Umberto Giannini Backcomb In A Bottle



I'm a fan of big hair, big, big hair. Despite not having massively long hair, it's thick & it's heavy so I'm always ruffing it up to restore the volume. I backcomb layers & hairspray each one, but not only does this take time & effort, it also makes my hair feel gross, unmovable & not to mention isn't great for the health of my hair.

Now I've been looking for this stuff ever since Kelly posted about it's damn right amazingness, but alas, it's ben sold out in all my local Boots. So when I got an email asking as a little Christmas gesture if I'd like to be sent a bottle as I'd been finding it so hard, I was over the moon. Sadly it'd been sitting in the Royal Mail depo for some time as it couldn't fit in my mail box & I must have been out & about when they attempted to bring me this little can of joy, so when my star of a mam went to go pick it up for me I was done with waiting & couldn't wait to try it. I loved it from the first try & knew I had to spread the word.

I've just had my hair cut & coloured & whenever I go to the hairdressers, no matter where I go I always feel that I'm walking out of the salon with crazy flat hair, so I thought, prime time to show you the wonders of this product. The first picture is obviously my post salon pancake hair, next is after I've sprayed the Backcomb in a Bottle through a few sections of my hair & juzzed it up with my fingers & finally, the third picture shows the results of a little more of the product through my hair & a blast from the hairdryer with my head upside down. Voila, volume! Bloody love this stuff!

I've just purchased this product and love the volume it gives, although I've found it does make hair a little crunchy!

I bought it the other day and tried it for the first time today and it just doesn't work for me! I don't know why. I haven't tried putting my hair upside down and blasting it with the hair dryer.. Maybe I should try that xx

Ohhh love the idea of this as my hair is getting so long and it ends up looking abit flat on top towards the end of the day!

So this could be perfect!

Oooh I love the effect it had on your hair...I may need to get myself some of this coz my hair is in need of a boost! Thanks for the great post and pics xxx

Vicky said...

I picked this up a few weeks ago and I've only used it twice; not finding it gives me much volume yet so I think I need to try it a few different ways... either that or my hair is too heavy :( xoxo

@ abbie & vicky - I like to hairspray my hair as well to keep the volume once I've gotten the desired look with the backcomb in a bottle, I find this helps it hold the volume better! xx

Oh wow this stuff definitely looks amazing, but it's so hard to find!!

Lauren said...

I NEED TO TRY THIS!
Like you, I haven't found it anywhere :( xx

This stuff looks like wonders!
I normally use the Schwarzkopf Dust It, as much as I love it; the more I use it, the more I find it has minimal control & only lasts a couple of hours or so!
I've read so much about this 'Backcomb in a Bottle', but you're the only one so far who I've seen that has posted pictures and it looks UHMAZING. Think I may need to try and hunt down a bottle, if what you say is true!


I also love the cut of your hair! It is realllly pretty.

This is not so much about the product- but I just love the whole look/ texture of your hair. I was unsure what to do with mine. This might well be it xx
