Speed Review: TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray
When I watch YouTube videos, my most recurring emotion is hair envy. I wish I had good hair. You can get away with a lot when you have good hair. Alas, I have fine hair which seems to have a mind of its own, despite the fact that I follow a good hair care regime. As such, any product which claims to boost volume or thickness appeals to me so it's no surprise that when I was sent TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray, I had high hopes.
TIGI claim that Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray creates long-lasting volume, body & lift, with light hold & natural feeling, without stickiness. It is aimed at those with fine to medium hair texture, of any length.
On first impressions, I liked the packaging. The bright spray canister and fun name is in keeping with the young, party-loving target market of the brand. I found the directions a little difficult to follow and was initially unclear as to whether the product should be applied to wet or dry hair (it is heat activated and should be applied to wet hair prior to blow drying). I was also unsure whether the product offers any heat protecting benefits.
That said, I found the packaging functional for use and was pleased to note that it delivered a fine spray. It was quite a liquid spray but I found the lightweight "lotion" easy to distribute through my hair. I applied a generous amount in the hope that it would really volumize my fine hair & create the impression of thickness.
TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray has a fresh, fruity fragrance which reminded me of sweets but which I didn't find sickly. When it lingered delicately in my hair, it smelt fresh and clean.
Following use, my hair looked sleek and shiny. Whilst my fine hair wasn't weighed down, I wasn't able to notice any thickening results. One positive was that I wasn't able to detect any sticky or uncomfortable residue in my hair but nor did I notice the hold which the company states that this provides.
Perhaps the thickening benefits are more apparent when TIGI Bed Head Superstar Queen For A Day Thickening Spray is used in conjunction with other products from the range but at £14.95 for an admittedly generously sized 311ml, I'd like to see this product being a bit more results driven on its own.
