Ahhhhh, my hair feels so good down and straight.  It’s been FOREVER it seems since I’ve had my hair JUST down!  And someone asked if I have naturally straight hair.  That I do!  It’s a little wavy though but not enough to get any good curls out of while blowing it drying.
Last night I went to this wedding and didn’t have time to wash my hair.  Instead, I used some dry shampoo.  Have you heard of the stuff?  You spray it in your roots and it absorbs all the oils and makes your hair smell so yummy!  The Suave Dry Shampoo is my favorite and you can pick it up at any grocery store.   As far as washing goes, for those who have asked… start with just one extra day from what you’re already doing.  So if you’re washing it every day right now, start with washing it every other day.  Your hair will stop producing as much oil and when it does, try going one day more.  When my hair gets greasy I like to use accessories and hats.  Basically anything that keeps my hair out of my face.  Every other day is so do able.  So if you are washing your hair everyday, shoot for every other.  You’ll be amazed, I promise. Oh, and the reason to not wash your hair daily.  Your hair will be so much healthier!  Washing it too often strips it of it’s natural oils and that’s when you get dry, brittle hair.  And if you’re trying to grow it out- most likely it will just keep breaking off and will take for ever.  So be nice to your hair!
Don’t you worry my friends.  There is a video tutorial on how I do my bangs.  So many people have asked, I thought I’d throw it in there! Sorry it’s a little long.  You can skip through whatever you want!
Have a happy Sunday!  Love ya!
