Ahoy hoy, another intermittent review from me, A Maler Shade Of Beauty. But a bit of an update first, we finally, after a long time, multiple different consultants and a lot of perseverance got to the root of Avril’s illness. It turns out that she has lymes disease with a co-infection, which after reading into it in more detail makes a lot of sense and really ticks all the boxes for the symptoms she has experienced over the last number of years. As a result, Avril has started treatment, so her main blog posts might be a bit infrequent for the next little while. We know you all understand and thank you for all the thoughtful messages of support for her so far.
So bar aftershave and deodorant, the only really other constant, what you could call “beauty” product that I’ve been using religiously since being a teen is hair gel. At this stage in my life (early thirties) I have probably tried the vast majority of big brand waxes, putties and gels on the market. Some have been good, some have been bad (I’m looking at you Wella shockwaves with the big white flakey headed mess you leave). Some have also been so heavy that it would nearly take you a week to wash it out of your hair.
Now for the juicy part, the results. I have been using this product every day for the past few months (repurchased a number of times) and I have to say I am very impressed. The hold is exceptionally good and as advertised it does not flake and is non-sticky. Another plus side is it smells fantastic, very “hair salony”. The wifey is extremely happy and even commented on how good it smelled. She has had to put up with some horrible chemically smelling products over the years. Overall, I’m very happy with the product and highly recommend giving it a go. Price wise it’s quite reasonable at €4.59 and is available in all good supermarkets nationwide.
