Don't buy a blow dryer - Buy a Jeep!

Last week my blow dryer decided to kick the bucket.  It's such a hassle because I haven't had time to get my booty to Target to purchase a new one!  My roommate has been oh so generous in letting me borrow her blow dryer BUT I've learned that certain people can use certain dryers, while others - not so much.

Let me explain.  I have super thick hair.  Like it's thicker than a rope when braided.  Yep.  That thick.  (Hence the reason why it was so much easier to control when short.  The boyfriend wants me to grow it out though... so we're giving it a good shot again. Until it is long enough to chop and donate again!)

Long v Short.  What do you think?
So anyway - like I was saying - I have learned that I cannot use the same blow dryer as someone with thin hair.  It took me almost 20 minutes just to get the top layer of my hair dry with my roomies blow dryer!  Hopefully I will make it out today to get a new one...

Yesterday I had to be somewhere though.  And I couldn't go with sopping wet hair.  So what's the solution?  JEEPERS!  I don't know?!  Ready for a photo montage?  Because I hopped in the jeep, set up the iphone, and started driving down the highway!  

It was 82 degrees and perfect jeep weather!  Naturally, this was the only solution to a broker blow dryer.

Not really sure why I was grinning so awkwardly weird the entire time my iPhone was snapping picture... I am going to blame concentration, maybe?  Driving, hair drying, snapping pictures... maybe it is just too much for this blond.  I don't know.  But I assure you, I don't awkwardly grin all the time in real life.

And the finished, unbrushed product?!  Not too bad!  It was dry and it looked like I just went to the beach!  Who is ready for summer?  This girl.

So the bottom line?  If you don't have a working blow dryer you should rush out, right this second, and buy a Jeep Wrangler.  You will not regret this decision one bit.

For real though, this girl needs a new, high powered blow dryer.  Does anyone have any recommendations?  I can't deal with one of those wimpy ones.  I need one that produces hurricane (or jeep) winds...   Happy Saturday!


  1. Hahaha... I hear you. Right after I got married, I realized that I'd been using my roomie's hair dryer for the past several years and didn't have my own. I definitely had a Sunday morning where I hung my out the window on the interstate while my husband drove us to church. But hey, what works, works! Hope you're doing well :)

  2. This is hilarious! And awesome! Who needs a hair dryer? My hair is quite thin - so maybe it would take less time? And your hair looks great!


  3. Haha, this is so funny! I have an '89 Wrangler (my baby!) and stubborn, curly hair that has resisted any and all attempts to be straightened... except once by my Jeep. Back in college my then boyfriend (now husband), another friend, and I were driving to our respective parents' homes from university, and I sat in the back and let them hang out (if you've got a Wrangler, you know backseat-frontseat conversation when the top is off is a joke). Well, I left school with wet hair, and by the time I was alone in the driver's seat I had a perfectly dry and straight ponytail! I've never been able to recreate it, though, so I think the two-sided wind of the backseat was crucial. Love the Jeep as a styling tool!

  4. I have thick hair too! I just shower at night, let my hair air dry, and hit it with the blow dryer just before bed. Long hair is such a pain in the butt! I think you look so sassy with short hair!
