I was born with really fine hair. R E A L L Y fine hair. As a child, my mom kept my hair cut short because she just could not find a style that would do much of anything. As a teenager, I remember being envious of the other girls who had long, thick flowing locks, while I really had to work on my hair to give it any type of fullness.
When I was a teen, I spent countless hours with a curling iron and hairspray, trying to get my hair to do something it just did not want to do. We didn’t have all of the fancy hair styling tools we do these days, so it really was quite a bit of work.
Now that we’ve come so far with the internet, the possibilities are endless for just about everything we might need to make our lives easier. And to make us look gorgeous. Take for instance the BaByliss root boost which creates volume without back combing. Yeah back combing – something else I tried for fullness, but it only left my hair tangled (and the occasional round brush completely stuck in my hair). I’m pretty sure that this hair tool would have made my life so much easier. Or perhaps even the BaByliss big hair tool for some much needed volume.
Would life have been simpler had I been born later? I am not sure, but I do know that had these fancy hair tools been invented while I was younger, that I would have been a much happier teenager, and my mom would have appreciated that!
