Straight 'N' Go* - £9.99 - http://www.highstreettv.com/beauty/make-up/straight-n-go.html
I'm starting off the week with a pretty nifty hair gadget I was lucky enough to be sent a week or so ago. I'd seen things like this floating around the market for a while now, but I hadn't much about them, so didn't think it wa worth me giving them ago. But, spring is on it's way, and I'm pretty sure I can't get away with having my hair thrown up in a messy bun for the rest of the summer.
Basically, what makes this special is the ceramic plates within the brush that straightens your hair whilst your blow drying, so theres no need to use straighteners on your hair too! Perfect for those (like me) worried about the impact of heat on the hair.
And truth is, whilst it might look like a faff and abit of a gimmick, it really does work. Like soo much more than you'd imagine. It takes abit of getting used to, having to clamp your hair between each of the plates, but the effects are totally worth it.
The bristles are really quite smooth, and work amazingly well ad smoothing out your hair, making it lovely and glossy when it's dry.
The plates themselves have little holes in them , making it really easy for air to circulate around the hair, speeding up drying time.
The first time I tried this out, my hair was left lovely and soft, with definate volume. It really did feel like I'd had a professional blow dry! And that was on my first try. After quite a few uses, I've really got the hang of it, and haven't so much as looked in the direction of my straighteners since!
This nifty little gadget is perfect for soo many different reasons - if you're going on holiday and don't want to pack your straighteners or if you're trying to reduce how much heat your using on your hair. Skipping the straighteners won't matter when you blow dry with these!
You can pick these up for £9.99 from highstreettv.com. If I were you, I'd head over to there right now!
