Just when I think I've got more than enough hair products in my 'to use' queue, Hairhouse Warehouse brings out the big guns with their new Platinum Blitz Box.
Not so much a mystery box and more a value pack, its contents are ticked off on the back, with a few combinations available. I ended up with a Goldwell Color shampoo, conditioner and Rich Repair 60 Sec treatment, and a tub of RPR Style Me Up hair gel. Irregardless of the mix, each box contains a mini crimper and shower comb. At $29.95 for a Blitz Box compared to the RRP of $20.95 for each of the Goldwell products, it's a really obvious choice if you wanted to buy a shampoo/conditioner pair, gets some freebies and save some coin. Seems that Hairhouse Warehouse has stumbled onto my one
secret well-advertised weakness - things I need, packaged with things I don't really need, all for a low, low price.
It's almost like losing money if I don't buy it!
I do like Goldwell products, and these ones have now joined the reeeeeeally long line to someday bathe my hair. God, I'm such a hoarder! I also like the comb that you can hook around a tap or something to keep it safe in the shower, and the wide teeth make it perfect for combing conditioner through your lengths. The gel has been passed onto to The Boyfriend because I will never use it.
As for the crimper, will I ever actually use it?
Some people may find it useful for adding volume by crimping the underside of your hair, but I seriously have more volume than I can handle right now. I can just tell already that at some point this summer I will be drunk, and it will be 3am and I will decide to give myself an awesome 80s makeover. This will not be a good thing. Especially if I boof it out into an at-home-style perm.
A mini straightener would've be much more helpful, especially for those amongst us with shorter hair or a bangin' fringe.
Still, the box is a great deal, and worth picking up if you're normally a salon shampoo purchaser. They are available from Hairhouse Warehouse for A$29.95 and as it's a seasoning offering, supplies may be limited.
