The other day my mom decided that it was time to clean out her beloved closet. Now, when it comes to clothes she is a serious hoarder and has even started creeping into the guest bedroom closet and mine since I am away at school.
I knew this would be a daunting task that would pretty much take the entire day. The stuff she pulled out of that closet I hadn’t seen outside of a movie, that’s how old and outdated they were. I’m not going to lie though there were basic staple pieces like this gorgeous trench coat that she bought more than a decade ago that is still trendy today. It just goes to show you that some things never truly go out of style.
As a creature of habit I often spend an endless number of hours trying to make decisions. I am never one to really jump too far out of my comfort zone, I want to make sure I make the right decision so I only have to do it once and more importantly so I am not disappointed. This pretty much applies to every aspect of my life…except my hair.
Like my mom’s shopping habit, there is definitely a war between the product junkie in me and the planner, and I am constantly kicking myself for impulse buys that turn out to be busts.
The good news is that every trial and error has a few successes embedded in there and that’s how new staples are discovered. Along the way I have discovered a few things that always work in my regimen and much like that trench coat these products never go out of style.
As the runner-up to finger detangling the wide tooth comb* is probably one of the first things healthy hair divas purchase. We all know the rationale behind it: wider teeth means gentler detangling.
If your wide tooth comb* also happens to be seamless that’s even better in terms of being gentle enough with your hair. Make sure you get a quality one as your wide toothed comb will be will you for the long haul. I mean this literally because the longer your hair gets the harder detangling becomes and the more necessary this comb is.
