HAVE you ever felt like giv­ing your hair a quick make-over, but aren't keen to make the trip to the salon? There are cost-ef­fec­tive tools you can use at home to main­tain your hair and keep it look­ing its best.

HAIR DRYER DIF­FUSER

A dif­fuser is an at­tach­ment to a blow dryer. It is best for those with thin and sen­si­tive hair and those who want to cre­ate curls. It min­imises the amount of heat on the hair, while pro­tect­ing it. It also min­imises tan­gling and frizz.
