Luxury haircare

29th April 2005 at 01:00
Here's some pure indulgence for individual readers - though if you want to cheer up some revision-weary Year 11 girls this package may do the trick.

Hair and Fashion by Caroline Cox and Lee Widows is a luscious VA book, price pound;30, tracing the history of hair from Marilyn Monroe's peroxide curls to David Beckham's mohican. L'Oreal Professional, the book's sponsor, is giving Friday readers the chance to win a fabulous haircare and styling kit, specially designed to keep coloured hair in tip-top condition. Each kit contains six professional products worth pound;55.80 including shampoo, conditioner, gel masque and smoothing balm, not available at high street stores.

Just tell us the name of the mythological woman who was locked in a tower and released her golden hair for her lover to climb. Two lucky readers win both treats: the book and the L'Oreal kit; eight runners-up will receive the kit. So who was she?

Send your answers, marked L'Oreal, by email to or on a postcard to Friday magazine at the TES address. Don't forget to include your name, address and contact phone number. Competition closes on May 5.
