My hair has always been the bane of my existence.  When I was young, it was too thick.  Later, it became a contradiction in terms.  One hair dresser actually told me she'd never seen hair as curly as mine also be so fine.

The rain has wreaked havoc on in.  Despite shampoo and conditioner and extra hold hair spray, the slightest bit of moisture in the air causes my already curly hair to seize up and form a fuzzy, felted, frizzed out mess.

I'm not going to post a picture, because that would shame me.

When it's not too humid (or rainy) outside and the stars align just right, my hair naturally forms beautiful corkscrew curls- the kind the pageant people spend hours trying to force their hair to make.

Unfortunately, that just rarely ever happens. 

How many times have I contemplated just shaving all my hair off?  Oh, twice a day usually. 




  1. My sister has similar hair and likes the Garnier Fructis styling gel/spray stuff (in a tall green, slender spray bottle). She sprays it on and scrunches it in each morning. It works pretty well for her to hold the curl without going fuzzy. :)

  2. I will have to try that! I've used styling gel in the past but it made me feel like my hair was crunchy. Of course, it's been YEARS since I've tried it, so it might be worth a revisit :D.
