Yep, this is my hair, a bird’s nest.

Happy Sunday!  I don’t know what it is about getting older that really jacks with your hair.  I have naturally curly fine hair that is really very bird nest looking.  I know being in menopause contributes to my dilemma, but come on!

It’s bad enough that my skin has taken on that crepey look of an old lady, but my hair! It’s a constant struggle.  I take hair vitamins, I use every hair product imaginable to tame my wild ass hair, nothing seems to work. I’ve been to countless hair stylists over the years, seems as if they never know what to do. I’m sure their are many other women who have the same problem.  I have a bathroom closet full of hair products that don’t do what they promise. (big surprise there).

I’m just glad I don’t smoke, as I have a true fire hazard on my head!

Thanks for stopping by.

TREsemme’ Expert Repair & Protect 7 Pre Styling Spray Review

Happy Mother’s Day!  I recently purchased Tresemme Expert Repair & Protect Pre-Styling Spray for less than $5 at Walmart.  I first read about it in “O” magazine, if Oprah Winfrey is recommending it, I’m all in.  I have naturally curly, fine hair.  As I’ve gotten older, my hair has become a frizzy mess. Being in menopause doesn’t help.

Here’s a description from Walmart’s website:

Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray with Biotin

Why use the Pre-Styling Spray?
Our Repair & Protect 7 Pre-Styling Spray is an essential step to help maximize styling results and protect hair from damage. The professional-quality formula is designed to help shield hair from heat, prevent split ends, and to leave hair smooth and shiny. Your hair is left protected and ready for you to keep on styling for the look you want! TRESemme Expert Selection Repair & Protect 7 Pre- Styling Spray:

  • Professional-quality formula, with Biotin, protects hair from heat and helps prevent breakage and split ends
  • Makes hair more manageable and maximizes the results of your styling routine
  • Light-weight conditioning formula allows you to layer styling products on top
  • Safe to use on color-treated hair
  • Use as the final, essential step of the Repair & Protect 7 system, it helps protect against 7 different types of damage – brushing, blow-drying, bleaching, coloring, curling, flat-ironing and braiding.

I have to say this is an amazing product.  I use it along with mousse, and it really makes my hair soft and less frizzy.  I was in a hurry recently and forgot to use it, and just used mousse. Dang, won’t be doing that again. It’s 4.2 ounces and I use 7 pumps for my shoulder grazing length. I have always liked the Tresemme brand, and they are always coming out with great new products.  I’ve used salon products, and this is comparable for a fifth of the price.

Frizz Free Finally-Zero Frizz review

Happy Sunday!  I think I may have finally found a solution for my frizzy hair.  I have naturally curly, super dry, fine hair. As I’ve been in menopause for eight years, it has gotten out of control.  Like it’s a good thing I don’t smoke, as my hair is a serious fire hazard!

I’ve been contemplating cutting may hair all off, because I just can’t make it look right.  I wear my hair up most of the time. I’m constantly switching up my hair care, looking for anything that will make the frizz go away. Not to mention I’ve spent a ton of money. It’s very frustrating.

Here’s my usual hair-frizzy, curly mess.

Fire hazard!

Here’s me after using   Zero Frizz Conditioner   and  Zero Frizz Keratin Smoothing shampoo. I bought the shampoo and conditioner for only $1.98 each at Bed, Bath and Beyond.  I think it’s being discontinued. Some BBB’s have awesome health and beauty products.  Of course, I find something I like, and now I can only buy it online. I also used Sally Hershberger Curvaceous Curl Perfection Cream  for $10 USD.  It worked great in my curls, and is a heat protector. I let my hair dry naturally, then straightened  it with Simply Straight Straightening Brush which I purchased at BBB six months ago.

Not too shabby for four day hair

I’m still suffering from Bell’s Palsy, so this is as much as I can smile right now. I went to BBB today and bought up all the rest of the Zero Frizz shampoo and conditioner they had. I now have 6 bottles of shampoo and 2 bottles of conditioner. I only wash my hair twice a week, so I’m guessing this should last me for awhile.

If anyone knows of a similar product that does the same thing, please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by.

Middle age and frizzy hair WTF!?!?!?!??!

Why is it when you get older as a woman your hair gets frizzy? I’ve been in menopause for six years, and my hair just keeps going down hill. I mean I have naturally curly, fine hair, which blows in of itself, but this frizzy crap has got to go. I try to straighten it the best I can, which is ok, until I go outside.  I use to have pretty decent hair, now I feel like I should be staying up all night buying tons of crap I don’t need from QVC.

It’s depressing. Why just on Monday of this week, my hair was so smooth that the hair combs I had in were almost falling out. When I woke up on Tuesday morning, I looked like Albert Einstein! I swear it looked like a rat had crawled in bed with me and made a nest on my head! I’m trying everything I can short of shaving my head (which ain’t happening) to control this wiry mess. I recently bought some extensions, both curly and straight. The color was perfect, but my hair just doesn’t blend with them because of the frizz. I have a bathroom closet full of so many failed styling products. I was using John Frieda’s 3 Day Straight, which use to work really well, now not so much. I’ve done research up the ying yang trying to get some relief.  I guess I’m lucky my hair looks good up.

I swear my hair looks like three squirrels are having a menage a trois on my head.  If anyone can recommend any good products, I would be eternally grateful.Frizzy hair 10-7-15

On the upside, it’s a good thing I don’t smoke, as my hair is truly a fire hazard, and it lookAlbert Einstein 10-7-15s better than Donald Trump’s!
