I’m Sorry, I Can’t Stop Talking About My Hair.

Lavender Pixie via The818.comI know I just posted about the emotional side of my hair last week, but ULTA Beauty sent me this massive box of hair supplies in honor of their “Love Your Hair” event and really, how could I not talk about ALL OF THESE INCREDIBLE THINGS? (Okay not all of them — I only have two inches of hair total — but the very best of them? You bet your butt.)

aeecbd3cb34611e2866d22000a9f137d_7Before I went for the Pixie, people kept warning me that having short hair was going to be higher maintenance than having long hair which I could just toss in a ponytail. And I was of course like: whatever. So then of course “they” turned out to be right, and I had to [quickly] figure out how to make my low-maintenance-hair actually low-maintenance.

Enter ULTA Beauty’s giant box of love.

IMG_5290Ahhh, I a tiny 1/2 inch ceramic flat iron from Hot Tools was just the ticket to banish bedhead (or as we call it in my house, chicken-butt head.) So I’m grateful for that. Also since I bleached my hair five times over to get it white enough to take this color, Chi’s Iron Guard helps it from completely disintegrating.

IMG_5311I swear by Rusk for color treated hair. I’m psyched to try the 34545235452 color-protective products they sent me, but I was mostly just thrilled to get two economy-sized bottles of the product that is already my go to for maintaining color. Also it smells delicious.


My final favorite find from ULTA Beauty’s box of hair magic? In order to preserve my color, I try to only wash my hair on days I work out. That means things like dry shampoo come in really handy. (I know, gross.)

GAH I love this giant box of fun. Everything in it (including the stuff I featured above) will be available as a Daily Steal during the 21 day Love Your Hair event.

Hair is the greatest, isn’t it?! If you have a Pixie Cut, I hope you find some of these things as life-altering as I do. If you have more hair than I do, you might want to take the #ULTAHairPledge to love your hair for a chance to win a year of free blow-outs. (Tweet your hair pledge with the aforementioned hashtag after 5/12 to be eligible.)
