I am trying to achieve a bit of a more polished look. I am not too bad with covering the basics: my nails are usually polished, I've finally found make up that actually stays on my face past lunchtime in the office and I got a few bits and bobs for my wardrobe. My biggest issue is my hair. I have grown it a bit past shoulder length. It is in not too bad condition, I've had a very decent haircut too. The problem is that it gets very frizzy very easily. I call it "messy straight", it looks ok for about half an hour after I leave the house. So I want to tackle this. Should I get straighteners, the babyliss thing or is there something else out there that I am completely unaware of? TIA
tea my hair is the same. I can blow dry it all nice and think I'm looking good and then catch sight of myself in a window or something and realise my hair looks a right mess. I now do use straighteners every time I wash my hair but I pull them under and lift at the roots so as not to get that 'flat' look. I have thought about getting the baby's big hair thingy too and had it in my amazon basket yesterday! Instead I bought a new hair dryer (my one was getting too hot anyway) and decided to see how I do with that. I already use argon oil and I don't think it makes a massive difference, but I do think my hair is still better for using it. That loreal extra ordinary oil is supposed to be good and I thought of getting that after my argon oil had ran out.
I have a few argan oil things for my hair too. I have over £50 to spend on my boots card (stealth boast ) so I'll maybe treat myself to the babyliss thing. I've never been a fan of straighteners look, it doesn't really suit me. So babyliss, hairspray and loads of brushing it is then.
