Joyride with Bedhead

Bedhead JOYRIDE Texturizing Powder Balm

I can remember when TIGI launched the original Bed Head product, which was (and still is) 'a hairstick for cool people'. I think that was about 12 years ago, and since then Bed Head has developed from just one wax stick to a whole range of all sorts of products for your hair. The latest product is JOYRIDE. The ad campaign says it's for 'thrill seekers', and call me an old fuddy-duddy if you like, but I don't really know how comfortable I am with … [Read more...]

Not Just a Hairspray….

Five Fab Hairsprays

Many of them are familiar, but I can't say I have ever used hairspray to hold my clothes in place before... Hairdtrade.com have done some research into all the wrird and wonderful things we use the humble can of hairspray for, other than keeping our hair in place.“It’s great to find out that your essential hair products can also help around the … [Read more...]

Paul Mitchell’s Ultimate Color Repair

Paul Mitchell Ultimate Color Repair range

Quinoa. What is it with this stuff? Gillian McKeith  (her that flaked out on I'm A Celebrity creating some of the best TV ever) extolled the virtues of quinoa years ago on that programme she did on Channel 4 when she looked at people's poo. Then we all started eating it (the quinoa, not the poo!). Except me. I just can't. I will eat pretty much anything else, but this stuff, I just can't get into it. Now, as well as eating it, we're using it in … [Read more...]

label.m Therapy Rejuvenating Oil Mist

label.m Therapy Rejuvenating Oil Mist spray

This is someting new! Hooray! label.m have added a Rejuvenating Oil Mist to their Therapy range - that's their haircare for hair like mine - totally ruined! This new Oil Mist is a really ultra-fine, illuminating Oil treatment, based on their best-selling Radiance Oil, but just a super-light version. The purpose of this Oil Mist is to protect, nourish, fight frizz and add a luminous shine. I'm going to be honest here - I have tried SO many hair … [Read more...]

Aveda launch Be Curly Masque and Co-Wash

aveda Be Curly range new products

Aveda launch two new products into their Be Curly range in the next two months - Be Curly Intensive Detangling Masque and Be Curly Co-Wash. The Co-Wash comes first, in July, and here is another one of those products that slightly baffles me. A co-wash - any co-wash, there are quite a few out there now - is a sort of half-shampoo. I'm not entirely sure what this means. It still washes your hair, but it just doesn't lather as much as a normal … [Read more...]

Pantene UV Protection Spray

Pantene UV Protection Spray

Summer can play havoc with your hair. Not the summer we've been having, right enough, although the rain is a heck of a frizz-causer. But ACTUAL proper summer, can cause havoc with hair. We all know the sand gets in it, the chlorine and the salt water can damage it, and strip the colour from it. But the sun can also damage our hair, drying it out, so we get that attractive straw look that I have sported on more than one holiday!But enough is … [Read more...]
