Im in Aus ATM where babyliss isn't a common brand. I want the big hair but would need to wait until Xmas and my next Uk visit. Far too impatient sooo...

Has anyone used a big hair alternative and would you recommend it?

Going to bed now so TIA.

I did wonder what this was as love hair products, ebay will post here and pretty good price as its 46 pounds cost at argos.

might invest in one too

Can't someone post it over for you?

I'd be happy to help but I'd need to have it delivered to my home as I won't be in town for a good while yet - I live in the sticks!

Or try ebay uk for a seller who will post worldwide. if they don't ask - lots do but just haven't thought that someone abroad might want one! I did that recently with a handbag that is now happy in Sydney! Just make sure you pay with paypal so you are protected.

It is in Aussie, look for VS Sassoon rather than Babyliss. It's available at priceline, myers etc etc for about $80

grin it is the same product, I'd looked at all the amazon/ ebay etc options too so was over the moon when I found it.

If you can already make a decent shape of drying your hair, I wouldn't bother as ime the 'big' effect only lasts 5 mins and you're left with rat's tails the rest of the day.
Plus it tangles horribly and snaps your hair. Just saying.

Thanks everyone!

I could get someone to post it but it's just easier to buy it myself.

That's great peas! I kept seeing that one and thought it looked the same but didn't want to buy something rubbish!

Whatswrong I can't blow-dry my hair to save my life. It's either a pony tail, ghds to straighten or pay someone to do it for me!

Just to update I bought the vs big hair at target today and I'm looking forward to testing it tomorrow. Thanks again.
