About Me

I'm a 23 year old Business Systems Analyst planning a DIY-heavy wedding to the love of my life on 9 . 10 . 11. Other then wedding planning, I spend most of my time trying to stay in shape or playing with my 3 dogs...Gabby, Dudley, and Tyson. I hate cleaning and almost never go a day without wearing something purple, and I hope you can keep up with my ADD blogging style!

In Love With New Hair Products!

So, I have really weird hair.  Really weird, and really thick.  Really weird, and thick, and really coarse.  It takes forever to dry.  I refuse to blow dry it when it is warm out because it takes so long and I end up sweating.  So, when it's warm out I depend on a turbi-twist to suck up as much water as possible, then I sleep on it, and it's almost dry the next morning.  In the winter I still shower at night because even though I don't mind blow drying it, doing so makes it ::poof:: so then I sleep on it and it become manageable enough for me to straighten with a flat iron.

I don't think I've ever found a hair product that I absolutely love for when I'm letting my hair air dry.  See, some pieces are really quite curly, some are dead straight, but the majority of it is just quasi-wavy ready to frizz out at the first sign of moisture in the air.  That is, until recently...

I got my hair cut and colored about a week and a half ago and my hair dresser said they had a product she thought would be great for my hair when I'm not straightening it.  I get my hair cut at Ulta, so anything I buy I have 60 days to return if I don't like it, so of course I bought it...

They are Redken Curl Wise 14 Defining Cream and Redken Nature's Rescue Radiant Sea Spray.  I don't know how they're doing it, but it is gross as all hell out and my hair isn't a giant poof ball (or pulled back into a bun due to it becoming a giant poof ball).  I have, like, the perfect amount of "beachy" waves that it looks styled with an acceptable volume given that it isn't 1985 anymore!

And I came across these heavenly hair products just in time for hair-poofing season!  If anyone out there struggles with thick, coarse, kinda curly, kinda not, completely un-manageable hair, I totally recommend you try this stuff out!  I put the cream in when my hair is wet, and still wrap it on up in my turbi-twist.  Then I sleep on it and spray it with the "radiance" spray when I'm getting ready in the morning, give it a little scrunch, and I'm good to go!

Does your hair start a rebellion when the humidity rises?  Do you have a favorite hair product to tame your mane?

And don't forget to go enter yourself in my give-away!
