Christmas Haul :)


20121227-210850.jpg

So Christmas has passed so we’re all left with that guilt of Christmas dinner and a wad of money. As soon as Boxing Day hits, so do the sales and in the first day alone, department store Selfridge’s made over 1.4 million pounds. I decided to go Hair product crazy and used the £40 from Christmas to treat myself to some new hair products, and a few make up extra’s I had to nab in the sales! Will review once I’ve used them a bit, but here are the items and their prices!

Dry Shampoo Anyone?


This morning I had peel myself from my bed with (Shock horror) greasy hair! I had no time to rush into the shower but, in the back of a draw was a can of Batiste Dry shampoo. I’ve got Clean & Classic, which was great. When I sprayed it into my roots, my hair looked white and ghost-like (freakout)! But as soon as you scruff up your hair and brush it back out, no one will know you faked that soft I-just-Came-Out-The-Shower look. Theres loads of different dry shampoos, Lee stafford is also quite good (if not a little bit pricey).

Heres all the Dry Shampoo’s avaliable from Batiste, £2.99 : Cherry, Spicy & Sentual, Wild, Clean & Classic, Coconut & Exotic Tropical, Dark & Deep Brown, Big & Bouncy XXL Volume, Light & Blonde and Floral & Flirty.

Pros:

  • Great for a bad hair day
  • Relitively cheap
  • Smells good
  • works well

Cons

  • Will only work for roughly 24 hours
  • Unless you brush it out, you may have a weird white mist over your hair
  • Not as good for your hair as the traditional shower
  • Coloured dry shampoos may look uneven
