Alright girls, I am putting myself out there and cringing as I do it…
This is how you always see my hair.
What you don't know, there is a MAJOR process that goes in having normal looking hair, and it sucks bad. I have very thick, frizzy and curly hair. Not pretty curly, unruly curly.
Here is my hair routine in short-
-I only wash it 2-3 times a week tops
-Leave in towel for about an hour, then wear in clip for at least an hour or more before I even attempt to blow dry it.
-Spend forever blow drying it while trying to brush straight.
-Sleep on it, a must.
-Flat iron it in the morning. Even if I want to curl it with a curling iron, it has to be flat ironed first.
-Usually wear in a pony tail because I go through all of the work then it just grows like a chia pet with wind or humidity.
My hair is pretty and shiny, after I do a crap ton of work to it.
When I talk to people about my hair, I paint a mental picture for them. They never believe me. Unless you see it with your own eyes, you'd think I was exaggerating or lying. I tell them my hair is like Gene Simmons or the infamous Monica hair on vaca after humidity from Friends.
Like I said, they usually don't believe me. So, last week I snapped a pic to show my friend Jen. So she could see, I'm really not exaggerating. Then, for some insane reason I decided I should blog about it and ask for help.
Here we go, my hair after a blow dry, in all it's fluffiness…. (I don't feel the picture even truly captures it!)
I can't believe I just did that! I have tried everything under the sun, and spent a ridiculous amount of money on product. The ONLY thing that has ever helped me is a Brazilian Blowout, my hair was completely different afterward in a fabulous way. But, they cost $300+ and that is hard to continually spend on your hair! Certain products do help with detangling and making it soft or shiny, but nothing helps with relaxing it or making it stay/hold after I've worked on it. I'm so sick of all the work and fighting it.
