X Factor Hair in Numbers

Now we know who won, it’s time to turn our attention to more important matters – like what goes into styling an entire series of X Factor hair. Backstage TRESemmé hair pro, Jamie Stevens and his army of ten assistants, had the busy task of prepping over 130 different do’s and that was just the girls. Post-final, Jamie shared the stats with GLOSSYBOX and the sheer product-power involved is impressive:

– 220 cans of Ultimate Hold Hairspray were used to fix, finish and hold
– 88 24hr Body Plumping Powders provided instant root lift and matte volume throughout the live shows – 15 of those were dusted over Fleur East’s hair alone
– 1,400 grips were slipped into hair throughout the series
– 54 bottles of Heat Defence were used to prep and protect contestants’ hair
– 124 bottles of Youth Boost Shampoo and Conditioner were emptied in order to recharge contestants’ dull and dry locks

In the aftermath of such intensive styling, TRESemmé’s Renewal Hair & Scalp 60 Second Treatment Shots and Nourish & Renew Scalp Tonic are the perfect antidotes, reviving and refreshing performance – or party – weary hair and scalps. And that’s why we’ve given every Glossy one inside their December box. The combination of tea tree extract and sunflower seed oil helps nourish the scalp and adds shine to hair, helping to maintain that all important swoosh factor over the festive social season.
