It is a volumising mouse that comes in a fine spray and is to be used on wet hair, it even has a built-in heat protector for blowdrying and heat styling.

It comes in a plum colour can, not too attractive but it really does the job.

Wednesday, August 15th, 2007

Ghd Travel BagGhd’s happen to be my favourite hair straighteners and with this travel bag you get so much for your money. Even though summer is on its way out, this summer travel bag is ideal for all year round. It includes the versatile ghd straighteners, that come in their own heat resistant pouch, ghd shampoo and conditioner, a heat protector for your hair, a sea spray and a polishing serum.

You will also receive a matching cosmetics purse, a DVD showing how to create the look and a thermal heat mat. All included within the price. We have talked about the travel bag before but I thought it was worth another mention since it is now available for £130 from Amazon.co.uk instead of the original £145! The best thing about ghd’s is that they don’t just straighten your hair, you can also use them to give your hair a wave, bouncing curls and flicks.

Cowboy Hats!

Friday, August 3rd, 2007

Cowboy HatWith summer finally here and summer holidays to look forward to for those lucky few, you will be needing to take extra care with those locks as we don’t want to go into winter with sun damaged, brittle hair! The best way to do this is to try and avoid UV rays getting to your hair, as it will dry it out especially if you have highlighted or bleached hair! The only way to successfully do this is to sit inside all day or to wear a hat (I advise the latter!)

This season’s trendy cowboy hat makes it easy to protect your hair and look cool at the same time! Lets face it they do look the part on the beach and what’s better they keep your hair from sizzling! The straw will also keep you cool, much better than those thick sports caps I used to wear and will guard your face from the rays! There are many shops that sell cowboy hats, however I like this one from Accessorize with a cord tie and shell detail for £20.

Tony & Guy Straight Range

Thursday, July 19th, 2007

Tony & Guy StraightWhile flicking through this weeks issue of Closer Magazine I stumbled across an advert for Tony & Guy’s new ‘Straight’ collection. I was instantly drawn to the advert because the model was staring directly at me and she had one of the funkiest haircuts I’ve seen in a while. Obviously their advertising campaign works because I was enticed to look at the products!

The range is available at Boots and consists of Straight and Protect Shampoo and Conditioner, Shine Enhance Shampoo and Conditioner, Straight and Shine Balm, Iron It Defence Spray, Rubber Shine and Finishing Shine Spray. Products are specifically designed to maximise the straightening effect and protect from heat damage of your dryers and stylers. Prices range from £4.99 to £6.99 and all can be bought separately.

L'ANZA Reflex Flex Hold Memory Mist

Monday, July 16th, 2007

Art Elements Reflex HoldA girlfriend of mine recommended this L’ANZA product to me and it really is fab! The spray is a very fine mist which you spray on wet hair and dry into place; repeat if you’re being energetic and want a longer-lasting hold. It also contains preservers, which prevents your colour from fading keeping it vibrant and longer lasting.

You can also spray it on dry hair for curling or straightening and the ‘Thermal Guard’ protects your hair from heat trauma from styling tools. The best bit for me though is that it is advertised for being the first and only styling formula that protects hair from all 3 UV sun rays (UVA/UVB/UVC – UVC being the most damaging), so a real must for your summer hols for those of you who like me, have to have a hat perched on the top of your head to stop your hair looking and feeling like straw!!

I bought mine from Hair Supermarket – not cheap at £18.95, but lasts ages and well worth it!
