Hair Care: The Good, The Bad & The Alright


You know when you just nip in to Superdrug because you need tampons or cotton wool or something just completely boorrrrrring, then you get side tracked by colourful bottles and fancy offers? Yup. That happened the other day. I literally popped in for a quickie (eh up) and ended up spending around 20 quid. That 20 quid included these bits and bobs which I'd hoped would keep my hair all mermaid and such, but alas, all these products didn't turn out to be as great as I'd hoped. Insert massive sigh here.

So let's start with the GOOD. Which is the Fudge Urban Crisp Pear and Sweet Vanilla Dry Shampoo. As my hair is such a massive ball ache to wash due to ridiculous drying times and styling, dry shampoo has been my sally saviour of late. I tend to spray it in before bed so I don't have the granny chic grey patches the next day. This dry shampoo from Fudge Urban is a good smell and a good product. It does what it says on the tin and leaves a lovely scent in your hair for a few hours afterwards. I always begrudge paying for dry shampoo for some reason, so waiting for weeks to get this on offer. It ended up costing about £2.50 which isn't too bad, but I am a little disappointed about the size of the can. Plz be bigger but the same price thnx.



The BAD.

I was SO EXCITED when I caught a sniff of this new Schwarzkopf got2b Mind Blowing xpress Dry Styling Spray (try saying that after a few gins), but guhhhh it's HORRIBLE. Granted, I've only tried it once, but once was all I could bear. It didn't seem to shorten the drying time of my hair, and left it a massive WOD of matted crap. WHY ME, WHY?? I got so fed up trying to rectify it, I put it in a plait for a few days before I could summon up the energy to wash my hair again. I feel like my £2.50 (yah,this is on offer too) would have been better spent by just THROWING IT IN THE BIN rather than giving it to the cashier to buy this. Blah. 

I'll try it again, one day, when I get double doggy dared. Maybe.


The Alright:

I bought the got2be All Star Styling Cream out of intrigued and because it claimed to be 10 products in one. Yes, I'm a marketers dream. It smells nice and is a relatively mediocre products. I'm also quite disappointed that it boasts to do 10 things, but non of those things are heat protection. Which you'd expect really considering that most ways to style your hair involve heat. Saying that though, it does seem to hold curls in my hair for a few days afterwards and add a slight sheen to my hair. I wouldn't repurchase it, but I'll use it for now.
