Once in awhile I get an eye-opener. Usually I’m able to try the hottest new items out there from great beauty brands, and when I was offered the opportunity to take a look at Quantum Micro V products I thought this was no exception. Little did I know that Quantum Micro V has been on the Canadian market for more than 25 years! Whoops, where have I been? Since I am unfamiliar with them I wouldn’t doubt that many others have not tried these products before either (or I’ve been living under a rock).
Based in Montreal, Quebec, Quantum Micro-V even has a few stand-out products that are industry favorites among stylists including their maximum hold gel, Fix Gel. Now ready for 2011 with brand new packaging, it’s time to take notice of Quantum Micro-V!
I was sent a great selection of Quantym Micro-V products, so many in fact that I shared some with family and friends over the holidays. I have been using the Bio Actif Daily Care shampoo and conditioner exclusively for about 2 weeks now. Perfect for daily use, Bio Actif Daily Care shampoo and conditioner keep your hair clean and protected for everyday styling. If you are looking for fruity smelling hair products with coconut undertones…keep looking. Quantum Micro-V is hair care for grown-ups, used in salons for decades now and scented with that I can only call a ‘salon-scent’ because I have no other way to describe it! It smells of clean…fresh. Preserva Color Care shampoo and conditioner is perfect for color treated hair, and Protectif Moisturizing Care gives extra moisturizing attention to damaged hair.
Among the other product we were sent was Quantum Micro-V Heat Shield Thermal Protector. I use this before blow drying and/or flat ironing my hair. Just spray when wet, comb through and continue as normal. It’s also highly scented and again no fruity smells here.
I had it on my hair one day and while driving in the car I couldn’t figure out where the new scent was coming from (cologne? perfume? lotion?) then realized it was my hair! Then again, I am pregnant so maybe it wouldn’t be as noticeable to others, but I liked it.
Other products we tried included Finale Forte Maximum Hold Finishing Spray and Sequence Weightless Styling Foam (both of which I gave to my mom when I was home during the holidays) and Sculptor Styling Glaze which my husband and son both use to create messy, spiked, styles. That’s another nice thing about the scent of the products – both men and women can use them.
It’s also worth noting that along with Quantum Micro-V’s new look, comes more eco-responsible packaging with up to 70% post-consumer recycled content.
