Frizzy Mizz

I’m not one to fiddle about with umpteen hair products, and the last time I went to the hairdresser was in June 2014 when I took my Mum and had my own done whilst waiting.
Since living on the boat, our toiletry purchases have had to be multi functional and unisex. In short, this lemon shower gel does all.

Back on the boat after our house sitting, I discovered a bottle at the back of the bathroom cupboard, but obviously we needed to finish the lime one first. I have to say that the difference after just two washes is noticeable, apart from the frizzy ends.

Some years ago, I found a hair serum at 99p a bottle that lasted ages and was every bit as good as it’s £6 branded equivalent.
Sadly that hasn’t been available for well over three years, so I was glad I had a good supply, the last of which I used shortly before moving out of the cottage.

After the lime slime that didn’t shine, I’ve been on the hunt for an alternative and finally I have found some.
Again priced at 99p for a 50ml bottle in Home Bargains (ebay advertises it at £3.85 for the same size or you can order it direct from the manufacturer for £1.99 a bottle plus p&p), it’s Creighton’s Frizz No More, and a penny sized amount was perfectly adequate for my long hair
which used to be dark brown with grey Rogue (X-Men) streaks (if only I looked this good sigh 😦 ).

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
