In very exciting news, I became a brand ambassador in January 2017 for Umberto Giannini. Hair products have always been quite important in my beauty bag as my locks need some taming especially with the San Francisco wind!
It took some time for me to find the right products for my hair and hands down the best product is Umberto Giannini Curl Jelly for control. When I arrived to the US in 2014, I searched to find my new go-to styling product to keep my hair at bay. I use to fill up my suitcase with multiple bottles on my trips home to Ireland as I couldn’t find anything similar. Umberto Gianinni can now be shipped to the US (rejoice!). I have been using this product for years and even on photoshoots, I bring it with me as it is great for flyaways or for a touch up midway though. Thankfully now as a brand ambassador, I no longer need to fill up my suitcase and the lovely team at Umberto Giannini send me packages of joy and new products to test out.
Umberto Giannini have a whole range of curl products which I can talk about another time but I have been busy putting some of their new products to the test and have a couple of my new favorites below.
Umberto Giannini have launched their indulgent range which are packed in such pretty white and gold packaging. I tried out the Pick Me Up Nutrient Spray which gave my hair a boost and gave it even more life. I also loved the smell of the product. I was generous when using this and allowed a good few sprays per use. I applied the product on wet hair before brushing and it made the workout much easier! This product is also great for protecting hair from heat damage and contains coconut oil and jojoba oil to detangle and nourish.
Also from the indulgent range is Spoil Me hair oil which I pop in my bag and use at the end of the day to freshen up if I am going to an event/dinner after work and want to add some shine or if my ends are looking dry. I have also used this the day after I have my hair straightened to smooth ends.
My final new find is the Over Indulge Hair Mask. The suggested leave on timing is 3 minutes and suggested use is once a week for a nourishing boost. I tend to use masks as conditioners twice a week so used this 1-2 times a week as a mask and really noticed a difference.
All products can be purchased here. These are just some of my favorite finds so far. I'm trying out new fabulous products which are launching soon and looking forward to sharing them with you!
2018 update: As of May 2018, I am no longer a brand ambassador for Umberto Giannini as I wish to try out new hair products and work with a variety of hair companies. Curl Jelly is still my go to product for maintaining my tresses! Thank you Umberto Giannini for an amazing year plus!
