Remington Straightening Brush Review

Remington straightening brush review

I’ve been straightening my hair for years now and I’ve used a wide range of flat irons and products along the way, but I’ve never used anything like the Remington Keratin and Argan Oil Straightening Brush. This straightener is a plug in device which straightens and smooths while you comb it through your hair just like using a normal paddle style hair brush. I was sceptical at how this would hold up against my beloved GHD’s, however I’ve found it does a few things that my GHD doesn’t. Continue reading



Remington Silk Italia Hair Dryer

The Remington Silk Italia Hair Dryer is my new favourite beauty tool. Nothing improves my mornings more than being able to dry my hair quickly and having it look and feel soft and silky before I rush out the door to work. For the past year or so I have gone through a range of pretty terrible hair dryers, including one which literally caught on fire while I was using it! So, when I was given the chance to try out this new Italian made Remington dryer I couldn’t wash my hair fast enough! Continue reading

IMG_1130

Dry shampoo is an essential for me and I’ve finally figured out the best way to use it. If you struggle with oily hair like me and really don’t want to be washing your hair every single day then I’d be surprised if you don’t already have a can of this stuff sitting on your dresser. However, if you just haven’t managed to try it out yet I strongly urge you too, it’s a game changer.

How to stop washing your hair everyday

stop washing your hair

This year I had a goal: to stop washing my hair every single day. Since I was about 14 years old I have been a mega over washer of my hair due to the extra oil brought on by being a hormonal teenager, and thats where the habit began. Now at 24 my hair is a little less oily but the habit has remained. I wanted more time to sleep in, less time with my hair dryer and to impose less damage on my hair. I was also off on a holiday to Thailand and didn’t want to spend my days washing, drying and styling only to rinse and repeat the next morning.

The challenge started with a purchase of dry shampoo. I chose Bastiste dry shampoo which you can pick up from the supermarket and Farmers. I took this along with my hair oil, heat protectant and Tangle Teezer and decided I would try and wash my hair every third day or every other day.

Have you heard that saying where people say Continue reading



Trend Alert: Grey Hair – Yup I Went There!

Grey hair seems to be everywhere at the moment, I love it but I wondered, can I pull it off??! Before now it seemed to be a colour that you wouldn’t willingly dye your hair to be. Blonde, yes. Red, stunning. Purple, trendy, Green tips, so Kylie Jenner! But grey…. Β However it seems that going grey isn’t just for the ladies down at the local bridge club or RSA anymore!

I first spotted one of my favorite youtubers Samatha from Batalash rocking the ashy grey hair look. She looks stunning with it, but the thing is, she always looks stunning! I started to think about making a change from blonde to a grey more and more, but I couldn’t help thinking if it was just that I like the colour on her or whether I actually really liked the colour and would like it on myself. Has anyone else had that problem? Continue reading
