Review: Umberto Beverly Hills Hair Products

*Disclosure: I received these products to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.

I have insanely poorly behaved hair. It doesn't want to be straight, it doesn't want to be curly. It likes to not hold on to hair clips and headbands.  I've got an entire cupboard full of products that I've tried in an attempt to control my hair, all to no avail.

So when I got two new products from Umberto to review, I was skeptical.  To add in to my hair's poor behavior, we've entered the dark, drizzly season here in Seattle, so my hair is constantly getting wet and frizzy.  But from the first day that I used the Umberto Blow Dry Lotion, my hair has been under control! I love this lotion!  Here's a bit about it, from a press release that I received:

 A lightweight cream that smoothes and shines without weighing hair down.  Helps protect against heat damage and locks in style.  Formulated with the natural ingredients to revitalize dry, damaged hair.
I am not sure if this lotion really does cut down drying time, as it claims. But that's mostly because I go into a bit of a boredom coma when I'm drying my hair and I never really pay attention to how long it takes.  But it definitely leaves my hair looking smooth and shiny, as advertised! I really am very, very pleased with this blow dry lotion. 

The other product that I tried is the Regular Hold Hairspray. Here's a bit about that product:

 Professional quality unscented hairspray.  A working spray for when you want to shape and lightly hold, yet still get some movement.  Smoothes frizz and maintains style without making hair look too stiff.
This is a really nice hairspray. It has reliably held my hairstyle in place all day, despite the aforementioned drizzly weather.  And it's not crunchy, so my hair still looks nice while it's being held in place.

These products and many others from the Umberto Beverly Hills line of haircare products are available now at Target! Happy hairstyling!
