Lesson of the Day

Today I learned I should never use a small round brush with stiff plastic bristles on my superfine hair. That is not unless I want my husband to spend the next hour and a half picking my hair out of the brush with a pencil.*

In case I haven’t mentioned it before, I have a fabulous husband who continues to amaze me. (While sitting still as he tried not to pull my hair, I couldn't help think if it were me I would suggest cutting the brush out with a scissors).

*My first change of the year - a new hairstyle is not going well.


  1. I have thick, curly hair and had the same thing happen to me the first time I tried to torture it straight. Small round brushes with stiff bristles are demon tools and should not be trusted. My hair is curly again and shall remain so forever and ever.

  2. Super fine, super straight. I share your pain. Only short works for me. Hope the new style gets easier to "tend". And, a big hug for the husband.

  3. Tara,
    I am so envious of your curly hair. Sorry to hear you had the same experience with the brush. DH wants to know how you got it untangled. I guess for next time….

  4. Webb,
    Sorry to hear you also have fine hair.

    I was looking around at the gals at the gym and realized none of them curl their hair anymore. I didn't want to be one of those women that wear the same hair style for 20 years. I had my stylist change my layered bob to one that is short in the back and long in the front. I am to style it with a flatiron. A tool I didn't own 'til Friday. She suggested I use a small round brush to add body. She did say make sure you buy the blah-blah-blah type, which I obviously didn't grasp. At the store I did ask the sales clerk if this is the brush I want. She said yes. My plan was to practice my new style before going into work for a couple of hours on Sat. I didn’t get in ‘til 11:00. I told my boss I’ve already had a day. He said, “I can imagine.” Hmm no he can’t.

    Also, I noticed the young girls at the grocery store are curling their hair – they have a no combed out look. There has to be some kind of lesson in this.

    I did give my hubby a hug last night.

  5. Ouch!! You have a great husband. And round brushes with stiff bristles should be avoided at all costs. I think they get caught in any hairstyle!

  6. Michelle,
    I am beginning to wonder why they even make round brushes with stiff bristles.

  7. Hi, just to let you know I pinged you:

  8. AHHHH. I did this a couple of times and it ruined my hair. Never again! It is so frustrating trying to untaggle it.

  9. Frau Tech,
    Thanks for the ping. I am thinking I will write my response on one of my Saturday Coffee Social posts.

  10. Daisy,
    I continue to be surprised by how many of you have experienced this. I still can't believe they still sell them.
