So it’s not often that I’ll write about haircare products as I’m not the best when it comes to hairstyles…my hair is normally down in waves/curls and on the odd occasion I’ll wear it straight…other times you’ll see me in sporting a ‘messy’ bun and that’s the extent of my hairstyles…wow! So a few days ago I popped into Superdrug to have a look for a new wax type product to just hold my waves/curls better and I came across this VO5 Soft Moulding Wax.
Why did I pick the VO5 Soft Moulding Wax?
I actually picked it for the sparkle effect on the front….seriously! Anything that resembles a sparkle I’m drawn to it haha!
No on a serious note the product is described as a soft wax which gives definition (hold) to the hair, gives it shine and controls frizz.
Considering I have wavy/curly hair I don’t suffer with frizz which is fab but my hair is very ‘in it’s own world’ and sometimes my hair is wavy and other times curly hence why I say my hair is wavy/curly!
What do I think of the VO5 Soft Moulding Wax?
I like the colour, it’s pink! It makes me happy and it has a very nice smell, think of it as fresh flowers….that’s the best way to describe it. The texture is indeed a soft wax and when it warms up turns into a very sticky cream.
After washing and towel-drying my hair I combed it through and applied a little amount of the VO5 soft Moulding wax through my hair and started to scrunch it just to see the outcome. After letting it air-dry my hair looked ok, there was more definition but it wasn’t wow and I could feel a little bit of the product on my hair….not great. 🙁
The second time I used this product I used less and didn’t scrunch it but again I let it air-dry….again I found that I could feel the product on my hair….I hate it when that happens!!
The time after this I decided to use a small amount on the ends of my hair to see if it’ll just give it a little bit of hold without the feeling of product in my hair and that worked the best- yay!
Overall what do I think of the VO5 Soft Moulding Wax?
I think it’s an OK product, I don’t use a lot of it now and would never use this if I was to straighten my hair as I think it’ll feel awful!
However if you have wavy/curly hair like me use a very small amount (pea size) on the back of hair and scrunch it slightly, it’ll give it more hold and you shouldn’t feel it in your hair. 🙂
Would I recommend this to family, friends and readers?
No, as much as I’d like to say this is a wonderful product, I have to say it’s not that great. It does give slight hold and if you do use a small amount you won’t feel it on the hair however I do think there are better products out there….sorry VO5! 🙁
So, lovely readers, if you’ve tried this please let me know!
