When it comes to our hair, there’s no one-size-fits-all – and the same should be true of our hair care. But with so many products on the beauty shelves, it can be a case of trial and error finding the right ones for your locks‘ individual needs. That’s why team SL put System Professional’s new range of bundles to the test – here’s what they thought of the lookfantastic-stocked range...

CREATED IN PARTNERSHIP WITH SYSTEM PROFESSIONAL

DRY/COLOURED:

Astrid Carter, Managing Editor

System Professional Protector Bundle
 
 
How would you describe your hair type?
Naturally curly, but after years of straightening and tonging it’s lost a lot of its wave. It’s still in good condition, but I have a lot of it and a good amount of frizz. I’ve also had balayage for a couple of years, so the colour is starting to dry it out.
 
What are you always looking for from your hair care?
 
A shampoo that gives me shine, a condition that really moisturises and styling products that save time and give me a natural looking wave without spending too much time on it.
 
What's your biggest hair concern?
Getting rid of frizz and keeping my colour looking bright and healthy.
 
What did you use from SP?
The Protector Bundle, which includes the LuxeOil Shampoo, Color Save Conditioner and Hydrate Quenching Mist.
 
How did you find it?
I loved the shampoo – it immediately made my hair feel deeply cleansed without that rough, moisture-stripping feel. The conditioner also gave me enough moisture without a mask, but I’d probably still introduce a deep-conditioning mask once a week for an extra hit of shine. And the Hydrate Quenching Mist was so easy to use. The nozzle gives just the right amount of application on wet hair and it definitely made blow-drying easier and gave a good shine, even after I’d tonged it.
 
What was your favourite?
Probably the conditioner as I’m always on the hunt for more moisture, moisture, moisture.
 
Would you use it again?
I’ve been using it since the trial so safe to say, yes.
 
Did you see a noticeable difference in your hair's...
 
Texture? It’s definitely smoother and has less flyaways.
 
Shine? Yes, but I’d recommend introducing a mask once a week too if you have frizzy hair like mine.
 
Ability to style? Yes, I usually use more than three products when I’m styling so it definitely cut time down with the same result.
 

BLONDE/COLOURED:

Charlotte Collins, Fashion Editor
 
System Professional Perfectionist Bundle
 
How would you describe your hair type?
My actual hair is thin, but there's lots of it. It's completely straight naturally, so I'm constantly battling to give it some body, texture and waves. I also colour it every three to four months.
 
What are you always looking for from your hair care?
My hair works best with light products – anything too heavy and it drops and loses its shine. It also has a tendency to feel dry (I'm guilty of frequent straightener abuse) and because it's so thin, it gets greasy quickly. Therefore, I'm always after a shampoo with some serious froth to get right to those dirty roots, a conditioner that really locks in moisture, and something to help those dry, damaged ends.
 
What's your biggest hair concern?
My hair is littered with split ends. I'm pretty bad at getting those regular haircuts in, and with the colour and constant heat application, its condition frequently takes a hit.
 
What did you use from SP?
The Perfectionist Bundle, which includes the Repair Shampoo, Luxe Oil Keratin Conditioning Cream and Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir.
 
How did you find it?
The shampoo and conditioner bundle was everything I want out of my hair care – great froth, a super-soft wash and long-lasting results. I'm a bit of a sceptic when it comes to extra haircare products, but the Elixir gave me extra gloss and shine without weighing down my locks. They also stayed seriously soft, and subsequent styling really lasted.
 
What was your favourite?
I'm a sucker for a conditioner that gives my hair a silky finish, even when still wet, and this one left it particularly soft and easy to comb through.
 
Would you use it again?
All three are already fixtures on my shower shelf...

LONG/FINE:

Cressida Micklem, Advertising Manager

System Professional Booster Bundle
 
How would you describe your hair type?
Long, straight, un-coloured hair that's lacking in volume and shine, and prone to dryness from over blow-drying.
 
What are you always looking for from your hair care?
A range I can use every day that helps protect my hair from the heat of my hairdryer, whilst adding volume and shine. It needs to be easy and quick to use.
 
What's your biggest hair concern?
Dryness and damage. I wash my hair too much and I find it gets greasy very quickly if I don't wash it every day.
 
What did you use from SP?
The Booster Bundle, which includes including the Volumize Shampoo, Hydrate Conditioner and Repair Perfect Hair Heat Protection Mist.
 
I also used the Perfect Ends Cream from the Personality Pick Me Ups Bundle, along with the Instant Energy Spray at the weekend when I wanted my hair to feel re-energised and last that extra day between washes.
 
How did you find it?
Amazing. The Volumize Shampoo and Hydrate Conditioner were weightless enough to use every day and really added a shine to my hair. I didn't need to use much product and the smell was amazing. My hair was really easy to brush and manage after using.
 
What was your favourite?
The Perfect Ends Lotion really did restore the ends of my hair and hide any split ends and flyaways.
 
Would you use it again?
100%. The range made my hair look better than it has in a long time.
 
Did you see a noticeable difference in your hair's...
 
Texture? Yes, I had lots more volume and it was really soft and smooth.

Colour? No, I don’t colour my hair.

Shine? Yes, it was far shiner.

Ability to style? I found it much easier to style with the Personality Pick Me Ups Bundle. I'm guilty of usually forgoing any styling products but after using the Perfect Ends Cream and Aerohold Mousse my hair was noticeably easier to manage and my hairbrush glided through!
 

NATURAL/AFRO:

Rianne Jordan, Digital Marketing Assistant

System Professional Hero Bundle
 
How would you describe your hair type?
My hair type is naturally very curly and frizzy, and as I straighten it often it becomes quite dry and damaged.
 
What are you always looking for from your hair care?
Something super hydrating that will help repair all the heat damage.
 
What's your biggest hair concern?
Split ends and frizziness.
 
What did you use from SP?
The Hero Bundle, which includes the Hydrate Shampoo, Smoothen Conditioner and Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir.
 
How did you find it?
The shampoo and conditioner made my hair really soft, but I need something with a bit more weight so my hair doesn't go so flyaway. The Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir smells amazing and really made a difference to my split ends, they didn't look as frizzy and my hair looked a lot shiner.
 
What was your favourite?
The Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir – it's really handy, and I saw a noticeable difference even after one use.
 
Would you use it again?
Would use this again Luxe Oil Reconstructive Elixir 
 
Did you see a noticeable difference in your hair's...
 
Texture? It was smoother and less frizzy.
