Honey's Helpful Hints #2

I was so blessed with how many of y'all tried and loved
some of the cleaning products that I shared {here}.

This second installment of Honey's Helpful Hints will be on....
Hair!


Now I am by no means an expert on hair!
My sis-n-law Heather?..yes!  My daughters?...yes!
Me?...no way!
But I do have a few secrets that I can share.

My hair is baby fine, thin and straight.
Left to itself it  has no body in it at all.

When I don't use all my "secrets" it is flat to my head. 
like this....

I mean these are some skinny pig tales!

 A few of the things I've learned to do for my type hair to give it the appearance of a bunch of hair is:

1. I always blow dry my hair upside down!  This is the foundation of my "fullness".

2. This teasing comb!  It is a must!
(and I tease my sections before I put rollers in them)

3. Hot Rollers

When I  use these three secret weapons, my thin hair "plumps" up...


OK...it was a little TOO plump on this day!  Whoa! lol


So those were my top 3 tips UNTIL...
 I was introduced to this...

I have NEVER been able to fix my hair using a curling iron.
First off, no curling iron would ever curl my hair.  I would just get a little waviness.
And secondly, what little wave it created would "poof" disappear five minutes after curling it.


But this little darling is a miracle wand!
Look what it did to my hair!





That's crazy curly for me!!
And the best part is that it doesn't fall out!  The curl lasts!
It looked like this that night!

So all of you lovely ladies with thin, baby fine, hard to curl hair..
run to Sally's Beauty Supply and buy this..

They cost about $40 but I was blessed with a deal where you buy one, you get one free!!
So check for sales.. but I would have paid $40 bucks for it! And you folks that know me personally, KNOW that is a SPLURGE for me.
I even can get curls that last with this fat one!


I know all you sweet girls who have thick hair or hair with body is thinking "what in the world is she so excited about?...big whoop!"

But coming from a girl whose momma would slip into my room at night with a flashlight to see if my perm was still curly or if it had fallen out again (no lie...true story)...  
This is big news!!
A curling iron that actually curls my hair!

There ya have it.
I hope it helps a fellow sista out.

ps.  I won that gorgeous striped scarf I'm wearing in the pics!!  Thank you so much Nicole!
Y'all can check out her sweet blog {here}.  She bought it while she was in China! I adore it!!

  2. I also struggle with the flat to my head hair situation. It makes me insane. I used to have real thick hair (I am Italian) and then I had surgery 7 years ago and it all fell out and got real thin..yuck. Your sis in law Heather is a friend of mine and everytime I see her she has perfect hair! I will have to try one of those curling irons.
