Tested Thursday: Umberto Giannini Flirty Curls

tt-umberto-thWelcome to another Tested Thursday, and today I’m talking about hair products. Specifically the Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly from Umberto Giannini. Now, I have naturally curly hair, but there is method in my madness, as my curly hair is more of a birds nest than a style. So I am always looking for ways to tidy it up. The question I am answering in this post is did it work?

I’ll be honest first. My hair needs professional help. It hasn’t been touched by a professional since August *cringes* Yes, that long. I admit it. Until it does though, and even afterwards, I need something to tame the curls. In my Best of Beauty post on Hair Heroes, I talked about the L’Oreal Professionel Spiral Splendour product. This is similar, but cheaper, and widely available.

Before putting this in I washed and conditioned my hair with the VO5 smoothly does it range shampoo and conditioner, part towel dried and run through with a large paddle brush. I then followed the instructions as listed on the back of the tube which tells me to “work the product evenly through mid lengths and ends and scrunch dry” I did scrunch it dry, but to speed up drying time I also used my hairdryer on the lowest setting, continually scrunching each section as it dried.

And the results. Did the long lasting curl definer de frizz, shine, and create sexy romantic curls? Actually it kinda did. I wouldn’t go as far as to call them sexy curls, but they are more defined, tidier and better looking. With my birds nest, that has to be a selling point. It’s not just out of the salon amazing, but it is quite passable!

Umberto Giannini Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly is €6.49, and I got it as part of a Boots 3 for 2.

What do you use or recommend for curly hair? Are you a fan of curls, waves or poker straight? The comment line is open below.
