hair help granted: hair products {GIVEAWAID!}

So my friend Mandi knows about hair. I need hair help. We all know this now. She sent me her Lilla Rose hair sticks. Check her site and find her on Facebook. We met through the blogging world and I’ve found her to be super sincere and sweet. Back to how she’s totally helping me . . .

I have thick, postpartum, almost falling out, still thick, still likes to dreadlock itself hair. Me and my elastic hair binders just are not in a good place in our relationship.

Enter hair sticks. Enter it’s out of my face and feels “cute” maybe even “presentable” maybe even “not a mom of three.” Let’s not get carried away here. Let’s just say it can be out of my face. And not in a hair binder. And I could even wear a special pre-baby days coat. Looking not like a mama.

Who are we kidding.

Easy peasy pudding pie. Yes, that was Blessed Mother Teresa on my teeshirt. Yes, those are the boyfriend Gap jeans Blythe talked about I found on Twice.

And then she sweetly sent two pins for SweetPea. This is a girl who rips things out of her hair. ALL THE TIME. But this? She loved.

For me? SO pretty, mama!! I’m going to wear it for sleeping time.

And then she went on to tell her brothers that she is a sweet flower. No lack of confidence over here, folks.

And showing off her fav new dress, a little Joules number I had to buy after I got all those amazing outfits from them. She decided her clip went very well with her dress. #girlmomproblems

And then back to the action of opening a book package. Rebecca, I can’t wait to read & review it!

    Ohh, love the hair sticks! I think I’d choose the silver daisy ones 🙂 (p.s. thanks for the giveaway Mandi!)

  2. Gina on September 23, 2014 at 8:29 am

    ah! Love the Freestyle or Peals hairband! I keep looking at these and haven’t tried any yet!

  3. Jeni on September 23, 2014 at 9:32 am

    Not sure what my hair needs, but these are pretty!

  4. Amanda on September 23, 2014 at 10:01 am

    OooO 🙂 Love the freestyle sticks and headband. Fun! Love the way the sticks held your hair too! Pretty!

  5. Meryl on September 23, 2014 at 10:03 am

    Ohhh, the hairbands!

  6. Katie on September 23, 2014 at 10:35 am

    I’d love to try the freestyle sticks!

  7. Megan on September 23, 2014 at 10:58 am

    I’m pretty sure the extra large flexi would tame these long, thick locks. I was thinking the Roman Stone one looked cool, but all of them are pretty. I’ve never had much success with the hair stick things. What makes these work so well? Did the flexi ever help you, Nell?

  8. Annery on September 23, 2014 at 2:45 pm

    Love ALL the flexis – especially the Celtic knots.

  9. Rachel on September 23, 2014 at 3:11 pm

    I would love to win an XS kaleidoscope flexi 🙂

  10. Danielle on September 23, 2014 at 7:03 pm

    I like the Flora Metals Flexi and Soft Pink and Rose Hair Sticks.

  11. Ana on September 24, 2014 at 8:15 am

    Love the Flexi Purple Cluster! So pretty!

  12. Mia on September 24, 2014 at 11:33 am

    This Mama always needs hair help with her little girl. I know she would LOVE Celtic Butterfly in Copper is unique in design and will alight buns and twists with wings of color. Set of two 3″ pins.
    Loved it all!

  13. Laura on September 24, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    So much pretty! I would love to get a flexi-clip and see if it works on my fine hair. Thanks!

  14. Kirby on September 24, 2014 at 2:42 pm

    The Lovely Circle Iris Green in extra large. My hair took off growing in the last few weeks of pregnancy and no hair thing can contain it yet!

  15. Mary on September 24, 2014 at 4:29 pm

    Hair sticks, hair sticks, hands down, hair sticks… much better than the tinkertoy stick I’ve been using.

  16. KS on September 24, 2014 at 6:35 pm

    ALL the hair sticks….maybe especially the floral ones….

  17. Sarah on September 24, 2014 at 8:35 pm

    I love all the headbands! The pink or daisy for my girls…. the silver or the pearl for me 🙂

  18. Allison Kinyon on September 26, 2014 at 12:35 am

    I am LOVING the Freestyle Hair Sticks! I haven’t tried out the sticks yet, but I’d love to!

  19. Jennifer f b on September 26, 2014 at 6:44 am
