  • - So step, oh (bleep).

  • - Ow!

  • - Oh God! (groans)

  • - I feel like it would just be faster

  • to wear a hat.

  • - [Voiceover] As seen on TV hair products?

  • - It's hair products that are bought at 11 at night

  • when you're bored and sad.

  • - I honestly don't think any of this stuff

  • will work on my hair.

  • - We both have a lot of hair.

  • - There aren't a lot of women with natural hair

  • in the commercials, but I could be surprised.

  • - You're giving them a lot of credit.

  • - You know, I'm trying to be fair here.

  • - This is when I turned off the TV

  • 'cause it was being like, "Are you lacking volume?"

  • - [Together] Nope.

  • - I don't need a Bump It, it bumps itself.

  • - Part hair across the crown of the head.

  • I'm already lost.

  • - Like this?

  • - Yeah.

  • - Okay, here.

  • Did you just drop yours? - Yeah.

  • - Tease from scalp to about three inches high.

  • Wow. - Wait, what?

  • (groaning) - Oh God!

  • - No.

  • - Place Bump It, insert firmly on scalp.

  • - It's in, you've bumped!

  • - I think I did it.

  • - Fan out hair over Bump It,

  • fluff, and even.

  • So basically, the step is, make sure no one can see

  • your damn Bump It.

  • - Oh.

  • - Oh my gosh!

  • - Oh my God.

  • It does not look bad.

  • - I look like a Conehead.

  • - I'm mad.

  • (snapping)

  • - It is hard to do it right, but when you do it's worth it.

  • - [Voiceover] Hairagami?

  • (shouting in surprise)

  • - Oh my God.

  • - Don't do that!

  • - This is actually really clever

  • because I feel like these instructions

  • would immediately get dropped in the toilet.

  • - This is not gonna hold hair.

  • - You just broke yours. - No I didn't, oh I did.

  • - Sandwich hair at the nape of the neck

  • - Sandwich me.

  • - Okay, it's sandwiched.

  • - Wait, wait, wait. - Maybe yours just isn't broken.

  • - No, oh... - Okay.

  • - You know who could probably do this really well,

  • is Shontelle.

  • - Bend the other end up and over the--

  • - [Together] What?

  • - Arrange hair across Hairagami,

  • then pull down.

  • - Oh (bleep).

  • - Oh my God. - Did I do it?

  • - Which style are you going for? - I don't know.

  • (snapping)

  • - Who even thought of this?

  • Who was like, "Oh, I love those snap bracelets,

  • "let's put 'em in my hair."

  • - Was it a man?

  • - Glam Twirl.

  • Create one hundred dazzling hairstyles.

  • - You can wrap it?

  • - Oh my God, there are so many instructions!

  • - I don't even know where to begin.

  • - You're supposed to thread it through the hole.

  • You run it through the hole.

  • You gotta put it in the hole.

  • - I'm so scared. - Yeah, I'm scared, too.

  • - That's a terrible sound.

  • - Should I go up? - (laughing) I don't know.

  • - Maybe we are supposed to keep it,

  • this is so hard (laughing).

  • - I pushed down, I-- (both gasping)

  • - Oh (bleep).

  • - Oh my God.

  • - It's beautiful.

  • - It got caught, it got caught.

  • - I cannot believe that this works.

  • - Yep, not for black people.

  • (snapping)

  • - My hair is worse.

  • - We are adult women, and I still felt

  • like I was in danger about half the time.

  • - Raise your hand if you've been personally victimized

  • by the Bump It.

  • - I like the idea of products that make it easier

  • to do your hair.

  • I just think those were not the products.

  • - Most of them were two person jobs. - Yeah.

  • - You definitely need a friend.

  • - I ripped out so much of my hair.

  • - Really, what we're saying is that

  • these "As seen on TV" products

  • are worthwhile because they can show you

  • who your real friends are.

  • - Real friends don't let your hair get caught

  • in wrap mechanisms.

  • - Ladylike not approved.

  • - Yeah, I mean to be fair,

  • that one strand is really curled.

  • - 78 strands to go.

- So step, oh (bleep).
