How is your hair straighter/curler costing you extra cash every month? How can we reduce this?

Hello pretties!

I’ll keep this short and sweet as I know you must be dying to know how you can save on your electricity bill? What has my electricity bill have to do with my curler I hear you say?

Most of us know that when it comes to saving money on your electricity bill there are a few obvious things we can do such as:

  • Turning off the lights when we leave a room
  • Taking a shower rather than a bath
  • Configure your computer to energy saving mode
  • Filling up your washing machine, tumble dryer or dishwasher. For one full cycle rather than two or three small ones.
  • Using Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (CFLs) as they use five times less electricity and last several times longer




Any electrical device with a heating element such as a kettle is a high costing outlet. You might have known that, but did you know you’re probably using two or three of the most expensive instruments in your house on your hair?


  • GHD
  • WAND

All of these hair instruments should be [1] turned off after use and [2] unplugged from the wall completely.  PHANTOM ENERGY is the electricity drawn from outlets even when they are turned off at the wall. YES THIS STILL COSTS YOU MONEY.

I’m not saying stop using your hair straighteners or rollers but definitely turn them off, and then unplug them from your wall.

PS. Don’t leave the pilot light on your TV, DVD Player, Music System, Dishwasher, Computer or Dishwasher. They are all still plugged in with the standby light on and tick, tick, ticking away costing you a few cents every day/week adding up to  hard earned cash.

I hope some of you will benefit from this post. As a little extra tip let me tell you I always pull out my plugs from the wall. My toaster, microwave, kettle, coffee machine anything I can. [Not your fridge and freezer obviously]. I labelled them too so I can easily grab the correct plug in the morning too.23032339_1925429777785024_1933230999236416761_n
