L'Oreal Studio Line Hot & Big - my big hair hero!

I've spoken about my hair many a time here on the blog and in videos, so I'll keep this little overview brief.  My hair is grand.  It's in decent condition, I've a lot of it, but it's really silky.  Now this is a good thing on days where I want sleek, swishy hair or on days where I want my ponytail to look smooth and perfect.  Because it's so silky, it doesn't hold a curl, or rather it can't hold a curl and more often than not can look super flat against my already massive head.  No seriously, Joanne and I have humungous heads, can't get sunhats to fit us.  But I digress.  I enjoy having big voluminous hair like the rest of humanity.  I'm not talking Dynasty sized hair, but hair that looks thicker and bouncier thank you very much.

Enter this.  My new absolute hair love and if I keep using it at the rate I am, I'll have this bottle finished in a month.  But I'll be repurchasing it lads because it's the absolute business.  I present to you the L'Oreal Studio Hot & Big spray.

This is described as a heat protectant spray which also gives volume and while I can't test the whole 3 day volume claim because I've to wash my hair either every day or every second day, I can tell you that the mad volume it gives me stays put all day long, no matter how much I faff about with my hair.

I apply a decent amount to towel dried hair while my hair is flipped over, I'd say a good 10-15 sprays because come on, silky hair needs all the help it can get.  I then blow dry my hair bending over so that it's upside down and do my usual brushing with my Tangle Teezer as I dry.  When I flip my hair back over, it's bloody massive!

Now this promises to control frizz and flyaways, but let me tell you that your flyaways or baby hairs at the front of your head won't stand a chance with this stuff!  They will be vertical when you flip your head back over, thus showing the sheer strength of volume that this gives!  So a little flattening is needed.

This gives volume from root to tip and the best part is, it doesn't feel like your hair is packed with product.  There's no stickiness and my hair doesn't feel extra tangly, it just feels big and bouncy, like myself!  Now I haven't styled my hair in these photos, I wanted to show you what it's like in it's naked form.  If you want to see what it's like when I use my Babyliss Big Hair, then check out my latest favourites video for coiffed hair!

The fact that Hot & Big helps protect my hair against heat damage is the cherry on top as I blow dry my hair pretty much every day, but even if it didn't, I'd still be in love with it because thanks to it, I have mad big bouncy hair!

There's another product in the range, the Hot and Go heat protectant that helps speed up the drying time of your hair and sometimes I'll use the two together because I'm that wild.  While it doesn't take that long to dry my hair since I got it cut, I don't see a mad improvement in drying time, so maybe this will be better for those with longer hair.

But lads, if you have hair, you need the Hot & Big.  I'm telling you, it's brilliant stuff and at the moment, it's on sale in Superdrug and after posting a photo of it either on Instagram or Snapchat recently, someone sent me a photo of it on sale in Sam Mc Cauley's, so either way, I'll be stocking up because this is holy grail stuff.  It's RRP is €5.99 but I've people tweeting, snap chatting and DMing me when they find it and they tell me it's on sale in Superdrug and Sam Mc Cauleys at the moment!

May-ja big hair for Lovely Girlie Bits!

PS, I had to copy and paste the name for the entire blog post because I literally cannot remember the name and my dirty mind is working overtime!  I had Hot & Go, Hot & Hard, Big & Hard, so maybe have a photo of it on your phone and show the nice person in the pharmacy if you're looking for it, rather than asking for it!


  1. Fup off! That stuff looks amazing! Now I must have it. Also, this post is so well laid out, the picture really tells 'the story' of how you used the product and how great the result was. I don't know what I'm more impressed with; the product or the blog post!

  2. This stuff is the biz!!!! Thanks for the recommendation I've been telling everyone about it! Love big hair!
