It's flashback Friday to my childhood obsession with Britney Spears in today's post! How could I have imagined that almost 10 years later she would be releasing her own hair care range for none other than Lidl. Renowned for their amazing selection of European foods and other special offers which certainly don't break your bank, this newly released range is no different. Britney Spears hair care range launched yesterday (18 December) and will only be available in stores whilst stocks last!! The prices of her range are insanely good and the products on offer are a hairdryer, mini hair straighteners, hairbrushes, a hair straightener, hot air styler and a multi function styler. In the words of Britney 'Don't keep me waiting', I know you're all dying to find out what her products are actually like...If Britney isn't really your cup of tea, don't let you put that off she really has pulled it out of the bag with this one.
Multi-Function Styler £11.99* This styler comes in at one of the most expensive products from her line but which is still such a low price for a versatile appliance. Like the name says, it really does offer a variety of different ways that you can style your hair. The appliance comes with 7 different styling attachments which can help you to create; straight hair, crimped waves, soft waves, corkscrew curls, large volume waves, small soft curls or crimped curls.
For the time being I won't be testing out the curling elements to this because of my hair disaster last week!! However, I have been wanting a crimper styler for soo long, it's not the most conventional hair style and it is definitely overlooked by curls or straight hair but I think it looks so unique and it's something else that definitely reminds me of my childhood. It's a great styler as it appeals to everyone's hair types and allows you to switch and change your hair style on any given day.
The easy lock system on the handle makes it a smooth process to change over the attachments.
With any curling appliances I get so frustrated when the wire seems to tangle and wrap it's way around with each curl which can be highly annoying and time consuming to untangle. This styler has a 360 degree rotating handle which should ensure that this kind of thing doesn't happen.
Mini hair straighteners £4.99* I have tried various different hair straighteners over the years but have never actually come across a mini pair like this! They immediately jump out to me as being an amazing pair for short hair or for taking away with you when you go travelling.
Despite their tiny size they can still retain a constant temperature of 180 degrees. The plates have a ceramic coating which ensures even heat distribution throughout the hair. I had to do a double take at the price of these, £4.99 is an absolute bargain for such a great and handy essential! I will no longer have to compromise on having frizzy hair because I haven't been able to fit my straighteners into my bag. They would make a fab stocking filler or a secret Santa present, they'd even be a great size for boys who like to straighten their hair. Thanks to Lidl stocking these around Europe they can be used all around the world as they have an automatic voltage adjustment. These are by no means a patch on my GHD's as I have far too much hair for these to make a decent impact, but my mum tested these out who has short hair and found that they were much easier for her to use and style with than the standard size of straighteners, and they did adequately straighten her hair in little to no time. So in conclusion, these are only really suitable for you if you have short to mid length hair but as I've said before these would be great for travelling and for touching up the odd kink in your hair, quickly and easily.
Both of these hair styling products came with a really in depth instruction booklet which is definitely a thing that products nowadays seem to lack, albeit it more times than one I won't bother with the instructions but again after last weeks hoo haa I will definitely be reading into the small print to make sure things are suitable for my hair to avert any future disasters. Lidl have really catered for all European countries too ensuring that the instructions are written in various different languages. It goes without saying that I think the packaging of these is perfect. I initially thought that these products would been targeted to a young age and I think the brown/gold packaging makes it look a lot more grown up and sophisticated. I think these products are perfect for a younger market, perhaps for a child's first set of hair straighteners etc but the packaging really does make it open to a much wider range and I think they've got the packaging of it just right.
Hairbrush £1.99 Britney Spears hair care range also offers a selection of different hair brushes each to suit the different individuals hair, there's one for long, short, thick or fine hair. I do love a wide brush like this as it helps to cover more of my long hair at once. Nothing will ever convert me from my tangle teezer, but it's great to have an extra handy brush when I need one.
I'm very impressed with Britney Spears hair care range overall as you just can't go wrong with the prices, they almost seem too good to be true..but there really is no catch! Out of the three products I trialled the mini hair straighteners were without a doubt my favourite mainly down to the fact of their discrete size. I can really see these being a huge hit across Lidl stores! As I mentioned before Britney Spears hair care range is only available whilst stocks last, they really would make great extra presents, so if you want to try these out for yourselves or give as presents you do need to be quick to avoid disappointment. You can check the availability of these products in your local Lidl store here.
