Because I have naturally frizzy, kinky, frazzled, cowlicky all around unruly hair, I go to great lengths to keep it straight. In the summer, this gets a little trickier. Last week, I called in the big guns and got another Brazilian Keratin blow out. For those of you blessed with carefree hair, this is a chemical treatment that entails almost two hours at the salon, and then you can’t get your hair wet for at least 24 hours. Not a problem for me…cause I’m an expert at this point on keeping my hair dry.
The whole experience reminded me of a fun gift I received a few years back, from some friends that knew my penchant for keeping my locks away from water. Basically it consisted of this very shower cap (that I still use to this day, embarrassing but true) a ridiculous, over the top sixties style swim cap, that I’ve never used, this chic little umbrella and Klorane dry shampoo. Of course if I’m every caught in a deluge without my umbrella, I’ve always got a few of these fun little elastics on hand and a versatile little scarf in my bag. Another good way to extend the life of a great blow out, is to sleep on one of these silk pillowcases. What beauty/hair quirks and tricks to you use to get by?
