Posts in None of Your Frizzness

Last Thursday (26 May) we celebrated the wonderful birthday of yours truly, The Plastic Diaries. Yes, we reached the ripe old age of 1. I mentioned to you briefly that today (May 30) I will be celebrating with a big giveaway. For those of you who are regular readers of The Plastic Diaries you may notice that today is the last Monday of the month, which is usually when we have our monthly giveaway, but this month I wanted to honour our 1st birthday by doing something a little different. Instead of giving away just 1 product that I love from the past 30 days, I wanted to do a years worth. This giveaway features products or brands I have mentioned in the past year, whether it had been a review or a special offer, there is a mix of everything.

Why This Giveaway

Before I get into the prizes and competition nitty gritty, I just wanted to say a few quick words. HA! I know, I have never said a ‘few’ or ‘quick’ words in my lifetime, but I will try.

Making it to the 1 year mark for me means a lot. It has been a tiresome, exhausting, crazy and joyful ride that I wouldn’t have changed a minute of. However, how this past year has been for me is of no real importance. This past year has really been about you. Talking to you, sharing with you and having fun with you. More than anything I hope you have learnt something while reading The Plastic Diaries but also had a little fun. Some of you openly express your opinions, via the comments, Twitter or Facebook, and I love every time you do. Others sit there quietly and support me from a far, I love that too.

Luckily I was blessed with strong hair, and it has always been strong but when you have fine hair frizziness is forever present whether it is strong or not. Anyone who has experienced frizzy hair would know what I mean when I say this because you work so hard at getting your hair healthy or shiny or glossy but it still doesn’t get rid of the frizz. This is where specially formulated frizz control serums come in and you NEED to use one if your going to have any chance and getting those flyaway hairs to come in for landing.

Picking the right serum for your hair can be tricky and unfortunately one of those things you discover by trial & error. Until I started looking Continue Reading

Have you noticed there’s been a bit of chatter about copper peptides in skincare lately? The biggest player on the scene right now is NIOD’s Copper Amino Isolate Serum (CAIS), and it has people swearing that this is a liquid version of the second coming.

Unfortunately when an ingredient becomes trendy we see the market flooded with products claiming to be using the best of it. Copper Peptides are that hot-new ingredient right now but what exactly are they? I’ve chatted with Deciem’s co-CEO, Nicola Kilner, to get the lowdown on copper peptides and how you can make sure you buy a product that works.  Continue Reading
