Clicks is tres cunning in holding their electrical sale in winter; this is exactly when you really want to spring for a heater or an electric blanket and snapping it up on sale is a lure too good to resist.
As it is, my boyfriend came home with a gas heater the other day. It does an amazing job of warming up our lounge so I’m working to get over my irrational fear of operating it alone. Every time I go to switch it on, I visualise it bursting into flames. I know it’s totally ridic but I’ve had ‘fire issues’ ever since semi-burning down a former flatmate’s kitchen in an attempt to make Chinese prawn crackers. To date, I can only really eat them if I’m in the fetal position. And rocking. With a bit of crying…
Anyway, getting back to the sale… they’ve got a very nice BaByliss 2100 Watt ionic hairdryer going for R199,99:
I know it’s very nice because I actually bought it earlier on this week after my previous dryer shot out a small yet terrifying flame. (For the record, I’ve also had a fan heater blow a nice fat vlam at my leg… Oooh! And when I was little, my heater blanket’s controller spotaneously combusted, resulting in an evil scorchmark that surged half way across my sheets. Sure had no trouble getting up for school that day…)
Anyway, if you’re looking for a new hairdryer, pop into Clicks. Just make sure you opt for one that’s got a high Wattage. These are more powerful and will dry your hair in a shorter time. If you limit your hair’s exposure to heat this will go a long way in preventing heat damage. That and a rad heat protection spray like ghd’s (which in my opinion is head and shoulders above the rest).
