Sod the Big Hair - I have a Babyliss Waving Wand and that really is good
I don't get the rave reviews that the Big Hair gets, I am quite adept and blow drying and turning under my hair already, so I think that's probably why. However I picked up a waving wand in Tesco (half price about £15) and it's totally fab. I now look just like Cat Deeley - well I don't, but my hair looks like hers. It took a little while to get the hang of it, it doesn't have a clamp like curling tongs you just wind your hair around it (heat protecting glove supplied). I defy you not to love it.
No no no no. Big hair - ok, it's pants for my hair. My new miracle is heated rollers! Wash hair*, dry hair*, comb hair (all whilst rollers are on), roll rollers into hair and secure, go throw breakfast and the kids, drink some coffee, grabs your things, undo all the clips whilst going out the door - bingo.
I have no idea how you are suppossed to curl the last inch with a wand
HalfTermHero every time I see your name I think of my friend who always manages to suggest really good activities that fill whole days and tire children out during half term. She is my real life half term hero!!!
I remember my mum used to have a great thing. Put lightweight rollers in your hair - then put on a shower cap type thing, plug a long tube into a hair dryer contraption on your hip and walk around with it and the heat stays in the cap. I must google and see if you can still get them - tis bout 30 years ago.
