Monday Edition: My Favorite Things

I have finally found it-something that will actually hold my hair in an up-do. I have always been so jealous of women who could quickly twist their hair up, secure it with a claw, and go on their merry way. I can twist my hair up, secure it with a claw, and five minutes later my hair is a mess again. I have very thick hair, but it is very fine in texture. Translation: My hair slips out of any thing I try to pull it back with. This is definitely not good for those days when you wake up late. For me waking up late either means being very late to work because I have to completely fix my hair or looking like a disaster because all I have time for is a messy ponytail that may or may not stay up.

No more messy work ponytails for me! I found a hair clip that magically holds my hair in place. Am I beginning to sound like an info-mercial? Anyway, I found it at Wal-Mart after seeing my sister with one. It is made by Goody (if you follow link, it is the 4th or 5th picture), and the best way I can describe it is as a sideways hair claw. See picture below.
Try it out if you struggle with keeping your hair up. I absolutely adore mine. Oh, and the best part. They are really cheap. I think I paid $2.50 for mine! You have to love good hair at a bargain! :)

Thanks for this post. I am in the same boat that you are in with the hair, and when you have children you need something that fast to fix the hair.

I need to get one! My hair is so thick and it falls out of a clip all the time!

I have thick hair so I always enjoy trying new clips. I always bust my elastics! I'm going to walmart in a bit. I should look for this.

And thank you again for the giveaway!

Those look like they would work great. I have short hair and I've had so many bad hair days lately, nothing would help. Tomorrow I get out the scissors.
