Turn Waves into Filthy Curls - Umberto Giannini Filthy Curls Scrunching Jelly

I have always been cursed with in between hair. It is not curly and it is not straight, for years I used to tell people it was kinky! *cringe* 

I never quite knew what to do with it because the straightened-within-an-inch-of-it's-life-look does nothing for my face shape and when I curl with a hot curler it doesn't hold well. That is until I discovered this product. 

How I use it: 

I wash my hair in the shower as usual and when I get out I towel dry it I then take about a €2 coin amount on my hand and begin scrunching it into my hair. The texture is a bit sticky so do wash it off your hands after. I continue to scrunch it a bit while doing my make up and let it dry naturally. I think they say the best results are from using a diffuser but I just couldn't be arsed with all that messing about!! Then I let it dry and stick some serum on it when it is done. 

Anyway, I digress, what I love most about this product is the fact that even if my hair is dry (to touch) and frizzy and I can't do anything with it, a splash of water and a little of this sorts it right out. It does require a serum or a defrizz spray after usually. 

The Verdict:

All in all I do not know what I would do with my hair if it weren't for this product. It is available in Boots in the UK and Ireland and you can get it in a trial size so I would suggest getting the trial size to try it out and be sure before committing to a full size version. I actually carry around the trial size in my bag, just in case I have to go somewhere important to go and I haven't had time to do my hair before I leave. 

Have any of you tried out this product? How did you find it? Have you any tips or tricks or posts about any similar products?

I think I had this before but it was in a pale pink tube maybe? I didnt really get on too well with the stickiness but might root it out again and try your method.

I have in between hair as well and hate when its straight on me yet I have to put rollers in for a night out if I want it to look "done" and smooth etc.

For day to day wear I bung some mousse in it, blast with hairdryer to half dry and throw it up in a bun. Id love to be able to leave it down but it looks like a mop!
