my hair has always and will always be the bane of my life. when i was a baby i had what can only be described as a white girl afro. really tight blonde ringlets. they obviously disappeared as it grew longer, thicker and darker. being the shitty teenager i was i never listened to my mum when she said i'd ruin my hair with ridiculous amounts of hair dye and bleach. (i've been blonde, black, various shades of brown and errrr.. pink) mother dearest also said i'd regret it when i thought it'd be a good idea to cut my waist length hair to an ear length bob. obviously now i'm older and indeed somewhat wiser i can vouch that MOTHERS ARE ALWAYS RIGHT.
anyway about three years ago i decided to just stop dying my hair before i ended up bald. i sported a weird ombre when i was growing out a lighter brown for a while but it was pretty painless. ever since my hairdresser made my hair look like this i've realised perhaps my hair is in alright condition now, finally. HURRAH! i've also realised that having super straight sleek shiny hair just doesn't suit me AT ALL. i know it's not to everyones taste but i enjoy big hair and even a bit of frizz.
as for products, erm i rarely use them. i've just started using lee staffords for hair that doesn't grow past a certain length treatment but i haven't used it enough to notice any difference. i only wash my hair once a week so it might take a while! (i know some people might find this gross, but it's what works for me. if i washed it any more i'd spend half my life drying it.) if i do use any products i use moroccanoil and frizz-ease, i find both work amazingly well and since using the moroccanoil i've definitely noticed an improvement in the overall condition of my hair. loves it!
