Sarah: Tool of the Week, a cautionary tale

Thank you,


for teaching me that all shine serums are not created equal. You smell tasty, but make my hair almost instantly greasy. You are being demoted from behind-the-mirror storage to green-tupperware-of-bathroom-products-never-to-be-seen-again. I'm sorry. It's not me, it's you.

I worried that it no longer existed, but was happy to find that the superior shine serum,


still exists. Glass makes my hair silky smooth and shiny, but without feeling product-y and greasy after I style it. A curly haired girl needs a fair amount of help to get straight hair that doesn't feel like straw, and Glass does the trick. I love you, you tiny vial of expensive magic.

Yes, I even like it better than AFTERPARTY, as plugged here.

I'll take your Girl Toys. I use a tiny squirt of it mixed with Superstar blow dry lotion before blowing my hair straight. PRODUCT TRADE!

Wait, what are you giving me in return? I am intrigued by this "trade"...

This reminded me of a time in high school after I had discovered Laminates Liquid Shine Polish drops. I was convinced I had found the answer to all of my hair problems. Once I finally got my paycheck and was ready to head to the mall, my mom said that I couldn't go and we got into a huge fight. I was crying and throwing a major hissy fit, because she just didn't understaaand!

Gabrielle, I have heard about your bangs in high school, and I have to say I respect any product that can pull off such a feat.

Sarah, we should totally have a night where everyone brings cosmetics, toiletries, etc., that they don't like, and we can take home and try each other's rejects!

Genius! Like a clothes-swap, but with fewer sweat stains!
