HairZing Giveaway!

HairZing is an elasticized double comb hair accessory. I got one at BlogHer and after a slight learning curve about how to put the combs in (which would have been less if I actually read the instructions that came with the thing or watched the online videos first) I wore almost every day for two months straight because it made getting up and out the door with cute hair quick and easy. I think I tried all 14 hairstyles the first week I got it.

The metal combs hold the HairZing securely in my thick hair (although I wouldn’t go jogging in it.) I really like that their HairZing has metal combs because my hair is so thick I often break plastic combs. The little beaded net on the back contains all the stray hairs that normally need corralling when I put my hair up without the any of the extra pins, clips, sprays, gel, etc. I normally have to use. I wish I had this when I grew out my short hair! The HairZing works in all hair types - long, short, thick, thin, curly, and straight.


HairZing is an ethically made product in Kenya and China. In both countries women form their own beading collectives, are able to earn fair wages, and control their working conditions where jobs near their homes aren’t plentiful. This makes me like my new little hair doodad even more.
