My crazy, frizzy, wacky hair

Thursday, April 14, 2016

I get a lot of compliments on my hair, which I appreciate but have to laugh about. My hair and I have been at odds with each other for as long as I can remember.

I always wanted straight silky hair, but instead I got stuck with crazy locks (thank you Dad).  

Me in the 90's. Even getting my hair to do this pouffy style took a long time!
When I was in high school, my hair made me cry. I would leave the house in the morning with a perfect style, but once I hit the morning dew it was all over. By the time I got to school, I looked like I had stuck my finger in an electric socket (seriously).  To a teenager, this was the end of the world.

Fast forward a bunch of years and my hair is still my worst enemy. It's frizzy, super curly and has a mind of its own. I can't live without a powerful blowdryer and flat iron. If the electricity goes out, I'm doomed.  Every day is a fight--it's me against my  hair and my  hair always wins.

Until... "da da da da!!"enter the Brazilian Blowout! I started getting treatments several years ago and the process has literally changed my life! It's transformed my unruly frizzy curls to a silkier, straighter and softer version. The treatment has cut down my styling time significantly--from an hour to a mere 15 minutes, and I no longer fear humidity or getting caught in the rain. Life is good!

This treatment is not for won't make your hair stick straight, but it will take the hassle out of styling. It isn't cheap (most salons charge a few hundred dollars) and for the best results it needs to be repeated every 12 or so weeks (I can sometimes go a bit longer). But for me it's a life saver and worth every cent. 

I'm scheduled to get a Brazilian Blowout tomorrow at Robert Jason Salon (thank goodness). This is what my hair looks when I'm super overdue for a treatment....scary I know!

After a blow-dry but before flat-ironing. Yep I need a color too!

Much better!
If you too struggle with your hair but you're not ready to pull the plug on the Brazilian Blowout, I can recommend some fabulous products that really do what they promise.  Click on the photos below for shopping details. 

So "hairs" to great hair (ok that was a cheesy line!).
