Okay, how many of you out there have a problem with their hair?
I know I do!
I get asked a lot about my hair. I mainly get asked "how do you get it like that"? Sometimes it makes me think "what is wrong with it"? I have always been teased or comments have been made about my hair, ever since I could remember.
I remember one girl in high school use to call me "Elaine" from Seinfeld. I never really understood why, but I am still praying for her. You see I wasn't really blessed with the Pantene Pro V commercial hair. My hair is naturally frizzy in the front and okay in the back. If I let my hair dry after a shower it literally looks like I stuck my finger in the electric socket. Seriously, it does!!!
Well, over the years, and after becoming a mom I did not have time to do all that fancy hair stuff. You know the whole wash, blow dry (which made my hair worse), gel, style, flat iron (which I use to blow dry back in the day because I couldn't afford a real flat iron), and then shine. Instead, it is shower, and put my hair back in a ponytail and spray with hairspray. So most days I look like this:
***This is my beautiful blessing***
This picture was taken on Christmas Day. As you can see it is pulled back and has that "slicked" look. I can't stand it, but it works for me. It takes a matter of 10-15 mins a day for me to do make-up and hair. I do not have time everyday to anything more to it.
If I want to wear my hair down, this is how I have to accomplish that:
*take a shower at night, and let hair dry while sleeping.
*if we have an appt or somewhere to go I have to get up or start getting ready an hour earlier to flat iron
*it literally takes me 45 mins-1 hr to flat iron my hair (SERIOUSLY)!!
*after it is all straight I have to control those little flyaways you get from using a flat iron.
*then I am done....total time 1 HOUR 30 MINS minus the sleep hours!!!
Just to look like this:
***I sure do love this beautiful child (thank you Jesus)***
My hair is much longer than it shows in the picture. I would love for my hair to look like this everyday but it doesn't. And I am okay with that, because God created me in His image!!!
This works for me!!!
