1. Is your hair naturally curly, wavy, or straight? Long or short?
Naturally curly (not quite as bad as Frieda (from Peanuts fame but close) and short. It doesn’t grow down, it grows out. I always wanted long, straight Cher-like hair (and a Cher-like body (pre-plastic surgery, thank you) would work well too, thanks!)
2. How has your hair changed over your lifetime?
Oh, not so much. Doesn’t look as spiffy now that Dean’s not doing it but overall, it’s pretty much the same except for the two periods in my life when I wanted long hair and watched mine grow out (not down).
3. How do your normally wear your hair?
Short but not too butchy. No one will mistake me for a guy.
4. If you could change your hair this minute, what would it look like?
Shoulder length, curly but not frizzy … I’m trying to think of a celebrity with hair I love … Hmmm. Let me think on this.
5. Ever had a hair disaster? What happened?
Oh lord have mercy! (Christ have mercy) My mother once put crisco in my hair (WHY? WHY? WHY?) and it took DAYS to get it out. I remember her washing and washing it in the kitchen sink but for the life of me, I cannot remember what would have made her think that was a good idea in the first place. (Yeah, my mom is kinda strange …)
If you talk to hairdressers they’ve got lots of goop and treatments for curly hair, to make it go straight or point downwards. But IMHO it’s not very good for your hair. I don’t use anything on mine, just H20. Was a bit crazy for a couple of weeks, but when the natural oils (produced by hair when you’re not washing and treating it) started to kick in it stopped being so frizzy.
I like your 100 things list :)
Have you tried Frizz-Ease? And Pantene Pro-V?
And vitamins (E works great for hair, skin, and nails.)? Mine used to grow out and not down, but after a few months of training it, it now hangs nicely to my shoulders. Just a thought. Love your blog, have a great weekend.
