My Newest Best Friend

Not that I don't still love my old best friend, I use her every day, but this.....miracle in a bottle deserves some attention. I have very fine, very straight hair. Hair that's always short, because I look like a corpse with long hair. You see, it clings to me, limp and lank. I love having short hair, I feel sassy and cute. I realized, however, after posting this picture, that I've had more or less the same hair style for over 20 years. And I'm not old enough for that yet. I've tried mousse, wax, expensive styling mud that makes my hair a stiff sculpture, I've slept in velcro rollers, in short, I have done everything I could think of to have the fuller, sexier hair that has eluded me. Until now. My friends, I give you:


TIGI Bedhead Super Star Thermal Blow Drying Lotion
After I get out of the shower, I squeeze out a nickel-sized amount in my hand (it's a liquid) and I work it through my hair. Then I blow dry. I'm still trying to get the hang of the whole round brush thing. Sometimes I just wish I could take my head off, plop it on the counter and blow it dry there. Until I can do that, I'll keep practicing. This ambrosia leaves your hair light and bouncy, not sticky. It makes me want to cry tears of joy.

Oh my! How I also wish that my head was removable. Hair stylists have tried so many times to teach me how to do my hair "their" way - with the coordiation of two hands going on my head at once! But alas, my head is not a Glamour Barbie Head that swivels on a pedastal. It is stuck. I am stuck. I may try your new found concoction of joy!

Where's the picture of this sexy new hair your talking about?

Yeah, I thought about including a picture. I couldn't find any that were poufy and I didn't look like a dork. I'd either have my eyes half closed or making a weird face. Alas, you'll just have to accost me in the grocery store parking lot and feel my hair!

I just got my hair done (professionally--woo-hoo!) and it makes me sad every time I do my hair because it looked so stinking cute when Rachel did it, but it's a disaster when I do it. Hair wax or some other such foreign substance needs to come into my world.
