I have a love/hate relationship with my hair. And if I'm being honest, the hate side rules most days. I would chop it to shoulder length, but my husband likes it long, so I'm humoring him. He has been warned that he's only getting a few more years before it goes under the knife.
As a little girl, I had long, wavy, blond-ish hair. Similar to today, except back then it was my natural color. Apparently my mom was better at styling it than I am, because it looked pretty cute, uneven bangs and all.
Then the teen years hit, and this happened. Gah...I don't know what we were thinking in the 80's.
Present day. Clearly not my natural color, but at least the curls have relaxed into a nice wave again. Most days I just blow it dry and leave it at that. I'm extremely hair challenged, and things like buns, pony tails and braids elude me. I blame it on the fact that I don't have a daughter to practice on.
When I was contacted by Irresistible Me to try one of their products, I first looked at the hair extensions. Their high quality clip in hair extensions are made from human Remy hair, and come in a variety of colors and lengths. Ultimately, I decided they weren't for me. (Reference "hair challenged" above - I'm sure I would have made a mess of them).
Instead, I was intrigued by the Sapphire 8 in 1 Complete Curling Wand. The wand comes with eight interchangeable barrels to create many different kinds of curls, from ringlets to finger waves. I found the wand very easy to use, and in only fifteen minutes, my hair looked much fuller and wavier.
Not bad for the first try, and I'm sure I'll get better as I get used to the wand. It heated up quickly, was light weight, and easy to handle. As for storage, each barrel has it's own pocket in the bag, which rolls up into a nice compact size.
Irresistible Me also carries wigs and hair accessories. Their customer service is outstanding, and they have a generous return/exchange policy.
For now, I guess I'll keep my long hair. Maybe I'll have more "love" days with my new curling wand.
