My mother has been raving about these new hair products for months, and then over our Portland weekend she showed me all her new ‘little baby hairs’ (as she likes to call them). While I’m generally a pretty serious skeptic about hair product, she did have quite a bit of new growth.
And then she pulls out a bag full of product – for me! What a sweet mommy! She definitely knows how much I despise my thin, flat, lifeless hair – we lament over our sad hair genes all the time.
All I dream of is volume! I even tried the Rogaine shampoo once, but didn’t really notice a difference. But after seeing the thrill on my mother’s face, I’m ready to give it a shot.

It’s only been a few days, but I’m already a bit in love. The tingle! The Kleen shampoo and Mint conditioner are such a magic combo, my scalp feels amazing. But it’s the thickening serum that’s really got me. Starts tingling right away, which practically has me convinced it’s working already.
I’ll let you know when I start seeing my own new little baby hairs sprouting up!

Confession time: It may have been this photo of the original Buffy the Vampire Slayer¬†from Miki’s facebook that convinced me this stuff must be awesome.

Happy Friday! The happiest of Fridays for me. I’m not quite done with jury duty, but my new job promotion starts officially on Monday! Hooray! Whenever a big change comes along in my life, I like to make a small one to ring it in. Generally, that means new sheets when I move into a new apartment, but this time I’m thinking new hair. My amazing hair stylist is going to be so excited. Usually when I comes to my hair, I am rather, um, boring. I chopped it off once in high school, and went from blonde to brunette a few years back, but other than that? … Yeah. Not much.
While I’d love to do something totally out there, this isn’t quite the time to do it. So I’m thinking something fun, stylish and just a bit more grown up than my current lack of style.
