Oh hai, I hate my hair.

Maybe it's because I'm feeling vomity. But tonight I hate my hair. I want to shave it off and start anew.

Allow me to stroke my own ego for a moment, but when I was younger, I had beautiful, soft, fine, blonde hair. It has never behaved well or done anything ladylike at all. It's always just kind of hung there looking boring, but at least it was a pretty color and felt soft, you know?

I started highlighting it when I was about 25. I swore I would never do that, but I suffer from the towhead curse, which means that my once pretty blonde hair turned darker and mousy as I got into my 20s. The highlights have always made me feel good about myself, because they look natural and they give my hair that little umph that it needs.

But now my hair feels drier than it used to, and you can see my roots, and I am just not good at styling my hair nor do I feel like putting the energy into it.

Which leads me back to the whole hating my hair conundrum.

I think I need a makeover. Anyone want to help me?

I am right there with you. =/

Sadly, I have been rocking the same style/color for 12 years. That's pretty lame.

I suck at styling my hair. It only looks good on the days I actually get it cut.

I love makeovers! I also happen to know a pretty awesome stylist.

go to a new stylist at a new fancy salon and tell them to do whatever they want, or whatever they think its best for your hair and face. i do this whenever i feel like shaving off my hair and starting over, which is often!

My sister is now VERY blond and the only way her hair will look good is if she uses this shampoo and conditioner

I also suggest washing it at night and then flat ironing it in the morning. My hair is always much better behaved and also softer, silkier the day after a wash. :-)
