I have such a love/hate relationship with my hair. It's thin, but I have a lot of it. It was a beautiful blonde color when I was young, but when I got older it started to darken just like everyone in my family before me. I also have a tendency to get split ends and my cut never looks great for a long time. I was told when I was little that I should sleep on a satin/silk pillowcase and it would help. I haven't ever done this. Anyway, just about the only thing that I love about my hair is the fact I can dry it in like 5 minutes (from sopping wet to dry). However, that makes blowing it out with a round brush a little difficult because I have to be fast! And I am here to tell you my hair will not hold style. And the coastal GA humidity makes it look frizzy and wavy every day!!!! I'm not writing this as a way to get "Oh no, your hair is pretty" comments, nor am I trying to degrade myself. It's just how I feel about my hair and it honestly causes me insecurity. I long for gorgeous, silky, and long blonde hair! I have been thinking a lot about my hair lately because I am in major need of a cut and color.
I am also kinda cheap and I HATE spending 100 bucks getting my hair colored. I get all over highlights (foils) and sometimes lowlights depending on how blonde I'm getting and the season. My stylist is awesome, but I feel like I get stuck in a hair rut so often because I never know what to tell her to do. Also, the highlights that I have been getting for about 7 years have made my hair get very dry. This is a new thing for me since I have never had issues with that before coloring. I talked to my stylist about Keratin treatments, but she told me it would be too heavy for my hair being that is is extremely fine and thin. So...I'm in a rut with my hair and need you girls to get me out of it! I am planning to make an appt in the next week or so for a cut and color. I have pinned a few styles that I like (the Jessica Simpson one is the inspiration I had in high school and loved that cut). I am contemplating bangs too. I will definitely go medium length on the cut. I adore long hair better than anything, but my fine hair has NO body with it. It looks more frumpy than bombshell on me. I need lots of layers and a shorter cut to make movement and style in my hair. I also can't do short short though (bob is a no) because it makes my face look fat and like a chipmunk.
I wish my hair would hold this style!!!!!
So, here is what I really really need to talk to you about What products do you like? I currently have Bed Head shampoos and conditioners in my shower, but I HATE them. It feels like my hair is so dry after using it, even though it is for dry/colored hair. I have used Biolage forever and really liked it, but I wanted to switch it up some too. I really only use salon quality hair products because I have not had luck with drugstore stuff, but I am open to anything! I am planning a trip to Ulta soon to get some stuff that I feel like I need desperately. I have also been doing a ever other day washing cycle, but I have such a hard time styling it on the second day. What do you girls do on your off days for washing? I feel like I always look a hot mess on those days! HELP!
