I find it amusing that I haven’t yet met a real life person who’s admitted to reading the 50 Shades Of Grey trilogy. Clearly plenty of people have otherwise it wouldn’t currently be the best-selling book of all time in the UK. Now whether you are too toe-curlingly embarrassed to admit to taking a peek or you have genuinely not read it, it’s a moot point.
I don’t wish to spoil the enjoyment of the book for you if you eventually intend to give in to curiosity. All I will say is putting aside the adult nature of the content, the truth is that the story-line, characters and prose are decidedly unremarkable. But with so many people talking about it online and on television, it just a matter of time until vague interest turns into a purchase for the more impressionable among us ergo an average book becomes a bestseller!
Our hair product stashes are not safe from this phenomenon either. These days there only needs to be one glowing review of a product before we all jump on the bandwagon to discover the benefits for ourselves. A short while later these things are gathering dust in our drawers!
Here’s my list of overrated hair tools and products that you may want to think twice about, before purchasing.
1. Denman Brush*
– I don’t know who started the rumor years ago that natural girls absolutely had to own a denman brush* if they were to survive. The denman has become like a badge of honor in the membership of #teamnatural but you know what, it’s just not necessary in your regimen. You can get by quite quite well with any old brush or absolutely no brush at all! When’s the last time you had a denman related emergency?
