What I can’t leave the house without …

kiehls creme silk groom hair style-thumb-300x460-74006Anyone who knows me will find it somewhat hysterical that I would be writing about my favourite ‘beauty’ product.  I’m one of those girls who considers mascara and lip-balm “dolling myself up”.  I’m pretty useless in that whole arena and since having kids even worse.

The only ‘area’ that I did try and spend a bit of time on was my hair — not because I love it all styled but because (as if being born with ‘mousy’ coloured hair wasn’t enough) the World at large also decided I should have that kind of hair that is neither straight nor curly — so, even after spending hours with the dryer and the straightener, it only needs to smell rain to turn to frizz.  Great!

After having a baby I realised life was seriously too short to waste time with a hair-dryer so I cut off all my hair and attempted to go for a Meg Ryan-esque quirky messy look.  It helped a bit but I still had my frizz problem — until my very good friend Caroline introduced me to Kiehl’s Silk Groom.  I get out of the shower, scrunch some into my hair and go.  I haven’t used a hair dryer or straighteners for 3 years and it is solely down to this little bottle of goodness that calms my hair down on a daily basis.  It would now be the one thing I’d save from a burning wash bag (yes – even before my tooth-brush!).

Your hair always looks WAY cool. I must pick up some of this. (I should also cut my hair, because as it is right now I always just stick it up in a messy bun, which is getting quite boring now.)

Gosh, thanks for the tip!
I am def going to try this, my hair is all frizzed up too and i have been using straighteners (abandoned a while ago…) etc…I’d like to stay “natural” so i’ve stuck to my curls, using from time to time Kerastase huile nutritive…

So, now, please tell us how you cut your hair to get the Meg Ryan-esque quirky messy look. 🙂 I want it too. 🙂

The hair issue…. I have curly hair, and I’ve been struggling forever: dry, frizzy, Jackson-Five-esque… I’ve heard of Kiehl’s miracles, I should try this one!
