Ouch… hard.. to… type…

So we’ve finally done it…yes, the HQ girls have joined a gym! We would do a mini-Mexican wave of joy but as we attended a fun-filled (that’s how the instructor described it anyway) hour of body pump on Wednesday night, we’ve pulled all the muscles in our entire bodies and we can’t really move. So that’s a good start!

If like us you’re joining a gym, vowing to live on carrot sticks and Vitamin water (Sienna Miller’s legs, Sienna Miller’s legs) and opting for cranberry juice minus the vodka, then we’ve got the perfect motivational tools. After all we can’t be the only ones who think the best part about joining a gym is getting the new cute outfit to go with it?! Can we!?

Swimming may be seen as one of the best forms of exercising, but chlorine destroyed hair is not such a good look! So check out this fabulous moisturising hair and body wash product from phyto– a swimming bag must have!

For when you over-do it (like us) you’ll need this in your handbag at ALL times! It’s a great muscle rub from badger balm– trust me, it’s needed!

When you feel hungry or are about to give in to temptation, apply this nifty lip balm from burner balm pronto, it helps you burn calories!

So hopefully in no time we’ll be looking as hot as this:


Cheat Your Way to a Happy New Year

 The term ‘Happy New Year’ can sound a little ironic in January, especially can we’re all bombarded with credit card bills, ghastly weather and an unfortunate extra tyre thanks to the over indulgence at Christmas. 

That’s why at HQhair we have put together a Cheat’s Guide to 2010. Instead of living off seeds for the next month try supporting a healthy eating plan with a few of our top selling weight loss aids. Including Burner Balm, Bliss’ FatGirlScrub and Rodial’s new Tummy Tuck Sticks.

To tackle the effects of the ghastly weather our guide also points you in the right direction in regards to hair and skincare. There is nothing worse than the development of dry itchy skin, chapped lips and dry, straw-like hair to top off the depressing winter blues. The good news is that we have tons of products on your side! Fight the winter effects with our range of dry skin busters and dry hair conditioners plus discover something new like HQhair exculsive Egyptian Magic and Japan’s favourite moisturiser Yu-Be.
