My Give as you Live experience:
Every time I go to the hairdressers I feel a million dollars when I leave, but the feeling doesn’t last, I can never get it to look as good as the stylist does. They always ask if I would like to buy the products they have used on my hair but to be honest you would need a bank loan for the shampoo and conditioner alone!
I put one of the products into the search box on the computer and there were loads of matches for Tigi Bedhead ‘Hard to get’, I found one at a great price on

Even better the Give as you Live box popped up, having not used the app before I wondered if I would have to fill in lots of details about me and my purchase, but no, I bought the product as normal and straight away I was told I had donated 68p to Cancer Research UK.

I’m not saying I am perfectly groomed all the time now, but I feel as if at least I am making the effort!
