So I was recently sent the Xtava Curling Wand to try for free and I wanted to share my thoughts on it. I also have a little giveaway so stay tuned until the end. I personally love curly hair. It’s always the same isn’t it..If you have straight hair you want curly hair and if you have curly you want straight hair.
My hair has always been bit in the middle. It doesn’t dry completely straight, It has a very unflattering fizziness about it. So whatever I do, I have to do something to it else I just end up with a frizzy ball of hair on my head. I usually opt for a natural loose curl, I don’t ever go for the perfect curl, Purely because my hair is pretty short so it does me know favours what so ever. So I was very excited to receive these to try because at first glance they seemed perfect for my hair type. Continue reading “Xtava Curling Wand Review and giveaway!”
I’ve having abit of a hair crisis at the moment. We’ve fallen out and not on talking terms because it just won’t listen to me. I want it to do one thing, It wants to do another. Whilst browsing the isles of Tesco the other day for some tea, I noticed this newish range from Tresemme, It’s the Perfectly Undone Range. When It comes to hair, I don’t like it all sleek and shiny. I usually opt for a ‘bed head’ look. Sometimes on purpose, Sometimes…Not. So I picked this up along with a curry for tea, of course! this product has really helped me and my hair see eye to eye. I’ve tried my salt sprays and various products that claim to give you ‘effortlessly beautiful beach waves’ But it never really works. One of them being the very expensive bumble and bumble Salt spray which was Meh, okay, But not amazing. Don’t get me wrong I used it all up, It was £24, Of course I was going to, But I didn’t repurchase. This is a fraction of the price and I think its amazing! I scrunched the mousse like consistency into my damp hair and left to dry and It left my hair looking, well, Perfectly Undone. Least it’s done what it says unlike most products! What I like most is it gives it so much texture! My hair normally gives up on life after washing and becomes floppy and lifeless so you can’t do anything with it, It refuses. But this seems to add texture and a little hold also. However, I do think if you over did it, You could possibly end up with crispy hair, So use it sparingly. Less is more, After all. I did this on saturday and It’s still going pretty well and still has so much texture. I think I need to go and pick up the rest of the range aswell now! You can pick it up here for around £3.95 at sale price so if you want to check it out, Do it before they go up to £5.78!
So if you’ve read some of my previous posts, You’d have seen my hair was blonde/brown ombre. Don’t get me wrong, I loved it, But I’d had it for around a year and half and was getting bored. It was starting to go slightly brassy toned on the ends, so I though it was time for a change. I decided I was going to dye my hair a nice dark chocolatey brown. Now i know what you’re thinking. “your hair isn’t brown in that picture above”. More on that in a second.
So off I went to pick up a hair dye. I picked up Nice and Easy’s Darkest Natural Brown. I knew it would come out dark because of the swatch guide on the back, but I never thought it would come out this dark! I put it on, left it on for around 20mins and washed of hoping I’d see lovely brown locks. Unfortunately it wasn’t how I expected. It was black. And I mean black. There is not a hint of brown in there! Now even though it didn’t come out as expected I do quite like it. I never thought I’d like black hair. It always looks good on others but I always though it would look ridiculous. But surprisingly, I do like it. It might fade after a few washes but for now I have black hair. woo.
