My hair looks great.
What girly things have you done for the first time recently?
No seriously: my hair looks AMAZING.
On a sidebar: how do people (girls?) manage NOT to burn their hands several times with their gHDs? I'm a beginner, lest we forget?
steady hand, don't flinch when you feel the heat of the straighteners next to your head because then you'll actually burn
Write it in the condensation on your bathroom mirror after you've had a shower,works a treat.
Had to do something about it. Getting a haircut is NOT an option, and no product seems to have the desired result.
Burn your hair a little: straightens it. Brilliant.
something subtle like this would do the trick
When we split up he had to have a different hair cut. True story.
(I thought you were bald?)
I'm probably one of the top 5 hirsute members of DIS. I'd be top 3 if I had a beard.
If I had a beard I would be top 2 easy, probably behind LordLucius.
I ballsed up and dropped it on my wrist. The big, angry burny scar mark went with the hairstyle pretty well.
She lets me use her hair straightners and go for long weekends with my gentlemen friends.
I tell ya what I hate: TOILET SEATS!
Despite the fact I have been using straighteners for about 5 Years.
DOUBLE STANDARDS FTW
buy offering him a ginsters and saying he could switch down on me.
You won't regret this.
be careful if he offers you a relaxing facial.
Mine are hot pink.
How did that feel?
had a proper punch up over one using the other's straightners without permission.
He used to post under Snowbrigade
I could imagine Brian May having a fight with the ghost of Freddie Mercury over who is next on the GHDs. Then May deciding it was a bad idea and 'switching down' to curlers.
before Brian killed him with the bad Aids
I knew he called DiS crap for slagging off Mika - I can't believe he really posted.
I don't think a proper punch was ever thrown.
I like Adam.
I miss Adam. :(
I'll quiz him on the hair straighteners story.
And you won't have to quiz very hard - there were witnesses.
I highly recommend it.
weatherbeaten charm (crows feet/wrinkles).
My girlfriend's less keen on it, but she's not the one hoping for a future action-hero career in hollywood.
However you should start on the wrinkle cream
you will be 38.
I will be "distinguished"
You will be "past it".
SUCKS TO BE YOU
still trying to recapture your youth.
**googles motorbikes and leather trousers**
My boyfriend goes through tubs of the nivea soft. He applies it everywhere, every single day. I don't like being moisturised. I'm not keen on my skin being moist.
I should totes go on a date with your boyfriend!
Moisturising is an anti-aging measure. I sometimes still get ID'd. So it's working...RIGHT? Right.
i've got some nivea soft hand cream on my desk. maybe we could double team him?
I'm enjoing being moist now....
(sorry, that was quite gross and so un-like me)
No rub it into your face carefully.
(sorry, that was quite gross and exactly like me)
it implied i was rubbing it somewhere else.
meths, need your work address buddy.
i'm eating my lunch.
which co-incidentally taste a bit of washing up liquid, due to a un-properly cleansed pan. i wouldnt mind, but this is the 3rd time this week i've had to eat this same meal cos i made so much of it the other night.
We need your work address please.
69 Nivea St.
come on darcy
I'm just straightening my hair.
Got a feeling that might be a bogus address.
Thank you for making me moist.
When have I ever turned you down on a threesome? Never, that's when.
Actually don't. I am imagining you both moisturising each other. This is hot. This is really hot.
It contains Lanolin which is basically the oil extracted from sheeps wool - they basically boil dirty sheep wool and then whatever is left in the water is what you lather all over your face. It's what makes your cream have that oily texture. Your skin doesn't actually absorb the moisture it just sits ontop of your skin, like a sheet of oil. Clogging up your pores with sheep oil. Yuk.
i dont beleive it.
The best men's skincare range is from Kiehls. you can buy it online if you're a bit funny about going into a shop for it. Also, there are 2 simple things you can do which will prevent skin from aging AVSTLY more than anything else and they are 1. use an SPF every day and 2. do not smoke.
The defense rests, y'ronour.
Usually in tesco. And I am 34, so I know what I'm talking about Darcy! Belivee in me! It will be ok! The sands of time will stop running for us :)
Last time was trying to buy fags in July, just befroe I gave up. I carry my passport wioth me everywhere, fortunately, and the guy nearly died when he saw my birthyear was 76. Also, I look even younger now I've given up smoking :) <--- proud smile. (I do admit, however, there's no fucking way I look <18 though. Those people are mental or blind.) sob.
thats nearly 20 years over the age.
(so technically twice whilst 23.) And always by men. i think some men have no idea about the age of women.
- old lady
so there's an anomaly of 16 years, not 20, smartypants.
i smoked from the age of 12 to well, now, on and off. Plus drank pretty heavily during the week and weekends from 21 to well, until a few years ago
I have never ever been able to buy alcohol from the supermarket, and regularly get turned down to buy cigarettes, and I refuse to carry around a passport. I'm 31 for chrissakes.
It's in your genes, innit?
The lady asked what I was going to use it for. I told her for sticking my shoes together and she laughed. Why is that funny?
I was also buying a gaden fork, hand trowel and hand fork at the time.
I was 30, ffs.
and just wanted to move on and spend the rest of my days quietly in a well tended garden
couldn't agree more. Especially on the smoking bit - it dehydrates your skin and increases the visibility of the pores on your face.
Also, struggling to ever get a slot at Old Street bikram- thinking of trying Soho?.. Also, my friends swear by this place http://www.facebook.com/pages/London-United-Kingdom/Hot-Bikram-Yoga/51887827660
AND THEY DO BIKRAM RETREATS TO IBIZA. Yes.
badly. I will see you tonight - then we can actually talk about this.
to sort my sciatica out. Srsly.
It's Bikram so they're in tiny shorts and no shirts.
Sciatica is a bit more fucked up than your average back problem unfortunately.
ALSO, I sometimes get ID'd. I'm sticking to Nivea Soft and its sheepy goodness.
i'm jealous actually.
Dementia? Not quite.
I'm 30, for fuck's sake. LET THE PAST GO, GRANDAD.
Moisturising. Get out.
You go girl. Pfft.
it's not fucking botox you pleb!
we need a "MEGA THIS" button
Straighten your beard too.
which included straightening his beard. cue sizzling noises and an awful smell of burnt beard. it didn't go straight either....just had a straightener shaped dent in it
you're hair is already straight.
A bit 2005 innit?
This thread needs a truck load of Theos to set it (ahem) straight.
(Yup. I checked. 'Truckload' is the collective noun for Theos.)
After next March. Just sayin'.
ALSO - does it work on wool?
I think I might pull a sickie next March.
does it work on pubes?
Has anyone asked that? CTRL-F "pubes"
including epilating of legs and exfoliation.
This is not happening. This is not happening. This is not happening. This is not happening.....
can't type through the tears.
I. Have. No. Ben.
it was a bit disappointing, though, as the hot water ran out :(
You did what? You fucking woofter!
I used hairstraightners today
To see if I am gay
I focus on the curl
The only thing that's real
The ghds tears a hold
The old familiar burn
Try to straighten it all away
But I remember everything
What have I become
My straightest friend
Every curl I know goes away
In the end
And you could have it all
My empire of curls
I will let you down
I will make you straight
I wear this crown of curls
Upon my liar's chair
Full of split ends
Pantene cannot repair
Beneath the stains of dye
The curls all disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here
If I could start again
A million curls away
I would straighten myself
I would find a way
and stays in place if I just wax it up and hairspray it while it's wet.
Beatnik Chick: With an iron, man. I play my bongos, listen to Odetta, and then I iron my hair, dig?
