New 'Do

I am a low maintenance gal. I rarely wear makeup. I honestly can't even recall the last time I put makeup on.  My hair has to be easy to do. I can't seem to bring myself to spend 15+ minutes on appearance.  It's just how I am.

My vanity choices include coloring my hair and tweezing my eyebrows and shaving my legs about once a week. 

Today, I treated myself to a hairdo that should be super easy to take care of.  Back in September, I worked up the nerve to make an appointment with a woman from my church who has a wonderful reputation- I see her great work on my friends all the time.  She found natural curl in my hair and that gave me a great wash-and-wear hairstyle.  Wash, towel dry, scrunch in some mousse or spray gel, done.

But the next day, it would take a little work to get my hair right.  I don't wash my hair every morning (for a variety of reasons).

I had been on the fence about this Brazilian Blowout.  I was worried about the chemicals, reports of issues with the fumes, and hearing that people were paying up to $400! I thought it was insane.

Today, I had it done.  It did not cost me anywhere near $400.  It was not a dripping with chemicals process.  And there is a good chance that my hair will be sleek and in control for the next month. 

The before is washed, brushed, air dried and no product.

Do you love it?! Your husband must feel like he's cheating on you!haha

I like to change things up, too. My hair is short right now. Not sure I love it, but I do like the change.
