As soon as my hairdresser recommends a product to me, I run out and buy it straight away. There is absolutely no messing around. Which is exactly what I did with the Revlon Uniq All in One Hair Treatment, and boy am I glad I did.
My hair is damaged, and when I say that, I mean so damaged. You know what? Years of at home bleaching and generally just taking my hair for granted has really taken its toll. Whenever I go to the hairdressers, I always ask them about the condition of my hair. Their reply is always “It’s actually in surprisingly good condition!” It’s surprising because of the sheer amount of bleach that my hair has been subject to over the years. And although they say it is in good condition, it is nothing compared to what it was like before I started dying it.
And, although I love my hair colour and wouldn’t change it for the world, I am painfully aware that I need to start taking more steps to give it some love. I’ve written a fair amount about my favourite products to keep my hair healthy already on this blog. But sometimes I feel like my hair just needs a little something extra. Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to give this spray a go.
So What Does the Treatment Do?
This is literally the hair treatment that does the most, and it comes with a lot of benefits. This product promises to:
- Repair Dry and Damaged Hair
- Add Shine and Control Frizz
- Provide Heat Protection
- Give Silkiness and Smoothness
- Provide Hair Colour Protection, with UVA and UVB Filters
- Make it Easier to Brush and Straighten the Hair
- Long-Lasting Hairstyle Hold
- Prevent Split Ends
- Add Body
So, as you can see, this treatment claims to do an awful lot! Usually, when a treatment promises to do this many things, I don’t really take it too seriously. I always feel like companies will just whack these things on the bottle without actually providing the benefits. I mean, how am I supposed to know whether it is preventing split ends, or protecting against heat?
But, if something makes my hair feel good and slightly smoother, then I’m all for it.
Does it Actually Work?
This is the million dollar question. So that I could write the most accurate review, I decided to test this treatment out under a couple of different contexts. The first being leaving my hair to dry naturally. So, I washed and conditioned my hair, put a bit of oil in it, then I spritzed it all over, then left it to dry naturally. I can’t lie, I had higher hopes for this treatment in terms of frizz control. And needless to say, I was quite disappointed when my hair began to poof out in its usual fashion.
However, I did notice that my hair was a lot easier to brush, which makes this treatment perfect for any women out there with thick hair. And, the ends of my hair didn’t feel completely like straw, which is what usually happens when I don’t blow dry it. So, there are always silver linings!
The real game changer came when I styled my hair after application. I may just be hallucinating, but the few times that I have blow dried my hair after using this product, it seems to have dried quicker? Like I said, my hair is pretty thick, so it takes about a million years to dry even with a hair dryer, but this really did seem to speed up the process. And when it is dry, Good Lord I cannot even describe to you how silky it is.
Overall I really loved this product! Although this treatment didn’t have the effect frizz controlling effect I was after, I’m not mad because of how well it performed when I was blow drying my hair. As someone who uses heat on their hair after every wash, I was definitely in need of a product that could protect my tresses while also helping to style them. Honestly, it is worth buying it just for the silkiness because God Damn! That was when I knew that this was the product for me.
