I am not one of those people that gets embarrassed if someone catches me and my ‘do right after waking up–the problem arises when I am spotted with freshly washed and dried hair. Yikes. It was weeks after we were married before I let Chris see the beast (my hair) untamed. And now that I feel like we know each other a little better, here she is:

What a mess. My hair is naturally curly, which is nice–don’t get me wrong. Except DO get me wrong after one day. Day 2 is a complete frizz-fest, which means I have to wash it again, which I don’t like to do. I am a 2-3 washes/week kinda girl. Is there a mom that isn’t–I’d love to meet you wonder woman.
Honestly, what did people do before straighteners? Well, actually I was one of those people until I was a senior (maybe a junior) in high school, I think. I remember putting a lot of serum in my hair after drying it and trying to flatten it down. It then looked like greasy frizz–which is WAY worse than regular, plain frizz. And then sometimes my mom would use a really large curling iron, which got some of the kinks out–but looking back, it was definitely still a mess, even though I felt like it looked awesome. Eventually, my sister, Victoria, showed me how to put mousse in my hair and I discovered my hair was not naturally frizzy, but curly. That saved me, seriously. I still can’t get my hair to look the same every day (as mentioned here), but I cling to my Chi and most days, I make it through just fine.
|I love you CHI|
I doubt I am the only one with a hairy secret. Anyone else hiding behind a straightener or favorite product? Don’t make me do this alone, people.
