A few weeks ago I was contacted by Carly with AXE to see if I would be interested in trying and reviewing AXE Hair products.
My husband, having used the shampoo, body wash, and body spray in the past was eager to
be a guinea pig try the AXE brand hair styling product. I told Carly that I would love to try and write a review, and I soon received a box containing shampoo and hair styler.
In the past, I had always purchased hair styling products for my husband based on if I could get a deal by using a coupon or finding a good sale. Because of this, my poor husband has been stuck with everything from organic mousse to curl enhancing gel (he does not have curls). Since receiving this hair care package from AXE…or should I call it a hair “rescue” package…I have been banned from purchasing these sale items. The products we received were AXE Primed – Just Clean shampoo, and AXE Whatever – Messy Look paste. I asked him several questions about each item…here’s the verdict.
Q: How did you like the packaging? A: ‘The flip-top on the shampoo is awesome.’
Q: What did you think of the scent? A: ‘I really like the scent of both the shampoo and paste. They smell fresh and clean.’
Q: How did you feel about the shampoo? A: ‘I like that it doesn’t make your hair poofy.’ The paste? ‘It’s phenomenal. It’s not sticky, doesn’t make your hair crunchy, and it lasts all day without having to re-apply.’
Q: On a scale of 1-10 (10 being best) how would you rate each product? A: Shampoo = 8 Paste = 10
Q: Is there anything you didn’t like about the products? A: ‘No. Everything was as good or better than I expected it to be.’
So as you can see, the overall opinion on the AXE products we received was very positive. In my 3rd person opinion, (since I didn’t actually use the product on myself) I really liked the scent, and the way they made his hair look and feel. The scent of the paste was a little strong when hubby used it on my toddler, but I’m pretty sure it isn’t intended for use by toddlers. LOL
A huge thanks to Carly and AXE (you can follow her on twitter @CarlywithAXE or check out the AXE Hair Crisis Relief site) for the opportunity to try and review this product…my husband has now requested that I ONLY purchase AXE hair styling products for him.
