I have crazy hair.
The sight of my hair first thing in the morning is enough to stop songbirds from singing. Small mammals flee from my pre-combed presence.
In order to make my hair look half-way presentable, I have to spend a lot of time in the bathroom wetting, scrunching, gelling, and diffusing. It’s like having a sixth child.
Now, there are ways to compensate for bad hair days. I think the French Braid was invented by someone who got tired of all the maintenance involved in having naturally curly hair. I have never mastered the French Braid, however. My fingers aren’t cut out for the kind of acrobatics involved in weaving my own hair behind my head. I blame my mother, who refused to give me a fashion-forward big sister when I asked for one in seventh grade.
Alas, my hair sculpting talents have remained limited to the ponytail and the messy bun. Lovely, right?
Sometimes, I try to compensate by adding hair accessories. Sadly, I do not have a good track record with hair accessories. Note, with horror, the example below:
It’s okay, You can pity me.
Thankfully, Lilla Rose consultant Sarah Ives came to my rescue. She promised she could help me, even though I have absolutely no aptitude for hair styling because my mother did not give me an older sister when I asked for one in seventh grade. I believe I mentioned that already.
Sarah told me about the hair products she sells, which include a hair clip called a Flexi. It is so ingeniously simple, even I can use it. Plus, I can use it a million different ways to create beautiful hairstyles in no more time than it takes to pull it into a ponytail. Lilla Rose even has hairstyling tutorials for people like me. Check out the video gallery!
Sarah wanted to send me a Flexi to try, but first I had to watch a sizing video. The video is short and extremely helpful. I would not have known what size to order but the video makes it easy. I needed a large Flexi. But OH! It was too hard to pick just one. They are all so beautiful. So I made Sarah pick for me. Yep. I did.
This is what she sent me.
The clip is simple and straightforward, but also very well made. It has no plastic parts and it really does “flex” around all my hair. It holds so well, I was able to keep it in while working out and it didn’t come loose and it didn’t tug uncomfortably. In fact, I kind of forgot I was wearing it at all.
I love the fact that I can look nice and put together without spending time “doing” my hair. With the Flexi, I can style my hair in just a few minutes and walk out the door, ready to go. No birds stop singing, no small animals flee. It is a beautiful thing.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. You want one. But you can’t have one. You can have two! That’s right! Independent consultant Sarah Ives is sponsoring this giveaway, and she has generously agreed to let the winner choose two Flexi products (valued up to $16 each)!
