The Art of Everything

The Art of Drying Hair

The truth of the matter is that I do not have a lot of hair. Actually I have virtually none at all. OK, technically I do have hair. It is on the side of my head, in my ears and up my nostrils. My hair didn’t really fall out as opposed to just get up and walk to other embarrassing parts of my body. The hair that did stay on the top of my head however, decided that it was going to turn grey and grow faster than the regular hair that is left, leaving me feeling like a baldy freak!

So it will come as no surprise to you that I have zero sympathy for my wife moaning how long it takes her to dry her hair. Basically her old Babyliss blow dryer has died and she doesn’t know whether or not to buy a popular elchim hair dryer or the more expensive but trendy dryer by Paul Mitchell. My first reaction was to tell her to buy the cheapest model but she gave me a look that said shut up, so I did. The elchim blow dryer range seem dependable and generally get positive reviews. On the other hand, the Paul Mitchell hair dryer is more expensive and not so well known. However, those in the know rave about it and say it is awesome.

So that is the dilemma that my wife is left with and I have to practice my “I am listening to you and feel your pain” face when really I’m dying in side! I’m only joking of course, or maybe just a little bit. But seriously, I do love my wife’s hair so do care what happens to it. That is why I decided to research the two products myself. I do like the look of the Elchim range but have to say that Paul Mitchell does come across as a cool dude and am very tempted to let her buy his version 2 blow dryer.

Fashion is an interesting thing. In one sense it is about trying to express who you truly are with your unique funky style. In another sense it is conforming to what everybody else looks like based on where you shop.

With fashion things are in or they are out. Take for example hair. Straight hair has been fashionable for a long time. Curly or wavy hair has had its moments but for the most part has not been considered ‘cool.’ So essentially, if you were born with curly or wavy hair and you want to be fashionable then you need a piece of equipment to do something about it. I hear that people love the Babyliss Big Hair brush but you can use anything you like.

Having said all that and sounding incredibly cynical and anti-fashion. If you are feeling down in the dumps or want to give yourself a dramatic makeover, straightening your hair can make a huge difference. My partner owns cloud nine straighteners and swears by them. I was browsing through pinterest and saw some great dramatic changes that highlighted this. So if you want to give yourself a dramatic makeover, check out some hair straightener reviews, find the best one for you and get straightening.

Open Wide Toothbrush Tips


I’ve been reading a lot of electric toothbrush reviews recently because I’m thinking about getting a new brush like the ORAL B 5000. Whilst researching that I came across a forum post about cleaning your teeth with an electric toothbrush. I think the link is: The user asked the question:

“How do you clean your teeth with an electronic toothbrush without sending the toothpaste flying everywhere?”

At first I thought to myself, what a ridiculous question. Indeed the following post said “try closing your mouth!”

However as I cleaned my teeth this morning with my toilet tree electric toothbrush review and I could not help but think about that post as I looked at the colgate toothpaste dribble on my jumper. I had started with the brush in my mouth before I turned it on. I had closed my mouth as best I could when running a vibrating device over my teeth. I even turned off the toothbrush in my mouth before taking it out yet here I was with toothpaste on my jumper. The most annoying thing about it, is that it is a nightmare to get toothpaste off a top without washing it. So now here I am with toothpaste on my top thinking that maybe that wasn’t such a stupid question after all and perhaps I should post a response to that mans post pointing out that it is not as stupid as it sounds.

But I won’t. Who wants to be trolled over a toothpaste comment!
