I have a friend named Kate. And recently I discovered that she is part genius. Actually, she might be full genius, but I'm still getting to know her so that is yet to be determined.
Anyway, I made this discovery after she offered me a brilliant suggestion. You see, my daughter's hair is very much like her mommy's hair (bless our stringy-haired hearts): half-wavy-half-straight-sometimes-curly-always-thin. My hair rocked in the 80s; it permed beautifully. But the post-perm era hasn't been kind. And my precious daughter is in for a sorry treat.
So in an effort to keep my hair tamed (especially when I'm too lazy to style it, which is everyday), I ponytail my hair. And now that Miss Harper's hair is getting longer, I've begun to do the same with hers. But the itty bitty hair ties that I use to pull up her hair are jumpy and feisty making them very hard to contain.
And that's where part-genius Kate comes in. She suggested that I use a binder ring to store them, keeping them contained, accessible, and easy to store.
So when I recently decided to organize the bathroom closet (this is only 1/20th of the mess I tackled), I started with the hair ties and binder rings.
It's a stringy-hair miracle!
What about you? Are you part-genius? Do you have any miraculous hair suggestions for my daughter and me?
