HER Haircare Rituals: Volumising Travel Set

HER Haircare Rituals is a new haircare brand, with roots in the Veneto region of Italy.  Before I talk about the products themselves, I have to report that I discovered that this range is actually the work of John Barrowman.  Who, according to the HER website, has seen first hand what a woman's hair has to go through on a daily basis.  Being a performer gives you a unique insight into women's hair, apparently.  Part of me wants to dislike these products just because of the Barrowman association - he's one of those people who I just instantly dislike.  Overly saccarine, giant smile, all ego and terrible cheesiness.  BAH.

Anyway.  Barrowman aside, these haircare products are actually pretty good.  The Volumising Shampoo cleanses deeply and leaves the hair feeling soft, bouncy and light without drying it out.  The Volumising Conditioner is surprisingly rich and hydrating, but still has a light texture which doesn't weigh the hair down.  And the Trecento Treatment is very unusual - it has the texture of room temperature butter mixed with clay, and it hydrates the hair without coating it.  I personally prefer good old Batiste to the Volumising Powder, but it definitely does it's job, absorbing oil and adding volume at the roots.

The system as a whole is surprisingly good for a volumising range which adds hydration to the hair.  My hair has been bouncy, full and light since I started using the shampoo, conditioner and treatment, and rather impressively remains bouncy beyond the first day after a wash.

All four products are available as a mini-travel set, which is reasonably priced at £24.  The shampoo and conditioner, which are the stand out products for me, are £15 and £17 respectively for decent sized 250ml bottles.  I'm definitely investing when my mini bottles run out, Barrowman regardless.

Quick Pick: Batiste Cherry

My first encounter with Batiste was with the Tropical scent, which I absolutely hated.  I've since tried a few more and found that whilst some are nice and subtle, some are a bit too powdery, sweet and obvious (like Tropical).  Cherry is one of the latest scents and it treads the line rather well.  It's sweet and juicy - I can't say it definitely smells like cherries, but there's a definite note of berry in there - but it's not powdery or overly sickly.  And I don't find that the scent hangs around my head in an obvious cloud (looking at you again Tropical).  Plus, that retro style print is divine, and looks great in my bathroom.

Find it at Boots, where it costs £2.99 (and is currently on 3 for 2).
