It's years since I've used Pantene shampoo and conditioner but it's clear I am susceptible to advertising. I have become addicted to Hulu since moving to New York. It's an online TV service and I am ploughing my way through Grey's Anatomy like my life depends on it. Anyway, it has adverts that you can't skip and there is a Pantene one featuring Gisele. I have no time for Gisele and her yoga poses with her baby but one has to admit, she is beautiful. There is no way on earth my hair could ever be like hers but there I was in the shampoo aisle debating over which to buy and somehow my hand reached for this.

I am annoyed with myself for buying into the advert. I don't even kid myself thinking my hair will tumble luxuriously as a result of using this and the conditioner. However, I must say I am enjoying it. My hair does feel smooth and shiny. It smells good. It's cheap. Basically, it's a win.

Have I stuck to my no-buy January? Well, yes and no. OK, no, not exactly. I bought a new hairdryer - the one in my apartment broke and life without a hairdryer is unthinkable. It broke while I was sick so not only was I confined to my bed, I was confined to my bed with frizzy BAD HAIR. Horrors. I also bought an eye pencil from the Sephora range because I read it was a good dupe for the Charlotte Tilbury eye crayons and in my logic, that was actually saving money. More on that in a future post. And I bought a hair product my sister is raving about. Again, more on that soon when I've tested it further.
