xlovebecomesher: (Dirty Little Secret)
One of my goal's for 2009 that's on my list was to find a new hairstyle. I think I did. Well relatively new at least for me. I think I'm going to try at least for the rest of the year is to keep my hair straight. Why is that relatively new, you ask?

My hair and I have battled each other for years. As a child, my hair and I got along. We were cool with each other and I was very cute. I'm not sure what I did to piss my hair off or if my hair decided to take my last name literally (because enough people have made fun of my last name and deem it very appropriate for me lol) or my hair got involved in the wrong crowd...but my hair was very, very frizzy and being a kid, I had no idea what the hell to do with nor did I really care enough. Well, until the cute black girls with the perfect hair alternated making fun of me and pondering how they could make me over. I have heard every single suggestion in the book and then some. Nonetheless, I wore my hair straight and then it would be frizzy and thick. If I wore it curly then someone always had a comment how it should be straight. I couldn't win. I mostly wore my hair straight though in high school. Then I got to college and there was no one there to straighten my hair for me! I was spoiled for years having Mommy do my hair that I was so lazy to do my own...so all throughout college and even after until like 3 weeks ago, I only wore my hair curly. It's so easy to do ... I'd wash my hair, brush it out, scrunch some gel through it, and then let it air dry! To make my hair straight however takes about an hour sitting with a straightening iron [it straightens my hair much better than the days of a blow dryer - I wish I had known about straightening irons in middle school, it would have made my life easier!]. The only time my hair would be straight was when I'd get a hair cut and get a wash and blow dry or when there was a special event.

When I was up in PA last, Jon asked me to straighten my hair because he hadn't seen my hair straight in awhile and I did. I found that I've forgotten how much I enjoy my hair straight! I love the feeling of my hair and running my fingers through it because it is so soft. I also forgot how long my hair is [it's half way down my back these days]. I feel more comfortable with myself, more sophisticated, more....me. For the past 3 weeks, I've only kept my hair straight and I love it. I get a lot of compliments too hahaha. So that's my new hair goal and style for now ... hopefully I can stick to this and not take the easy way out :D
