Review: Babyliss Pro Argan Oil Set & Bambino 5510 Hair Dryer

I received some awesome Babyliss Pro products from ry.com.au to trial and review. After a month and a bit of trialling these products, I'm finally ready to share my thoughts.

Ry.com.au is an online beauty and haircare store. They stock a very large range of brands and products, and also regularly have special offers and promotions. So I'd definitely recommend checking them out (if you haven't already), and I'm not saying this because they've sent me stuff to review. I have personally purchased from them before, and they are amazing.

I was sent the Babyliss Pro Argan Oil haircare set, which contains a 350ml bottle of shampoo, a 350ml bottle of conditioner and a 100ml bottle of oil treatment. Ry.com.au also generously sent me a Babyliss Pro Bambino 5510 Nano Titanium hair dryer.

Babyliss Pro Argan Oil Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner

For reference, I have oily roots and dry ends. I have balayage (black roots to blonde ends), and so my ends have been bleached to death.

I believe I have done a very brief review of this in an empties post 4-5 years ago (and I wasn't very impressed with it). I thought I'd start with the scent - I love the nutty, musky scent of this duo. Unfortunately, the scent does not linger in my hair after it dries.  

The shampoo does not lather very well. However, if you rinse off and re-wash, it lathers up beautifully. Once rinsed, my hair does feel quite nice and moisturised - it feels relatively detangled. However, I think this may be a bit too moisturising for my roots, as I find my hair getting quite oily on day 2 and 3, and extra dry shampoo is required.

Whilst the conditioner is somewhat moisturising, it is not enough for my dry, damaged ends. My hair feels nice and silky when the conditioner is rinsed off, but once my hair is fully dried, it ends up feeling... well, dry (and sometimes even frizzy). I have had to slather on a hair masque on top of the conditioner to help boost hydration.

Babyliss Pro Argan Oil - Oil Treatment

This oil treatment has the same/similar nutty scent. However, I do wish the scent lingers longer than an hour in my hair.  

I love that it is packaged in a plastic bottle rather than glass, as it makes it far more travel friendly (and great for clumsy people, like me).

I love this oil treatment, as it de-frizzes, smooths and even adds a bit of shine back into my locks without weighing it down. What more can you ask for in an oil treatment? 

I can't seem to find the Babyliss Pro Argan Oil Shampoo, Conditioner and Oil Treatment set on ry.com.au. However, you can purchase them separately - the shampoo and conditioner are currently on sale for $15.80 each, and the oil treatment is also on sale for $26.60.

Babyliss Pro Bambino 5510 Nano Titanium

This hair dryer is aptly named with the words "Bambino" and "Nano" because it's so cute and tiny.

It comes with a diffuser and a concentrator nozzle. It has a 1200w motor, removable rear filter and a dual voltage switch, so it can be used anywhere around the world. It only features two settings (heat and speed - i.e. so if you select "I", its a lower speed and heat than "II").

It's a bit hard for me to review this properly, as I've been absolutely spoilt using my brother's amazing Parlux hairdryer - I keep unfairly comparing the two. 

However, I must admit that this Babyliss Pro hairdryer is a fairly powerful for its size. It is a simple little hairdryer that is ideal for travelling. Would I purchase this for everyday use? Probably not. It lacks a "cold shot" button, which I love to use. Also, the Parlux hairdryer has ruined me forever. This Babyliss Pro just does not compare. Although, I would probably pick the Babyliss Pro over the Parlux if I was an avid traveller with limited luggage space/weight restriction. 

You can purchase the cutest travel friendly hair dryer on ry.com.au. It is currently on sale for $44.95!
