Color WOW! Winter Haircare Heroes

Color WOW is a brand that I had heard little about until recently when I was offered the chance to try out a couple of their products. Colour WOW products are targeted at people who colour their hair and want to keep the look and condition as beautiful as possible for as long as possible. I live in Somerset in the South West of England and for those who don't know, the weather here lately has been totally awful with wind and rain throwing itself from all directions and it's sure been playing havoc with my hair so I jumped at the chance to try out some goodies that promise to give frazzled hair some TLC.
I was sent the One-minute Transformation Styling Cream (*) and the Get in Shape 2-in-1 Working Hair Spray (*) from the range in order to smooth my winter hair back to beauty.
The Get in Shape 2-in-1 Working Hair Spray* which retails at £16.50 for 150ml is a non-aerosol formula and instead has a spritzer like you would find on a body spray which is a big plus for me because I hate all the fumes you usually get with hair spray and it has a soft, pleasant scent. The formula is designed to give hair "guts" and strong hold without going dry, crispy or making coloured hair look dull. I use it mostly for my fringe which has a tendency to do whatever it wants and I've found that whilst it doesn't hold it rigid when the wind blows, it does mean that when the wind drops again it falls back into place without being messy or needing constant attention and it really does give it a soft gloss at the same time. Perfect!
The One Minute Transformation Styling Cream*, also £16.50 has given me some mixed results. When applied onto dry hair and just smoothed through I found it made my hair a little oily, maybe because it is designed to give hair an instant hydration boost throughout the day as well as giving styles extra life by replacing natural oils which are lost in chemical treatments and whilst I colour my hair, it really isn't dry. However, I've found that the trick seems to be to run a small amount through hair before blow drying to maximise the styling benefits and give a beautiful gloss with plenty of definition without becoming overly oily.

A bit of  mixed bag for me, I completely adore the hair spray and have done since first use but the styling cream isn't as much of a hit for me. I enjoy it now I've worked out how to use it, but I'm not sure I would personally pay £16.50 as it just isn't that suited to me. You can pick up the Color WOW range in Space NK, I'd like to try the Root Lifting Spray next.

What do you think of the sound of Colour WOW products. Are they something that you'd look at?
