Lots of Hair Straighteners and Curling Irons on Clearence at Target! ~ I got the Remington Waving Wand!

I have been wanting to get a wand style curling iron for some time now.  However as a straightener addict who is addicted to her CHI flat iron, I didn’t know where to begin but knew I didn’t want to spend $100+ on one incase it ended up at the bottom of my hair product basket, like the rest of my curlers.
 

So today I was walking through the clearance section of Target (Lowell, Ma) and they had tons of wands on sale!  The clearance prices ranged from $7-$30 depending on the brand and style.  I have liked Remington in the past and considering that was the one marked down to $7.48, I grabbed it!
Most of the Remington wands were on sale, I chose the Remington Waving Wand.
I cant wait to try it out, I’ll post a review when I do!

What I Love This Week: Paul Mitchell “the conditioner”

What am I loving this week?
 
Paul Mitchell’s “The Conditioner” Leave in Conditioner
 
AKA:
 
Lilly’s Curly Hair Magic Cream!!!
 
 
Lilly’s hair is CURLY, she gets the massive curls from her Brazilian daddy, and I have no idea how to manage them!
I have tried so many products.  All the little kids sprays did nothing, the oily serums I use for frizz weighed her hair down to much because its so fine.  I use the Jergens shampoo for curly hair twice a week and condition it every time she takes a bath but her hair would still be a matted mess of knots.  Combing it out was a horror show, with her held down between my legs as I tried to get through the knots.
I took her for a hair cut the other day after school and her hair was its usual knotty mess.  I apologized over and over again as the hairdresser tried to pull through it.  I explained how it only took her wearing it down for minutes to become this way.
On the way out she showed me this bottle of leave in conditioner, telling me how amazing it was.  I grabbed it with low expectations but at my wits end.
NOW
We call it the Magic Cream!
I use a little over a quarter size dollop after her bath and rub it through sections of hair and now the comb literally slides right through her hair!  If she has a really nasty knot, I’ll add some more directly to that spot and pick at it for a second and it unravels so easily.
It was worth every penny!
oh and you can use it to shave your legs in a pinch and as a hand moisturizer according to the back of the bottle.


Target Bargain: CHI Hair Straightener

While perusing the clearance section of Target Yesterday, I came across this mega deal!
 
 
 
 
 
If you use CHI products, you know there straighteners retail for over $100.  I got my first CHI about 10 years ago as a birthday gift after complaining non stop about how I couldn’t find a straight iron that would straighten my hair without leaving it a frizzy mess.
I have been hooked ever sense!  They leave my hair silky smooth with one swipe and they last a really long time (I would be replacing my drug store brands every couple months, these last years)
 
However with the price tag attached to them, I usually search ebay or wait for a holiday that I can ask for one from the hubby. 
However as I was putting through Target yesterday, I thought I’d go down the back of the isles to get to the registers…. Where they put all the departments clearance.  As I walked closer to the pile of boxes that clearly had “CHI” across them, I thought for sure they were placed there by mistake.  Then I saw the clearance stickers!!! $29.98!!!
I threw it in the cart and walked swiftly to the price scanner, still not believing the price.  It was right!
Target right now has these amazing straighteners marked down from $99.99 to $29.98…. a savings of $70.01
