How to make a rat’s nest.

longhaircurated from Hairstyles and Beauty Tips

Oh Pinners, you aren’t this easily fooled, are you?

Yes, you are.

This pin, which has been pinned almost 29,000 times, is captioned:

“To straighten hair without heat, just mix a cup of water with 2 tablespoons of BROWN sugar, pour it into a spray bottle, then spray into damp hair and let air dry.”

If you tried this, I’d love to see a photo of your results, particularly if you have curly/frizzy/wavy hair to begin with, because I do, and if I did this, the rats would move right in, to say nothing of the birds and the bees.

UPDATE: I was just informed by the fabulous Pintester who, in her usual generous and hilarious way, has already saved you from trying this yourself! Check it out here.

Indulge? Skip dessert? Go back for seconds? Guilt? It’s lip balm. It’s not a treat. It’s lip balm, people! I wish the ad would just talk about what a fun product it is for protecting/softening your lips, but spare us the clichéd rhetoric that we’re somehow bad for eating a freaking cupcake instead of exuberantly licking flavored wax off of our lips and going back for more. Beauty product advertising is gross. Totally.
