Review - Asda Dry Shampoo

I have been using dry shampoo for as long as I can remember. There has been many an occasion when it has come to my rescue and saved me from a hair disaster. I remember a time when the only dry shampoo that was available was the original Batiste. Nowadays however, there are loads of options on the market and today I am trying out Asda's offering!
The first thing that I noticed when trying this out was how nice it smells. It is a really fresh, fruity smell and leaves my hair smelling great. You apply this like the majority of dry shampoos, spray it on your roots, give it a rub and then style.
I really like this dry shampoo, it does exactly what it should do and gives me another day without having to wash my hair. It adds a nice amount of volume to my hair and doesn't leave any horrible white chalky powder either.
One of my favourite thing about this dry shampoo though is the price, at only £1 it is a bargain and I will definitely be popping it in my basket next time I am in store!

Review - W7 Hair Chalks

When I was offered the chance to try out the W7 hair chalks* I jumped at the chance! I have always been not very adventurous with my hair. I have always wanted to dye it some crazy colour but unfortunately my work is boring and you are only allowed natural hair colours. So the W7 hair chalks seemed like the perfect solution to my problem though! 
I was sent the colours Peach Red and Purple to try out.

The chalks were very easy to use, you simple take the section of hair you want to colour place it on the chalk and squeeze as you pull it down the length of your hair. Once I had done that I sprayed some hairspray on the sections to seal in the chalk. I did find that it pulled on my hair slightly though and could be a wee bit sore. 
The very name, hair chalks, suggests that this is going to be a messy product to apply so I would definitely recommend applying them over a sink or bath and to cover up any white/light coloured clothing you might be wearing. The style of clip applicator definitely kept the mess to a minimum though and made them very easy to apply.
I was surprised at how well the colours showed up on my hair as I thought they would only really work on lighter or blonde hair. Both colours were easily noticeable and quite bright in my hair. 
Both colours lasted well too, the purple faded slightly faster than the peach red and I had lovely pink bubbles when I washed them out of my hair the next day!

Overall I really like the W7 hair chalks. They are a fun, cheap way to brighten up and change your hair ready for the summer!
