I’ve been as big a fan of retail therapy as the next girl (as evidenced earlier this week) but I’ve also come to realize that often just buying something doesn’t mean you’ll end up using much less loving it. I posted about this (Decorating) a little while ago but have now decided I need to keep it in the forefront of my mind with a weekly mention of something already in my life that I love. You know- the whole attitude of gratitude thing only I don’t like to go on about it like that.
Our winner this week is a pro who has made my life so much easier and my reasons to whine less. For a couple of months now I’ve been having hair issues (about which I could whine a lot) but one of the ones that bothered me the most was static. You’d think it wouldn’t exist in a place where it has rained for the last 2 months but it does. Oh yes, it does. When you pull a sweater over your head, run a brush through your hair, live with central heating, it’s there.
I finally gave up and asked my wonderful hair stylist about it and when she found out I used an old plastic bristle brush when drying my hair she laughed and said problem solved.
Here is my new best friend (I told you I was lonely!). Officially he is known as the Conair Ion Shine thermal ceramic metal barrel round brush but I call him favorite brush #1. I don't get the technology but supposedly the ions are what help dry my hair smoothly and ensure that even on day 2 I don’t have jillions of tiny little hairs sticking up all over my head every time I move. I don't care how it happens it works! He may have only cost $6 but he gives me one less reason to freak out over my hair. And I have no idea why I say ‘he’ but there you have it. My little bit of sunshine in rainy PDX!
