Did you ever hear the phrase, “ Like letting the crackhead guard the evidence locker?” So, yeah, I got a job at a Beauty School with an attached professional store where I get a discount. I am in heaven. I have a maybe two inches of hair on my head, but by God my Beaker hair is well coated with some A-Class product!!
The first thing I got my grubby little hands on is Big Sexy Volumizing Spray on Shampoo. As with most purchases, I have no clue as to why I bought it. Perhaps the whole “big sexy” persona reminded me of my misguided youth. The product packaging totally has a “ Shout at the Devil” vibe. C’mon don’t lie Sexy Hair….you know it’s all about Tommy Lee.
As an oily gal, I am always looking for a way to get that “second day hair” control. Unfortunately for sisters of sebum, second day hair usually looks like you were communing with BP ( too soon?)
So I follow the directions and spray at the roots, wait a while, and then brush out. My hair went POOF! and it it was standing on end. I was completely rocking the Adam Lambert look. My hair was big and all over the place. It also felt quite a bit thicker, which made me really happy.
Happiness…it never lasts…because about 20 minutes in my hair started to feel icky. You know when you were a kid and you decided to dump a whole thing of baby powder into a bath tub so you could do an “arctic” photo shoot with your dolls? Ok, that was probably just me, but you can totally get the gritty coagulating paste of nasty that was left in the tub and probably cost me the My Little Pony Stable that Christmas. That stuff was ON MY HAIR.
I think if you have longer, thicker hair this would be a great special event “thing.” Heck, I still may use it for a special event, like going to the WalMart to get socks.
