EZ Combs Might Not be So Easy to Wear

EZ Combs are all the rage right now…Personally, I’m not sure what to make of them. It’s nice to see different types of hair accessories on the market. Especially when some of us have naturally curly hair that’s difficult to style. It’s nice to just clip it up and go. Although some of us get tired of using the standard pony tail. We want to dress it up a bit! Below is a brief look at how to use Easy Combs.

Advantages

  • Includes a hairstyle guide and if you like there’s a instructional guide here for a similar product on YouTube called the Hair Zing.
  • You can lie down or put your head back against something quite comfortably unlike some hair clips.
  • Doesn’t pull or pinch your hair so it’s quite comfortable to wear and doesn’t give you a headache.

Disadvantages

  • If you have thicker hair you might not be able to fit all that hair in an updo hairstyle.
  • This style doesn’t suite everyone. For myself I feel it looks a tad gaudy.
  • Made of cheaper materials.There’s some reports of  the EZ Comb elastic breaking when stretched out.
  • The elastic part  doesn’t really bounce back to the original shape. Who knows how long it will last.
  • Doesn’t seem to work on fine hair. It ends up falling out.

EZ Combs might not be for everyone. If you’re interested, you can buy them at Walgreens for $10 so you won’t break the bank at least trying this product.

How to Clean Your Dirty Curling Iron

Burned-on hairspray and gel can make your curling iron or hair straightener just down right gross. How do you get all that gunk off anyway? Here’s how!  Of course it’s always a good idea to unplug and allow it to cool first. Start by wiping the outside plastic surfaces with a damp, soapy sponge.  Then choose one of these methods to clean the barrel.

Ideas to clean a curling iron or flat iron

  1. Dampen a cotton ball or cotton cosmetic pad with rubbing alcohol or nail polish remover and use it to swipe over the soiled area.  Rinse by wiping the barrel again with a cotton ball or cosmetic pad dampened with warm water.
  2. Sprinkle baking soda on a wet cloth, then wrap it around the dirty barrel.  Let it sit for a few hours with the curling clamp in place.  Then unwrap the cloth and wipe the barrel clean.
  3. As a last resort to scrape off stubborn residue, make a paste of baking soda and water. Use the baking soda and water paste and gently wipe the barrel with a scouring sponge and that doesn’t scratch pots and pans.Rub it on the barrel then wipe it again with a damp cloth to remove the soap and other residue.

Hairagami Brings Us Advances in Odd Hair Technology

Hairagami owes a huge debt to Princess Leia. Why you ask? Hairagami’s rather tortured looking hairstyles seem to fall outside the boundaries of manstream style and taste.  What female wouldn’t want a Princess Leia updo? Now you too can look like Carrie Fisher and walk around with cinnamon rolls strapped to your head.

The scrunchie is the foundation for pony tailed styles.
