Beat Winter Hair with UMBERTO of Beverly Hills

When winter comes my hair lacks oomph.  It doesn’t respond well to the typical treatments and while frizz may be less of an issue static, dry, brittle hair and flat hair are my worst enemy.  I have found ways to survive but now I have some new ways to treat these problems that I love.  UMBERTO of Beverly Hills hair products I have seen on the shelves at Target but never tried.  I just didn’t know much about them and didn’t want to spend the extra money on another product that didn’t work well.  Oh ye of little faith.

First I tried the UMBERTO Beverly Hills Collagen Pre-Shampoo Treatment ($9.99). You put it on before you shampoo.  Just apply it to dry hair, saturate the hair and leave on for about ten minutes.  Then shampoo in the shower and go about conditioning and styling your hair.  This treatment helps to eliminate frizz but also leave hair smooth, shiny and silky.  It infuses hair with hydrolyzed collagen to work this magic and yes, for me, and my fine hair, it worked.  I wasn’t crazy about the smell which was slightly floral and then later it had more a “treatment” scent but it wasn’t overpowering. It is an affordable treatment that left my hair soft but still able to work with and added shine.  I was quite pleased.

Next, I tried the UMBERTO Beverly Hills Volume Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner ($8.99 each or $14.99 for the set).  Using Soy proteins to nurture and protect hair from harsh chemicals and cold weather plus sunflower seed extract, Vitamin E and Jojoba protein to restore hair’s health the duo works well alone and together.  I found that the shampoo and conditioner really did add volume while keeping my hair from becoming coarse and unruly.  Each time I used these two products together my hair was smooth, shiny and way more manageable than normal.  I really love them and will definitely be using them again in the future.  They come in travel sizes too which is great for testing and travel.  Another great thing about this set is that it didn’t matter how many days in a row I used them, the results stayed the same with more volume in my hair and a shinier, softer appearance and feel.  I will note that the conditioner is thinner than expected and if you have a lot of hair it may take a lot of product to get the job done.  However, on my fine, medium-length ‘do it worked with a nickel-sized amount.


UMBERTO haircare products are available at Ulta stores, Target and Target.com.  There are many other products in the UMBERTO collection from various shampoo and conditioner formulas to shine sprays, volumizing spray and hair spray.  All work well too.
