Bedhead Foxy Curls Review


With the summer just around the corner (or forever if Texas), I thought I should try to curl my hair as straightening it is not an option. 

I’ve had luck using bedhead products before but the damn frizz is what turns luscious curls into a mess of ringlets that stick flat to your head. 

Please note: My hair is naturally curly and fine, unmanageable with curls on the left side, and semi straight hair on the right side. Frizz everywhere and flat spots with curly random bits all over the place. 

I had previously looked into bedhead products that define curls but get rid of the nasty frizz and so I decided to give bedhead foxy curls a try as it is supposed to get rid of frizz while acting as a contouring cream to define curls? 

You apply the product after your hair is toweled dry. Simple enough, except.. I’m clumsy and couldn’t get the thing properly opened so I just went the old fashioned way and unscrewed the whole cap, applied a generous amount and started squeezing and massaging my wet hair. 

The result: Almost no frizz, and the curls were defined but it wasn’t a WOW effect. Just for the sake of trying, I combined it with the diffuser. Typically, this makes my hair curly but flat? Not this time. The WOW effect came back full force after using the diffuser for 1-2 minutes? Maybe less. Not only were the curls defined but they were voluminous and there was almost no significant frizz. Please note: I used the diffuser when my hair was now dried so any frizz seen might have been caused from that.

Result: 


I know the picture doesn’t do it justice but there’s volume on either side and barely any frizz.

My score for this product: 4.5/5

If you have any feedback on how to better make use of this product, please let me know. Thanks!

Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai – A Gathering of 100 Weird Tales 

Hyakumonogatari Kaidankai also known as the gathering of 100 weird tales. It was a Japanese game played during the Edo period, late at night in which a group of people would gather to tell bizarre but often frightening tales. 100 candles were lit at the start of the game. When an individual was done narrating their kaidan or weird tale, they would reach over and extinguish one of the candles. Each time a tale was told, a candle would be put out until there was only 1 left. By the time only 1 candle remained, the room would be submerged in enough darkness to guarantee paranoia and tension. When the last candle was doused, something terrifying was supposed to happen or one of the guests was rumored to be revealed as a ghost or other supernatural entity
There is no known concrete reason for the existence of such a game but there are 2 underlying theories. 

#1: There are some that claim the origin is from a Buddhist ritual called 100 Buddhist Stories or Hyakuza Hodan. The ritual consisted in 100 Buddhist stories told over a period of 100 days and a miraculous thing was believed to happen afterwards. 

#2: The second theory of the game of the gathering of 100 weird tales was supposed to have originated as a form of courage test played amongst the samurai. Along the lines of ‘ the last man standing’ because when the last candle was extinguished, only a few would be brave enough to see what awaited in the dark. ( This version of the game can be encountered in Ogita Ansei‘s Kaidanshū Tonoigusa.

Brilliant Star

When you start doing great, support will diminish and exagerated, negative feedback will follow. That’s your cue to know you are on the right path. A brilliant idea shines so bright it makes others upset, angry, and envious and rarely do others mean to ‘genuinely’ advise you.

Shades of Colors

Your days are only as beautiful as you make them. If you want to be gray, you’ll only see hues of gray. If you want to be a dull green, you will become a dull green and be perceived in return as such. The day is as good as you make it, and bad things can certainly happen as it is the way of life, but by focusing only on shades of gray and black, you fail to see the VIBRANT  colors surrounding you.

Your Information is out there and You can’t do a Single Thing to Stop it.

Today I found a website that not only lists my company inaccurately, but it details private information about each individual owner (me included) as to where they live and their personal phone number. I understand my company will inevitably get listed with its address and phone number ..but why do I have to suffer the exposure as a separate individual from my business entity? 

Thousands of searches reveal that the website in question  while it violates privacy and many thousands of complains..has yet to close. Now I feel completely uneasy and discouraged. If there are court cases, complaints filed against an unscrupulous website that seems to be scraping information from public records  and it still doesn’t disappear from the map.. What can we expect from the rest of the Internet?

Opting out can be requested and it has but it is apparently not honored and the information reappears magically. 

This is both exhaustive and frustrating, and I feel powerless dealing with a masked business entity that could be located who knows where. 

Burden 

There are times in life when we find ourselves becoming a burden for others. There’s nothing wrong with not knowing what path to take in life, the problem is when you drag others with you.

Seldom will a good friend or relative will tell you their honest feelings, but you can perceive the way things feel off, almost as if you are a guest that has overstayed their welcome. The circumstances change, however, when you have a physical inability to change what you are going through. The emotional burden is there however, knowing you depend on someone else. …

At times you start feeling like a furniture or part of something that could have been, was, but got stuck somewhere in between. There are those that are fortunate enough not to realize they are being a burden, and there are those that fail to forget every second, hour, month, and year.

That nagging sensation that screams you are a burden. 

You are young. You’ve got time.

That’s what older people see. When the clock is ticking so close to home, and still nothing has changed, desperation and frustration sets in. It’s difficult to remain positive in shades of black and gray. 

Today’s Saying

We allow others to fill us with negativity instead of focusing on remaining positive ourselves. The rule is, I suppose, : Don’t let negativity ruin your day and certainly do not imitate it to spite the other person.
