If you follow my instagram you’ll know I’ve been trying out these two treats. They’re from a British based company called Duck & Dry. In the lil green number we have Instant TLC and the pink one on the left is Blow Dry in a Bottle. Spoiler alert, I’ve got a favourite!
Duck & Dry products are packed full of natural goodies. Unlike most hair products around these days, they focus on active ingredients and essential oils. After claiming the throne for offering the ‘finest blow drys and updos in London’, the team decided to offer a little salon luxury at home.
Blow Dry in a Bottle*
I have to start with a confession, I only use heat products when I’m going all out! My hair is so long that styling takes a decade and curls seem to drop after about 5 minutes. When I first heard about Blow Dry in a Bottle I obviously had my initial doubts. That said, I roped my flatmate in to try the product on her much more manageable hair to make it a fair trial.
The formula is a bit peculiar, it doesn’t feel like a crispy hairspray when it’s in your hair but it works in a similar way. I definitely noticed more volume, as did my flatmate who has short hair. My ends curled easier and the definition definitely lasted longer than most, but not all night I must say. No hard feelings, my hair is just a monster. My flatmate with shorter hair definitely had better luck!
I’m not exaggerating when I write this – my hair has never felt better. Once upon a time I loved the Aussie 3 minute miracle, but Duck & Dry Instant TLC has blown it out of the water. I first used this whilst drying my hair naturally and was surprised to find there was no sticky residue. I often find that many leave-in products don’t work as well without heat, but this spritz did the job!
After trying the product when naturally drying my hair, I decided to turn up the heat. As mentioned, I rarely use heat products on my hair these days due to time and damage. That said, after using the leave-in conditioner with my hair dryer it felt so healthy! In the morning I had no tangles. Brushing my hair was a breeze and my ponytail was sleek and smooth all day.
I’m definitely bought into the brand with these results and I will be eagerly awaiting the arrival of their shampoo, which is yet to launch! I can see myself purchasing the TLC conditioner again and whilst the Blow Dry in a Bottle wasn’t right for me, it definitely gave my flatmate with shorter hair great results. So if you’re having a mad week and you’re in need of some hair therapy, I’d definitely recommend these two products!
