The best of hair care

I have been using John Frieda products for many years from when I was a red head, to a blonde and now to brunette. And with the classic wavy and frizzy hair that most women complain about, there is not a more appropriate time for the brand to launch it’s latest offering – the 3 day straighening solution of the century! Hairdresser extraordinaire, Kerry Warn, was in Dublin on Tuesday to launch this product along with new Go Blonder and Volumising products. The serum is applied to damp hair firstly, then blow dry your hair as normal and straighten with your hair straightener of choice. Yes this product needs you to apply intense heat for the active ingredients to kick in. I tried and tested the product over the last two days and I am impressed. After two days, my hair is soft and straight. At the affordable price of €6.49, it won’t break the bank. Give it a go!

Accessories buzz!

I’m on a mission to get myself some nice and pretty jewellery for the summer and so I recently found some really cute pieces from New Look which have just come in this week!
