Borghese Hair Care Review

Borghese Modena Moisturizing Shampoo & Borghese Modena Moisturizing Conditioner have a light, warm scent that I can’t really put a finger on. It seems like there is a hint of vanilla, although it doesn’t really SMELL all of vanilla. There is something else in it, but I’ve never smelt a combination like this before. I really like it.
The Modena Moisturizing Shampoo Enriched with Aloe and Pro-Vitamin B5 provides deep repairing moisture to dull brittle hair and restores body and sheen. The Modena Moisturizing Conditioner provides smooth feel and shine to dry hair. Improves color depth and longevity and protects against heat damage while styling.
These leave my hair silky smooth, very easy to manage, and not weighed down like some moisturizing shampoo’s. I really love that I don’t have to wash my hair daily because it doesn’t make my hair oily. Even on the third day, my hair looks the same as it did when I washed it. This is from someone who must wash hair daily, usually.

Borghese Milan Volumizing Mousse. The Milan Volumizing Mousse offers outstanding volumizing benefits to straight hair and smoothing defining benefits to curly hair. I really really like this mousse. It is light and doesn’t make my hair stiff, although it holds extremely well. It is easy to use, and doesn’t take too much to get the job done. I have used this in two different ways and it worked perfectly for each.
I used this on slightly damp hair and crunched it up. It made my hair look like I just came from the beach with perfectly amazing waves. The only other hair product that I’ve had WORK on making my hair wavvy (I have naturally straight hair) is Aussie Sprunch, and although I liked it- my hair felt stiff and never once budged an inch.
With this mousse, I can get the acquired wavy look without the hassle of having hard, non-moving hair. It looks perfectly natural and yet holds as well as a hair spray would. I love it!
I also use this before blow-drying and it makes my hair have tons more volume and looks so sophisticated. I have never had this from a mousse before. Most of them didn’t hold very well. This mousse is very foamy, and doesn’t have a problem mixing in my hair.
This is an awesome volume mousse, it works very well. My hair is in the middle of being fine with a little volume to it, but not enough that I don’t want more at some points! Besides adding volume, this works very well to speed up the blow-drying process. It makes the blow-dryer work so quickly!

Borghese Giovanni Volumizing Hair Gel 6 FL OZ

The Borghese Giovanni Volumizing hair gel is infused with botanical oil and Pro-Vitamin B5 provides super hold, high shine and superior humidity resistance,
Directions: Rub a small amount between the palms of your hands and apply evenly to dry hair. Comb through and style as usual.
Out of all the hair gels I have tried in the past, this one is the VERY best. The other hair gels would make my hair stiff and it wouldn’t look naturally styled. I hate my hair being stiff, so therefore I didn’t keep with the other gels. This hair gel has a very strong hold but doesn’t make my stiff.
Other hair gels would take a long time to dry and my style wouldn’t stay in place before the gel would dry. This gel dries very quickly, letting my style hold in place without being stiff and knotty.
It smells the same as the shampoo and conditioner which is a warm light scent with a hint of vanilla. This gel is very high quality but yet doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I love that the names of the products are so unique and classy.

Borghese Salermo Silking Hair Oil
The Salermo Silking Hair Oil with passion-fruit seed oil encourages healthy hair growth, improves shine and color depth. Restores moisture to dry, limp hair. I love this. I have used plenty of Hair treatments/oils that claimed to tame the frizz in the summer months and reduce the amount of static, but haven’t yet found one that didn’t leave my hair oily, greasy, and looking like it hadn’t been washed in a week.
This is perfect. I can use this when I’m blow-drying, straightening, or just letting it air dry. My hair has never once felt oily or greasy, and it still has it’s just been washed look. It tames the frizz (even in the sweltering heat).
Most products that help tame frizz also make my hair greasy and look unwashed. This Hair Oil never has. I put it on my hair when it’s damp, and it only takes a dime size amount to go over my entire hair!
I can use this before I blow-dry and it looks like my hair has been professionally salon blown dry. My hair still feels lightweight and I can’t think Borghese enough. It’s hard having oily hair and finding products that don’t add to the oiliness.
I can also use this before I let it air-dry and my hair still looks shiny, smooth, and manageable. Even without blow-drying it, it still doesn’t add any weight to my hair, and doesn’t make it look greasy like other hair oil’s.
I really like this Hair Oil, and I recommended this to my mom. She recently got her hair permed and it tends to frizz out a little. So, when she put this in her hair, she had nothing but curls. No frizz, static, or fly-aways!
I love the packaging that these products have. I’ve never seen any hair products in brown bottles. They look so classy and stunning. These would be perfect for a hair salon, because they are the highest quality yet don’t cost an arm and a leg.
All the products have a clean spa scent. And none of the products are over $20. I love that these products are so cheap, yet they have the quality of expensive products, and work just as well, or even better.
Have any of you tried any Borhgese hair care products before? What did you think of them?
