A few weeks back I had a moment of hair care madness in Space NK and ended up making two stunning, but marginally bank breaking, purchases in the form of the Living Proof Prime Style Extender and Oribe Dry Texturising Spray. How the boyfriend did not stop me in my tracks I don’t know, but I have no regrets as styling my hair has now changed for the better!
Let’s kick this off with the worlds tiniest and most expensive little can – the Oribe Dry Texturising Spray is £18 of amazing scented, matte textured goodness. I have a serious love-hate relationship with this stuff only because of the price – it’s like spritzing away money… But I was feeling pretty spendy at the time and was dying to give it a try! Price aside it smells gorgeous and gives your hair a lovely lightweight, matte texture.
And then we have what could possibly be a holy grail hair care item. The Living Proof Prime Style Extender has been smoothed over my damp post wash hair every time without fail since it’s purchase. If you’re a no frizz, sleek hair lover like myself then this product will probably be for you. After applying a generous amount all over I blow dry my hair straight as usual, and that ladies, is where the magic happens. Normally I would need to use a hefty amount of product and straighten my hair post blow dry to stop my hair curling again, but with this my hair just stays exactly how I want it. I even tested this to the extreme last month when we went to Edinburgh – even sporadic showers and 30mph wind throughout the day couldn’t tempt my hair back into it’s naturally frizzy state! It’s love, that full on – can’t give without it, good hair days for life – kinda love!
So, what have we learnt from this experience? 1) It is possible to spritz away money (the Oribe spray can join the Diptique candles in that arena), 2) that Living Proof are a brand I need to invest in, and 3) the boyfriend is useless at preventing spendy purchases…
