I said I would go into more detail, and I try not to lie unless my soul is up on Ebay or something. Ahem...
I was a lucky recipient of the Beauty Bloggers VoxBox from Influenster, and the first thing that brought out the long buried cheerleader in me was when I spotted the long requested but never granted wish of the Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin.
I have had long hair for about twenty years. Okay, now that I've gotten over the fact that I'm that old, I'll get to the point. My hair is not only very long (waist length) but very fine. In addition, my eight month old daughter and three year old son seem to ignore the fact that it's attached to my scalp and use it to help them create a Mommy rock climbing wall. I had seen the Spin Pin advertised, and saw it as an answer to my prayers.
Anyone with long, fine hair knows that it won't stay restrained in anything, no matter how tight you wind it. I have made threats to shave my head, but for numerous reasons, did not follow through.
To give the Spin Pin a realistic test, I did what I would normally do: Grab my hair, wind it in a knot, and fasten it in place. It took a couple of tries to get the hang of putting the pins in, but I got it down.
That bun was SECURE. I did the Willow Smith thing and whipped my hair, but it stayed snug.
I have been using these every day since. The little ones are still playing Tarzan on my hair, but they now have to work for it. I must get more Spin Pins, because it would be a sad day for me if these get lost.
