Why is it we always want what we can’t have? I remember growing up always wanting curly hair, I swear if I was a teenager in the 80’s I would have totally gotten a perm. Even now, I still wish I had curly hair and thanks to the MiraCurl (review found here) I’m able to have a faux curls for the day. I did however use a lot of Dippity-Do growing up, being a child of the 90’s I rocked a backwards bang in grade 6 and 7 and after spending 30 minutes curling my bangs both upwards, downwards and sideways I wanted to make sure it would last. Dippity-Do was the perfect inexpensive gel that would keep my bangs straight up in the air all day long.
