Tresemme Oh la la

Two posts in a row? Who would have thought I was capable!? Haha.

Hello guys, well I have another hair product review for you today the Tresemme hairspray. Tresemme is a fairly cheap drugstore brand, this was about $3.50 CAD. As you can see the can is very large so all in all a great value.

I use A LOT of hairspray on the daily, like I said in my previous post fine hair does nothing without it. I don't spend a lot of money on hairspray because I don't notice a big difference. I actually keep coming back to Tresemme! It's cheap it doesn't make your hair crunchy which is hard to find in a hairspray and it smells nice.  The hold on this isn't the worst but it's not the best, Tresemme has five different levels of hold as you can see I have #3. It doesn't hold all day I'll be honest but it holds up through my work day which is all I need. 

I don't think I'll be spending much more money on hairspray in the near future as I am content with this. =)

Batiste, the ever infamous dry shampoo

Hello everyone! I neglect this blog but I promise I will try to give it some more love in the new year. Happy new years to everyone I hope you all had a great holiday!

I wanted to talk about Batiste as I am a lady with very fine hair (it sucks) you honestly can't do anything with it, it's greasy after one day it takes about a half a can of hairspray for any style to stick it's terrible really....*dreaming about long thick locks as I type* 

As you can see this is no ordinary can of Batiste no! It's the XXL volume formula "Big and Bouncy" I tested that claim and I don't know if it's my fine hair or the shampoo formula but this did N O T H I N G for me, at all. Zilch, zero, nada.

My hair was as flat and lifeless as before. Don't get me wrong I love this stuff it is a life saver for me, it keeps me from having to wash my hair on the daily actually using this I can go about three days without washing my hair and for a fine haired gal that is A LONG TIME. I am sad that it didn't hold up to the volumizing claim but hey you can't win them all....

Is there any ladies out there who actually have used this and had any luck with gaining volume?! Let me know in a comment!
