Rainy Day Hair & a Confession

Happy October!!

Let's chat about hair.  How awesome is hair? I mean it comes in so many different colors, and textures.. Yep, I'm a weirdo!

So anyway.. I have very thick (like crazy thick), coarse and naturally curly hair.  Who cares right? Well I'm sure that I'm not alone in my hair type, so even if your hair is similar, you can benefit from this post.  Thanks to my hair type, my hair and humidity do not get along very well, and whenever my hair gets into contact with water, it forgets the 30 minutes that I spent blow drying and curling it, and immediately resorts to its natural state.. chaos. Usually if there was even a hint of rain in the forecast, I would put my hair into a messy bun and call it a day.

So now, for my confession: I am a Shampoo Snob.  To make up for my snobbishness though, I am also an eternal optimist. Seriously, whenever new brands come out, I'll try them.  Pantene can make your hair grow a foot in a month, I'll try it! Herbal Essence has made that fantastic smell you get in the shower, last for days, Sign me up!  So when I saw John Frieda's Frizz Ease Smooth Start Shampoo & Conditioner, I was like "SOLD!".
I have the repairing, because I do a lot of damage to my hair because I style it constantly.

 Today, I put it to the test.  I shampooed, conditioned, used my every day CHI Keratin Mist leave in strengthening treatment, and started the monotonous task of blow drying my hair.   I got my hair decently smooth and straight (I was impressed, but not "I will never be without this shampoo for the rest of my life" impressed).  I curled my hair a little bit (I like some bounce!) and set out about my day.  After Spanish, I had to go into Walmart (my own personal hell). I go in get all the things on my list and and go outside into a torrential down pour.  Seriously... It was crazy!! One minute it was sunny, the next it was dark, thundery and pouring.  I had no umbrella or rain coat, so I calmly pushed my cart in my flip flops to my car letting my hair get wet.  I figured worst case, I'll throw it up.

Cut to me having to make a quick pit stop and knowing I'd be seeing a guy that I kind of find precious... I looked in my mirror, and I was shocked.. My hair didn't just look decent enough for me to leave it down.. my hair looked kind of awesome.

This is seriously after getting rained on, driving for 15 minutes and then getting home where it was sunny!

Bottom Line: Frizz Ease shampoo and conditioner.. it really works!!  I Love it!! Go get yourself some!!

That's all for now!
