Game Changing Haircare from Color Wow

Color Wow Haircare Review Image

Ever since I was in my late teens and had my own money to spend on beauty products, I’ve been buying haircare.  Over the years, I’ve tried out so many products from the cheapest of the cheap to super high end; some have been fabulous, others not so much.  These days, it really takes something special to wow me and that’s certainly the feeling that I got when I tried out the haircare from Color Wow.

There was one product in particular that really wowed me and that’s the Color Wow Speed Dry.  This product is a total game changer.

You might remember a post I put together recently on the Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Express Primer (review here) which is a cream that you smooth all over your damp hair before blowdrying to speed up the drying time.  While it worked to make my hair dry faster, I noted that it left my hair feeling awful; very much like cotton wool.  It left my hair feeling a bit like I’d used plumping powder in it which isn’t a nice, clean feeling at all which meant that I could only really use it on days where I was in a rush to get my hair washed so that I could go out but when I knew that I would be washing my hair the next day.

In comparison, the Color Wow Speed Dry blow dry spray is far superior.  It has all of the benefits of being able to dry your hair faster but none of the awful feeling left behind once your hair is dry.

Speed Dry is a clear blowdry spray that you spritz all over towel dried hair.  Only a tiny bit is used so a bottle lasts an incredibly long time.  It is completely clear, doesn’t need rubbing in and is undetectable on the hair.  This product dramatically speeds up the time that it takes for me to blowdry my hair and it leaves my locks looking smooth and sleek without any sticky feeling whatsoever.  I cannot feel that I’ve used this in my hair whatsoever, I can only feel and see the benefits of it drying far quicker and leaving my hair looking fabulous.

The Color Wow Speed Dry spray has an alcohol free and low pH level formula that counteracts porosity and traps moisture inside the hair to help to dry it faster.  This is therefore safer and healthier for your hair as it is protecting it against too much heat which can damage the texture of the hair and accelerate colour fade.

The other products that I have tried from Color Wow have all been great too although Speed Dry is the stand out for me and definitely a product that I couldn’t be without now.

The great thing about Color Wow is that they have their shampoo for everyone to use to cleanse their hair and then they have a couple of different types of conditioner that do the same thing but are aimed at different hair thicknesses.  This is a genius idea as often some conditioners can be too heavy for those with fine hair and can weigh it down.

The Color Wow Color Security Shampoo and Color Wow Color Security Conditioner for normal to thick hair have worked so well on my locks, especially when I had more extensions in.  I’ve been having a darker root stretch put through my hair and they have really helped to stop my hair from fading as quickly.  My hair is notorious for washing up quickly but I do think that the colour has remained in my hair for longer thanks to using this duo along with the other products in the line.  After use, my hair feels very clean but not stripped and the mid lengths and ends of my hair are nourished so well with the conditioner.

For styling, I always add the Color Wow Raise The Root spray to the roots on the top section of my head before round brushing my hair.  This product is designed to thicken the hair and give it lift, body and volume.  It contains a UV filter and crystal clear styling resins that wont yellow or darken the hair.  This is very typical of the Color Wow haircare range in that the products are all created with coloured hair in mind so that they wont encourage the colour to fade or change as a result of using their products or heat styling.
On my hair, the result of using this spray is a natural bouncy volume in my hair but nothing too extreme.  It doesn’t feel as though my hair is coated or as though I have anything on my hair, it remains touchably soft from root to tip thanks to the lightweight ‘elastimers’ within the formula.

A product that also helps with this is the Color Wow Pop & Lock Crystallite Shellac which is a product that combines the conditioning benefits of a hair oil with the shine benefits of a serum.  It can be used on damp or dry hair to internally repair the hair and create a protective seal on it which helps to make hair colour pop and shine.  It even has a UV filter for added anti-fade protection.  I like to use it on damp hair through the mid lengths and ends.  For evenings out, if I want to add a little extra shine to my hair then occasionally I’ll rub a small amount through my fingertips and pick up small strands to coat.

However when my hair is dry, I tend to use the Color Wow One Minute Transformation Cream and then just top up with a shine spray if I want a little extra shine.  This cream is literally a wonder product.  On days where my hair doesn’t need a wash but I want that just blow dried look, I’ll smooth some of this cream through the frizzy parts of my hair and then I’ll round brush blow dry the area for 10 to 15 seconds and my hair is magically smoothed.  The ends of my hair get really dry and frizzy and this works wonders on them too, leaving them looking smooth and sleek.  Its definitely a wonder product!

If you’re looking for high performing products that wont dull your hair colour then Color Wow is definitely the way to go.  They’re not just for those with coloured hair but they have the added benefit of being kind to colour too.  The Speed Dry spray is an absolute MUST BUY for me, closely followed by the One Minute Transformation Cream!


Have you tried any products from Color WOW?  What would you recommend to me?

    My mummy could do with some of this as her hair is dyed black. She should pay more attention to the condition of it!

    I don't use products like these, opting to use natural products. I wash and condition with a shampoo bar, ACV and essential oils. And I use argan oil (100% argan oil – not the stuff you find in Boots, etc). My hair feels so much better for it.

    I've never heard of this brand but it sounds like a good one. I'm terribly lazy when it comes to hair care, tbh – a simple shampoo bar and then I'm off!
