When it comes to doing my hair I always start with by giving my hair a quick wash and blow dry. Although I don’t tend to be too picky about shampoo, I have to use some sort of volume spray and start by drying it upside down. I’ve recently been using the Babyliss Diamond Radiance Blow Dryer as it has three heat and power settings which I think is an essential for an at home blow dry!

I’ve also been giving the Babyliss Curl Secret a go, after looking at it for a while I’ve finally had a chance to try it and it’s completely unlike anything I have ever tried. If you don’t know how the Curl Secret works you slide a section of hair into the tool, press the sides together and the hair will then get sucked in (it’s not painful!) and beeps when the hair is ready to be realised.

I thought it was going to be a little difficult to use but it is actually the easiest tool I have ever used to achieve curls. The curls you get are quite tight and I don’t feel that you have quite as much control as a tong or wand but it’s so easy to use that I simply don’t find myself reaching for anything else. It’s great if like me, you always burn yourself with a tong and it makes curling the back of your hair particularly easy in comparison. It also has a few different heat and time settings to help you get the curl you want but I still don’t think I’ve mastered it.

A great alternative to a hair tong especially for beginners or someone looking to get perfect curls quickly and easily. It is quite expensive but no more than you would pay for highend straighteners so worth looking into if you curl your hair regularly.

I’m sure I’ll be using it over the weekend

 I can’t believe summer is over almost over, just another few weeks until we can officially say it’s autumn. I had a great August but makeup wasn’t really a priority and it’s reflected in my favourites. Although I spent most the time with bare skin and with dry shampooed hair I put a little more thought and love into my sun care and skin care products and found some true gems which I suspect I will be using for many summers to come. I really over packed beauty items and could probably say 1/3 of my 23kg luggage was beauty related in some way. I obviously didn’t use all of them and instead went for the best bits…

Babyliss Big Hair is one of those products everyone talks about and somehow I had never tried (I have a long list of those products) so I was super excited to try the New Big Hair!
I love voluminous hair but sadly my hair is usually flat and boring however with the New Big Hair you get big hair and a perfect and quick blow dry. It  is a 60mm Ceramic barrel with 3 heat settings and ionic condition to leave hair shiny.
I like to rough dry my hair first before going in with this, starting from the bottom and working my way up in sections. It rotates left and right which means you can hold is any way. Although it is quite big it is also very light making it easy to use.
The New Big Hair by Babyliss is availbale from Argos with the rest of the Babyliss Big Hair range.

Have you tried the Babyliss Big hair range?
