I don’t know about you but I go through phases of loving my crazy, unruly curly hair for a while, because it’s my natural hair and so much easier to maintain than straightening/styling it every day, and then there’s phases where you won’t see me out and about unless I’ve spent an hour getting my hair into a straight, perfectly curled kind of way.
But I’m notoriously lazy.
Like, I can’t be bothered playing with my huge array of makeup things because, well, it’s just effort. Even when I go out, I don’t bother with putting on much makeup. But that might also be down to the fact that I have oily skin and nothing really sticks (and I end up smudging it anyways once I’m drunk and carefree/-less). Same goes for my hair. I’m way too lazy to give a crap about my hair – most of the times. So up my hair goes in a knot even though I hate my billboard-sized forehead. But lazy wins over vanities – at least most times.
But recently, I’ve been loving to style my curly hair, and the reason why is Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly Finishing Touch Cream.
I bought this by total, complete idiotic accident. Like not in a “this looks interesting, let’s give this a go” kind of way. I was looking for a hair mask because I don’t see the point of using a conditioner, when I can use a hair mask.
And I spotted this for £1 and I think that’ll be the reason why I just grabbed that little tub. A hair mask for £1? From Herbal Essences that always smells divine? FUCK YES!
So I got home, uber-excitedly unpacking my “prey”, until I spotted its label said Finishing Touch Cream. Oh bollocks, I thought, I can’t be bothered with that. But what the heck, right, I already bought it, I might as well try it.
And BOY AM I GLAD I DID.
I love it so much, the next time I was in the same store, I bought 3 tubs straight away.
Because it makes my hair look awesome. Not in a “ohhh you look like you’ve spent a lot of time making yourself look impeccable”. I don’t really like that look anymore, or at least not at the moment.
This finishing touch cream is more than just that. It doesn’t just make my hair shine or whatever, it gives my curls perfect definition. DID YOU READ THAT? PERFECT DEFINITION!!
When you have curly hair, more often than not, it’s not the beautiful curls you see in magazines or on telly. It’s messy, it’s frizzy, it’s unruly, IT’S A LOT OF FREAKING EFFORT. Which is why I’ve always resorted to the “I tie my hair up and stop giving a crap” look.
But now, I get excited about doing my hair. I used to avoid washing my hair, telling myself it was healthier for my hair anyways. Getting up earlier in the morning to do my hair? WORST. KIND. OF. NIGHTMARE.
But now? You’ll find me happily jump out of bed, and get excited about doing my hair.
Because whatever I do to it, as long as it involves this Herbal Essences Tousle Me Softly cream, I’m gonna be ok. No, scratch that, I’m gonna look freaking awesome (at least in my book).
So, my little grasshoppers, if you have curly hair, THEN GET YOUR ASS DOWN TO THE NEAREST SHOP THAT DOES HAIR CARE PRODUCTS AND GET YOUR HANDS ON THIS, RUN HOME AND BE AMAZED AT WHAT YOUR HAIR CAN ACTUALLY LOOK LIKE.
