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 The stuff she pulled out of that closet I hadn’t seen outside of a movie, that’s how old and outdated they were.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.
Wide Tooth Comb
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.
