You know that girl that wakes up with her hair in a damp bun from a bath the night before, lets it out...and has beautiful, bouncy hair all day? I don't either.
It's because she doesn't exist. Well, I take that back. There are two people I have met in my 36 years on this earth who wrap their hair in a bun for it to air-dry...and the result gives Victoria Secret models and Jared Leto some stiff competition. Nicole and Ali you know who you are.
The rest of us have to blow dry our hair. Why do we hate it so much when it makes us look so much better? We wax, we laser, we get Botox and lash extensions..hair extensions and peels...yet we can't stand the tedious reality of blow drying our hair every other day.
Imagine a girl in a simple black tee and jeans. Her hair is smooth with a gentle bend at the ends. She is wearing sunglasses and sandals walking down the street. Now, imagine a girl in stilettos and a beautiful silk dress. She is wearing the finest jewelry but her hair is stringy and unkept. Who do you consider more chic? We all know the answer.
Us moms in particular are guilty of blaming our unkept manes on the little ones running the show, but if we know what is best for us...it is not ordering the kale salad, nor is it applying the extra coat of lip gloss...it is blow drying our hair. Although tedious and cumbersome, fifteen minutes with a round brush will give your mane and your confidence an upgrade. So, stop reading this blog and checking your email. Get yourself to the bathroom for a date with your dryer.
