This week Kirsty from My Home Truths asked us to confess our bad hair days! Without dragging up the past and all the horrid hairstyles I have attempted throughout the years I thought I'd share something I tried just recently.
In this song by Sara Evans I think it is so true when she sings...
Well the straight-haired girls, they all want curls
And the brunettes wanna be blonde
It's your typical thing,
you've got yin, you want yang
It just goes on and on
This is SO me! I wish I was one of those people who could wake up in the morning and put a brush through my hair and it was good to go, wash it and it would dry naturally all soft and silky like those girls on the shampoo ads on telly....ahhhhh girl can dream.
Nope... mine is like a gigantic ball of fluff and has been likened to horse hair in the past! I was once told that I could pull out every second hair and still have a full head of hair. My hair is thanks to my father, who at 61 is confident he will never have to struggle with baldness, he still has a full head of fluff himself! lol....
So with this I am always looking for products and styles to try that might make my hair a little easier to handle. I am one of those people who doesn't handle a hair dryer well, so I usually either pull the wet hair back into a bun or wait for it to dry....(hours later....) and then straighten it, which can take up to 45 minutes..
Anyway over the weekend I caught up with my friend Marliesa from This is Who I am and we discussed a post that Katrina from the Block had on her blog about 'The heatless headband curls' so last night I thought I would give it a go....with somewhat success.
I didn't think to take a before photo but I had washed my hair and then waited for it to dry before I attempted the wrapping of the hair around the band. It was still a little damp but thought that should be ok. I took this one just before bed....

Am not sure how it would go if I straightened it first and then attempted the curling but that may have to be a task for another night....
OK, fess up..... What bad hair decisions have you made....?
