Good evening my lovelies!
As I have naturally unruly curly/frizzy hair I am always on the look out for any products that will make keeping my hair under control easier and quicker, whilst also saving me from frying my hair everyday. As I've said before I'm a firm fan of John Frieda's three day straight heat defence spray (I will get round to doing a proper review on it soon I swear!), as this not only protects my hair from the wrath of my ghd's, but also saves me from having to straighten it properly everyday. However, I would still love to find a product that can survive washes and prevent me from having to spend so long straightening my hair once I've got out the shower...
So when Charles Worthington released their 40 day straight home hair straightening kit for £20 at Boots I thought all my prayers had been answered!
However, as I picked up the version for coloured hair to put into my basket I noticed the box said 'not suitable for light ash blondes' and also warned it could be damaging to your hair...so not wanting to risk what it might do to my hair colour or condition, which is hard enough to keep up already, I put it back. Since discovering my hair colour was unsuitable for that kit, I've come across two other home straightening solutions for coloured hair, which seem even more too good to be true as they are both much cheaper, last longer, don't say they are unsuitable for light ash blonde shades and claim to condition your hair- what more could you even want in life!? The first one is by JoBaz from Savers for around only £4 I think...
This one claims to last for a whole 3 months too and says it also hydrates and strengthens damaged hair, which would be perfect as after dying my hair blonde and using heat tools on it all the time I like to do whatever I can to keep it in a good condition. The second one by Scott cornwall is slightly more expensive at £10 from Boots...
This one claims it can also last up to 3 months and comes complete with a Keratin phase for ultimate hydration, which again is exactly what I'm looking for. What bothers me is why the £20 Charles Worthington one might possibly damage the colour and condition of my hair, whilst the very cheap alternatives claim to only strengthen my hair and not affect its colour? After scouring the internet for reviews on these two cheap alternatives to see if they live up to their claims and finding nothing at all, I'm going to appeal to any of you that may have tried or heard of these products to tell me if they are in fact too good to be true or if I should stock up on them immediately?
In other news I handed the last of my essays in today (Thank God!) and now just have an exam to revise for in a couple of weeks, so I'm having a nice night in with trashy tele and a cup of green tea, bliss :)
I hope you're all having super lovely weeks!
