    Everything counts!

    As far as I know of any other hair accessories, well cute ones, you can always try Etsy. I like handcrafted things concerning hair toys and whatnot, and typically you can find very affordable ones.

    Please come back with pics when you do! I'm still staring down the first one I posted. I might end up ordering one just to look at. I'm crazy about the flowers in resin trend, and these look superbly done. The ocean floor one is wonderful too.

    I love that blue wooden comb too.

    Playing around with a broken tire guage. No judgement necessary, this is what happens when you work from home.

    I think resin work is wonderful. I saw one that had like legit insects in it. Like ladybugs, grasshoppers, butterflies, etc. The thing with Etsy is like, as soon as you see it you better buy it right then. Stuff goes quick lol

    Right on time, she's having a sale!! I bought my favorite. I had to use some self control because it was a 20% off, and a lot of pretty things. After this I'll wait until the next one. I have plenty of time cuz I won't be able to wear it yet. :lol:

    And the latter part always scares me because my favorite conditioner bars are from Etsy. One time the shop I bought them from went down for 3 days and I was like welp that's the end of my hair care journey LOL. Now I buy a steady supply to make sure I have plenty.... like a hoarder.

    So I had the old flexi8 website saved as a favorite, but it took me to Lilla Rose. Shows that I've been in this hair game for a minute!

    There are so many new flexi8 styles now! I'll post a pic when I decide which ones to order .

    Hair stick I wore yesterday on a twisted bun.

    It's crystal acrylic with gold stars and glitter throughout it.

    My hair in its curly state eats this stick up though.

    I'll be roller setting soon though and will retry on smoother hair.

    Geez, I really need to get some pictures in here. But I did want to update this thread for a rave. And that's for actually something really simple, a ponytail holder. I got one as a free gift when I ordered a barrette (more on that in a sec). The ponytail holder are the L. Erickson Grab & Go Ponytail Holders. They're available at a lot of places, but here is where I just ordered some after receiving that single one as a gift.:
    https://www.franceluxe.com/L-Ericks...-of-Eight--As-Seen-On-Rank-Style_p_23350.html

    So stretchy and comfortable, thick and I can see not prone to roll as much which makes my hairs wrap around other ponytail holders. Probably there will be some of that, but it causes that less.

    Also what I ordered was a France Luxe barrette. This one, in fact, in rose gold:
    https://www.franceluxe.com/L-Erickson-Textured-Metal-Volume-Barrette_p_29359.html

    I had a couple years ago when there was a major sale. These are the only barrettes of this kind I've found that can hold all my hair. Even shrunken twists. You need the "volume" versions, not the regular versions. When I got this ponytail holder, it was heavy and solid. You can really tell the difference in quality between this and what you can pick up in a store. I'll update in a sec with a picture of it in my hair.

    These are next on my list. There were a couple other things I needed before, but these are so beautiful (this shop as well as what seems to be a related shop called "opiumnature"), I'll be getting one whether I need another hair fork or not.

    Hair Accessories I'm into as of late:
    Headwraps/Turbans.

    I do not wear them everyday. I usually will rock them if I am conditioning and need to leave the house OR if it is nearing wash day and my hair is not as sleek as I would like. Today is the latter. LOL

    Here is today's Wrap:

    The one from my avatar has been my warm weather favorite as the material/scarf I used is very light weight and airy.

    I wasn't that vocal about it...I might have mentioned it in passing I think on the hair side. I go a bit deeper on the 'whys" in other parts of the forum.....either the Self Care thread or the It Girl thread.

    I cut it in July.

    I’ve been using the biggest size of the plain Goody clips suggested by Kimmaytube. They’re nice but too small. Same for banana clips. Any suggestions for replacements? My hair is shoulder-length & pretty thick. I have yet to meet a banana clip my hair can’t break.

    Oh! I forgot about them!! I don’t think they’re the official puffcuff, though, but they work the same. I have two in the big size & 2 mid-size! I’ll try that today!!
