I’d like to do something light and rainbows now. Especially after the heaviness of the below…
SO here you have it:
Thanks to Absolutely Bananas, I’m going to have some fun and list some of my favorite beauty products.
First, please know that I have brows. And by brows, I mean BROW WOW WOWs. Heavy, thick, Frida Kahlo brows. I’ve been waxing these suckers into submission for 20 years now. And waxing alone doesn’t do: I also need glue, smoke and mirrors to keep them in place.
So luckily for me, there’s this stuff:
Anastasia’s Brow Gel (in clear). It’s akin to super glue (but wash-offable super glue) and it grooms my brows like nobody’s business. And I’m pretty sure Anastasia knows her business because she looks like she runs hairy and has probably tested this
glue gel to within an inch of its life.
Next in line is Ojon’s Restorative Hair Treatment. I’ll back up to say, I hated it at first. As a hair treatment, it just didn’t work for me. Plus, it smelled like coffee, which is good in my mouth, but not on my head. BUT, as a hair pomade — I love it. Just take a little bit, warm it between your fingers, and apply to tame unruly hairs. It works like a charm. But please note: my hair texture — unlike my brow texture — is weak and wimpy. Also frizzy and dry. Unmanageable and lackluster. So if you share my hair attributes, Ojon may be for you.
Finally, my favorite hair treatment in the world:
Davine’s Vegetarian Miracle. This elusive elixir fixes everything that’s wrong with my hair, without weighing it down, which is a rare and welcome treat.
It’s a bit hard to find and semi-expensive (but lasts a long time), so I’m not using it right now, which is why my hair is not pictured along with it.
Love, your friendly hairy-browed, weakly-follicled San Diego Momma.
