Revlon Professional Haircare

 When I think about Revlon, makeup is the first thing that comes to mind, I was infact totally oblivious to the fact that they have an entire professional haircare range. Well, until I was kindly gifted some to try out. Whilst they do have shampoo and conditioners in the range, the three products I'm trying out are styling products. They include a mousse, a straightening balm and a leave in hair treatment.

The thing that I found quite confusing at first was that they all seemed to come under different names, such as Orofluido, Uniq One, in most of the products you won't even see the Revlon logo unless you look closely at the bottom. However, I then found out that Revlon Professional haircare is mostly sold in salons, and thus the professional ranges each have their own identity you could say (silly me!).

Orofluido Volume Mousse*

The Orofluido volume mousse promises to give you remarkable shine, volume and beauty, with a medium hold mousse. Interestingly enough, it comes with a powderful combination of argon, cyperus and linseed oils. The orofluido essence is also what gives it that amber and vanilla fragrance, although I found the scent was far more prevalent when I squirted the mousse out than afterwards, my hair still smelt so good! It also offers thermal protection so that's always a good thing.

The mousse comes in a lovely black tube, with a really handy dispenser, definitely salon worthy! As with most mousses', it needs a good shake before you squirt some out, although be careful as there were lot's of little pillows of clouds flying about, let it snow! The actual mousse itself was amongst some of the best I've tried. The formula is easily absorbed into my hair, there was no stickiness and my waves were also a lot more defined. It did reduce my frizz a bit, although I think my troublesome hair needs more in the way of a treatment (which I will be coming to shortly) to get rid of of the majority of the frizz.

Style Masters Smooth Iron Guard*

The Style Masters straightening balm claims to facilitate smoothness, whilst protecting hair from the heat of irons/dryers. On paper straightening balms sound like the solution to all my problems as I often straighten my hair with heat protectant, yet it gets damaged easily and rarely holds it's straightness. I've given straightening balms a go previously with the Body Shop Macadamia straightening balm (which is still sitting in my drawer), however I found that it weighted my hair down and it still got a few kinks in it, and so I haven't really used them since.

The Style Masters smooth iron guard comes out as a cream which I spread through my damp hair with my fingers. It's quite tricky getting the right amount when you have thick hair like mine as too little won't do the job but too much will make it all sticky. Once my hair was dried I straightened it and I did get poker straight hair! However, it felt a bit too flat to me, but by the time I woke up in the morning it was like it had absorbed it in and it looked much better. Unfortunately it didn't survive the morning commute intact, the humidity and the light rain proved a bit much and my hair did go a bit puffy and wavy again. Overall, it did help me get the straight hair I wanted but I think I'll use it when the weather is more predictable.

Uniq One All In One Hair treatment*

The Uniq One Leave in Conditioner boasts 10 real benefits to your hair, some of which include: frizz control, silkiness and smoothness, detangling and split end prevention. It makes some bold claims, but how does it fare? The treatment is a cream that comes in spray form which makes it easy to dispense through your hair, however I prefer to spray it into my hands and then rub it through my hair, concentrating on my ends, as I find it dispenses it more evenly. At first I was apprehensive about applying too much, but after several weeks of using this, I've realised that it absorbs into your hair very easily so I section my hair into two and apply five pumpfuls on either side.

I couldn't write this post and not tell you how divine it smells, the coconut scent makes me feel like I'm in my own spa. Plus with everyone raving about Coconut oil lately this is definitely worth a try! As for the leave it treatment itself my ends are looking much healthier, which I'm really happy about as they went awfully dry because for some reason I thought it was a good idea to use a drying shampoo to stop my hair looking so limp! However, this isn't an overnight change, it is quite gradual and so I will continue seeing how this fares.

The Uniq One Leave In Conditioner has also changed my opinions on leave in conditioners. After using the Aussie leave in conditioner, which amazingly smells like bubblegum but didn't do anything for my hair (apart from make it sticky), I merely saw them as novelty products. This leave in conditioner however does make my hair softer, detangles it and helps it look healthier.

I'm really glad I was able to try these salon quality items and the Orofluido Mousse and Uniq One Hair treatment are my favourites out of the bunch!

I hope you enjoyed this post?
Have you tried leave in treatments, what haircare products do you recommend?

  1. Great post! I haven't tried any of Revlon's professional haircare products yet, so this was a great read. I personally use Bumble and Bumble's hair mask and absolutely love it!

  2. I have spotted these brands before but like you I didn't look closely at the label so had no idea they were from Revlon (in all honestly had no idea they even offered haircare) but now I'm intrigued. The Uniq One All in One Treatment sounds amazing, especially the coconut scent x

  5. 100% agree with you when the name Revlon comes into mind it's automatically associated with makeup. Frankly I had no idea that they even have a hair care range. The one that caught my attention is the All In One Hair Treatment, I adore anything coconut!

    1. I guess due to it being more salon brands the advertising is more behind the scenes! Although the Uniq one treatment really does deserve to have it's own campaign, I'm sure it would be just as popular as their cosmetics :)

  8. I never heard about Revlon hair care before, but if they are sold in salons exclusively, that may be the explanation.
    My experiences with leave-in conditioners weren't that great, I found them to be silicone heavy, but without actual nourishment for my damaged ends.

    1. I think that's exactly it, hopefully we'll be seeing them sold in more stores soon :) My first experiences with the Aussie range felt like that, but this treatment is really different. It actually looks like it's absorbed in and after a few minutes I couldn't even tell whether I had applied it or not :)

  27. I thought the exact same about Revlon until I stumbled upon their haircare products at a beauty event a few months ago. I love the coconut spray, it smells so refreshing doesn't it? I might try your tip of applying it to my hands first :)
