Review and Giveaway: Wella Professional Care and Styling

Wella Professional's new line of care and styling products make choosing the best products for your hair simple and easy. I had the chance to spend an afternoon with James Cornwell, Celebrity Stylist and Fashion Director at PR at Partners in D.C. who took my hair from flat to fab with Wella's new products and color treatment.

Wella Professional Care
The shampoos and conditioners come in four categories: Brilliance, designed for color treated hair; Enrich, designed for dry and damaged hair; Balance for scalp care, and Age Restore for mature hair. (Note: Age Restore is perfect for those with long locks. The ends of your hair are much older than the roots!)  I used the Brilliance shampoo and the Enrich conditioning mask. First, the shampoo has the best scent bar none of any shampoo I've tested in years. It left my bathroom, heck the whole upstairs of the house smelling divine. More importantly, my hair was shiny and clean and not stripped or dry afterwards. The Enrich hair mask is thick and creamy. On sunny days, I leave this in my ends and twist my hair in a bun for a super conditioning treatment. The Wella hair care products are available in salons and are super reasonably priced for salon-quality (under $20 for a large bottle).

Wella Professional Styling
Since I'm concerned about damage from hair dryers and flat irons, I asked to try a protection spray. The Thermal Heat Protection Spray is the first thing I put on my hair after the shower. Not only does it make for an easy comb out, it protects my hair from heat styling. With summer fast approaching I also wanted to address frizz, so I'm using the Mirror Polish, which is a shine spray that holds down my crazy frizz too. Both are a good fit for summer, and make summer styling a cinch. James recommends the Thermal Heat Protection Spray first, then a rough dry, followed by the Mirror Polish and a round brush finish.

James used the revamped Koleston Perfect permanent color and the ammonia-free Demi-Permanent for my low lights. Both have worn well over the last month and I've only recently started to see the Demi color fade. I was especially impressed with shine and richness in my color. For those redheads out there: Koleston's reds last 15% longer than before.

We have a week's worth of Wella shampoos and conditioners to giveaway. If you'd like to try Wella, leave us a comment below and send your address to jsggiveaway@gmail.com. We'll pick two winners this week.

This review was based on a complimentary service.

I have trouble finding hair products that work for me. I have a sensitive scalp and very thin hair. So I switch shampoos/conditioners very often. It would be nice to finally find a product that works for me! :) I'd love to try Wella for myself!!

Wella is a well established and highly regarded brand in Germany. I lived there for many years, and I am happy Wella's products are made available to American consumers.

it'd be great to try this product! :) I can never find product that works well with my hair type. Not to mention, I hear these smell great. Not only can you look sleek and tailored but you smell just as great? Sweet!

Love Wella products. Used them many, many years ago in the early 70's. I still remember their scent , it was fresh and clean. I'm glad to see Wella products in the forefront again. Would love to start using Wella products again. Thank for giving this offer to win.

I have thick, curly, dry, frizzy hair prone to split ends. I would love to try Magic on my hair but guess a good hair product like Wella might do the trick!

I would really love to give Wella a try. I have heard about the brand before (I think it's been around for awhile) but haven't tried it yet. Mostly because I don't remember seeing it in the stores. I think it's a British brand—maybe that's why it hasn't been widely available. I'd be most interested in the Restore Collection—I just have to decide weather I'd give it to my aging Aunt or use it on my long hair!

Donna said...

Wow, I would really Love to try this product!! My hair is flat and dull and could use some really good products! Thanks!

Caprice said...
