly annoying. Then gently i tousle my hair at the roots while consistantly spraying the spray in. It doesn't leave any kind of residue (only on your skin if you spray it there which is a bit odd) and it doesn't feel heavy or anything upon application. The combination of the two products works amazingly, leaving me with rockstar tousled locks with volume that's not damaging my hair by backcombing. I've been taking some photobooth photos as i've had both products for at least three ish months and I use one of them every day at least if not both. So here are some results! (Apologies if you've seen a few of these before...)
