The Hair Bean
Since I was pregnant and found out I was having a girl I was so excited and eagerly waited for the day she arrived. At first nervous whether or not she would have hair and desperately wished she did. You see, my entire life I have always been reminded that I was nearly bald until I was two years old and how I was constantly mistaken for a boy. I did not want this for my baby girl. Luckily she arrived with a god amount of hair so I was happier than ever. And for the first year of her little life I eagerly awaited the day I would be able to put little barrettes in her hair or give her the most adorable little pigtails.
Here we are another year later; her hair is just at shoulder length level. Its at the point where it starts getting tangles, and sometimes it stays in her ponytail, and then most of the time gets all messy, covers her eyes and falls out of her ponytail. There isn’t much I can do about it and I still haven’t decided if and when she will get her first haircut, and if I get her a haircut, and what style would I even choose for her? Since I hate bangs, I guess I will just keep letting it grow until I see a need to cut it.
Anyways, since her ponytails are always falling out, I have to brush Lexi’s hair and fix it at least two times a day. Up until recently she was ok with me doing so, until she realized she hates my hair brush. Now, when she sees me with the brush she runs away. I happened to be at my local Bed Bath and Beyond just last Friday and stumbled across The Hair Bean. An ‘As Seen On Tv’ product, which promises to painlessly de-tangle hair easily while also minimizing damage to your hair.
The only two things I care about when it comes to testing this product, it whether it is approved by Lexi, and whether it brushes and de-tangles as a regular brush would.
I have to say, it didn’t even take five minutes for the verdict to be in. This product is
approved by not only myself but Lexi as well. She no longer runs when I want to brush her hair. In fact, she actually likes the Hair Bean and is even able to use it on herself at only 2 years of age. She even loves the carrying case and the little mirror inside.
After seeing the infomercial for the Hair Bean I noticed that they had women using it. So my test would not be complete if I didn’t test it out on my own hair. For those that have seen my videos, you know my hair is quite long and I assure you it gets a lot of tangles. Well, Even on my hair, the Hair Bean worked wonderfully! It took a little longer to use than my usual brush but it worked and was completely painless.
So here we have it, yet another great product. I could not say for sure how well this product works on coarser hair or on hair of different ethnicities besides my own, but I guess its for you to decide and try for yourself.
