I could honestly set up shop with my current haircare shrapnel…
My hair is naturally curly and frizz-prone (plus unnaturally bleached), and I’m forever on the hunt for a quick fix solution. I’m INCREDIBLY lazy with my hurr day to day; as in I wouldn’t possibly dream of heat-styling it daily pre-work or the likes. And subsequently there are very few products I’ve yet to try in the quest for finding out Victoria’s Secret.
And so I repurchased my Babyliss Big Hair. This is most definitely a love/hate styling tool, in which pretty much all my friends regard it as beyond useless whereas I’m addicted to it. I’m honestly so happy to have it back in my life; it was my sole styling tool when backpacking Australia a couple of summers ago… And I’ve developed a nostalgic grá for it like no-other.
Mine died a death earlier this year, and even with my Instyler and trusty GHDs, I’ve been totally lost without it. I use the Babyliss Big Hair on damp hair, and it smoothens, (more or less) straightens, and gives a whole lotta volume with minimal effort. My kinda buzz. I picked this up in Sam McCauleys earlier today (the Sandycove branch) where it’s currently on sale, but it’s also easily available through the likes of Boots and Argos etc.
On my way home from work, I made a pit stop at my local Boots, where I had an online order ready to be collected. Earlier in the week I succeeded in one area of my life out by combining my ten million Boots Advantage Cards and pooling the points…. and somehow I had over forty euros worth. Consequently I’m now the proud owner of two new hair care products (amongst other crap!).
I ordered a Bleach Reincarnation Mask, which I’m super excited to try out. My hair turns literally African Camel with conditioners and masks, as in it absorbs and absorbs like it ain’t no thang. This Bleach one is cheap and cheerful, and if it’s anything like the Bleach Silver Shampoo, I’ll be super impressed. I’m actually always trying to repurchase the aforementioned shampoo but it’s consistently sold-out. It seconds only to Shu Uemura’s purple shampoo, (but is a mere fraction of the price).
Finally I eventually remembered to order a Charles Worthington Volume and Bounce Texturising Spray. According to many a beauty blogger (Amelia Liana, Fleur DeForce etc) this is an identical dupe for the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray.
The Oribe spray is apparently what makes supermodels super. Obviously I therefore need it in my life, BUT my issue lies in the area of kinda having too much texture in my hair. I don’t want to miss out on the catwalk mane vibes, but I therefore can’t quite justify parting with seventy euro. Que the Charles Worthington spray, which will let me see what the craic is before taking the plunge. Know what I’m sayin’?!
