Gettin' All Dolled-Up with a Product Review: Got2Be Volumizing Powder

Oh boy have a got a fun and fabulous product to tell you gals about.  If you like big hair, THIS is the product for YOU. 

Here's the scoop...In this past weeks Smart Source Coupon insert there was a coupon for Got2Be Hair Styling Products.  Now this line has been on the shelves at Walgreen's, CVS, etc for quiet some time but I never gave it much thought.  It is rather pricey for a drugstore hair product being close to $7.00, normal price.  If this was a line of specialty or salon products there would be no problem with the price or even double / triple that is just how the brain THINKS of such things.  With the coupon, a 3.00 off 1 product the price is a little more of a "I want to try this stuff" price....but gets much better.  Walgreen's has a month long sale of BOGO (buy one get one) FREE...AND you can use a coupon on both the "buy one" and the "get one free"....can ya add that up ladies?  That would make BOTH FREE!!!! and I know we all love FREE!!!!

I bought several of the different varieties as I have quiet a few coupons.  I am planning on trying all of these and posting a short review on each...but today I will start with my FAVORITE (so far).

Here is my before shot (please be kind...LOL)

Pretty flat, huh?
Ok, here is what I did.  I took the little shaker of powder and started sprinkling lightly at the roots.  I started out very easy because I had no idea what the end result would be.  After sprinkling, what I considered "enough" (YMMV) I fluffed my hair and here is the result...
MUCH more volume but rather "fly away" or "I just rolled outta bed from doing something FUN" (a look the Hubbie rather likes but not good to be out and about with).  So I proceeded with my "fixin my hair routine" and came out l this....

It was actually MUCH higher at the crown but the Hubbie said that I looked like Snookie from the Jersey Shore so I tamed it down.  When I woke up the next morning it STILL looked good so I just skipped washing it and went on with my day.  I think the powder absorbs some of the oils.

Since I had quiet a few coupons I went out and bought more of this powder to have in my beauty supple stockpile.  This will definitely be a staple in my routine.

Happy Homemaking,

Housewife on a Diet AND Couponing for Two: More healthy coupons

As I have said a few times, it IS possible to stock a healthy pantry / kitchen with coupons.  It is not easy but it IS possible.  Here are a few to help you keep your new years resolutions...  Remember, it is only about 3 months (in Texas) from swim suit time.  I WILL be ready...will YOU?

The following are HCG friendly (YMMV, of course) for the different phases of the protocol.  If you are looking for other diet friendly products, check out your chosen brand's facebook or website.  Also, Collin over on Hip2Save is always posting great coupon links.

Peanut Butter and Co. $1.00/1 Peanut Butter is a YMMV on P3
Red Gold Tomatoes (14.5 oz. or larger) $1.25/1  these are great for the P2 Chili
Frank’s RedHot Product .35/1  (use zip 10001) Keep things from getting boring
$0.55 off any So Delicious Dairy Free Product (“like” on Facebook)  This is the company that makes the wonderful Coconut Milk Creamer that a few of us are using.
Nature Made Vitamins up to 10.00 off (plus a great way to remember your vitamins.

Remember to hit your "back" button to print most of these 2 times.  if you have more than one computer, even better!!!!
