I Want *FAT-TASTIC* Hair

Hey everyone! So... you all know I don't necessarily like EVERY beauty product I try. But it's not usually hard to get me to try them! For example- look at the picture above. This is from the ad for the Got2b Fat-tastic hair products. When I saw this ad in a magazine not too long ago, I thought- I MUST have that hair. I'm not going to make any bones about it, I like big, voluminous hair! And with the weather turning colder and the humidity becoming less of a factor, I believe it's actually attainable with some decent products! And could a girl holding an adorable mini cupcake really steer you wrong?!?

Needless to say, over the past few weeks I've purchased ALL of the fat-tastic products (available in drugstores for $6 or so)... the mousse, non-aerosol hairspray, and root-boosting spray. All of these products claim to give your hair in "instant collagen infusion". And according to the website, they'll give you "scrumptious body". I have not tasted the product to be able to confirm or deny that claim. :) This is not really a full review, but more of a status update on how I'm liking these products....
  • The non-aerosol hairspray was featured in my most recent Shopping List Ideas video. It's not so much a strong-hold hairspray, as something I just spritz on before styling to add some texture and lift. For that purpose, I'm still loving it!
  • And the mousse... I've been putting a small amount (I've learned it only takes a little) in mostly dry hair (you could do it on wet hair too), and then blow drying upside down. I really do notice INSTANT body, and it makes my fine, often static-prone hair much easier to work with as I use a curling iron or other styling tools. And maybe it's just the lack of humidity in the air... but my hair has been holding a curl and staying "fat" -- with less teasing than usual!
  • As for the root-boosting spray... I really haven't tried this enough to tell you anything for sure. It's very likely this is a product that you could use in place of the mousse (or vice versa)... the spray would be more lightweight, so if you felt the mousse was too much product- this may work. But, like I said, I need to try it more. Probably tomorrow!
I will keep you posted on my quest for "Fat-tastic" hair!
For now, a new blog feature that you'll find quite random.... my Daily Nuggets!


Daily Nuggets...
  • I've posted a blog, a video, and went grocery shopping today. And went to work. Feeling productive!
  • I'm sure this phase will pass eventually, but I'm kind of obsessed with buying Cupcake the tastiest-sounding Fancy Feast cat food possible. Today she ate "White meat chicken and cheddar cheese souffle with garden greens." Sounds better than anything I've had lately!
  • Been feeling extra grateful for Tyler. He's been super supportive of my online beauty endeavors & jokes that he'll one day be my "manager" LOL
  • Healthy Choice Chicken & Rice soup is one of the few really healthy soups that is actually delicious.
  • I think fall is becoming my favorite season.
  • With an array of different shampoos at my fingertips, I've been reaching for Tyler's giant bottle of Green Apple Suave, of all things. It smells good!! Do I need to justify this further?
  • It's always hard to leave a warm bed with Tyler & Cupcake in it at 1:30 freakin' AM... but this week it's been tougher than usual. Not sure why.
  • I have a major urge to go shopping this weekend.

Have a great day & thanks for stopping by!!

  3. Cupcake is adorable, she deserves the fanciest meals! :)

    I'd like to try some of these products, but my hair is so flat and limp I doubt they would help me. I've learned that my hair just isn't capable of having volume.

  7. I absolutely do not mean this in a snarky/rude manner, but Fancy Feast is a terrible, low grade food to feed to cats. Ask your vet, he or she will probably confirm this....or at least I would hope so. I'm a bit of a "pet food snob", plus I work in an animal hospital.

    If you have a Costco membership, their Kirkland brand is a decent food and extremely affordable. Wellness, California Natural, and Felidae are very high grade foods, but a little expensive.

    Anyway, love your channel! Just thought I'd chime in regarding the pet food. =)

  9. *just a note, when I said "I agree.." I meant with your comment about the got2b ad, not the comment above mine!*

  12. Ooooh, now if my hair ended up looking like the girls in the ad I'd be a very happy bunny! I will definitely give this range a try because my hair has been particularly flat and lifeless recently :)

    1.30am!? No wonder you have trouble getting up! It must be so cold and miserable out. I wouldn't know cos I cant even remember the last time I was out after mindnight. Oh I'm so old!!

  15. My fiancé uses that Suave green apple shampoo, too. He likes that it smells like fruit and costs a dollar. (Although I notice he's more than happy to sample the many, many Philosophy three-in-ones that live in our shower, too!)

  16. I love the Fat-Tastic mousse! It is the ONLY mousse that gives major fullness and body to my long fine hair. The body lasts until the next wash, too. Be careful with this mousse---it works so well, you can actually have too much body. ...as if this is even possible....
