Y’all know how I love to yak about cool stuff I’ve found. Back in May I shared some of my all-time favorites. I’m fairly sure I blogged about some other stuff, but damned if I can find it now. Maybe that was just a dream blog. With me, you never know.
Regardless, I’m calling this Cool Stuff Report #3 instead of #2 because…well, it just sounds better.
So, what have my random travels uncovered for you fine people this month? I’m not sure if the first one will surprise you or not. It sure blew mine.
A hair dryer.
Yes. A hair dryer.
All my life, I’d thought they were just…well…hot air. The air heats up, the hair dries, you’re done. Right?
As I’m wont to do each morning, I was setting at my desk last week, sipping my coffee and waiting for my eyesight to de-fuzz while I scrolled through the top Yahoo articles. I clicked on some random story about best hair dryers for the money. (Cause I love a good deal.) I’ve decided it was fate because, holy schmoly, there’s some freakin’ technology to this stuff!
You see, I have uber fine hair. Now that I’m growing it out from the super short do I’ve sported for the last few years, I keep finding the ends a little frizzy. When I read this article and it told me the Revlon Laser Brilliance 1875W Infrared Heat Dryer could fix all that, I was like, “Hu-uh. Really?”
Yeah. Really. I’ve used it two mornings in a row and I’ve got no frizz. And it really did dry my hair faster. Am I the only one who knew there were different types/scales of hair dryers? Guess I’ll have to toss the Wal-Mart special I’ve been using for the last ten years. (And yes, it really has lasted that long.)
My other groovy find just makes for fun conversation. And I do mean, grrrroooovy conversation.
It’s shifting shellac nail polish color.
I know right? How cool is that? When it’s cold, the color goes dark, and when it’s hot, they turn light. Unlike the picture, I went with a black/gray combo for my first time out, but I’m thinking next time I might be more bold.
I did some Googling and it seems there’s such a thing as mood polish instead of just temperature polish. Might have to track that down too. I have a feeling hubby would appreciate the non-verbal heads up.
So, that’s this month’s Cool Report. What about you? Have any delicious finds to share? Gotta do my part in keeping our fine economy running, so spill and send me shopping. Make sure it’s a good deal though. You know how I love my “deals”.

fun! I’ve not been out and about since I had my kiddos. ha! But the color-changing nails that’s pretty cool!
I used to work in salon and so I knew a little bit about some of the varying different hair dryers. I always wondered if they made a difference. 🙂

They do! It freaked me out! Who’d have thunk it?

I obviously need to go shopping with you…I go to Walmart and find nothing cool, all the while that stupid Walmart song is running nonstop through my head. And the resident Walmartians don’t help. It’s scary how accurate that video is.

Damn, damn, damn. Now I’m singing it too. Love the “Walmartians.” That one’s gonna stick.

Oh, that nail polish is too cool. I’ll look for that next time I’m on the mainland. But…hair dryers…nope, not for this gal. If I use one I end up looking like Mufasa. Muuu–FAS–aaa!

I’m intrigued by the hair dryer. Good price and no frizz – I just may order one to add to my collection (seven so far)
