The Quest for Bouncy Hair.

I've caught the bug: bigger is definitely better. 

I've dabbled in the odd bit of back combing or occasionally put a few curls in with straighteners, but it general I tend to wear my hair straight. Ironically, if I left my hair alone, I'd have a head of the tightest corkscrew curls you've ever seen...I'll leave you to work that one out. 

It all started when I decided to use my friends curling wand before we were went out for a impromptu drink, it was love at first curl. Far less uniform and 'prom' than curling with a straightening iron, not forgetting it is so much easier. 

I went out the next day and bought one...

The Bellazza 1 inch Curling Wand to be exact. 

It's not fancy, it was from TKMaxx for £19.99 but it works wonders. 

Add the Umberto Giannini Incredible Body line into the mix, and I'm left with bouncy hair to rival Kate Middleton. 

I simply run some Old School Setting Lotion* through my hair on a brush before blow drying, then again spraying some on the brush and running it through my hair before curling. 

After I've curled my hair, I then spray a liberal amount of the Root Boost Volume Spray* through my hair in the roots and through the curls for good measure. FYI: this is incredibly similar to the infamous 'Backcomb in a Bottle', the ingredients list is almost identical...

The Results? 

I think we're on the right path...
