I am really fussy when it comes to my hair, I have tried a thousand different hair care products since my early teens things like overnight creams, serums, leave on masks, gels, hairsprays, conditioners and shampoos. It’s very rare that actually find something that I like and it works, so I decided to write a blog post on my latest hair care buys because I love them! 🙂
Schwarzkopt Got2B 2 Sexy Big Volume Push Up Volumizing Hairspray Now this hairspray is one of my favourites and for a good reason, unlike other hairsprays it is not overly thick and heavy, it is pretty weightless and makes your hair feel like it has no hairspray in at all but still keeps the style which is great!
Another high point of this hairspray is that is smells AMAZING! It smells like a mixture of strawberries and raspberries and I love it. Although for a can of hair spray it is quite expensive (Usually more than £2.50 but less than £5 in different places) but its worth it if you want good looking hair.
VO5 Plump It Up Shampoo
VO5 has always been a brand of shampoo that I have always quite admired and that is because I think they produce some damn good shampoo’s and conditioners! I brought this one the other day because I really wanted a good shampoo that uplifted my hair and made it more stronger and also voluminous. Many hair care brands promise to make your hair more bouncy, stronger, luscious and such but hardly any actually produce such a good product which does what it says. but this one does exactly what it states and that’s why I love it. Not only does it give body and boost for fine or flat looking hair it also has heat defence which is perfect for me as I use straighteners or curlers a lot! I noticed my hair was fuller and more thicker after using it just once the first time so it’s a definite win 🙂
So as you all know I want to be a fashion journalist rather badly, I’m not the type of girl who says it and doesn’t do my research first. Personally I have skills when it comes to researching in depth! But so a while ago I got into writing articles, I started small just writing them for my university online newspaper bearing in mind this is the first time I had ever wrote an article. Now it’s taken some time for my writing style and ability to develop but that first stepping stone of writing my first article for my University newspaper led me to writing more and more, getting good responses and views I found that I had a secret talent for writing.
I am an ambitious girl and tend to think of things I want to do or accomplish that is quite difficult and this being one of them, being a fashion journalist is a lot harder than it’s believed to be and to actually break into the industry is about as easy as smashing an ice cube with a tooth pick – Often one breaks before the other meaning that more than often the person gives up before the industry gives them a chance. But lately things have been going well, I mean there was a time when I thought ‘hmm is this going anywhere?’ but decided to hold on a little longer and after 8 months of writing articles for my University newspaper online I started to get chances to write for published magazines around my University and some amateur fashion magazines and websites which is great! I’m slowly but surely building my portfolio and give it a year and I’ll be applying for a internship and hopefully getting one somewhere fingers crossed!
So that was my little insight into how my journey is currently going, hope you enjoyed 🙂 Follow/Like/Subscribe.
