Hairy Scary

It's a common fact that we women are never happy with what we have. Hair-wise. Women with stick straight hair are envious of those with curls. Woman with naturally curly hair just wish their hair would lay (lie?) flat. And those who have waves yearn for either curls or straightness.

Am I right?

Anyway, I'm channeling my inner poodle these days. Last Thursday I was really hung over tired (and you can quote me on this: It will be a LONG time before my Mom and I drink reisling together again, especially on a school night) so I skipped the part of my morning routine wherein I do battle with the hair on my head (that was sort of redundant. What other hair would I be styling? My pubes?) and spend 20 minutes blowdrying and then another 10 with the flat iron.

Me: Straighten, you bitch!

My Hair: Screw you! Just embrace the frizz.

Me: Who are you, Dr. Phil? Now c'mere and let me dry and damage you further with this searing hot flat iron.

So I boycotted. And guess what? I got LOTS of compliments on my untamed curls! That was all my ego needed to hear.

Now, after I get out of the shower, I just run some anti-frizz cream through my hair and I'm good to go.

And while I sort of feel like I'm perhaps not as polished-looking as I'd like to be, at this point in my life? WHO CARES!

I'm happy to say my hair and I have reached a truce has won.

I just can't embrace my frizz. I will continue the fight in your honor.

I want to slap you naturally curly haired gals who STRAIGHTEN. Are you nuts??? I would kill for naturally curly hair. I have paid lots and lots and lots of money for curls and I am, in fact, contemplating doing so again, because I am fed up with screwing around with my hair. When I had a perm, I could just scrunch and go.

Ha! You said pubes.

Yay! She is back... Who has time for primping? Never trust a mom that looks totally perfect all the time! :o)

Well, I just love a girl who says "pubes"!
Also, the "use your words" here just cracks me up.

Your friend in poodle hair,

Frizzy Chicks - UNITE! I will try to...until the next time when my flattening iron winks at me.

Funny blog!
