' The higher the hair, the closer to heaven'Thursday, July 28, 2011
As most of you all know, I am a BIG fan of Cheryl Cole. She is ultimately my idol and more importantly my hair idol. I absolutely love her look circa 2008 where she rocked a big and bouncy blow dry where-ever she went. It has always been a mission of mine to get my hair that big and that bouncy. Today I may of found the product to help me achieve Cheryl like hair.
So what is this product? It is indeed Batiste dry shampoo XXL Volume. Now dry shampoo isn't the most glamorous of beauty products. It used to be grey, smell strong and was something you used when you'd overslept. Now Batiste has brought out an amazing new range of dry shampoos, the new shades, flavours, etc actually make you not want to wash your hair.
I'd heard good things about XXL Volume and to be honest I bought it and was a little sceptical. Having long hair, I do always struggle to keep my hair 'big'. Lots of backcombing is usually needed which is never good for your hair. Now here's the best bit. When using XXL volume, I didn't need to backcomb at all. Yes that's right no backcombing.
Now I bought my can from Boots for £3.99. All you do is spray it, massage into roots and then brush it out. I never actually brushed it out, I just really massaged so all the grey disappeared. I soon found that my roots were instantly lifted and gave me big hair that I'm sure Cheryl herself would be jealous of! But if you're not going to brush it out like I did, make sure you really rub it in so you don't look like your Aunt Mabel. ( I actually don't have an Aunt Mabel, but you get my drift.)
Now with most products there is a little flaw, this did make my roots feel very odd. Like almost dry. To be honest this doesn't bother me too much as I would rather have big hair.
Would I recommend this product? Hell to the yes. It's worth every 399 pennies and means my days of backcombing may be over! But be warned having this big hair may make you want to walk round with a fake Geordie accent muttering "my hair has it's mojo back." ( Or maybe this was just me.)
So there we have it, big hair and a big thumbs up from me. Have a lovely evening folks :)
