When I was a teenager, I spent a lot of time on my hair. My hair is naturally wavy, curly, and frizzy but it’s not super kinky. It always felt like it didn’t know what it wanted to do. So I straightened it, Every Day. My dad wouldn’t get me any flat irons so I used a blow dryer and my curling iron. I would get up super early in the morning so that I had enough time to make my hair “presentable” by my standards. If I didn’t have enough time, it would go in braids or a pony tail. It took forever to do my hair because it was long. “We want what we don’t have” and I didn’t have straight, shiny, silky hair like my sister. When I was out on my own and had the money, I bought a flat iron. Needless to say, I was not kind to my hair.
It wasn’t until I became a mother and found AndreasChoice on YouTube, that I came to accept my hair as it is. Having two boys doesn’t give me a lot of time to do much of anything. Now I only straighten my hair once in a while, usually for a special night out. On a daily basis, I leave it to do it’s crazy natural thing. I’ve tried a lot of products to help tame the frizz and help define the curls, and the best by far has been BubbleBabez’s Whipped Body Mouse. It makes my curls look great and helps it from becoming a frizz ball. The best part is that my hair smells Amazing all day long!
I’ve learned to love my hair. I take much better care of it now. I focus on keeping it healthy. When I style it, I make sure to use Heat Protectant. My faves are from CHI and Tresseme. I laugh at how I use to be but we do Lots of silly things when we’re young.
