When I won a Macadamia hairspray from the lovely girls at Baobella, they sent me a sachet of Yuko shampoo and conditioner to try as well. Then a couple of weeks later I was actually contacted and asked if I would like to try the brand and I jumped at the chance. I had never heard of the brand before but even after the first use of the sachet I was impressed and after reading more about the products, I couldn’t wait to try them properly. Yuko supplies different treatments targeted at frizzy hair that you can get done in a salon and they then provide home care treatments to use yourself to maintain your results.
Yuko Anti-frizz Shampoo* & Conditioner* – £12.50 each – Having already used one sachet and been thoroughly happy with the results I couldn’t wait to try the products properly. I have been using them both for 3 weeks now and I have noticed a huge difference. Although my hair has never been extremely frizzy, it does resemble a birds nest been knocked about in the wind a little too often and since using this range, I haven’t used heat on my hair at all. As soon as I wash my hair, it instantly felt soft and silky even though it was wet and once dry, it’s the same and not the slightest bit slimy and it didn’t feel weighed down. The next thing is the scent. I love a gorgeous smelling hair product but this is ridiculous. I can smell the scent wafting around me, once I had my hair up in a bun and when I took it down all I could smell was the shampoo. Even my boyfriend noticed and asked if I had sprayed perfume! I know strong scents are not for everyone but I personally love them. Although the scent isn’t as strong as such, the fruity smell does stick around for days. The final and most impressive property of these two beauties is the fact that I can go two days without having to wash my hair now. I can get to three day hair and only have to apply a tiny amount of dry shampoo just to boost the ole’ roots a bit. I can not fault these two at all.
Yuko Repair Through Spray* – £15.00 – I don’t even know where to start with this product. I don’t want to be too gushy gushy but I think it has to be done. I have the tangliest knottiest hair ever, sometimes it takes me about 45 minutes just to comb it and drying time is usually another 30 minutes. I have used numerous products that boast to help prevent tangles, the closest I got to being impressed was when I used It’s a 10! and although it was lovely, it didn’t help the knots. I was so intrigued to try this as it is a heat protectant but contains moisturising agents to help achieve smooth soft locks. I spray about five pumps all over my hair and leave for about five minutes and combing has never been easier. I kid you not, this is my Holy Grail anti-tangle spray from now on. I use it every single time I was my hair and it leaves my hair tangle free and smelling utterly divine. Even when my hair is dry I have noticed that I have had to brush my hair less and it no longer gets knotty during the day. I can’t believe I’ve finally found a product that works. You get 200ml which is a great amount and it will last a really long time.
