Adopt the Pace of Nature: Her Secret is Patience - Ralph Waldo Emerson

So I did it. I jumped on yet another bandwagon. This time, the Eco Styler Gel Bandwagon. I was actually pleasantly surprised that this stuff lived up to the hype, as a lot of things just don't work with my finicky hair. It took me all of 20 minutes to wet, and halfheartedly plop this stuff on my hair. You see, I was too afraid to spend an exorbitant amount of time on my hair only to wind up putting it in a pony [as it happens quite often].

Upon applying, I instantaneously got tons of curl definition and sheen, this gel also elongated my curls much more than anything else I have used. But because I didn't really have high hopes for this gel, I didn't put a leave-in conditioner underneath. It was ok though, my hair didn't have that crunchy, flaky, crazy feeling most gels, and curl creme's leave behind. Another bonus is that it didn't take forever to dry! Did I also mention that this stuff is only $2.99 [It's on sale this month at Sally's, I believe the reg price is $4.79], now granted it isn't THE best stuff for your hair, but I don't wear this style that much anyway sooo I think I can live with it for now.

I picked up this dress for ONE WHOLE DOLLAR, at Jet Rag's sidewalk sale. Every Sunday they have a pile of clothes on the sidewalk for people to rummage through. A lot of the clothes are ehhh, but every once and a while I find a jewel! This one still had the tags attached!
