Trevor Sorbie: Salon Approved Straight Collection
I’ve become somewhat of a shampoo snob vowing to stay devoted to sulphate-free shampoos after parting with my hair extensions last month. But by some strange coincidence, suddenly all these shampoos and conditioners which aren’t sulphate-free have emerged, tugging at my arm and I feel kind of dirty about going back to the dark side.
One name responsible for luring me back is Trevor Sorbie’s Straight range which has been put together in one helpful collection. It is specifically for those who are fond of maintaining poker straight hair (like me) and comprises of a 250ml shampoo, a 250ml conditioner, a 50ml Styling Smoothing Serum and a 50ml Straight Protect & Shine spray. In the name of research, I have been using all of these products to see whether it’s beneficial at all.
The shampoo and conditioner has a lightweight formula that apparently tames flyaways and helps to remove kinks and waves, the serum is for use on wet hair before blow-drying and the Straight Protect & Shine spray is designed to guard the hair against temperature of up to 230°C from styling tools.
Truth be told, I’m a little bit in love with this range. I can’t say I have noticed anything with the shampoo and conditioner claiming to take out any kinks and waves in my hair but they have left it feeling like I’ve had it washed and styled in a salon. Simple things such as brushing and blow-drying alone has made the arduous task of styling my hair easier and quicker. The heat spray is wonderfully lightweight and gentle without building up congestion on my tresses, which is a first for me as normally heat protecting sprays leave my hair feeling icky.
At this point I need to give the Styling Natural Hold Hairspray a special mention even though it’s not part of this collection. It is, however, the icing on the cake – invisible to touch, couldn’t even tell it’s there (you’ve no idea how elated this makes me feel) and it does its job to keep my hair in place with minimal disruption.
And here’s genuinely how my hair looks after the Sorbie treatment:
…like I just walked out of a salon! Super sleek and glossy. Hnnggggh!
Having taken on board the advice Ian Carmichael gave about making good use of styling products and embracing hair spray as a layer of protection against man-made and natural humidity, the Straight range by Trevor Sorbie works in harmony for me. I will be adding the heat spray and hair spray to my list of supplies to stock up on fo’ sho’.
Trevor Sorbie’s Salon Approved Straight Collection is currently available at Boots for a bargainsome price of £15. Each product from the Straight range is available individually with prices starting at £5.29.
P.S: Happy birthday, Sheenie!
