Do you remember the brown tubular Vidal Sassoon bottles that we had when we were kids?  Well, P&G Beauty & Grooming recently introduced the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series color, care and styling line.  Perfected by experts, the collections offer quality products for creating effortlessly beautiful, real life styles at home.  And in sleek, modern, red bottles this time!

There are five care and styling collections in the Pro Series line, and at-home color kits which were released earlier this year, make styling and maintaining hair a breeze.

This week I tried out Vidal Sassoon Repair & Finish Spray and Vidal Sassoon Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse. I was excited to try out both products but I really love the Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse from the Volume Collection. Special foam technology helps control unruly hair for a weightless, pumped up feeling and provides up to 24 hours of flexible hold. What’s really great about this product is that it is easy to comb out. It doesn’t make my hair feel like a plastic wig like some mousse does.

On Monday I went to the salon and had about 5 inches of hair cut off with the result being a layered bob.  It had been about a 8 months my last hair cut and I was ready for something different.  My style inspiration came from Michelle Williams’ cute longish-pixie cut at the Oscar’s but I didn’t want to go that short so my stylist gave me a chin length layered bob.

Before my stylist blow-dried my hair, I expressed my concern that because my hair is so thick, it would still be heavy and lay flat, even with my new layers. That’s when she lifted two sections of hair and I applied a mousse. Of course, the salon’s mousse is about $30 and I had just paid a lot to get my hair cut so I passed on their mousse and I’m glad I did because one day later I received the Vidal Sassoon products to try.

I don’t have a lot of confidence when it comes to styling my hair or applying makeup so I appreciate any product that makes it easier for me to do either. Before blow-drying my hair I lifted two horizontal areas of hair about 3 inches wide and applied the Boost & Lift Foaming Air Mousse. I thought that it might leave my hair difficult to brush while blow-drying but it didn’t. After blow-drying, my hair looked full instead of flat and drab. Mission accomplished!


The Repair & Finish Spray is applied to towel-dried hair and tames the fly aways of which I usually seem to have a lot of after about two hours after having dried my hair. My hair just doesn’t seem to want to stay in place. While I will probably never use as much hairspray as I did in the 80’s I don’t think it’s a bad thing to use if it will keep your hair under control. This product also keeps damaged hair from breaking. If it’s been a few months since you had a cut or you recently had your hair colored, this is a great product to try.

Both of the products smell refreshing and light and are $3.99 each for 5.07 oz.  You can find the Vidal Sassoon Pro Series collection in drugstores and mass retailers including Wal-Mart and Target.
