Bad hair day? I am cursed with bad hair life, and I’m afraid I take rather a dim view of blow dries. They are time-consuming and expensive and, if you have fine hair, inevitably a disappointment because it flops. Oh, how it flops. And oh, how disheartening that is. But that is not to say that au naturel is the answer. In fact, au naturel, past the age of about 33, can make us look unhinged. Like laddered tights.
It all comes down to roots and ends and Babyliss delivers boosted roots (do yourselves a favour and get your hands on a brilliant root booster like Aveda’s Thickening Tonic and then add muscle with dry shampoo even when it’s clean) and smoothed, curled-under ends. When hair is 80% dry, this gently bristled, rotating contraption will add blow-dry style elan in a couple of minutes. Backcomb at your discretion. As if I’d ever travel without mine. You’ll have to tear it from my cold, dead hand.
