While I was at a friends I noticed an array of brightly packaged Bed Head (by Tigi) products on her beauty shelf, ranging from hair conditioners to sprays to shampoos and conditioners. I'd noticed them in salons before but had never spoke to someone who used them; being the lovely girl that she is she washed her hair and got spritzing and styling to show me just how well these products worked for her, from that moment I was hooked and had to have them!
The friend in question brought special attention to 'Small Talk' - a three in one styler which is to be used while hair dries either naturally or with a blow dryer to add body and volume whilst protecting and controlling the hair. She applied it to the hair by rubbing a single pump of product between her fingers to soften it and then rubbed it quickly through her hair, she then allowed it to naturally dry telling me it would 'dry crispy' but brush out as beautifully soft and voluptuous hair. This alarmed me a little, and it did indeed dry very hard and crispy, but to my amazement when she brushed through her hair the product disappeared and left super shiny, super soft hair with super volume with a natural looking 'bounce' - incredible.
'Ego Boost' was something I saw on the site myself which I wanted to to try, it's a leave in conditioner which should be applied to the tips of the hair to protect and restore. It is applied similarly to any pump action conditioner - smoothed on the ends of wet hair only - and then styled however you wish.
Both products smell incredible and are excellent value for money, a little goes a very long way!

About Gorgeous Shop
Once I arrived home from my friends I immediately signed online to find the products and came across gorgeousshop.co.uk - a website selling haircare, body care, beauty, tan and accessories at slightly cheaper prices than the RRP. With a great range of products on offer including Xen Tan, Bare Minerals, Clarins, Essie nail polish and Kerastase haircare - to name a few - I got on with researching the site. After finding no problems I decided to make an order and see how they faired against favourites such as ASOS (who retail a few Tigi products but none of the ones I wanted).
My order came to £16 in total including P&P as the Bed Head products are currently on offer at half price; it could have cost me almost £30 if I had ordered them in other stores or bought them in my local salon. Current offers include 30% off Xen Tan, 15% off Essie nail products and 30% off Kerastase, again to name a few (I found most of the products on the website had some sort of offer).
I made my order Tuesday morning and it arrived Thursday morning, that same week, even though I had only ordered standard delivery - which costs £3.50. Already thoroughly impressed I opened my package to find the products really well wrapped in bubble wrap and film to ensure the nibs did not crack through postage, this pleased me greatly as I have received haircare products in the post before which had clearly been handled poorly and were packaged incorrectly so had snapped.
As an extra bonus I had a few vouchers in the box and a free shower bag (pictured), which will be really useful to travel my hair products to university, from home, to Alex's, etc.
I'm really glad I took the plunge and used a website which was new to me as it worked out really well, I am definitely going to be ordering some more Bed Head products and some Essie polish from them in the near future.
