Backcomb in a Bottle

I've seen this reviewed on a couple of blogs, so always one for a gimmic I took myself and my flat hair to the nearest boots, and with the lure of 2 for £7.50 how could I not? The idea of this is to reduce the damage of constant backcombing followed by bouts of hairspray followed by more backcombing, so it sort of incorporates the two into one bottle.

The directions on the bottle aren't really that clear, but using my noggin I assumed you style your hair as normal and then blast it with product. The first time I tried it my hair had gone really lank from straightening the day before and hadn't been washed that day (unless dry shampoo counts?!) so after spraying the Backcomb in a Bottle all over the stop of my head I was just left with a greasy looking mess.
Not wanting to give up, especially if the prize could be wonderfully huge hair, I tried again today and here are the results.... Please note the barnet has been pinned up all day so there's a reason for the poodle fluff.


The result

After combing the product out

As you can see from the pictures after brushing this out - which was actually quite easy - it does make hair appear a bit slimy, especially if you've got as much root going on as me. Howeverrrr it does pretty much do what it claims, and smells saloney.
Anyone else tried this? What vas it like fur you?

  8. I bought this a while ago and was really excited about it, but it just doesn't seem to work for me, my hair just ends up feeling really horrible and sticky, not volumised at all! It must just work differently with different hair types coz yours looks lovely!

    RE your comment on my blog. I've actually got a few Sleek palettes (I'm a bit of a Sleek-aholic!) but the Storm one is definitely my fave, the colours are gorgeous! xxx

  9. i love the idea of this product! I am always backcombing my hair, trying to get more and more volume.
    Would so love to be able to just spray and ta daaa big hair!

  10. Looks pretty good, I should give it a try!

  11. Ohhh, looks like an interesting product! I used to back comb my hair when I was around 15 but haven't bothered in years! Great review!

  12. That's good that it did what it said it would!! I've never tried it before but I never really try any hair products so that's not saying much.

  13. Thank-you for the comment my lovely,
    Haha it's such a good shirt! This product looks amazing, I should probably get it, it's looks a lot more healthier then actually back combing your hair, my ends are so ruined from doing stuff like that! xx

  14. I really want to try this! x
