Percy and Reed Finishing Polish

18 April 2013



Magazine freebies - sometimes they're great, sometimes they're a wee bit iffy. Glamour has paired up with Percy & Reed a few times and they seem to hand out some of the better goodies, and the rest they say is history. I now make trips to Space NK to stock up on some of their shampoos and I'm always pretty damn pleased with the results. When I picked up the Percy & Reed Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish as a freebie in a copy of Glamour recently, it did sit sad and lonely in my hair basket for a long while, as I was very much in a whirlwind m√©nage a trois with a certain Aussie Aussome Texturising Conditioning Gel Spray and John Frieda Frizz Ease. 

Seeing as I hate unused (and lonely) products, I've been whacking out the Finishing Polish in the last few weeks to put it to the test. Unlike sprays and serums, this is a cream-gel type product and looks kinda like a moisturiser but for your hair. I use serums to keep frizz and unruly flyaways at bay and for my hair, they really work. Only downside I sometimes find with serums is that they can cause excess grease occasionally which if you're a hair-washing nazi like myself, can be a little disappointing. The Finishing Polish doesn't create any excess oils which has made me a very happy Tamsin. As instructed, I have been using a pea sized amount, and I have run it through my hair from shoulders down after blow-drying. The results have been better than I ever expected and my hair has felt moisturised and generally very loved since using it. On days where I'm not being a hair-washing nazi and just giving it a spritz of dry shampoo, the Finishing Polish is still working its magic and I wake up with untangled, smooth and happy hair.

The verdict? The Quite Frankly Flawless Finishing Polish is a keeper, quite frankly.
