When I was younger, I had stick straight hair. I could basically get out of the shower, comb out my tangles, let my hair air dry and it would be perfect. (Of course, I wanted nothing more than the head of tight curls my cousins were born with. Figures, right?) Then I got pregnant with LJ and something changed. At first it was great – with those prenatal vitamins my hair was thicker and stronger than it had ever been. After LJ came along, I went through the usual hair loss which was actually pretty minor compared with what I was expecting. But when LJ was around one, I noticed something odd.
My hair was no longer straight. No, I didn’t suddenly have the head of curls I had always wanted. It was more like my hair had bends in it. It was straight on top and then did a half-hearted attempt at a wave around ear level and then just flipped whichever way it felt like it at the ends. It looked like a mess. And so began my need to do something to my hair everyday – either use a curling iron to try and make the most out of those lame curls or a straightening iron to smoosh them into submission.
Over the years, I’ve tried all kinds of products to make this whole process easier and (hopefully) less damaging. Some of the products worked wonderfully but cost me a small fortune. Some did not work at all, but still cost me a small fortune. You can bet that when I finally found products I liked, I stuck with them! I’ve found that TONI&GUY® products not only work well with my hair, when I buy them at Walgreens, they don’t cost me a small fortune!

If I am going to be straightening my hair, TONI&GUY® Prep Heat Protection Mist helps me get the smooth and frizz-free look I am trying for without frying my hair. I usually spray it on my hair while it is damp and use an iron designed to dry and straighten hair at the same time to make things go a little more quickly.
If I’m in a curling mood, I’ve found that the TONI&GUY® Casual Forming Spray Gel gives the right amount of hold without making my hair stiff or sticky.
Walgreens carries the whole TONI&GUY® Casual line which gives you the freedom to create the exact look you want.
