It's A 10 Miracle Leave-In Lite Review
Another day, a new hair product to try!
I received this one in my March 2014 New Beauty Test Tube.
How To Use: Spritz generously into damp, towel-dried hair. To help the product fully sink into strands, run a wide-toothed comb through hair until it’s totally detangled. Style as usual.
How It Works: A bevy of natural extracts works to moisturize, pump up the volume, rebuild, and protect hair from heat and environmental damage. Some star players to highlight: marshmallow root extract, which adds major lift and body while hydrating the hair shaft and scalp; acai berry, which battles breakage and cranks up shine, and hydrolyzed silk and rice proteins, which work to fortify strands and repair existing damage.
Initial Impressions: I definitely went overboard the first time I used this, because my hair was so greasy. But it smelled good, and I didn't feel like I was coating my hair. The second time I used just enough, and my hair felt really good, at least initially. Throughout the day, it didn't do much for my hair at all- it still got tangled.
Final Impressions: I've had the original used on my hair in hair salons before, and I always thought about purchasing it but didn't. The lite seems to do the same things for my hair that the original does. And it makes brushing my hair right after a shower really easy (and in combination with my Wet Brush, it's like cutting through butter), but once my hair is dry, it's like I didn't do anything at all. Yeah, my hair is a little shinier, and the damage to the ends is a little less noticeable, but my hair tangles just as easily as if I hadn't done anything at all. So I'd still need to use something on my hair to combat that, in addition to using this product. And because my hair is so fine and long, it gets too weighed down if I do that. I won't be purchasing this product, but I can see why so many people like it and call it a miracle product, and if my hair could handle a bunch of different products, this would be one I'd buy a thousand times over.
