Tigi Catwalk – Oatmeal & Honey

As you might have guessed I don’t have much to do with catwalks. Although there was a rather kind e-mail the other day from a fashion brand inviting me to Paris fashion week and offering to dress me for the shows that I politely declined as I realised that it was an error and thought I should save us all the embarrassment!

The Catwalk that I’m talking about today is the hair care range from TIGI – and recently I’ve been trying out the oatmeal and honey variation. TIGI get their inspiration from the fashion scene, and it’s their attention to individual style that’s exactly what TIGI Catwalk is about.

The range is specially formulated for dry and damaged hair, and the Tigi Catwalk Oatmeal and Honey Shampoo is designed to gently cleanse and provide intense nourishment and moisture to keep your hair feeling soft and supple. With grey/bleached hair I’ve struggled to find products that make my hair soft, sleek and shiny and I could feel straight away that this was going to be a product that I could work with. It’s enriched with acacia honey, wheat protein and vitamin E and as well as strengthening it smells great too.

With such dry ends my hair doesn’t usually react well to conditioner and I find that I need to use a mask or treatment of some kind to make my hair feel great. Still, after I used the shampoo for the first time I followed it with the Tigi Catwalk Oatmeal and Honey Conditioner. It promises to  detangle your “tresses” (hmm that makes it sound as though it’s going to be Rapunzel that’s using it!) as well as providing nourishment and moisture. As for the shampoo its enriched with acacia honey, wheat protein and vitamin E.

Using the conditioner I was so surprised to find that it was absolutely perfect for my hair and made it feel really sleek and shiny. In fact I was even able to let it dry naturally curly without it looking frizzy. – something that I can normally only do after a good treatment mask. I was impressed!

So on to the TIGI Catwalk Oatmeal and Honey Intense Nourishing Mask. As I said from previous experience I’d expect that this would be the more intense product that I’d need to  sort out my hair. I was expecting that I should use once or twice a week. So the next time I washed my hair I used this instead of the conditioner.

It’s a rich, luxurious mask  formulated with a blend of fibre-penetrating ingredients intended to help reverse damage and provide a moisture boost. Now this is where I didn’t quite get what I was expecting. The results from the mask weren’t quite as good as I’d expected. I mean my hair felt great but the conditioner worked better. So from my experience with the products I’d say go ahead and buy the shampoo and conditioner, but I’m not certain that the mask has anything to add.

What’s your experience of hair products to rescue dry hair? Have you tried any TIGI products?
