HairZing Give Away!

There was only one product that I really was on the lookout for at BlogHer, and I knew that a blogger named Angel Smith would be handing them out at some point. HairZing is a hair accessory that is so pretty and so simple to wear. It's perfect for a woman who wants to look elegant despite the fact that her toddler is wiping his nose on her shirt, and she skipped brushing her teeth to get the oldest off to the bus stop on time. That means HairZing is the perfect accessory for a girl like me.

If you know me in real life, then you know I've been blessed with a massive mop of brown hair that has a mind of its own and aspirations too. My hair wants to be a WWF wrestler. Yes, this may be bizarre, but it's true. Since the mid 1980's, the sheer weight of it has cracked dozens of plastic clips and snapped quite a few ponytail bands. I do my best to keep this unruly mess under my control, but on high-humidity days, it seems to gain power and explode into a mass of frizz, just to show me who is the boss of me after all.

To my delight, I found Angel at BlogHer and she handed me a HairZing. Would this clip finally put my mop in its place? The next day, I tried it out in the morning before my trip home.

What I like about HairZing is that it doesn't pull my hair so tightly that I get a headache, and it doesn't cause split ends. It looks like I spent a lot of time fixing my hair, but it takes only a minute to put on. It's stylish without being girlish, and you can wear it with jeans or a formal gown. it looks great both ways.

My HairZing caused a commotion in the airport, when it set off the metal detectors. The upside to this awkward moment was that I was able to live out my super model fantasy, pulling the clip out of my hair and shaking my head around a bit like my namesake Lauren Hutton did in an old-school shampoo commercial. The security guard paused in handing me back my HairZing. You know she was thinking of confiscating it and wearing to work the next day herself.

The final test of this wonderful product was when I met my family at baggage claim back in Islip. My daughter, whom I call princess, grabbed me by the face and turned my head in her hands.

"Oh MY! What a lovely clip Mama. You look fabulous."

That settled it. This HairZing was awesome for sure since my princess knows fabulous when she sees it.

Sounds like just the thing for me; the "scrunchie" look makes me feel like a teenager again (and not in a good way!). :) So, please enter me, too!

Dear Internet Traveler,

Welcome to my writer's blog, started about six years ago for fun. Over time, the writing I have posted has ranged from personal reflection, to Long Island history research, to tall tales for my own amusement, to feature articles for local newspapers. As you can see from topics listed here, I travel in many mental directions in regard to interests. Click on the tabs and labels to explore my strange mind which senses that you may be having a criss-cross day. If so, perhaps this blog will distract you. However, please note that if you tell me my blog is beautiful just to get me to advertise rhinoplasty surgery and cheap drugs from Canada in your comment, I will ask the gods to give you a tail that cannot be concealed.
