Haute Mess Texture Gel
5.0
Created with Sketch.

2 days ago

So I’m home for awhile due to COVID-19 & decided to experiment with some possible air dry products in my closet since if it turned out badly only my husband would know! This product is one that I found at TJ Maxx a few months back but had never tried. I was intrigued because it’s made with sea buckthorn, which I’ve used straight & in various creams & lotions on my skin with good results. Seems to be a big win!! I never can tell for sure until I’ve used a hair product repeatedly but so far I’m very impressed! I toweled off my hair (which is about 2” past my collarbone) & used Bumble & Bumble Hair Dresser’s Oil Tonic lightly all over for detangling, then scrunched in about a garbanzo bean sized dab of this from ears down. Unlike many/most air dry products, this left my hair full of body with soft waves WITHOUT frizz!! It’s actually pretty awesome! The package said it would leave a matte finish but I find it to be reasonably shiny too, which is a nice plus. I believe that Amika repackaged/reformulated their whole line, which is why I think it was at TJM for awhile. I sure hope the new version of this is still as good. For reference, my hair is mostly straight, fine, aging & colored-over gray.

I have thick, wavy, graying hair that I blow dry to be straight. Since it takes so long for my hair to dry (I use a 2000 watt hair dryer!), I need effective heat protection. I believe this product delivers, and does it well. For one thing, the sprayer on the bottle is very good and delivers a wide mist that covers large sections of my hair at a time. Second, my hair always looks smooth and shiny when I use this. I have repurchased 4 times already and I hope they don't discontinue it.

I didn't even think it was possible to dislike a shampoo and conditioner so much. I have naturally fine hair, but a good amount of it. I got this as a sample so thankfully I didn't spend money on it but it's awful! It left my hair with the grossest, most tangled texture of all time. It gives your hair that almost dry-sticky feeling you get on spots if you fail to wash product out all of the way, but all of this product was definitely rinsed out so I have no idea why it felt so horribly. It also managed to stay weirdly tangled no matter how many times I brushed it, like I had been stuck in a permanent wind storm or something. I just hate it.
