Smooth Hair Alert

Hold the phone, for I have found something that makes my hair SMOOTH – note the use of capitals, it’s required. Smoother than smooth. Like polished. So glossy I felt the need to swing it around in a ‘I Whip My Hair Back and Forth’-like fashion just for celebration. A little stalk round Health & Glow the other day ended with the L’Oreal Paris Professionnel Air Fix Extra Strong Fixing Spray – a bit of a hairspray, shine imparter and wave teaser-outer three-in-one, more on that at a later date – and the BBlunt Back to Life Dry Shampoo entering the basket, the latter of which was spritzed into my hair after the fastest hair wash in the history of showers immediately as I walked through the door. And well…

I think we’re onto something special here. 10 or so sprays onto damp, freshly washed locks, post-wash, pre-blow dry beefs up my follicles like other with a blast of heat. Full and shiny with a matte-ish finish, it acts almost like a sea spray but without the crisp. Now it does dry the lengths out – a feature most welcomed in my lank and oft-greasy locks – but those with parched ends be warned. A bit of oomphing up, and a tad of the Toni&Guy Casual Sea Salt Spray in the roots is my current hair jam of choice and I’m loving it. Rs.1050 from Health & Glow, I sense my bottle will be nearing the last dregs quicker than you can say, ‘I whip my hair back and forth, I whip my hair back and forth’.
