Revlon Uniq One All In One Hair Treatment - review


I went to review this product last week and then held off after seeing so many raving reviews of it: I didn't love it so much; was I missing something?

After another week of use I can confirm that I don't love it, so I guess I'm in the minority on that front - if the online reviews are anything to go by (see eg

Still, you can only go by what works for you, and this one didn't stand out.

Revlon claims/product details:
  • A leave-in hair treatment spray that gives a host of benefits to all hair types
  • Provides 10 benefits, from shine and frizz control to colour fade protection and UVA/UVB protection
  • Adds shine and silky smoothness, plus enviable body and volume
  • A great detangling spray 
  • Enhances styling possibilities and manageability
  • Perfect for repairing dry and damaged hair; also works to prevent split ends
  • Improves health and texture of hair
  • RRP $15.99 for 150ml, but do shop around


As mentioned, I didn't love this treatment.

It's a bit of an odd one because although it's in a spray bottle and is applied that way, it's actually a white cream. I don't know how that works in a spray bottle, but somehow it does. I normally spray some into my hand and then apply it through my hair, concentrating on the ends.

It has a very strong, masculine smell - like a cheap men's aftershave - and it feels quite heavy on the hair. This heaviness is what I don't like about it: it weighs my hair down and leaves a thin film over it, making it look quite dull. For this reason it also reduces the time between washes (because it makes my hair look and feel dirtier), so it's not a product I plan to keep using as a leave-in treatment, now that I've given it a good go. What I'll do with it is use it as a hair mask in the shower, just to get some use from it.

In terms of claims, yes it does manage frizz and it's a good detangler etc, but due to the heaviness of it, I don't think it improves texture or shine. It does feel as though it adds a protective coating to hair (and therefore helps hair that's dry/damaged like mine), but at the expense of weighing it down.

I wouldn't buy this but I'm glad I've given it a go, particularly since so many people rave about it.

Have you tried this? What did you think if so?
