Hair product review, and an awesome hair accessory.

I'm going to apologize now for whatever weirdness I said in yesterday's post.  I don't even want to read what I wrote, I'm so embarrassed! lol!  Apparently I drunk post instead of drunk dialing.

Anywhoo, I have a hair post today!  If any of you actually read my blog, you may know I have a very love/hate relationship with my hair....and for the most part it's usually at the hate side of things.  My hair is uber thick and frizzy.  It also can not for the life of it, decide if it wants to be wavy or strait.  At the base of my neck, it's stick strait, and the top half of my hair is wavy.  It's quite a pain!  99.9% of the time, I have my hair in a pony tail cause I just don't want to deal with it.

I've been using these products for a little over a month now, and I think I can give a thorough review.

Dove's Nourishing Oil Care with weightless nutri-oils.  It states on the label that it "revives dry, rough and frizzy hair", and claims it "smoothes up to 100% roughness and controls frizz".  Right up my ally!

Lemme tell you, I LOVE these products.  I bought the shampoo and conditioner first, and found the "treatment" somewhere else.  My one gripe is that you can't find these products everywhere Dove products are sold....I don't know what's up with that.  Anyways, these work so well for my hair type, I definitely wouldn't claim 100% frizz control, but I would say at least 75% for me, which is amazing.  This makes me hair so incredibly soft too which is a huge plus for me.  I've tried everything from high end to drug store products, and this is by far the best I have found for my hair.  My hair feels healthy, and looks healthy again!  Yay!!

Now let me talk about my hair donut!  I LOVE this meshy thing!  I've seen tutorials on youtube for the "sock bun" and I have to admit, I don't think it would work for my hair, but this thing does.  I found it at Sally's months ago, they come in 3 different colors, blonde, auburn and black.  And they are probably 2-3 bucks.  Totally worth it (though as you can see, mine is coming apart).  What you do is put your hair in a secure ponytail, then pull it through the hole in the donut, and then you work your hair around it.  I don't use this like you would a regular bun, but kind of spread the hair around it (if that makes sense).  Then I take 4 spin pins (doh, should have reviewed those too!!  I absolutely love them!) and actually work them through the mesh, and what I end up with an updo that lasts ALL DAY!

Sorry for the crappy's apparently very hard to take pics of the back of your head by yourself!

Sorry for the hemorrhoid look at the bottom of the bun, I fixed it after I took these pics : ).  I love my meshy bun donut so much!  I'm always down for an easy up-do!


  1. I giggled at "hemorrhoid look". Haha! I need to find one of those!
