Hair, Hair, HAIR!!

Hair has always been something fun for me.  I desperately wanted a perm as a child of the 80s, crimped the heck out of it in the 90s, and began chopping it off in high school.  For years I had long dark hair...which is beautiful, but bored me.  Now, I sport a short rocker pixie.  I have the sides and back shaved with clippers.  The top is funky and piecey.  To say I love my hair is an understatement.  However, that being said, it's still just hair to me.  It doesn't define me.  I see it as one more way to express my style.  Short hair can be easy, as long as you have the right product.  I'm a product junkie. I've tried so many things out there, some are awesome, some I took right back to Ulta.  (did you know you can take stuff back there if you don't like it??)

I recently came across not only a product I adore, but an entire brand that I think ROCKS!  Best part?  It's at Ulta, CVS, Walgreens, Target...everywhere...which means the price is right ($6)!  Trust me when I say, I've truly tried it all...TIGI, Pureology, Got2Be, Redken, the whole gamut.  What product?  *drumroll*  "Not Your Mother's"  not to be confused with the older women's jean line.  This line of products is awesome.  I currently use the Beach Babe line that's sea salt infused and give that great texture like you want from a sea salt spray.  I use the spray, hair cream, shampoo, and conditioner.  I need grip to my hair to make it do anything.  After discovering how awesome that stuff was, I saw a BOGO offer at Ulta and decided to try the She's a Tease volumizing hairspray and the Short Order cream.  Both are great for my short hair!  The last product in my NYM arsenal is the Double Take dry finish texture spray.  It's very similar to a spray wax, without the build-up. 

Can you tell I really really love this stuff?  Do you use NYM, what products?  

fyi, I'm not being paid or sponsored by Ulta or NYM...though that would be pretty cool. ;)
