My hair is, as usual, in that ridiculous lion-hair stage. I stopped getting it cut shorter because I missed being able to put it up (especially with every-other-day showering) and I’m just letting it grow until it is long enough to throw into a ponytail without pieces falling out. If I get that far maybe I’ll cut bangs in to pretend I’m trendy… sort of like what I did three years ago, which is around the last time I felt like my hair looked decent.
When I was in high school, hair straighteners came out onto the market and I was psyched to have a way to combat my naturally curly/wavy/thick/CRAZY hair. I’d get up early and sear it straight, every morning. I have no idea how I managed to do that — these days I’m trying to calculate exactly how much time I can spend not getting ready in the morning while still making it to daycare drop off and work on time.
But I need a straightener in my hair tool kit, even if it isn’t something I will use every single day. I have these weird sticky-outy fluffy pieces around my face, and if I could just straighten a pony tail it’d be less of an awkward length. But the one I have is an ancient $60 Walmart deal — no dice (do people still say that?).
I received this straightener for free, in exchange for an honest review, and I was super excited about it. I’ve been debating buying one so when this offer came up I jumped on it right away. Less-liony hair? I’m down.
