I wanted to write a quick post about two products I have been using recently.
Big hair style
When is a brush not just a brush? When it’s a hair dryer and brush combined all into one! I wanted to add some volume to my hair Kate Middleton style and although I own a very good hair straightener I wanted something that I could use everyday without damaging my hair. I’ve been a bit worried about using my flat iron too much and burning it out so decided to use it only once or twice a week and then use something else instead. Anyway, after asking a friend of mine how she got her hair looking so nice, she told me about the Babyliss big hair rotating brush. It pretty much does what you would expect from using a blow dryer and hair brush together but it makes the job easier. You see, because the two are combined you only need to hold it in one hand and direct your hair in the other. When your arm starts to ache you can switch hands thus making the job a lot faster. I now use the Babyliss big hair styler during the week to give my hair volume and I am happy with the results.
I love this straightener
Last but not least, I want to talk about my Cloud 9 Straighteners. I have mentioned them before on this blog when they won an award. I was a big fan of the old style GHD straighteners from a good few years ago. I had them for a long time and was quite upset when they finally died. I nearly rushed out and bought a replacement straight away but at the last minute thought I should double check the reviews to see what they said about the latest GHD irons. Although they still got good reviews, imagine my surprise when old school owners like myself were complaining bitterly that they were nowhere near as good as the previous model. Fortunately after reading more reviews I noticed that cloud nine straighteners were being mentioned a lot and people were saying that they were a lot like the old GHD model. It turns out that they were started by people who used to work for GHD. I’ve had my cloud nine flat irons for a few months now and although they are not exactly the same they are actually better than my previous straightener, so if you are in the market for a new straightener then you should definitely check this out.
