IT Factor Quick Blowdry Shampoo and Conditioner Review

Quick Blowdry by It Factor

It Factor Quick Blowdry Shampoo and Conditioner is touted to allow you to obtain beautiful hair in less time. But do they stand up to the test?

According to their website, these It Factor products are free of harsh sulfates, sodium chloride, alcohol, and parabens (plus, plus, plus and plus) and are safe for colored and even chemically straightened hair (okay, two more pluses).

The company website also served up that the It Factor Quick Blowdry Shampoo gently cleanses without stripping hair and contains protective anti-oxidents, nourishing rose hip and hydrating sea kelp for healthy, shiny hair. The It Factor Quick Blowdry Conditioner is formulated with Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, Wheat Amino Acid, and Panthenol (Vitamin B5), which helps infuse and retain moisture. 

The key to how these products work seems to be their VaporBoost system, which is designed to help reduce drying time. So, I challenged the duo to a test with own my untamable tresses.

My Take:

Having naturally coarse hair I used the "Medium to Coarse" version of both products. By first impressions, the packaging is well designed and has a petal soft touch with fancy gold foil on the logo and product name. Impressive!

As I lathered up, rinsed and conditioned, the  scent was not overpowering, in fact was quite pleasant. I would have assumed that it would have been quite "girly" based on the powdery pink packaging, but I was pleasantly surprised. 

I did feel smoother texture, especially when combing through my mane before starting my blow-drying. But the proof was really in the timing as I went through my regular routine. I did manage to shave a few minutes off of the process and did end up with hair that felt noticeably softer and less course to the touch. Bravo!

So, in a nutshell this It Factor Quick Blowdry duo stood up to the challenge. The only downside is that I wish the tubes held more product. With my amount of hair, I'll rip through these little numbers in no time!
