I went to a girls night out with some old friends a few weeks ago and confessed to not knowing how to do my hair in the Florida humidity. To which I got looks of dismay from my friends who couldn't believe I was having such a struggle. But I do think there are lots of contributing factors, and wondering if anyone else has some tips. Truth be told I'm a stay at home momma and its hot in the sunshine state, my main styling goal is a cute pony tail, which I've been failing at due to numerous factors:
After a few years of taking pre-natal vitamins I have some very thick locks, which I'm just not used to.
I have some layers I'm looking to control from shorter hair cuts in the past.
I don't have hardly any time (or choose not to spend hardly any time) to style my hair.
And last my not least, my main issue is all these new curly ringlets I've acquired since having James. Fun fact for all my non-mommy friends here: your hair falls out like crazy after giving birth. And guess what? Mine grew back a totally new way-make way stick straight hair I've had my whole life to welcome curly ringlets -it's crazy. One third of my hair is stick straight, one third wavy and one third curly curly curly.
My whole head won't curl using curling products and won't stay straight after a 45 minute blowout and round with the flat iron. What's a girl to do? I've watched tutorials on UTube, tried far too expensive products and even when I take the time, don't get the results I'd like.
I just got a new cut that makes things a little more manageable, thank goodness!
Am I alone? Should I do a keratin treatment? How much are they? Cute pony ideas?
