richard ward haircare

A few weeks ago I was sent a selection products from The Chelsea Collection by Richard Ward*. I've been trying them out in the mean time, and decided it's finally time to share my opinion on this range. Richard Ward is a celebrity hair stylist, and his range recently launched in Waitrose. The four products that I have been trying are Keratin based products, that each have a specific role to play in your hair routine. Let's get started.

keratin luminiser
This product is labelled as an 'ultra-clarifying colour brightening treatment' - however I'd rather call it a deep cleansing shampoo, and that's how I'd recommend using it. The instructions say to apply as a shampoo on wet hair, and leave in for 3-5 minutes. This is how I used the product the first time I tried it out, and boy did it strip my hair clean. I have quite damaged hair from years of heat and bleach abuse, so for my poor brittle hair this product is too strong when used as instructed. Instead, I like to use it as a regular shampoo (rinsing immediately rather than 3-5 minutes later) to wash out coconut oil. Due to the deep cleansing nature of this product it is perfect for cleansing your hair of nourishing oil treatments.

keratin volume shampoo & restore conditioner
The shampoo and conditioner are lovely, they have the same fruity scent as the rest of the products in this range and do a good job at what they claim to do. That being said, I didn't find them to be particularly miraculous products, and didn't notice much difference on days I didn't reach for these ones in the shower. They're a solid shampoo and conditioner set, but nothing to write home about. 

keratin styling spray
For me, this product is the winner of the bunch. It provides both heat & UV protection for your hair, and works as a great smoothing-styling spray. I use this on wet hair before blow drying, and on dry hair before using any heat tools again. I find it makes my hair shinier, and helps hold the curls or straight styles longer than other heat protection sprays. Out of all the products this is the one I look forward to using, and remember to take with me when I head to the boyfriends house at the weekends. A definite future re-purchase.

This collection is available at Waitrose and all products are £5.99 each

Have you tried anything from the collection? I'd love to know what you thought of them. 
Thank you so much for stopping by, much love
