Umberto Giannini Curl Friends Flirty Curls Scrunching Jelly

I have the biggest hair ever. And its thick, and long, and curly. This means that since being a teenager if I have had my hair cut too short I look like a have a triangular poodle on my head. However, this product not only smooths my curls down into calm waves and ringlets, it also softens my hair. A lot of styling products make hair very hard and even sticky, but Umberto Giannini keeps your hair feeling natural, but stops it being a state. The packaging is very bright; a lovely hot pink and its style very simple, kind of the opposite on what hair the product is designed for. It’s a simple tube which you just squeeze, and for the price you get a lot of ‘jelly’. On the packaging it says, ‘Long lasting curl creator for defined sassy smooth curls.’ It sounds customer friendly because it doesn’t make you feel your fighting your hair, rather embracing it. It also smells quite sweet so it doesn’t make your hair smell harsh like some hair sprays do, and is quite subtle. It looks like a normal gel, and is see through. Although it doesn’t make your hair sticky, it does leave your hands feeling like they have glue on them, so I advise you to wash your hands after, but I think thats the only downfall. Curl Friends also has the option of a smaller, travel size package which is perfect for your handbag, but also you can you buy the smaller (and cheaper) option to find if it works for you hair as a kind of tester....

BaByliss Pro 230 Hair Straighteners

As a big ghd convert I’ve always been reluctant to try any other straighteners – before ghd I had Remington and Braun straighteners, but these did nothing compared to my ghds! So, could BaByliss convert me again.
