Spending Ban Update 8

This week I broke the ban (so far I don’t think I’ve done too bad, you can see my updates here) I did purchase the gorgeous shoes I had for my graduation that I mentioned last week but I will be having these for my birthday later on in the year so technically not a spend.

I was reading a post on Poppy’s blog (this post) where she said how much she loved John Frieda’s 3 day straight, being a naturally curly haired girl who love’s John Frieda shampoos I practically ran out the door to Asda and left my willpower in the flat. 

My hair has been annoying me at the moment so the thought of some new great wonder products had me wanting them so bad.  When I went to Asda they were on 3 for 2 so it seemed stupid to just buy the one (that’s what I’m telling myself)

I picked up the Daily Miracle treatment was £6, Dream Curls Styling Spray was £5 and 3 day straight was £7 so I did save quite a bit. They are still on offer so if you love John Frieda products I’d suggest checking out your local Asda.

I’ve only properly tried the Dream Curls Styling Spray and was hugely impressed. I swim a lot at the moment  so I’m having to embrace natural hair. My hair is normally quite frizzy not very even curls. This made my hair curl without frizz and much more evenly, it was also left feeling soft. There is nothing worse than crispy hair.

I didn’t technically need the products but I’m really glad I bought them and my hair is too!!

As for my wishlist. I actually have nothing to add this week. I will be making a purchase next week as unfortunately I have a funeral to attend and now need a black dress.

    Haha! My willpower gets left behind frequently. Especially when it comes to sweets! My sister has crazy curly hair and used to use this brand in high school. She now uses Aveda Be Curly products. Have you tried them?
