Schwarzkopf got2b Mind Blowing Xpress Dry Styling Spray, Fast Dry Hairspray, Powder'ful Volumizing Powder & All Star 10 in 1 Styling Treatment review
On the hunt for some new hair styling products that won't break the bank? I've been testing out this budget-friendly lot from Schwarzkopf's got2b range to see how they compare to my usual products.

Anyone who blow-dries their long hair at home will know that a styling product which promises to speed up the whole process is truly worth its weight in gold. This one also offers additional heat protection and promises to detangle as well as conditioning the hair. I've used the KMS California Free Shape Quick Blow Spray for years which is something of a holy grail product of mine but I have to say that the got2b Xpress Dry Styling Spray is a good dupe for it as it works almost exactly the same and is a fraction of the price. The only downside that I experienced was that it did leave some product buildup if I used it more than once a week which the KMS Calfornia doesn't do for me, but at this price point, I won't mind alternating the two to prevent that!

I'm not a big hairspray user to be honest so I haven't tried many, but this one seems to be pretty good. It comes out as a fine mist so it's easy to apply where you want it and it doesn't leave my hair feeling sticky or crunchy. The hold is also good; it's not super strong mind, but I generally prefer a hairspray that offers a more flexible hold that works with my style so it suits me well.

I was hoping that Powder'ful was going to be a potential budget dupe for my beloved TIGI Sugardust but I find using it quite tricky in the sense of how much I need to apply. Apply too little, and it doesn't do anything, but apply too much, and it turns my roots into a matty mess that's a pain to wash out. I've managed to get the right amount only once so far and the results were great (not as good as Sugardust but it gave noticeable volume) but it's so difficult to get it right and almost too time-consuming to use.

Schwarzkopf got2b All Star 10 in 1 Styling Treatment* (100ml, £3, link
I'm always dubious about products that claim to do absolutely everything and All Star promises to do 10 things:- add shine, fullness, strength, thickness, smoothness, suppleness, heat protection, anti-frizz, anti-humidity and shape. Phew! In a nutshell, it's basically a styling conditioner that you can use pre or post blow-drying/straightening/curling. As a general styling conditioner it's excellent for just £3 as it does add shine and smoothness, tames frizz and didn't frazzle my hair so the heat protection works. But don't expect it to do anything more than that as I didn't see any changes with regards to volume, strength, fullness etc.

Have you tried any of these?

  1. I have tried the Xpress dry styling spray and I do like it but I'm not blown away by it. I find it does help to speed up my blow dry a little and obviously it provides heat protection but I find it can leave my hair a little crunchy on top if I don't brush it through properly after spraying it on x

    1. I start to get that if I've used too much product - definitely not as good as the KMS California but good for the price x
