My Hair, A Different Sort of Post

Let me first say that no one has given me any beauty products to try. I'm going to talk about something I ordered on myself and paid for it out of my own pocket. I doubt I've ever posted about any beauty product, ever, this is a first. Also, I'm lucky if I put on face powder and lipstick these days.

I'm going to talk about my fine hair, which has been an issue all my life. Rarely have I had a decent haircut, so when I can grow it out and pull it back, woo-hoo! That's the stage I'm at right now and I'm enjoying being able to put my hair up quickly if I need to go someplace without notice.

I don't even have what you would call a styled haircut.

I'm not one to watch beauty videos. I find them boring and most of them are just selling products or lifestyles. But I've been watching Dominique Sachse, a news reporter who makes YouTube videos and I'm actually enjoying her. My bestest friend Lauri (who has awesome hair, btw, and is always put together), kept sending me links to Dominique's videos and telling me she did this or that with her hair and how much she loved her hair cut and wants a similar style. Me being in a place where I'm not overly concerned with my looks (I'm downright frumpy, and don't even ask about my non-existent eyebrows), thought, great for you, Lauri, but not for me.

But the more I watched Dominique's videos, the more I liked her. Besides being the sweetest person ever, Dominique has a way of making things she does with her FABULOUS hair seem very doable. That said, there's no way my fine hair could do anything close to what her thick head of hair will do, but I CAN use a few of her practical tips and tricks to manage my hair more successfully.

I have tried product after product on my thin hair, shampoos, mousse, conditioners, and hairsprays, that claim to boost volume. I've even tried putting nothing on it and that didn't work either. I became intrigued with the hairspray Dominique uses called Kenra Volume Spray #25, 80% VOC, 16-Ounce. She used so little of it yet she claimed her hair held all day. I thought, hmm, right, yeah, okay, sure, heard it before.

So I searched and was surprised at the price of the hairspray, steep for my usual let's buy it at Target or Safeway attitude. I thought long and hard before ordering a can, but I did it. I could have purchased a smaller can, but I went whole-hog and got the big one. I also ordered a little teasing brush as well called the Spornette Little Wonder Boar-Nylon Bristle Teasing Brush.

I have been using the hairspray the last couple of days, and you know what? I LOVE IT! A few short spritzes and I'm good for the day! It's not sticky like the stuff I've been lacquering on my hair, you can touch it and you wouldn't even know I had any hairspray in my hair. It also brushes out quite nicely at the end of the day. It's magic. Seriously.

So I just wanted to put this out there because when I like something, I like everyone to know about it. What floats your boat?
