Hair RePear To Stop Dreaded Frizz!

https://www.hairrepear.com




What the hell have I been doing to my hair?!?

I firmly believed I was cursed with a frizzy mess for hair; hair that could only be tamed by heat and dominance.  Only to find that that’s not my hair at all and that I’ve been abusing it all these years!  I ALWAYS wrapped my hair in a towel after washing, because that’s what all the commercials and ads said to do.  Then I got grown up and I bought the fancy smancy microfiber hair turban in fancy smancy colors and thought I was alllll cool.

LIES!

Nothing but lies all these years and my hair has paid the ultimate, unfair price.

Whether your hair is curly or straight, wavy or not – a t-shirt is all it takes to prevent frizz & damage.

Yes, you heard me correctly, A T-SHIRT! 

Here’s the problem & the solution  - “Terry cloth and microfiber loops and grooves become aggressors to the hair cuticles roughing it up and removing to much moisture. This causes flyaways, breaks, and dreaded frizz!  The solution to the problem is to use a t-shirt because the smooth fabric does not frizz and break the hair.”

So freaking simple and it’s been in my wardrobe my entire life!

Yes, you could use a straight up t-shirt, but how do you wrap it and hold it in place and what about the sleeves and the pockets and the graphics, yadda yadda. 

Save yourself the hassle and invest $20 for your hair peace of mind and get yourself the Hair RePear T-Shirt Towel!  Made from the finest premium quality 100% Cotton Interlock Fabric available right here in the USA!  The Hair RePear ultimate t-shirt hair towel is designed to be large enough for wrapping, scrunching, and plopping/plunking (if you don’t know what this is, check out YouTube, it will blow your mind!).

There are two sizes - 29x45 for long hair and 19x39 for short hair.  I will say I went for the larger size and it’s a little too big – but I’d rather have too much fabric than not enough.  Also, this little wonder towel comes in two colors – white & black.  After reading many reviews, I opted for the black; as the white didn’t look so great after freshly dyed hair.

You could buy directly from Hair RePear, but you know me, Amazon is where all the cool peeps shop!

May you never suffer with frizz again…

  12. Using a Sushi mat, roll Burrito like you would Sushi
  13. Wet 1" gap lightly to seal roll
  14. Allow to sit for 14 minutes so Nori Wrapper can soften by absorbing moisture from the Rice before eating or place in fridge until ready to eat
  15. For ease in eating, wrap Burrito in tin foil

Hoff Thoughts: Any ingredients can be used, let your imagination run wild.  Makes a great on the go lunch or snack - which is why this serves so much, I'm currently eating Sushi Burritos daily at work.
