Percy & Reed Hair Care

So a lot of you will know that the Percy and Reed Hair Care Range was available as a Free Gift with last months Glamour magazine. Now I know this is a late review, however the products are now available to purchase form ASOS, which is fab!

Now the range is created by Paul Percival and Adam Reed of the glamorous salon Percy and Reed. With Glamour, you were able to try out the Splendidly Silky Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner, the Totally TLC Hydrating Mask and the Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish. For just £2.00 each I purchase four lots of the magazine to give the range.

Totally TLC Hydrating Mask

Now this is lovely. Not only does it smell great, it leaves your hair silky soft. Just follow the instructions and leave on your hair for around 5mins – the instructions recommend that you wrap your hair up in a warm towel once it’s on giving the product a warmer temperature to work it’s wonder on your hair.

Now I have very dry, frizzy hair so this is a definite treat for me.
Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish

Like I said above my hair is amazingly frizzy and dry so I always have a lot of products on hand to help with this. I tend to use TiGi Bed Head Control Freak Serum followed by the TiGI Bed Head After Party – they’re not the cheapest thing out there but it works for me. Now I like this, it smoothes out the ends of my hair after I’ve straightened it without leaving a greasy feel and that horrible sort of finish where you can feel the product there. Lovely product thats become a regular fixture instead of my After Party.
Splendidly Silky Moisturising Shampoo and Conditioner

Now I was looking forward to trying these out, but I have to say I was disappointed. These didn’t do anything for my hair. If anything it was drier than after using my usual shampoo and the shampoo itself seem to irritate my scalp and I had to stop using it. I do have a sensitive scalp but it’s usually flared up by products and hair dye – not usually shampoo! It was that bad that I had to start using Neutrogena’s T/Gel for sensitive scalps to calm it down. The conditioner is nice but nothing amazing if your hair is very dry, given that it retails for £16.00. Now as these were just free with Glamour I don’t know if I just got a bad one. Anyway I was disappointed and it was such a shame as I love the mask and finishing polish.

Sad to hear about the Shampoo & Conditioner! I love the packaging of these products though! xx

I have the shampoo and conditioner. I try the conditioner first, as it is the product I got with my subscription copy and really liked it, so decided to grab the shampoo. That was the disappointment, it makes my hair greasy :(

@A Lauren to Herself - the shampoo and conditioner were definitely a dispointment.

@Paperbacks and Postcards - totally agree the packaging is lovely

@Ms Bubu - my hairs to dry to begin with for anything to make it greasy ;) but it still wasn't right

Those hair care products have great packaging. However, you shouldn't read a book by its cover. It is important to find the right hair care shampoo for your hair, as everyone has different hair.
