  1. I would love to win this hamper because my hair has taken a beating from all the surfing - constant sun and saltwater takes it's toll! I have the worst tangles in the world!

  2. I would love to win this hamper because taking good care of my hair is very high on my priority list and it would help me a lot if V05 can support me in this! :D

    Another reason would be the fact that I have never won any competition before!


  3. I definitely think I deserve to win this hamper due to the very busy summer season I have had, which has lead me to neglect my hair most times. I have just graduated and am currently a job seeker and have come to realise that appearance is of vital importance when trying to make an impression. By having these VO5 products, I will have one less thing to worry about (my crazy hair) so I am free to focus on landing my dream job and reaching my full potential.

    I also have really thick hair and my family constantly complains that it is always all over the house due to it falling out so much. By using these VO5 products, I am sure that the nagging will stop and they will all be jealous and want to use my products aswell.

    My boyfriend also has hardly any hair as I make up for the both of us, and by using these products if I were to win them, I am 100% sure that I will not end up like him one day :)


  4. My sun stresses hair needs some TLC!

  5. I have never used any styling products on my hair, but would love to start with these :)


  6. I made a promise to myself to make 2013 my year of change and I'm starting with a drastic haircut. If I were to win this hamper, my new hairstyle will always looking amazing.


  7. I would love to win the VO 5 Hamper! My hair is in a sorry state thanks to my obsession with the ocean and general beach bum lifestyle. {}

  8. After a wonderful month spent mostly on the beach and in the sun my hair was already feeling rather dry and awful but then I decided to dye it (myself) a more golden caramel blonde, the day before an important event. Well needless to say this was the worst decision as the colour came out a horrid blue grey! Not a speck of golden to be seen. I panicked and ask a friend to go bye another colour for me so I could rectify it and as all salons had already closed this was my only option. After lots of praying and yoga breathing I unravelled the towel and to my horror my hair was now a ginger orange!!! I broke down and cried. Sounds silly but I really was shocked. My other friend had some brown dye (all shops were closed and yes this was all done on a single night!!!) so I dyed it the bland brown just so that I could attend the event the next morning with a semi acceptable shade of colour on my head. I thought I was in the clear and would wait a week or two before going back to my original blonde but then as Murphy's law would have it I received a phone call saying I have a shoot the next day and they want me to be my normal blonde. I then eagerly phoned many salons trying to get an emergency booking and no one wanted to touch my hair saying you cannot dye it so many times and your hair will all fall out. Being a stubborn taurean I refused to listen and marched off to clicks to get a pre-lightener stripper(the type that removes all colour from your hair not the naughty kind) and my usual lighter then my natural colour shade of blonde. After spending a couple hours and plenty more praying my hair was back to its original colour. So 5 boxes of dye in 2 days and I was back to my normal shade!!! Fortunately I did not loose any hair but my hair is so very dry and really in need of some love therefore this hamper will be ideal. I have promised my hair I will never ever put it through all of that again and am so thankful for my thick strong hair that puts up with all the abuse I put it through. This experience has taught me plenty and I would really like to restore my hair back to its healthy condition as straw is not very 2013.

  9. Im a total 'wake up and go' girl. I live an adventurous life (seriously, sometimes i have no idea where im going), so i need this prize coz it fits in with my no-fuss lifestyle. Having a bad hair day under control is like finding treasure on a beach! Speaking of the beach... (so pick me maybe?)

  10. Amazing giveaway!

    My hair would be forever indebted to you if I won, she's in dire need of some special attention!

  11. Julia -

    If only I had been a 20-something in the 1980s. My life would have been so much easier. My hair has been affectionately (or otherwise) referred to as a 'frizz ball', 'helmet hair' and 'the Afro'.

    To alleviate school ground (and corporate office) taunts, I have resorted to years of my life being dedicated to the lengthy process of hair straightening. My thick, unruly mass can take 2 hours from the 'it really needs to be washed before I am fit to be seen in public' stage to the acceptably straight stage. Sadly, on a humid day or if there is even the whisper of a mention of rainfall somewhere on the vast continent of Africa, my hair reverts with the swiftness of hungry fox to a pyramid. This in part is due to the amount of damage done from repetitive GHD-ing without decent products and in part due to my naturally dry hair. The whole process then must be repeated.

    Therefore, in conclusion, I submit that I would like to win the products, as the 80s frizz-fro is no longer acceptable in our modern society, and a girl must do what a girl must do, to not be socially scorned by her employers, colleagues and friends. Oh, and as a first year candidate attorney my salary is so low that it’s barely worth the paper it’s written on, and I could not afford to buy the lovely VO5 product range for at least the next year.

  12. I would love love love to win this hamper... I'm having a baby in March and my super long hair is going to need all the protection and help it can get, what with weird post-preggy hormones and exhaustion. Please pick me!!

    Good luck all


  15. Putting out the positive energy that I will win this hamper as my valentines present to myself this year :)

  16. After a stunning weekend of sea and sun, my hair needs some serious TLC, and this looks like just what I need. That's my short & sweet story!

  17. I have had my hair ombred and it is in desperate need of a little something something. The best way to wear ombre is to have loose waves...because of my hair, that means, blow-drying, GHDing and then only using the curling iron. Girlfriend needs this!

We were are an Hawaiian themed birthday party, and unbeknownst to the party, the birthday girl had thrown BLUE FOOD COLOURING in the swimming pool to make it more 'Hawaiian'. My hair still has a shade of green and it feels terrible!

  25. I would LOVE to win because I had Ombre hair which my hairdresser talked me into doing, I HATED it so after 2 weeks of "sticking it out", I was ready to chop off my hair into a Bob but hairdresser talked me out of it, dyed the ends back to brown but my hair still feels like straw! I could cry!
