I wanted to share with you all a product that I tried and absolutely fell in love with. Every since I had kids it seems my hair became thinner and less full. I hate how my hair looks through out the day because even if I use hair spray trying to keep some volume in it, it just goes flat. I don’t like the hair sitting flat to my head. I like it to have a little lift in it making it look full and healthy I suppose. I’ve struggle for years you guys and tried various volume boosters.
I recently started trying out L’ange products and decided to give one of their brushes a try since they were on sale (they are still on sale). I purchased the Siena Nylon/Boar Paddle Brush recently. They say that the 100% boar bristles leave hair looking shinier, healthier, and more manageable by evenly distributing the scalps natural oils. And let me tell you it’s true! Since I started using this brush I have noticed a BIG difference in how my hair looks and how it feels. I blow dry my hair after showering using this brush and typically only wash every 2-3 days. I found that this brush has made my hair feel and look like it has more volume.
Not only that, I also find it super easy to brush my hair with this Siena brush! I hate brushing my hair and had been using a round bristle bush before this because my hair, even being thin, tends to know pretty easily and hurt when being brushed due to snags. The same goes for my oldest daughters hair. She has super think and long hair that is a hot mess to brush. She hates brushing her hair and it always knots up. Not to mention she is super sensitive to the way it feels when brushing. Well I will tell you she gives it a big thumbs up. She loves this brush and I intend on buying her one of her own. Since I bought this brush I haven’t had to hound her to brush her hair and she just goes and brushes it. What a surprise.
You can order one of these Siena Paddle Brushes here. Chosoe shop and brushes to look through and find this one or choose a different one.
Honestly, I didn’t want to share pictures of the front of my house because well….look at the mess on the front porch! Ahh…. truth is we are in the middle of so many home renovation projects this year an it’s been pretty hard to keep things organized and where they need to go. But I wanted to share some of my frugal tips as I go. I’m no pro by any means, and I don’t have a ton of money to be able to sink into home renovations. We are doing everything ourselves. I did have my eye on this beautiful green door with a fancy top window at Lowe’s. You know how much front doors cost?! Let me tell you even when they offer a 15% sale it is still a lot of money. I just couldn’t justify right now spending that sort of money on our home.
Yet our door was so beat up and out dated. Washing it didn’t help and it had a lot of dents in it. So it clicked one day to grab a can (we used two) of spray paint to freshen up the front door. I wanted to do green to match the roof, but then I felt it may not match with the shutters being black. I felt white was going to get too dirty again. So here we are with a black front door. For me it’s my color so I’m loving it. Not sure what others may think, and that’s okay.
It’s most ideal to take the door completely off the hinges and paint it that way to avoid any messes. But if that is not an option you can totally tape off the edges using painters tape (Dollar Tree sells some rolls) and newspaper to cover anywhere you don’t want painted. It’s probably a good idea too to tape off the hardware, but my plan is to replace the door locks soon too. They are so outdated and I hate the color. Another way I kept spray paint off the edges was using a large cardboard piece to keep the sides clean.
Here is a closer view of how the door looked after two coats of spray paint. Like my door hanger? I made it myself…. check out Kristy’s Handmade Creations! I think the door came out pretty good considering how beat up it really was. For $12 how can you go wrong?!
Here is what it looks like in full view. My goal is to save money to buy a new screen door. Can you believe those are pretty pricey as well?! I want one of those full glass ones to really show case the door more and give it a cleaner updated look. For now I am happy with the frugal improvement.
