School Run Superheroes

This week we tried out Lee Stafford’s ‘Blow Dry Your Hair Faster’ Spray, £6.99 from Boots.

The lowdown: despite looking like something Elle from Legally Blonde would have in her bathroom, the concept of this product is quite space-age. Not only does it reduce the time it takes to blow dry your hair but also makes it smoother, easier to comb and easier to style.

Our SM tester says: ‘TBH I don’t normally blow dry my hair on the school run, I just tie it back in a wet ponytail or stuff it under a beanie hat, so was intrigued to try this. It normally takes twenty minutes to blow dry and run the straighteners through my hair – which is long bob length and quite thick – so I spritzed this on whilst the kids were watching a double episode of Peppa Pig (it’s kind of the same coloured can as Peppa!). It does say it protects from heat so I did just go for it with the dryer on the top setting, but my hair was almost dry before I even got going really. Not sure how it works but it definitely is quicker. I didn’t notice much difference after styling – although my hair didn’t feel weighted down – but later in the day where I normally have frizzy ends I had lovely princess-like loopy curls. I would definitely recommend this – I don’t know if it makes the process quick enough to actually do on the school run (I still don’t really even have ten minutes to spare) but if it gives me more time for the rest of the day then that’s fine by me…’

Editor’s Tip: Keep the ditsy pink vibe going all day with Daisy Eau So Fresh fragrance from Marc Jacobs, it’s a lovely mix with the green tea scent of Lee Stafford’s range …
