Hair update.

I'm finally figuring out my new hair, a whole month later. I do love it, as does everyone else. Just keep the compliments coming!

I was a little stressed when at first, it seemed dry and unmanageable. But through trial and error, I've nailed down the best products for styling it:

1) John Frieda "Sheer Blonder" shampoo (only 2x a week)
2) L'Oreal EverSleek smoothing deep conditioning balm (cone-free and sulfate free, leave in for 5 minutes after shampooing and then rinse)
3) Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Flat Iron Perfector (argan oil, misted onto dry hair before flat ironing)

The key is to only wash it and style it twice a week. Any more than that and I'm looking at split ends and frizz up the wazoo. (What does "up the wazoo" mean, anyway? Is it pervy? Probably.)

I remember when I used to think it was gross that my Granny only washed and styled her hair once a week.  She'd freak out if rain was coming and she'd wear a scarf over her head to protect her hair.

Now, I get it.

Hope your Friday has been fun so far. I'm off to teach piano lessons!


  1. I love your hair! And shampoo only twice a week?!?! Wow, I'm jealous.

  2. I vote that you take more pics of your hair now that YOU'RE the one styling it. And from different angles. :)

  3. Valerie, I totally took this one today! :)

  4. I absolutely love your hair the way it is. :)

  5. You look great. I love the idea of embracing "messy" hair. I used to condition my hair everyday and it takes forever to dry. I've just go to figure out a way not to sleep crazy so it will look fine the next few days. Usually I just get lucky.

  6. wa·zoo /wɑˈzu/
    Pronunciation[wah-zoo] –noun, plural -zoos.
    1. the anus.
    2. the buttocks.
    3. up the wazoo, to an extreme degree or in great abundance: She's got problems up the wazoo.
    [Perhaps alteration of kazoo.]


I like feedback almost as much as I like food.
