Usually about 4-5 months after giving birth I hit that horrible hair stage. I often joke ‘If only I lost the baby weight as quickly as my hair’ but it really isn’t a laughing matter. All that lovely thick pregnancy hair is falling out rapidly and I am left with dry, unruly hair that is impossible to brush. Most days I go for the messy bun escape but if I can find the time I prefer to fight the frizz with my Remington hair straightener, just whizz through and it instantly becomes easier to work with.

Remington Straightener

The limited edition Remington Shine Revival Straightener (RRP $49.95) combines smooth, shine and chic in one gorgeous pack that’s perfectly timed (and priced) for Mother’s Day in just a few weeks.

If you are dreaming of luscious locks, smooth strands and gorgeous gloss the new Shine Revival technology is just what you need. This limited edition straightener features floating ceramic plates (110mm) that are infused with Moroccan Argan Oil to condition your hair and add up to 86% more shine, who doesn’t like the sound of that?

Remington Pouch BrushBusy mums will love the fact that it heats up in just 15 seconds and you don’t need to wait until your hair is completely dry, the straightener can be used on both wet and dry hair. Special steam hydration vents steam out water from damp hair, locking in moisture whilst straightening and drying it at the same time. To complete the gift pack a matching heat resistant storage pouch and vent brush are included so you can keep all your styling essentials neatly together for storage or transport.

Remington’s Shine Revival straightener also offers variable heat settings (140°C – 230°C) to cater for all different hair types, an easy-to-read digital display, salon swivel cord for free movement, automatic safety shutoff and worldwide voltage, allowing you to enjoy your favourite styler at home and on holiday all over the globe.

As always Remington puts their money where their mouth is by offering a generous 2 year product warranty.

When people hear I am a mum of three beautiful girls they often comment on all the brushing, detangling and braiding I have ahead of me. To be honest I don’t mind all this hair styling and my girls love it when I try something new. By now I have mastered the basics and I am hoping I will get to try my hand at some of the more fancy hairstyles too, bring on all those parties and other special celebrations! However getting four kids ready for school is quite the challenge so during the week we usually go for quick and easy with a simple ponytail, bun or plait.

Scunci Hair ElasticsEver since I moved to Australia I have used Scunci No Damage Hair Elastics to keep my own hair up and found them gentle (no metal parts to damage your hair), very reliable (no escaping strands of hair and no slipping out) and of course durable (I use the same elastics again and again and they last ages without stretching). This is exactly why I now use the same Scunci Hair Elastics for my girls, the traditional navy ones are perfect for school.

Scunci MirrorOf course the eye wants something too and like most girls our daughters love shiny hair clips, sparkly elastics, beautiful headbands and bows of all sizes, if it was up to them they would wear all of them together (the concept of less is more is yet to sink in!). Give them a box of pretty hair accessories, a brush and a mirror to admire their special creations in and they’ll be entertained for hours.

Scunci Girl Hair BrushEspecially for those little mini hairstylists Scunci has created Scunci Girl, a fun, colourful range of hair accessories and styling tools that are sure to brighten any dull (school) day. Girls will love experimenting with all the different styles and combinations and create a new look every day. Scunci Girl products are easy to use and, not unimportant, with prices starting at just $5.95 they won’t break the bank.
