Oh how I wish- I could wake up daily and my hair would look like sheer perfection- a la Jennifer Aniston. However in the hair department I, for one was not so blessed in that department. So if you are like me and continue to have a love/hate relationship with your hair, then continue reading and be prepared to laugh as I put my words to paper In a Love Letter to My #DearHair…
You have been with my since the moment I was born into this world- albeit I didn’t have much then. You have been there for me through some rough times, like the time I thought that hairspray and a curling iron were to be used at the exact same time. You have been there for me through various lengths and styles, through ultra high and tight ponytails through all those cheer competitions all the way to that time I woke up with gum in you. As sorry as I am for some of the torture I have put you through, you have been full of some contradictions as well. For starters, let’s talk about how you are dry, brittle and semi damaged. I have nurture you, I try to protect you, I even go out of my way to make sure that you are full of moisture at all times. But for some reason, the first slight chance of wacky Southern California weather and you turn into a frizzy mess. Why is that? Why is it that, I can spend hours straightening you and the first sign of sweat or water- you turn into a fro? I can wash you at 8 am in the morning and yet after a half hour of blow-drying you lay flat for less than 5 minutes before becoming a baby fro.I love how you look when I just leave the hair salon after a fresh haircut. I love how you look after a fresh blowout, but yet you always seem to find a way to break out into a bit of frizz action or turn into a kinky mess. Why? Remember that horrific idea I had many years ago? I am sorry I didn’t realize heat protector was an important aspect in order to keep you safe and nurtured. I am sorry that I didn’t always listen to my mom when she told me to not attempt to dye you with peroxide like all the other kids at school were. I should have listened. I wish I had listened, but I also wish you would make up your mind and stop changing your mind about how you feel day in and day out. My #dearhair at the end of the day I will always be there for you through thick and straight, frizz and kinky. But I am sorry this whole dry, brittle, damaged hair act has got to STOP NOW and I have the perfect solution.
