Still Here, Just There More

Hello - I have not in any way abandoned this blog!  I'm just busy participating in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) on my other blog, and I don't have the energy or the ideas to post in both places every single day.

So for the rest of November, I'll be here, but it will be only occasionally. I'll just be there a lot more.  :-)

See you soon though - I promise!

Hair Glop

I am lazy with my hair, I think I've said that many times before.  However, I do like it to look nice.  I have a lot of hair, but it's very fine, and very soft, so it's hard to get it looking like much of anything.  And it's straight to the point where it will "curl" for about half an hour, and then it looks like I didn't ever even think of trying to curl it.

Anyway, I've tried lots of products, some on my own, others recommended by friends and various stylists.  Some work better than others, but I'm still looking for THE ONE.  I have a haircut appt next Saturday at a new place, so we'll see what suggestions I get from that person.

I do like it when you can get a sample.  That's why I tried these:

And that is just in the last year!  Each one had some nice things about it, but none really helped to style my hair, and some were too sticky, no matter how little was used.

I've also tried various drug store products, and ended up returning every single one.  Over the years, I've tried big brands, small brands, and just things that looked promising, with no success.

For a long time (about 2 years!) I used this and really liked it.  Then I don't know if my hair got tired of it or what, but it joined the ranks of the others.

I know I will never have luxurious, thick waves, or I won't look like models in salon magazines.  But I really do hope I can get a good cut and some product recommendations next Saturday.

Do you use any products?  Are there any you really really love?

Retro Beauty - Cake Mascara

I was just reminded of this product - do any of you remember it?

Cake mascara!  I remember my mother had this exact brand/case, and I was always fascinated to watch her put on mascara.  Later in her life, she used mascara in a tube, which is more common now, but this picture brings back memories.  Mascara seemed so mysterious when it looked like this!

Having said that, I have trouble enough with the tube, I can only imagine the "look" I would have after using this product.  Though the friend who reminded me about this was telling me that cake mascara is making a comeback.

Probably not in my house, though.  :-)
