Curly Hair with L'Oreal Paris Studio Pro*

L'Oreal Paris Studio Pro Heat It Hot and Go Heat Spray Preen Me

Hey everyone! Hope you're all well! It was my birthday on Sunday! I had a really lovely weekend, it was quite relaxed and I spent it with family and I ate so much food and cake and I'm still eating leftover cake and feeling slightly sick haha! I think I will be eating only vegetables for the next month XD


I was recently contacted by Preen.Me to review some L'Oreal Studio Pro products as part of their #WhoDoYouWantToBeToday campaign so I thought I would curl my hair and see how they compare to my usual products. I will usually do my hair super curly and then by the time I take my outfit photos I've been playing around with it for a while and the curls drop out more but this is basically how it looks straight after curling XD There's a photo on my Instagram of my hair after a few hours which is a bit less crazy than these photos haha :)




I started off by using the *Heat It Hot & Go Heat Spray and sprayed it through the lengths of my hair. Of the 3 products I used for this look I liked this one the most and I think it would be the one that I would always grab if I was going to heat my hair as I always like to protect it whereas sometimes I will skip using other products, depending on what kind of look I'm going for.
The only thing I didn't really like about the heat protecting products was that there were specific sprays/creams etc for different styles. So if you wanted a sleek and straight look or like a curly one.. which I guess is good but then it also means that you'd have a few similar products and then I end up overthinking which one would be the most suitable.. Maybe it's just me haha! But I'm usually used to a normal heat protecting serum so this kind of threw me a bit haha :)


L'Oreal Paris Boost It Volume Mousse Preen Me


Next I used the *Boost it Volume Mousse in my roots. I thought this was okay but I don't think I would keep doing this as I'm really happy with my V05 give me texture texturising spray at the moment. So personally I don't think it would beat that at least for me and for my hair. The first time I tried using this mousse I ended up putting too much and had to wash it out and start again and even then I should have used less. I had quite a nice texture to my hair however it felt producty and by the 3rd day I had to use dry shampoo and have it up which I don't usually have to do. This time round I didn't use enough mousse and so I hardly had any hold or volume at my roots which was a bit annoying.. It's probably just me though and it's trial and error :)



 I think all of the products in this collection smell really nice and they're all affordable. When I need hair products I tend to go to Superdrug, see what's on offer and what's pink and grab that haha! So I'm currently using some V05 products and I really like them. I kind of feel like they're a bit 'gentler' and you can build them up whereas I feel like the Studio Pro products would be awesome if you had some killer beehive to hold haha. But I think in moderation they can be used for general everday styling :) I personally think that the packaging is a bit bold and I wouldn't really be drawn to them in the shop, just because I'm basic and I like pink packaging haha. 





I used my Babyliss curling wand which is my go to curling tool and I pretty much curled all of my hair from the root. Once it was all curled, I let it cool down before brushing through my hair to soften it a little bit and then I used the *Extra Strong Lock it Hairspray. I think this hairspray is good however I would definitely say it's Extra Strong! I always pick the extra strong ones as I weirdly feel they're worth your money more however I find they're usually all the same. This one is strong and the first time I did it I sprayed it how I would normally spray hairspray and it was too much and too close to my head and I basically immortalised a huge section of my hair :') Those curls were perfect for days but I can't say I like having crisp curls haha! So this time round I knew to spray less and be a bit more cautious haha :)


L'Oreal Paris Studio Pro Lock It Hairspray Preen Me






So those were the products I used for this hair look. Overall I would probably use the heat spray and hairspray as they're quite generic hair products and I thought they worked well however I will stick to my texturising spray on my roots as I prefer how that looks and feels :) Thanks for reading and thank you L'Oreal and Preen.Me for sending me these products :)

*These products were sent to me free of charge however all opinions are 100% my own :)

I also did a little video tutorial. Annoyingly, I should have left my hair for a few hours so it would look how it usually does in my outfit photos but I didn't think of this :')

  4. Your hair looks great right after curling it; I love the tighter look! I usually do the same thing and just let my curls get looser and looser as the day goes on. :)

  7. You look gorgeous! I wish I was that good at styling my hair. Mine seems to be the opposite of yours - if I straighten it, it will usually start to wave again after a few hours!

  15. You look stunningly beautiful with curly hair. It really suits you. Your hair is very healthy and thick so when you curl it, its true volume really shows. I think that girls with thick hair always look good with curly hair- but the tricky part is that thick hair is actually hard to curl. Fortunately, there are many products to help us today. These L'oreal products seem great!
