The Roller Revolution

I am quite frankly deeply in love with these rollers. This could be because I love a new hair product (especially ones that deliver) or maybe it’s because they are so easy to use. I can’t actually believe us girls have been going this long without these little beauties.

I took small sections of hair around my crown where I wanted some volume, hair sprayed and rolled. I didn’t even need to secure with a pin due to their handy Velcro exterior – they stayed in all on their own which is surprising as I have very thick and heavy hair.

I must admit I haven’t actually slept in them yet – I merely wore them for a few hours before I went out to give my crown some root lift. I would definitely recommend popping them in all over after you have blow-dried your hair, making sure the hair at the root is completely dry. Using a diffuser on the end of a hairdryer, warm up the rollers all over your head, hairspray and leave to cool. Once the rollers are cold, unroll and brush through gently for soft curl, body and lift. You can always tease (backcomb) the root of any of the parts where you want more lift. *Just remember you need a soft brush to easily brush out back combed hair. Alternatively, do exactly what it says on the tin and wear them in bed as well!

The price? I bought a pack of ten rollers for £9 which I feel is a reasonable price for something I wanted to try out. The pack of 20 rollers with a drawstring bag retail at £17.95. I would say they fall on the more expensive side but having tried them I do think they are a product worth having. If anything is going to make your hair look better in the morning, these are it. I would recommend these to people with fine hair as some body and movement always makes hair appear thicker and more healthy. These are also great for beginners as they make rollering your hair fuss free. Give them a go.

* Backcombing doesn’t damage your hair – heat and neglect is to blame. So with that in mind always remember to brush out your backcomb with a soft bristle brush for tangle free tresses as dragging the wrong brush through knotted hair will cause you lots of problems!

Making Waves

One of my new year’s resolutions is to pay a bit more attention to my hair. I am very lazy with my hair and I’d much rather spend time on my make-up! As you can see from this photo, my hair has a natural wave to it and it’s also quite fine so any product that’s too heavy just weighs it down. I wanted to try and find a spray that would enhance the waves but also keep my hair feeling soft. I’ve used mousse and other sprays in the past but they’ve always left my hair feeling sticky, which I cannot stand.

Whilst having a quick fix of the QVC Beauty channel the other day, I saw that they had the guys on from the Percy and Reed salon in London (Fran gets her hair cut there, posh!) Adam demonstrated the texture spray and I knew immediately this could be the one!

The girls at Space NK in Cobham had good things to say about the range and after I had a quick spritz, the first thing I noticed was the most amazing smell! The texture was light and non-sticky and I was also pleasantly surprised by the price, £14 for 150ml.

I think this could be a staple item for me as it’s so easy to use and it gave me a good result – I didn’t even have to blow-dry. I just wanted a product that would work with my natural waves and I’ve got it in Percy & Reed’s Texturising Spray.
