New Easy-to-Clean Hair Brush

Do you spend the time to remove the hair and clean your hairbrush every so often, or do you toss it in the trash and purchase a new one? With 6 heads of hair to manage, I remember my mother filling a basin with an ammonia solution and soaking combs and brushes in every week when I was little. The time consuming tasks of removing the hair from the bristles and core, soaking, rinsing and drying was a mother’s labor. Usually done Saturday nights, we ate hot dogs for dinner because there wasn’t time to cook a big meal with all the hair washing and hair brush cleaning going on.

Well now we’re talking sustainability when inventors of the new easy to clean hairbrush created their new product.

Finding a New Hairstyle

My hair is hitting my shoulders, all one length now and I’m getting tired of it falling forward. Blessed with very thick hair, it is starting to bug me all day.

Thinking should I cut it short again? Ah freedom! But then there will be the curling iron to keep all the cowlicks calmed down. Should I layer the length I have now? Should I go longer? So I looked around and here are my finalists:

The Short Bob:

HaircutBob

 

The Shoulder Shag:

shoulder-length-shag

 

Loose Curls at the Chin:

chincurls

 

The Jane:

jane-fonda

 

And The Jen:

Jennifer Aniston

 

A few details to help you decide: I’m 5’10” tall, with a very long neck and a small (“pea”) head.

Which one do you pick for me??
