Two Bits

Posted: January 3, 2010 in goals, meme

First off:


Here I am! New haircut and color, which you can’t really tell by this picture. Highlights and lowlights, in “caramel” and “coffee”, per my food-oriented colorist. I told her she could lick my hair if she was so inclined. She wasn’t.

You’d never know by this photo that I have stick-straight hair. I use Foxy Curls to achieve this look. I apply a dab about the size of a quarter to towel-dried hair after my shower, then when I’m ready to blow dry I flip it upside down and scrunch it while drying on high heat/low speed until it’s dry (or mostly dry, sometimes I leave a tiny bit of moisture to prevent frizz). Then I apply a palmful of mousse to help the curls last – and they do, all day long. The thing I like about Foxy Curls is that it doesn’t make my hair crunchy and doesn’t build up.

Thus endeth your styling lesson for the day.


Today’s 3P:

Positive: I got up at 7:00 and stayed up, which means I won’t/didn’t sleep the day away like I did yesterday (when I got up at NOON).

Productive: I have work to do, but I’ll be best pleased with myself today if I get to Trader Joe’s for some diet-worthy foods.

Plan: I am getting out into the fresh air today – perhaps I’ll take Portia for a walk. Poor dog has been neglected for the past two weeks while Amanda has been hanging out with her boyfriend.

    Dahlink, the hair, it is BUTTAH!!!
    Stick-straight? That’s so funny. I spend many hours and a lot of money to straighten my Jew-fro.

    Love the picture and your hair. You so cute!

    I love the toussled look on everyone else…but me. I see how cute your hair and everyone else’s looks and then I try to do my hair like that. I end up brushing it out throughout the day/night because I’m weird and I feel messy. I embraced my stick straight hair a long time ago, I guess.

      😀 Fanks! I actually can’t wait until tomorrow to post something above that mug o’ mine! Can you say, chipmunk cheeks? Sheeeeeesh.

      You’ve got beautiful hair. Don’t mess with perfection.

    Where were you and your hair advice in the early 90s when I wanted to do something with MY stick-straight Axl ‘do?

    Beautiful! I love it!
