Quick & Easy Way to Beat the Heat! Product Rave: Spin Pin

Nothing is worse than hot hair sticking to the back of your neck in the summer.  At work lately, I've been shoving pencils in my hair hoping it'll keep it up (how teacher-ish of me, lol). When I saw a commercial for Goody's Spin Pin, I knew I had to try it out. The corkscrew design supposedly does the job of 20 bobby pins! Too good to be true?

Holy cow, this thing is A-MAZING! I picked up 2 packs (they come in 2s) because I read in a Fashion & Beauty forum that you might need more than 2 to keep your hair up. Much to my surprise, when I twisted the pin into my bun, I only needed one! Where the hell was this product when I was 13 & taking 5 ballet classes a week? Not only did it keep my hair neat, but the bun stayed perfectly tight. I even did a headbanger move & shook my head vigorously to say "No" to Sergio, lol.  If you have long hair & want something easy, pick up the Spin Pin, you won't be disappointed. I'm keeping one in my purse, one in my car, & one at work, because you never know when you'll need to throw your hair up.

Hair Savior! Product Rave

Although Serg doesn't admit it, I have a feeling he likes my hair better straight than curly. He can't stop touching it once it's been blown out & flat ironed... a tedious, exhausting process. He seemed a little hurt the other night when I snapped, "You're going to make my hair greasy!"

Because my hair is naturally curly AND because I spend hours torturing it with extreme heat to get it straight, washing it everyday is not an option. Enter TRESemme Fresh Start Dry Shampoo.

This stuff is a godsend! Just about 4 sprays throughout my hair, focusing in the front, & it looked freshly washed with added volume. The smell is pleasant enough & there is no stickiness.

I'm so glad I got this stuff before it started to get really warm out... now I know my blow out can last longer than ONE day. Who wants to sit under a hot blow dryer in 93 degree weather?!
