dragged through a hedge backwards
I have been trying to grow my hair long. One length. I've tried long layers, I've tried shorter layers and now, I am trying one length. Ya know what? It's just not working.
I envy you girls with thick, straight hair sporting a few strategic highlights. I want that hair. That texture. Straight, thick and heavy. Now I don't really like Jennifer Aniston's hair, but the texture of her hair looks very manageable. Straight, weighty, able to behave itself. Or is this just an illusion? Do girls with straight, shiny hair spend hours straightening it?
For instance, can you let your hair just AIR DRY? Does it look normal afterwards or does it look like you've been dragged through a hedge backwards (my husband's description).
My hair is similar to this poor anonymous woman who I don't know. No... this is not me, it's almost exactly like my hair, though. Fine, flyaway hair. (sorry, lady)
I don't want to spend half an hour straightening it, or curling it. I just ponytail it and with the wind and humidity all these horrible fine little hairs break free and form a halo. Do you know what I mean?
What do I need? Product? Hours of straightening? Or maybe a really short (yikes) cut? I am tired, tired, tired of my hair. Not to mention that it never gets out of a ponytail. Never.
Advice needed. I think I may hack it off. Maybe something like this... Comments, product suggestions? Anyone?!
