So Sorry - Teaser Tuesday

Yes...I'm a slacker and completely forgot about Teaser Tuesday. So here it is..Teaser Tuesday...on Thursday a week late.

I am reading March's book. "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie" by Alan Bradley. I'm loving this book.

"With a boy you never know whether he's smitten or gagging, but with a girl you can tell in the first three seconds. Between girls there is a silent and unending flow of invisible signals, like the high-frequency wireless messages between the shore and the ships at sea, and this secret flow of dots and dashes was signaling that Mary detested me."

Next week....Mila.

Friday Finds

A few years back, I worked for an awesome professional hair care and cosmetic contract manufacturing company called Graham Webb. One of the perks of the job was at-cost professional hair care - the best around (if you ask me). One of the lines that we developed was called Halo and was designed and created specifically to lengthen the time required between hair colorings.

I LOVE the Halo products and totally stocked up right before the lay-offs (they relocated to LA). I still have at least enough shampoo to last me through the rest of this year and probably next year as well. One of the things that I couldn't stock up on because of the shelf life of the stuff, was the mousse and gel. Shampoo and conditioner generally last a lot longer than the styling products...

I digress...

I ran out of the best (but somewhat expensive) mousse (Brit Style Mousing Wax) a couple of months ago and have been looking for something else. Since I was a loyal Pantene customer prior to my days at Graham Webb, I decided to start there. And I'm so glad I did. I love their mousse.

I tried the Full & Thick one first. I don't really need a lot of help in this area, however when you're going curly it's generally better to go big. I loved it. It's a tad on the crunchy side for me, but it totally kept my frizz at bay and it washed out well.

I'm now trying the Curls one which doesn't have as strong a hold and I'm not sure if I'll keep it or go back to the other one.

A few of you have curls and try to hide them. Let it go. Stick some mousse in it and love the hair you're in!
I'm hoping that their shampoos and conditioners have improved as much as their styling products have because that's where I plan to start when my stash runs out.

For next week, I tag Lori :)

(Can't remember if she's already been picked or not...?)
