I have been so behind on this post, since there were many new Holiday hot releases, I had to put back this post. Matty Conrad is a well-known hair stylist and hair educator for men and have been working with leading brands like Bumble & Bumble, Toni & Guy and Schwarzkopf Professional. OSiS+ is Schwarzkopf Professional’s styling division, and these are some of the products with the collaboration with Matty Conrad. These new products are a must for man’s grooming essentials. I had received to try out two products from the collection – OSiS+ PLAY THOUGH & OSiS+ MIGHTY MATTE. Both products are designed to help craft and hold essentially any look for men.
Up first is the OSiS+ PLAY THOUGH
(C$22.00 each for 6.75 fl. oz) is an ultra strong waterproof gel, the texture is lightweight yet thought enough to hold the look all day long. My son just turned 9 and he is getting into the getting his hair styled, and most of the times he was disappointed by how his look would get ruined after playing soccer or after gym time. When I received these products I knew who would love to put these on test. I must say he was amazed and loved the product dearly, the texture is pretty flexible so you can get enough time to style the hair before it sets into an ultra strong hold. It doesn’t set white or too tough on hair, as well as there is no sticky feeling at all. It became my husband’s and son’s latest obsession, they both have totally different hair texture – my husband carries a very light weight, feather like hair and my son have a nice textured hair and this Play Though Gel have been working like wonders for both of them. What they like the most is the lasting power and not feeling stiff at the same time.
Up next is the OSiS+ MIGHTY MATTE
(C$21.00 each for 2.8fl. oz) is an ultra strong matte cream which is extremely Ultra strong matte hair cream. This is perfect for those with oily hair and for those rough shiny days, it give hair an intense texture and separation that lasts all day long. It has a very strong matte effect and the texture light weight. But you have to be careful with the amount of product you use, I would say a little goes a long way. Try to start with a pea size amount to work with damp hair and you can add more product until you get satisfied.
Bottom line I haven’t tried the products on my self only because both my husband and son were too obsessed over the products that I couldn’t get my hands in any of them but I have been styling my son’s hair with them and I loved how it works neatly and stays input for the whole day. The new OSiS+ range is available at Schwarzko Professional Partner Salons.
