Cowboy Magic Detangler and Shine Review

Cowboy Magic Detangler and Shine Review


So, last week I wore my hair in a bun. Every day.  When I got in, I foolishly loosened my hair, allowed it to dry in the most haphazard of ways, then slept on it (scarfed up) and in the morning, I dampened, moisturized and put it back in a bun.  Repeat 5 times.
At no point did I comb through my hair, or attempt to undo the matted wackadoodle way the hair had dried…I just kept bunning it back up….


Saturday I go to wash my hair…. it was a DISASTER.  I should’ve taken a picture, I think I was just too  horrified to think about the blog.

I shampooed, DCed and tried to detangle one section (barely a section because I wasn’t able to make a part due to the tangled matted mess) and failed miserably.

visions of a buzzcut danced through my head.

I went to the cabinet to look for the slippiest product I had and found this!!!

I got this via a swap from naturally curly (I told you about it HERE and about my haul HERE)

It’s a product for animals.

I didn’t know this at first.

I didn’t care.

The directions say use a nickel sized drop and brush through your (animal’s) hair.
I used a silver dollar sized drop and combed through my hair.
Didn’t work.
I used another silver dollar sized drop….and then….magic.
My hair was just a slippin and a sliding and I was able to work through my mess and get my hair back to “normal”

I lost A LOT of hair.  I wanted to cry looking at the amount I had to toss away.  (But I consoled myself thinking it was a week’s worth of buildup, plus the detangling loss)


I would recommend it to anyone who has mega tangle issues regularly, or to anyone to just keep on hand in case you make an idiot move like I did.

I’m so grateful for ROBIN who brought this to the swap.  I owe you Robin.  You saved my hair life!

Wedding Dress Shopping!

Oh girls.
I went dress shopping today with mommy.  It was a lot smoother than I expected.  I didn’t cry or have a “this is the one” moment like the girls on Say Yes to the Dress do, but there were a couple that I fell in love with.

We started at RK bridal because they were having a sample sale, but they didn’t let us take photos of me in the dress.  The one I really loved there was a Casablanca A014.  I cannot find photos of it ANYWHERE on the interweb!  It’s like it doesn’t exist or something!
The next one I loved at RK was this one by Mori Lee:

We then went to Davids Bridal and I tried on one I saw in a magazine and loved.

(if you look in the mirror behind me, you can see mommy in her orange shirt taking the pic hehe)
When I was at davids I loved the dress above the most.  It was slim and not too heavy and felt great, I felt beautiful in it.
I also loved this one below, and in the store, not as much as the one above, but now looking at the picture I feel like this one looks best on me:
The only thing is this dress feels/seems so much bigger than I originally wanted.  It’s got sooo many layers and all this material all over the place! And I would have to bustle the back and I’m not sure I like that look.
In the end it was a great day, productive, I learned what does and doesn’t look good on me, and I was surprised by what I ended up loving.
I didn’t know it takes so long for dresses to be ordered and that the alteration process was so long either, so I’m glad we started looking today since we’re 8 months out. EEP!
What do you think of the dresses?
How long did it take you to find your wedding dress?
And, did you have the OHMYGOD THIS IS THE ONE moment?
