Schwarzkopf OSiS+ Styling Review

Excuse the messy bedroom in the background but I just had to share these photos of my hair having used my new Nicky Clarke heated rollers and products from the Schwarzkopf OSiS+ styling products. Actually IN LOVE with the results.




I have incredibly fine hair which has, over the years been shaved, undercut, backcombed, dyed, bleached, straightened, curled and overloaded with products. Now it's just below my shoulders - with a thick full fringe. I don't know if it's case of the grass is always greener, but when Immediate PR got in touch to see if I'd like to try some volumising products, I leapt at the chance. Big hair over here, please!

The Dust It is probably the product I would recommend the most. It's adds texture to clean hair and makes mine much more malleable. Dusting it over the curls having used the rollers, it made them looser, thicker-looking, and more natural, which is exactly the look I was going for. I'm not sure whether I'd use rollers every day as it took a good half an hour or so to set them properly, then I left them in over an hour while I pottered about the house until they were fully cool, but with a spritz of the Hairbody they stayed in a for a good few hours. As someone who has hair which is dry at the ends from all the bleach and dye, the Sparkler spray is great for perking up dull ends. Though word of warning - too much and you're liable to make your mop look greasy.

Give me an occasion, perhaps a dinner dance, or a cocktail party (not hankering after a date invite AT ALL, obvz) and I'll definitely be recreating this.

Oh yeah and I've got Pinterest now - follow meee!

  13. your hair looks lovely like that. I've always had troublesome hair but recently it's gone curly of it's own accord.
