My Mane Squeeze

Back many years ago when I was studying publishing at NYU we all got to take a "field trip" to visit a magazine. Well, the one that everyone wanted to see was Rolling Stone. I mean, of course, because that office had to be the most youthful and well... rock & roll. We were selected at random and guess which mag I got...Good Housekeeping. Jayme say what? I was in my early 20's, and to be honest, that just sounded so boring. Boy was I wrong. Once at the Hearst Corporation, we all got escorted upstairs to see some of the actual testing labs. It was awesome. They were testing kitchen products and we got to go inside and watch. I never again looked at products that had attained the honor of having the Good Housekeeping seal the same. The seal means that the product does exactly what it claims to do...and let me tell you that they test the bejesus out of them before they are approved.

So this brings me to one of Mendi's best product finds ever...The Remington Style Therapy - Frizz Therapy Flat Iron. I bet you guys would never guess that Mendi's lovely red hair is naturally curly would you? And I'm not talking about wavy, I'm talking tight curls that some people pay to get. Well she found this fabulous flat iron a few years ago at Target and has raved about it ever since...and she has the hair to prove that this is the best flat iron on the market right now. So not too long ago she used the Remington on my hair and it was amazing. My hair can be a little big and frizzy and I don't like to spend lots of time to get my hair looking nice. This was a game changer...I went out and bought it immediately. The difference in my hair was insane.

Oh and in case you were wondering those students that got picked to go to Rolling Stone complained about how surprisingly boring their visit turned out to the end my group had the most fun magazine. :-)

Let us know what hair tool you can't live without or if you have this particular product. We'd love to find out!

  2. Yay glad you got the packages. :-) Enjoy!!

  3. @ Steffy - It's the best. We swear by it!

  4. VA weather as humid as Houston? If so, then I really need to get this. I have a Chi which is great and all but if this can straighten my hair AND lessen the frizz significantly, then I am sold. And it's cheap! I have lioness hair and it's HUGE! I've been wanting to blog about before/after shots, but I am too scared to show what my hair REALLY looks like after blowdrying it. hehe Thanks for sharing this ladies! Ya'll are great!

  5. I awarded you with THE STYLISH BLOGGER AWARD!!! XOXO

  6. @ Linh - Not too sure if VA and Texas are the same as far as humidity. But I'll tell you that VA is super humid and my hair tends to grow it gets bigger and bigger. This flat iron really does the trick. sound like us...we are nervous to show before and after shots but I'm thinking it would fun. Mendi might not think so though! :-) But please let us know if you end up trying this out.
    Oh saw on Twitter that you were tweeting in the it!!
