Pursuit of Prettiness #6
My poor, poor hair. Years of straightening and backcombing, poor diet, lack of nutrients and London pollution have left my already brittle hair in a truly sorry state. I pop pills every day to try and get some life back into my barnet, but it is still far from the voluminous hair I crave.
Early this year, in one of those "new do new me" phases, I chopped off my straggly, dying ends into something resembling a bob. We have a bit of a love/hate relationship- Bob and I. I miss my blanket of beachy waves, but at the same time it looks much healthier than the straggles of bleached split ends hanging limp by my shoulder blades.
My current hair regime is rather extensive, but I can not cut it down!
Shampoo: Clynol Suncare
Conditioner: James Brown (not because it's good, just because it's there...)
Masque: Bumble and Bumble Mending Masque
Serum: Bumble and Bumble Mending Complex
Leave in Conditioner: Clynol Sun De-Stress
Mousse 1: John Frieda Full Repair
Mousse 2: BED HEAD Tigi 'Totally Baked Hair Meringue'
Hairspray: Garnier Fructis Crystal Resist
It seems over the top, I know, and I am prone to product build up, but i'm scared to cut it down. If it came to it, though, I know which product would be last one standing: 'Totally Baked'.
As i've said before (see HERE) I am obsessed with anything sweet smelling, and you do not get much tastier than Totally Baked. The mousse is foamy, not sticky, and one pump is enough to work for my short, fine hair. It provides texture, volume and hold without being too heavy, and it smells like cake... Or lemon meringue pie... Or creamy frosting...
Just don't eat it, okay?
It is not overly cheap, but a little goes a long way and it is salon quality stuff. The RRP is £12.50, but buy it at HQ Hair for £9.37 here.
