Try It Tuesday

A couple of weeks ago, I saw a Buzzfeed post in which two ladies tried the Sleep Styler—overnight curlers guaranteed to give you awesome curls or waves without any styling the next day. I wanted to know if these were legit (because, I’m a mom and I don’t have time to do my hair every day) so I bought them for $19.99 at Walmart!

So, first thing you have to do is wash your hair and let it air dry to almost completely dry. Then, you apply the rollers. It was a little tough for me to do this by myself because I have long, thick hair and my arms got sore super fast. So I enlisted help from Huff the Hubs! He did a great job! I was a little nervous about sleeping on these things all night, though.

The next morning, I checked to see what damage had been done while I slept.

They actually stayed in place pretty well!

 

Here’s what my hair looked like immediately after taking the rollers out:

After a little teasing and hair flipping, it looked like this:

I LOVED the results! My hair kept the curl pretty much all day (it did go a little flat because of the Oklahoma wind and heat)! Next time I use them, I think I’ll try a product to help keep the hold a wee bit more. The instructions actually recommended to add a product but I literally had none. I mean, I had hair spray but I wasn’t going to put that on wet hair.

Have you tried the Sleep Styler? What were your results? Share in the comments below!

Try It Tuesday

Fair warning, guys: today’s Try It Tuesday is about to get real, real fast.

 

The other night, my tummy was in some major pain. No, it was nausea. It was…. The other thing. Or, lack of the other thing.

Yep. That’s what I’m talking about.

 

Anyway, I heated up the rice bag and laid it on my tummy whilst moaning and groaning to an oblivious Huff the Hubs who was sucked into his world on Minecraft. I tried to distract myself and got on Pinterest and saw my sister sent me a pin. This pin:

It was titled: “The Magic Poop Button”.

 

(Yep. I just went there.)

 

Intrigued, I clicked the link. It took me to a blog written by a mom that had tried this on one of her kids. She said she had “almost instant success” so I tried it out.

 

What you do is, you lie down on your back, measure three fingertip widths down from your belly button, and then push that point with your finger.

 

This acupressure is supposed to help with backups and ease the pain.

 

So, I thought, “What the heck?” and tried it.

 

I measured and then pressed down as hard as I could, stopping short of “holy ^%$# this is agony!” territory. Though I didn’t have “instant success”, it did help with the pain after about a minute! I was even able to fall asleep! I could not believe it!

 

Take that, people that say acupressure is hokum!

 

Now, in an effort to take your mind off of bowel movements and make today’s post a little less gross, I have another Try It for you.

 

All over Pinterest there are life hacks, teacher hacks, mom hacks, etc. While perusing Pinterest, I found this:

 

hair style hacks

 

Its lazy girl hair hacks!

This is perfect for me because: 1. I’m so lazy when it comes to my hair and 2. I am hair illiterate. I blame my chubby, non-nimble fingers for my lack of ability to make my hair look awesome. Do you know how many times I have tried and failed at doing the sock bun? Too many to count.

 

Moving on…

 

I tried one that didn’t look too difficult. This one:

So here’s my before:

And here’s the after:

Yeah, not so much. My hair = ratchet. I told you I suck at this! I just need someone to come over and do my hair for me. (Hear that, Morgan? I’m talking about YOU!)

 

Have you ever tried any of these hacks? Did they work for you? What about the other Try It?
