One thing that blogging has made me do is want to try new products so I can compare them and blog about them.

Before I started this blog, I generally bought whichever shampoo and conditioner was on the best promotion.

Lately, I’ve been spending a few extra quid on better quality ones to see the difference they make to my hair.

I have very dry, dull hair. It’s thick and brittle and the frizz is uncontrollable. My hair is wavy, with a few ringlets and many fly aways. I have to straighten it otherwise it looks like a bale of hay strapped to my head. No jokes.

When my Tresemme shampoo and conditioner ran out, I had a look on Amazon for my next hair adventure.

I cam across this Bed Head duo pack. At £20 for both, it is a tad on the expensive side, but you do get 750ml of product in each bottle which will probably last me 2-3 months, washing my hair around 3 times a week.

I first discovered Bed Head at the Birmingham Clothes show I went to when I was 14. They were giving away bottles of their products randomly to people in the crowd and I came away with some form of styling product that smelt like coconut.

These products both smell like skittles.

They are supposed to help recover your hair and the pair is aimed at dry, damaged and dull hair. Perfect for someone like me, with long hair that’s probably over abused with heat.

The shampoo did make my hair shiny, but not as smooth as the Frizz Ease Flawlessly Straight range – which is my current champion of all hair products.

That’s another reason I like to write about my hair products – it gives me something to look back at and compare results. I’m starting to see what products are work the best for me.


While this product was great at softening my hair, it’s still not knocked John Frieda of his pedestal. I’ll have to see if my next choice of shampoo and conditioner gives him a run for his money!


What’s your favourite hair care product?

    Your hair looks great, I wish I could get mine to look that healthy and long! I also love the idea of shampoo that smells of skittles, despite you saying its not as good as others. I’m easily swayed…

      Skittles is a good argument…

    Bed Head used to be one of my absolute favorite products!! I love the smell of their sprays! I haven’t used them in ages and now have a sudden urge to go to a hairdresser and buy a few bits and bobs!!! 🙂

    It’s been awhile since I’ve used any Bed Head products but they make a hair wax in stick form that I really like.

    I lovw TIGI. I’m currently using the oatmeal and honey but I use whatever I can get of their products in TK Maxx, its so much cheaper!

      I’ve never tried the oatmeal and honey one!

  8. November 6, 2014 / 3:28 pm

    You have such pretty hair! I’ve never tried the Bed Head products. Biolage is definitely my favorite brand of shampoo and conditioner 🙂

    Your hair looks in great condition really lovely and shiny. I really try to change my shampoos and conditioner every couple of months as it gets used to the product. Favourites are those that are sulphate free. Lucy x

      It’s not bad – it’s just the ends that are ratty!

    You’re hair is so long 🙁 I’m trying some sulphate/ paraben/ alcohol free shampoo and conditioner at the moment, as of yesterday.

    Your hair looks really healthy for that length! I have yet to try Tigi or John Freida but have seen both brands here. I will keep it in mind when my current shampoo finish.

    I’ve just discovered the wonder of Frizz Ease, and it has been saving my hair this cold and rainy week 🙂

    Great photos! I’ve actually never used Bed Head products before…but I do love the idea of a product that smells like Skittles! Yay!! I’ll have to check these out. I use Aussie Miraculously Smooth Conditioner to keep my hair super moisturized. Works wonders for me as my hair is SUPER picky! I also am adding a pinup themed rose conditioner to my beauty brand very soon that peeps are going to love.
