Ok, has anyone used these crazy things. They are little plastic arches that you put in your hair to create the teased pouf look. I am liking the idea but wondering if they work since most of that "as seen on tv" stuff doesn't!

I thought they looked really cool. My hubby just bought me a set, so I could get it in a couple weeks. I will do a review when I get them. Also if you want, Sally Beauty Supply now carries them. When I went to go buy them last week, they were out of the brunette ones. My hubby was trying to surprise me with a set since I couldn't find them anywhere...so sweet. He just didn't know that Sally was getting a new shipment yesterday. But oh well..can't wait to try them!
I don't know. Personally, I think they are kind of ugly - well, at least what they show on tv. I don't see why they wouldn't work though, they are probably just like the big hair clips without the handle. I heard some lady at Target talking about how she loved her bumpit though.

I haven't used them, but I always just "bump" my hair myself with a barette.
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
I saw the infomercial online today and they scare me! Its not hard to backcomb your hair to get the same, less scary, look! And if it wont hold a tease, big sexy products makes a spray called backcomb in a bottle that works on every hair type! (I myself have to use this)
I always thought using some kind of support under there would be a lot better than ratting it... Healthier, less injury to the hair. Man, if you've ever seen my own hair tangle, you'd know what I mean! Childhood was a nightmare for me until I could brush out my own hair. It practically backcombs itself into 1 big birds' nest sometimes. So I stay away from teasing it.
I'm sure that for movies, photoshoots, and other profession places where they do a lot of hair styling, lots of fake hair pieces are used, as well as foam supports to create the desired shape underneath. Clipping in pre-made rats or foam pieces is much better for myself, and it seems like the bumpit is just an adjustable version of those! probably a little expensive for what it is, of course. You could just make your own rats or foam pieces to whatever size you want and pin them in.
