“Wax on, wax off.”

My hair is in that "week-until-my-haircut-appointment-and-driving-me-crazy" stage, so I have had to dip into our collection of rarely-used styling products in an effort to keep some semblence of control over it.

Lately, my hairdresser has been putting wax in my hair before sending me out the door with yet another "look" that I know I can never duplicate on my own.  But hey, if it means that she rubs my head a bit longer, I’m totally game for it.

So last weekend, while trolling our local over-stock discount store for cleaning products and other necessities that we hate to spend a lot of money on, I found a small container of hair wax to add to our collection. But once I got it home, I realized that while I knew the proper technique for applying it (thanks to Kyan on "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"), I had no idea how much to use.

Turns out that’s kind of key to the whole hair wax thing, because if you don’t use enough of it, you just wind up lookng like you need a shower.

Let’s just say that’s not really the look I was going for.

Feed my ego!
