Other than my face, my hair is the next important part of me that I take considerable care and spend time to manage.
The concern about having long hair is the constant battle of brittle and split ends. If you read my prior posts, I don’t mind spending on hair-related products to make my hair manageable and tame, the way I want it to be. So far, I have no complaints regarding the products since they improved the look and feel of my hair.
The Sample Store have sent me 2 hair products from Liese (pronounced ‘Lee-zay’ ) to test and review. I choose the following:
- Clear Cube Wax Straight
- Smooth Hair Cocktail
Clear Cube Wax Straight
What it claims:
- Water-based formula that spreads easily over your hair for a silky smooth finish.
- Leaves hair looking sleek, straight and frizz-free all day.
- Non-sticky feel
- Lightly scented with a fruity fragrance
Rub a small amount of wax onto your palm and in between your fingers. Run fingers through hair from roots to ends to create natural movement.
I prefer my hair straight. Using a hair straighter have been my daily regime to make it straight. Although I rebonded a year ago, the rebonded hair have somehow turned slightly wavy. The Clear Cube Wax is an addition to part of my daily regime. After straightening, I will apply this to the bottom half of my hair. The wax weighs my hair down and keep the bottom half straight and sleek. The after-finish is smooth and provides a "wet-look". I do not apply to my crown as the wax makes my hair look flat at the top.
This is how the product looks like in the jar. The texture is wet and non-sticky to the touch, though you will feel that the product is in your hair if you used too much. The smell is pleasant and will fade off awhile later. As for the effectiveness of it's hold, it is excellent, keeps my hair 'naturally' straight for the whole day.
The Clear Cube Wax retails for:
29g - S$6.90
65g - S$12.90
Number indicates strongest hair setting power. 06 being the strongest.
Smooth Hair Cocktail
What it claims:
Smoothens out tangles instantly and gently so that combs/fingers can run through. Bi-layer treatment contains, Moisture Milk that nourishes and smoothens each strands of hair. Repairing Water that is absorbed instantly and hydrates hair inside out.
Before use, shake bottle well to mix the two layers. Leave on hair for awhile for the hair cocktail to be absorbed. Spray mainly onto tangled or tangle-prone portion of dry or damp hair. To loosen out your tangles effectively,conb hair slowly in stages in the following sequences:
1) Comb through hair ends.
2) Comb from mid-length to ends
3) Comb from roots to ends
The first time I saw the Smooth Hair Cocktail in Watsons when it was first launched, I was attracted to the packaging, its pink and metallic looking! This is how the hair Cocktail looks like close up:
The time went I have the most amount of tangled hair is after bathing with toweled dry hair. It is a struggle to comb and it hurts. With the Smooth Hair Cocktail, it makes detangling easy and fast. You need to shake it up to mix the Moisture Milk and Repairing Water. The first spray to my hair brings an aroma that I will describe as "delicious".
The Smooth Hair Cocktail retails for:
140 ml - S$15.90
Let's have some pictures to the the talking:
This is how my hair looks like after towel drying, and after using the above mentioned products. Well, I will let you judge my before hair. Truthfully, I can't leave the house without setting my hair. So that before picture, is a NO NO.
I'm showing you how I achieve the straigh-sleek look with Liese Clear Cub Wax and Smooth Hair Cocktail.
Step 1: Spray about 5 to 6 pumps of Smooth Hair Cocktail concentrating on the tangled areas. With a comb, I run through my hair to smooth out the tangles.
Step 2: Prior to using the hair straightener, I use a heat-protectant. Then I straighten the lenght of my hair.
Step 3 / 4: Take an appropriate amount of wax, and spread it on my hair. I like to work with small portions so that I have control over the amount and also to prevent my hair to look like it's having too much products.
Thats it! Easy and simple. All I took was 15 minutes to complete the desired look.
Why not try Liese yourself?
