A product I discovered through Rubybox is Poker Straight Flat Iron Protection shine mist from Lee Stafford. I am not much of a hair care girl. My hair care buys consist of shampoo and conditioner (and I believe a good conditioner is key). I buy Rubybox as a cheap way to get cosmetics I would never buy, but also to expose me to new things I would never think of trying. This was definitely one of those. I loved it so much that I went out and bought myself a full size one, thereby defeating the aim of saving money. In effect I am spending more, because I used to blow dry my hair just fine without this product. And now I believe I need it.
It is a watery mist you spray on your hair. I have no idea how much you are supposed to use. I just give one or two spritzes per bunch of hair. It is supposed to protect your hair against the heat. But it does so much more.
Why I like it:
- It smells nice
- It makes your hair feel soft and shiny
- Your hair shines more
- Your hair is easier to style. It straightens more easily and stays straight a bit better.
If I blow dry my hair I spritz a bit on the wet hair before I start. If I use a hot iron I spritz a bit on the dry hair just before I iron it.
It costs about R100 for a bottle. It can only be found in Clicks.
Where has a hair straightener been all my life? I am not sure whether this is just one really, really good brand or whether I would like them all. It is on my list to try another brand as well.Here is a review of the entire range, and a review of the spray. Here is an interview with Lee Stafford.
