Get On It! (continued again)

Batiste Dry Shampoo

My Boss: “Wow Amanda, your hair looks amazing! Have you done something different?”

Me: “Oh really? No, I actually haven’t washed it in a week! I’ve just been using this new Dry Shampoo I bought. It’s great.”

My Boss: “Dry Shampoo? What is this? I haven’t tried it.”

Me: “Oh you must. It’s great. You can go ages without washing your hair ‘coz it just absorbs all the oils in your hair and keeps it looking fresh day after day. Even though it’s not. And it’s tropical scented so your hair smells yummy! And like, you can do so much with dirty hair when it doesn’t look dirty, you know? Like, sexy bed hair, every day! ”

My Boss: (Facial expression as if to say : “Gross, Amanda. TMI. I like clean-haired employees. Get out of my office you feral.”)

Available from Priceline for around $9.95 (for a big can)



Revlon Nutri Colour Creme (aka- Colour Ball)

A few months ago, I decided to go red. My hairdresser, on the other hand, had another idea. I walked out with Magenta hair and wanting to die. It was slightly full on. I thought ‘vibrant red’ meant ‘fire engine red’. Not pink….

I spent the next 24 hours pondering how I was going to pull off Magenta hair. The shop assistants in White Suede tried to convince me that there were ‘soooo many colours that would go great’ with my new hair, but I knew they were just trying to make a sale. Not falling for that one, girls.

Now, I’m not usually one to buy expensive salon products (as you may have already figured out). But the hairdresser did tell me to buy this Revlon Colour Ball, as it would keep my red fresh (as red fades badly) and it also acts as a treatment (which my hair was in dire need of). She said all I needed to do was apply two or three pumps of the Colour Ball to towel dried, shampooed hair, comb through and leave for 3 minutes, once a week. Oh, and wear gloves. This stuff stains. Wish she’d told me to cover the basin with newspaper before I turned the sink red. Oops.

I’ve always been a fan of toners, ever since my blonde days, as I know that they can improve and refresh colour. But I never dreamed this stuff would actually change the colour of my hair! Well done, Colour Ball. You have transformed my random pink hair into locks of fire-engine red!

I’m thinking these Balls may be my new favourite toners. Blondes and Brunettes, get on it!

Available from good hair salons.
