This year’s Big Brother is jam packed with drama, and I’m sure if you’ve seen the latest set of events unfold, you too would have been on the edge of your seat. But alongside the housemates’ crazy antics this year, the other aspect of the Channel 5 show that has gripped me this season is the amazing decor. Based on being ‘eco-friendly’, with a patch in the garden where housemates have been growing their own vegetables, the stars of the show even have to kindly ask a friend every morning to power their hairdryer by peddling the bicycle. Luckily, I have the very same hairdryer as the housemates – but can plug it straight into the wall.
Very.co.uk is the official ‘interior designer’ for Big Brother this year, and you can actually shop the entire house on their website (how amazing), right down to their bedding, yellow suitcases and rugs.
The team working with Very and Big Brother kindly sent me one of the items from the house to try – in the form of this gorgeous Love Label hairdryer.
Perfect for restoring humidity ridden locks, the ‘diffusing’ part of the hairdryer helps reduce frizz and create volumized, bouncy curls, which you can then ‘set’ (and cool off) by using the cool switch. Easy to use, lightweight and with two speed settings, you can be ready to head out the door within minutes!
I personally am rather fussy when it comes to hairdryers, as they have to meet a set number of requirements in order to become a part of my morning routine. I’ve tried and tested a few hairdryers over the years, but have stayed faithful to the same old one for awhile.
This Love Label dryer does indeed meet each and every one of my requirements – especially being lightweight, as heavy-to-hold hairdryers make the whole process that bit more difficult. And it’s much, much faster than the one I currently have. The cooling setting (which is a life saver in this heat, I’ve actually found myself ‘cooling’ my face off before applying make-up) seems not only to ‘set’ whichever style you have created, but also increase the shine and texture of your hair – as whenever I have used the hairdryer, I have been complimented numerous times on ‘my new do’.
With regards to the design of the hairdryer, the plain black (with a slight glimmer) doesn’t really stand out for me much, however I think the sleek packaging gives the product a very professional feel, which it upholds when in use. For a very affordable price (£27) this is a fantastic product, with lots of plus points and (luckily) no need to power with a bicycle.
So, overall – I’m voting to ‘save’ the hairdryer!
