[unpaid/purchase/affiliate/ad] Much as I love this stuff for giving me smooth and silky hair, I don’t love the application method which is by a nozzle. On the side of the bottle there is a bar that marks how much you should use for each dose, but my hair doesn’t need that much and I’m not sure that anyone else’s does either. You really only need a very small amount to get the results. As long as each strand of hair is coated, it’s fine.

The nozzle is just a bit too generous in output – and you end up using more than you need, while juggling a bottle, a palm full of watery essence and a shower. I’ve started decanting mine into a mister and solved all of the application issues in one (very cheap) go. It’s a much more controllable and effective way to coat the hair before waiting the allotted 8 seconds and rinsing away. I’ve also heard from a couple of people that it hasn’t worked on their very dry and bleached hair – you can use a conditioner afterwards if you think your hair needs it.

I’ve found the Wonder Water for half price on Amazon HERE (£4.95 – so sorry I didn’t spot this before but it’s worth stocking up) and a 3 pack of small misters for £6.59 HERE although you may well have one lying about at home. Non affiliate HERE.
