Beauty Trends for Spring/Summer 2013 - Big Hair feat VO5 Plump Me Up Range

Giles, Diane Von Furstenberg, DKNY
 I have always been a fan of big fat hair,
and I'm especially crazy about the stunning Katherine Pierce's do on the Vampire Diaries 
(yes, I am a fan, and I'm proud of it!) 
However as you might notice, I don't do a lot of hair care posts and reviews on my blog, 
because unlike most beauty bloggers, I am incapable of styling my own hair.
I have never been gifted with talents of using hair tongs and irons for hair curling/straightening purposes.
 And I am, therefore, constantly searching for ways to get the oomph I want with minimal effort.
Enter the VO5 Plump Me Up Hair Care Range!
We have been together for 6 months now and going strong.
I have been religiously using the following products:
VO5 Plump Me Up Shampoo
VO5 Plump Me Up Conditioner
VO5 Plump Me Up Dry Shampoo
VO5 Plump Me Up High Definition Blow Dry Amplifying Lotion
VO5 Plump It Up Heat Defence Volume & Lift Spritz
Reasons why I love this range.
- deliver weightless volume to my hair
- conditioner makes my hair feel soft  without taking too much time to work in the shower
- my scalp does not feel dirty with the dry shampoo, unlike some others
- does NOT cause any acne breakouts
(I tend to get acne on my chest and back with some other shampoos and conditioners)
- volumising hair spritzers have heat protection
- affordable price
My hair care routine.
I wash my hair every other day with the shampoo and conditioner. 
The gaps between washes prevent my hair from drying out too much.
With my trusty hair dryer, I then dry wet hair by flipping my hair upside down.
In between washes if my hair feels yucky or if I'm in a pinch, I use the dry shampoo to quickly dissolve any grease and make my hair feel fresh again.
Before meeting friends or nights out, I spritz some of the hair volumisers, spread through my hair and then blow dry with hair flipped upside down.
If my hair feels dry, I apply 2 pumps of L'Oreal Elvive Extraordinary Oil UV Filter on my palms and run through my hair, for added softness and shine.
