Why You Should Never Straighten or Curl Wet Hair


I’ve been straightening and curling my hair wet/damp for years, despite all the popcorn-sounding fizzes and crackles – but some science I’ve recently read have made me do a complete 180.

This is a product for super lazy people – Schick Intuition razors lather and shave in one go, in case you’re finding it too hard to put soap on yourself. I know this sounds ridiculous, but it’s actually a bit tricky to lather with soap, then shave your legs before the soap gets washed away. Of course, you can turn …
