Beauty: shiny locks with Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry

Let me just come out and say it: bleaching your hair does not make it shinier, healthier or easier to style. And yet, most of us go through with it at some point in our lives, whether it is to try a bright colour, to hide our grays or to go blonde. I'm currently going through a blonde period and I'm absolutely loving most parts of it. I love how I look better in warm based colours now (give me all the rose gold jewelry), and the beachy vibe is perfect for summer. 

However, while I used to be able to let my hair airdry and have it look, well, pretty good, this is not the case anymore. My locks look the best by far if I either blowdry for a sleek look, or if I want a more casual look: if I let my ends dry naturally while my hair is up in a bun (great way to get those pretty, beachy waves). I particularly need to baby my ends. Even though they have benefited greatly from the Smartbond treatment I got during my third round of highlights - my hair actually feels and looks healthier than it did before those highlights - I still try to limit heat damage to a minimum by using the right protecting and smoothing products. Hair oil has become my best bud.

I was recently sent the new Redken Diamond Oil Glowdry range to test, and when I saw the results I knew I had to tell you guys about it. Let's take a look!

The Diamond Oil Glowdry range contains four products: a gloss scrub (used to scrub your lengths to remove product buildup), a gloss shampoo, a detangling conditioner and my personal fav: the diamond oil, which is a hair oil that protects against heat and contains heat-activated silicones that give your hair an amazing glossy finish. I also really love how it comes in a beautifully shaped, diamond like bottle.

I used all of these products as recommended, let's take a look at the result!

I think the results speak for themselves? My hair looks shiny, healthy, sleek, and the blonde looks brighter because of how it reflects the light. The diamond oil is absolutely my favourite out of the product range: it's a lightweight oil that won't weigh down your hair or make it feel or look greasy, and it smells wonderful: a sweet flowerbomb type perfume.

I have since used the oil on its own and obtained similar results, so I'd say that if you've only got budget for one of these products: get the oil. I have tried loads of different hair oils and serums in the past, and none of them are so light yet impactful on smoothing my ends.

In sum, the oil is a great product that I will use until the last drop and I feel very comfortable recommending it if you're looking for extra shine, moisture and more manageable hair. Prices vary greatly online, so you'd be best off shopping around a bit to find the lowest price point. Let me leave you with a small video of my shiny hair in movement to really demonstrate the effectiveness of the Diamond Oil Glowdry products. Cheers!
