review: TRESemmé Heat Tamer Spray

This post should probably be prefaced with a quick backstory: I’m really, really low maintenance when it comes to primping. Despite the fact that I’m writing an entry for a beauty blog, and I love my gorgeous friend Chi Chi (who also happens to co-run this blog) to death… I just can’t ever bring myself to spend more than 5 minutes on making myself look “good,” especially on a daily basis. At least with makeup anyway…. Most days I can’t even be bothered to put on eyeliner or mascara before work. Yeah, I wasn’t exaggerating. But there is one thing I can justify breaking my 5-minute-primping rule for: straightening my hair.

I must say, it took awhile to truly appreciate it, but I do love my hair. Naturally curly, it grows fast and fairly strong but not too thick. It’s curly enough that if I let it dry naturally I’ll get volume and some ringlets but nothing crazy; yet, it’s not so finicky that I can’t straighten it in under 20 minutes and notice a huge difference between my natural hair. Like my makeup, I normally can’t be bothered to spend more than 5-10 minutes on a hairstyle before pulling my hair back in 2 clips and calling it a day. But, for whatever reason, I’m decidedly less careless about my hair than my makeup. To see the rest of the review and pictures, please click the cut!
