Review// Scott Cornwall Precolour Protein Spray & Treatment

Hello lovelies! Today I'm talking about hair again. Some of you may have noticed on my Instagram and Twitter that I've had a drastic hair change. Well, I had a bit of a hair disaster so in a moment of desperation (and madness) I threw on a temporary orange hair dye. Let's just say it wasn't as temporary as it claimed. Anyways, I'm back to blonde now with the help of some washing up liquid and a bleach bath... eek. You can imagine the strain my poor hair has gone through so this Scott Cornwall Precolour Protein Spray* couldn't have come at a better time.

If you've been a long time reader of my blog, you'll know that I'm a huge fan of Scott Cornwall products especially the Colour Restore Toner (review here). It has saved me on many occasions so I had high hopes for this product. We all know that our body needs protein and so does our hair. If our hair is lacking in the protein department, it can become damaged, dry and brittle. At the same time, too much protein can be damaging. Why is hair care so hard?! I had no idea that you could get protein spray for hair and even better one aimed at protecting hair before colouring or bleaching so lets see if it was too good to be true!

Scott Cornwall's Precolour Protein Spray aims to protect weakened, dry and porous areas of hair prior to any colourant. The bottle states that it can also be used on very damaged hair as a regular post wash leave in treatment to retain moisture and help prevent further damage.

Claims 
-protect hair prior to chemical treatment 
-helps to strengthen and prevent breakage
-creates a more even colour by filling in the gaps in the dry and porous areas

Instructions:
Shake bottle before use and spray evenly throughout dry and porous hair. If colouring, never dry Protein Spray after application, comb through and ensure hair feels slightly damp. Then proceed to colour hair immediately after.

Thoughts:
First of all, this smells absolutely amazing. It reminds me of that lovely hair salon scent, I can't put my finger on what it is exactly but you'll know what I mean the next time you get your hair cut. I used this as a precolour treatment as stated but I had a hard time understanding the instructions. I wasn't too sure what it meant by not drying the spray so I kind of just hoped for the best with it. What I noticed was that my colour touch up was a lot more even. In fact, the colour was almost perfect minus a few patches that had less time to develop. My hair didn't feel any more damaged than it already was after bleaching (even on the ends where I gave it a bleach bath).

In terms of a protein hair treatment, I've been using this once a week after washing my hair and my hair does feel strong. I've also been sneakily spraying it in my hair to use as a hair perfume ... It may sound crazy but it just smells so good. The one thing that I didn't like about the Scott Cornwall Precolour Protein Spray is that if you go a bit overboard or don't distribute it evenly thought the hair, it feels a little stiff. Kind of like when you spray a bit too much hairspray so just don't be heavy handed with it.

Overall, I'm really impressed with the Precolour Protein Spray as it has helped me to get my hair back to normal by evening out the colour. My hair probably needs all the protein it can get at the moment so hopefully I'll be able to put this hair dye disaster behind me!

What's your thoughts? Have you tried anything like this before?

  14. I've never used a protein spray or even those shine sprays because they never seem to do much for my hair. I usually investing in serums as I can see a noticeable difference. This one sounds interesting and I need to keep an eye out for it x

  21. Aww babe- I'm so glad your hair catastrophe is over :) This product sounds like it did a wonderful job of protecting your hair from the bleach overdose. I find that a lot of protein sprays give me that stiff 'straw like' feel, but it's better than split ends :)

  28. Awww you poor dear! That sounds awful! I would definitely cry if that happened to my hair.

    And I know what you mean about having a lot of strain put on your hair! Last spring (2013) I went to florida and some people recommended that I put coconut oil all over my skin and hair to protect it from burning. I have pale skin, but I never really burn (guess it's just the native american in me). Anyways, I listened to them (why!!!) and my hair ended up FRIED. I didn't even realize how much my hair was changing till weeks later as it kept getting more and more brittle, no matter how many hydrating products I put on it. And long story short, I had to cut off a ton of my hair and I am still waiting for my hair to be long again. *sniff sniff*

    Hope you never have a hair nightmare again!

    1. Oh no! I would have cried! One of my friends curled my hair years ago and burnt it all. My hair turned into an Afro and I had to get it cut. So many trust issues with hair now haha
