Does any woman LOVE her hair? I mean unequivocally, would change nothing, has tresses of spun gold sprinkled with diamond dust, shake-it-out-Jen-Aniston, LOVE her hair?
I don't. While I'm a tad vain about mine, the texture is annoying, the current color drab, & the cut in desperate need of h-e-l-p.
As frustrating as it can be, it always brings me a surge of joy when I find something that really works.
The texture of my hair is wavy. Not curly, just a bit wavy. Enough so that when it's humid it poofs, when it's cold it goes limp, when it's clean it's got volume galore (with a crown of frizz), and when it gets misted on it looks near perfect.
It's a PAIN. Living 5 miles from Lake St. Clair means that here my hair gets more than enough humidity to make it a near-embarrassment. Mousse doesn't work, gel doesn't work, leave-in conditioner doesn't work.
But I found a magical mix that does. I mix a dime-sized amount of gel (any cheap gel - I currently have the $2.54 tube of Garnier Fructis) with a quarter sized dollop of Kiehl's Cream with Silk Groom (fyi - $19/ 4oz... I still have 3/4 of a bottle which I bought last December). Separately, these two are as ineffective as the New Orleans floodwall. Mixed together and finger-combed through my hair and it's glorious! No frizz, no weird waves, no sticky spots.
I've also started drying my hair with a cotton t-shirt, and amazingly, this too is helping to keep the halo of frizzies at bay. I have yet to try "plopping" my hair, but it's next on my list.
