Gielly Green Boutique Collection

I have a Repair Set from Gielly Green that I have been testing out since a month I believe and am seriously impressed with how lovely and manageable it's made my hair hence had to tell you guys about it.

Gielly Green is a boutique brand and is only available from their website and their salon's I believe. Their Repair Set is targeted at damaged, dehydrated and colour treated hair, a criteria that applies perfectly to mine. 

Coming to the packaging, I like the way they have managed to make it look lush yet practical at the same time. The shaded brown packaging looks quite expensive yet is incredibly light to carry around. 


The Repair Shampoo has a very satiny consistency and foams up pretty well considering that it contains all natural ingredients.

It feels quite nourishing on use and I could immediately tell it was detangling my hair in just few seconds. Another great thing about this is how it did not dry out my scalp at all. I suffer from severe dry skin around the scalp area and am usually quite fussy when it comes to hair products in general.

It left hair quite soft and tangle free in the shower and to be honest I did not feel the need use any conditioner, so I only used a bit on the ends and I was good to go.


The Argan Rescue however is their star product in my opinion and one that I have never come across in my history of tried and tested hair products.

Now my hair is slightly frizzy, thick and wavy. What this is is a temporary quick fix that detangles, eliminates frizz, adds shines, vanishes split ends (temporarily) and makes hair look and feel 'healthy' instead of the usual overtly glossy feel that other serums deliver.

Best of all, although it looks like a very thick oily serum when pumped out, it absorbs into the hair so well that there is not trace of oiliness on the hair or on my fingers. Hence all hair types would be suitable to use this. 

It contains Vitamim E and C and of course contains Argan as its main ingredient. For £19.50, it's a revamp for your hair in a bottle. I'd say opt for this in between hair cuts, when you feel your mane needs a lift. 


The Repair Mask is my second favourite product after the Argan Rescue. I usually don't use both of these together as one is enough to do the work, otherwise I'll end up in too soft and silky hair which I find difficult to inject volume in. 

I like to use the Repair Mask once in few weeks time when my hair feels 'meh' and I apply it after the shampoo, in place of the conditioner and leave it on for a few minutes, lets say 10-15, after which follows a slightly long process of getting it out of the hair as it's texture is quite solid. They call the texture 'mud' and is apparently a mineral and oil mix. 

It's all worth it though as the amount of shine and manageability it adds to my hair after blow drying is great. The effects last for until I wash my hair next which is absolutely great. It is slightly on the pricey side as you get 200ml of product for £29.50 but if you have the cash to spare, I would highly recommend you try this out for yourself. 

On second thoughts, the Shampoo is not a must-have when I compare it to the Argan Rescue and Repair Mask.

On the whole, the luxury range is great especially if you like experimenting with your hair colour and texture, this would be a great one to revive and rejuvenate it after and in between treatments. 

Oh and I forgot to mention, all the products have a gorgeous lemongrass smell to them, quite citrusy and fresh and slightly spicy.
