Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Review

I've been a member of Influenster for a while now and this is the second campaign I have been asked to join.  Read about my first one HERE.  This time, I received complimentary products from Vidal Sassoon for testing purposes.

Vidal Sassoon Pro Series Products

I was sent samples from their Pro Series line that included shampoo and conditioner from the Moisture line and heat protection and shine spray from the repair line.  While the shampoo and conditioner were travel sized, the spray was full size and valued at $5.90 on Amazon.

I know I sound like a broken record, but since I made the sulfate free switch in my hair care products, I won't be trying the shampoo. I actually have tried the conditioner before and sadly it is not for me.  I don't feel like it did anything for my hair, much less moisturize it. My hair is like hay when it is wet and I just felt like I put a big glob of lotion in it after using this product.  In fact, I washed it off and used my regular conditioner.  It was like it was never even on my hair.

But I was quite excited to try the heat protection and shine spray though since I blow dry and curl my hair a lot and am always looking for the next best, affordable, product to keep my locks gorgeous.  I always read the instructions on products, even though they may seem self explanatory.  For instance, this product says not to use on roots.  Most likely it would cause your hair to become an oil slick and weigh it down so don't assume all sprays can be sprayed all over.  I sprayed it mid shaft to my roots, 6-8 inches away.

I liked it! It made my hair soft and smooth.  It also had a very light, clean fragrance.  Some reviews claimed they smelled alcohol but I didn't.  I shook the bottle as I would with any product so maybe that made all the difference? Now, because it has alcohol in it, this is not something I will be using all the time and I didn't fall head over heels so won't be buying once I run out.  But it is an affordable option for you to think about!

As for shine, maybe that happens with continued use, as I didn't look like I was walking down the runway with a halo around my head after one.  I liked that it didn't leave my hair frizzier nor leave any build up as that has happened with some products.....

I partially blow dry my hair and then blow dry individual sections and wrap them around a velcro roller before I apply my makeup.  When I am done my hair is full of volume and donezo and I could definitely tell that it was smoother.

Have you tried the Pro Series from Vidal Sassoon yet?

What are your thoughts?

Have a great day!
