Umberto Giannini 'Backcomb in Bottle' is a product that caught my eye a few months ago. I read loads of reviews in magazines and had to get it! I picked it up while boots were doing a 3 for 2 offer on hair products. I also picked up 'Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Ditch The Dirt Volume Shampoo' and 'Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Grunge Glamour Tousled Salt Spray' each product was about €8 but with the 3 for 2 it worked out much cheaper. All products have amazing packaging which I adore. They look very pretty in my bedroom and Bathroom!
First up is Umberto Giannini 'Backcomb in Bottle'. There is many mixed reviews on Blogs about this product, however, I have to say I LOVE this product. After many trials and errors I have found the best way to use this product for me is give it a good shake, turn your head upside down, spray , and then rub in quickly with your hands! It gives my hair amazing texture and 'poofs' it up. I'm not sure that's it's as good as backcombing but I love the effect of it. A quick blast of hairspray will make it last for the day. I will definitely buy this again!
Next I bought 'Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Grunge Glamour Tousled Salt Spray'. I have a body wave in my hair at the moment to give it a bit of volume. My ridiculously straight hair however is nearly back straight but when I spray this on my hair I do get some waves. When the product ran out I simply filled it with salt and water and got the same results! As a result I will not be repurchasing and would recommend for you to try salt water in a spray bottle before you purchase this!
Lastly I picked up 'Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Ditch The Dirt Volume Shampoo'. I had such high hopes for this shampoo and unfortunately it did nothing for my hair at all! (Well it made it have a horrible texture but volume wise it did NOTHING!) It's such a shame as I really really wanted to love this shampoo!
The reviews for all these products differ greatly to each person reviewing them. Some people love them others hate them. What I would recommend is that you buy travel sizes of these products (which are much cheaper) to begin with and if you do like the product buy the full size. I think at €8 it's a lot of money for a full size bottle that you might not like!
