The Wet Brush
I've been busy the last couple days getting ready for and throwing my friend's baby shower, so I've slacked on posts. I'm looking forward to sharing a few DIY decorations with you tomorrow! For now, a look inside my beauty bag.
My hair routine has always been really low maintenance. Although I'm jealous of girls with long super shiny super smooth effortless-looking beach waves, I've never been able to master it. How is that even achievable anyway? Perhaps I've drawn a short stick with coarser-than-average hair. Don't get me wrong, I love my hair. But growing up it was a different story. I had a pretty long awkward hair phase. I think I went a year or two in high school without taking it out of a ponytail, because I just didn't know how to care for it. It's taken some heavy experimentation over the years to find the right products to tame my mane. My hair used to be unmanageably frizzy. It's naturally curly, but I've been coloring it regularly since 2006 & I think that has relaxed it - I have to work for the curl these days (I was dark red when I started the blog, if you'd like to sift through old posts).
Anyway, these are some of my favorite products (I also threw in my favorite post-shower body lotion - a must try!). They've been doing wonders for me and I'm happy to suggest them to anybody that feels like they need a bit of a hair overhaul. I'm not fancy - I mostly let my hair dry naturally, occasionally I'll blow it out, and if I'm going to wear it curled I use my flat iron to make the ringlets. I've never been good with a curling iron.
Today, I want to introduce you to the Wet Brush.
The last time I had my hair done, my stylist was telling me about her latest product find at a hair show: the Wet Brush. This thing is really lightweight (I'm used to a much heavier brush), so it was surprising to me how well it glides through my coarse hair - wet or dry. I wrote about the brush on Makeoverly (read the post here). The creators advertise this brush as the miraculous Wet Brush: "With its unique IntelliFlex™ bristles, the Wet Brush runs effortlessly through hair, detangling without pulling or tugging. There’s no pain, no tears–whether the hair is wet from the shower or dry; curly or straight; thick or fine." The bristles don't look much different from those on my old hairbrush, maybe a little thinner and more flexible. They feel great on my scalp, though, and they do manage to detangle without pulling. No more hair breakage, yay! They also offer a Shine brush, with added bristles that distribute natural oils through the hair shaft. I haven't tried out that version yet, but I would love to!
I'm thrilled to announce that I've teamed up with Wet Brush to spread the hair love on to you guys. They sent me the original Wet Brush to give away to one of my readers!
