A Magic Wand of Sorts
nope, your eyes are not deceiving you. my hair has been looking just a bit different the last couple of weeks. not only did i decide to lighten and brighten my locks (thank you erica at HOUSE OF CABELO – yes, i drive all the way to pleasanton to get my hair did…i used to fly to LA…this is marked improvement), but i’ve also taken to a new curling method – the curling wand.
i’ve been embracing my natural curls for a while now. rather than spend endless amounts of time and money – not to mention electricity – in hopes of taming and slimming my tresses – i prefer to rock the wave. bigger is better, if i do say so myself. i tend to let my hair air dry these days (because i’m lazy), and if the hair is a bit dirty – say after a run or day 3 of not washing – no worries. while it would look super grease ball if i tried to keep it straight, the curl seems to accept the grit and grim with open arms. but my natural curls are a bit all over the place and so they need a bit of help. this is where the wand comes in.
who knows why it took me so long to make the switch from the traditional, clamped curling iron to the tapered and clamp-free variety. but i’m so glad i finally jumped on the bandwagon. sure, i risk permanently inflicting harm to my very sensitive fingers each and every time i attempt a curl – those irons get dam hot – but i’ve always been one to risk my own personal safety for the benefit of looking good.
best of all, the wand was totally affordable. after spending EBN’s future orthodontia budget on FLAT IRONS and curling irons of various sizes, my CONAIR WAND was totally reasonable. my hair is also holding onto the curl way better than before, which is a good thing for sure.
with my lighter hair and curls i’m looking more and more like the wee one everyday:
