Anyone else feeling a bit flat after “the Christmas”? Yeah me too. But it’s time to squeeze your feets into the party shoes once more. I gotta feeling (woo hoo)…. Tonight we’re gonna party like it’s yo’ birthday (or 1999, depending which generation yer from). No matter how dehydrated and deflated yer feeling, let’s give 2012 a good ol’ sending off.
Speaking of deflated, that’s how my hair is pretty much ALL THE TIME. Seriously. Flat as a pancake. Take a look at our “About Us” pic over in the right sidebar to see what I mean. Velcro rollers, sleep in rollers, heated rollers, BaByliss Big Hair… you name it, I’ve tried it. Eventually my hair always falls flat. Woe. First world problems eh?
That is, until now. Let me introduce you to the John Frieda Luxurious Volume hair styling range, of which I’ve tested the thickening shampoo, conditioner and hairspray. Read on »
Here we go with our second installment of Dolly Rouge’s 2011 favourites. If you missed it, check out part 1.
La Roche-Posay Teint Mineral is a powder compact. It can be used on its own with a sponge for medium-full coverage (oily or combo-skinned ladies), dusted with a powder brush to set foundation, or provide more coverage over sheer foundations (combo-normal skins). It covers redness/imperfections, doesn’t look powdery, doesn’t oxidise, doesn’t budge when faced with oil, doesn’t clog pores and has SPF 25. Consider that all boxes ticked for me! Read on »
My hair is quite strange. The strands are thick and smooth. So much so that my hair doesn’t require any styling to fall straight and sleek, it dries naturally that way. The ends don’t split either, even though I haven’t had a trim in over 6 months (naughty me I know!). Before you curse me, the downside is that my hair never holds a style and as for a curl, only in my dreams. Also, even though the hair strands are individually thick, my hair sheds like bejaysus. It doesn’t make much sense for my body to invest so much building lushious strands for it to throw them away carelessly, but I digress. Because of its dog-like shedding the overall effect of my hair is quite limp, so I turn to a few different products to give it a much needed boost. Here are my fine feathered haired friends:
James Brown Volume Boost Shampoo and Conditioner
James Brown is hair stylist to Kate Moss, who has rather fine hair herself. His Volume Boost shampoo and conditioner contain rice proteins and oat extracts, which should apparently add volume and thickness without weighing fine hair down. Do they work? Read on »
