When you google a little on cruelty free/ vegan hair care, Giovanni is one of the brands that quickly comes up.
I used one of their shampoos already -review coming shortly – and quite liked it. In addition, Giovanni’s hair care products are affordable. About the heat protectant spray: it’s from Giovanni’s Ultra-Sleek line. They have two different kinds -one for blow drying and one for flat-iron styling. Since I let my hair air dry I only used the flat-iron one. I’m not a huge fan of the smell, it’s a little artificial for my taste. I apply it to my dry hair and brush through to distribute it well. It doesn’t leave my hair feeling sticky yet I feel like it does leave a small residue in the hair. Other than that it does the job and protects my hair from heat. It claims to be moisturising and detangling, but I did not really feel much of that. Which I don’t mind too much. It seems like these days a heat protectant can’t be just a heat protectant anymore. Instead it has to be a multifunctional 5 in 1 product. 😉
Overall the spray is getting the job done but it didn’t win my heart over.
- paraben free
- solid heat protectant spray
- artificial smell
- I didn’t feel the moisturising/ detangling effect
It’s a solid product but I’m not loving it,
