I am all about hair products right now and my latest additions come from the Rene Furterer Lissea range, which has launched exclusively at Escentual. The french brand uses plant extracts and essential oils to actively enhance the hair and is based on the principle "beautiful hair grows from a healthy scalp, just like a plant in fertile soil". The Lissea range is fortified with Winter Cherry Extract and Avocado Oil and so is specifically designed to smooth and tame unmanageable, frizzy hair and replenish dry, weakened hair.
Lissea Smoothing Conditioner 150ml - £15.00
Rene Furterer recommends leaving this conditioner on for just two minutes to reduce frizz and add some weight and gloss to unruly hair. The formula is creamy and of a medium consistency, so as someone with very thick hair I tend to apply a generous dollop to the ends and work it through, just to be thorough! The Lissea Smoothing Conditioner smells absolutely amazing - fruity but sophisticated; one of those just-been-to-the-salon type of scents. It rinses out easily and leaves my hair not only smelling gorgeous, but super smooth and nourished, just as promised.
The Leave-in Smoothing Fluid has filled a big gap in my haircare collection and is the perfect product to prep the hair before blow drying. Only a small pump is needed of the lightweight, velvety fluid, which doesn't add any tacky or oily feel to the hair. Thankfully what it does have is the same gorgeous smell as the conditioner! I find that when I use this I don't need to apply as much hair oil or serum as normal post blow dry, if at all; my hair is bouncy and voluminous but without the frizz and flyaways. It can also be used on dry hair too.
A heat protection spray is a must when blow drying or straightening hair and this one can do both with its anti-humidity protection to heat of up to 220°C. Rene Furterer's offering is more of a mist than a spray and so is incredibly lightweight; this will be especially brilliant if you have very fine hair and normally struggle with products weighing your hair down. The only way I can tell I've applied this is by the scent, as it seems to just absorb into the hair straight away without leaving any residue. This is definitely my favourite product of the three.
All in all, the Lissea range really delivers on its promises and in my opinion, justifies their medium end price tag.
