There’s no place where the phrase “the grass is always greener” is more true than when it comes to women’s hair.
Curly-haired women bemoan the frizzies and want a sleek, straight look. Straight-haired women complain that their hair is limp and flat and wish they had some bounce and curl.
My hair is of the super fine, super straight, super limp variety. I spent most of the 1980s with bad perms and a constant supply of Aussie Sprunch Spray. Over time, I’ve learned to accept my straight-haired fate. That straight hair came “in” with celebrities helped a ton, too.
I still struggle with flyaways, however. They’re horrible in three instances: in the winter, when I try on clothes while out shopping, and when I travel.
I’m about to head out for a weekend jaunt by airplane, and I am trying to mentally prepare myself for the fact that I may spend most of Saturday and Sunday looking like I stuck my finger in an electrical outlet.
I wish I had seen these Ted Gibson Hair Sheets before it was too late.
These sheets appear to be little towelettes for your hair. Each one is individually wrapped, like a wipey you get at Kentucky Fried Chicken. Not that I ever go there.
The product works simply enough. You wipe the towelette – on which there’s a formula of amino complex, lavender oil, wild orchid extract and natural plant aroma Ã‚Â - on your hair. It’s supposed to diminish the look of dry ends without looking greasy, as well as give your hair a shine and lift. It also claims to protect your hair from UV damage.
Sounds like a miracle product to me!
Allure magazine named this one of their Editor’s Choice beauty products in 2007 (okay, maybe I’m a little behind the times!), so I’m guessing that it went through some testing to get selected. Or someone paid Allure a lot of advertising dollars, I’m not sure which!
Reviews, on this product, however, seem a little mixed. I read some from several different websites. Many say that indeed, this is a miracle product and it’s great for when you get flyaways from airplane travel. Others say it doesn’t do a thing and is a waste of money.
Hair Sheets come 10 to a box and I found them for anywhere between $14.95 and $25. For $15, I’d be willing to give this a try to not have Albert Einstein hair.
