Not only is this stuff nicely scented (fruity, not quite sure what fruit scent but it’s one of those cosmetics you’d almost rather eat than apply – always good), it’s packed full of ingredients like Mirustyle X-HP, which sounds like the name of a Star Wars character but is actually what makes Hairbond products protective from temperatures of up to 220°C. Both the Moulder and the Shaper (the two current products on sale) both contain Sangre de Drago, which sounds like an exotic cocktail (or is it just me!?) but is actually “dragon’s blood”, a sap from trees which makes hair appear thicker.
But does it work? Yeah, and really well, too. Neither product is overly greasy and doesn’t give off that vomit-inducing sheen so many products do. It’s resistant, too, and you won’t need to apply copious amounts every few hours to keep barnet-hell at bay.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t come as cheap as my usual haircare bits, but at around £12 a jar (they’re pretty sizeable, too), it’s value for money. It’s not yet available in Ireland (sorry, lads) but for UK-based readers, you’ll find a full list of stockists right here.
