Embarking on a healthy hair journey requires a lot of maintenance and upkeep that can be hard to maintain when you have a busy schedule. One of the biggest things I struggle with is finding time to wash (or co-wash) my hair every week like I used to. Or the energy. Because we all know that wash day can be a bit of a hassle and a lot of struggle with all the detangling, styling and such. So much work! That’s why most of the time, I like to keep my hair up in a bun because it doesn’t require much work and I can go straight from wet hair into a bun that I don’t have to touch again until wash day.
But every now and then, I like to get a little jazzy and straighten my hair to feel fierce and actually look my age for once. The last time I straightened my hair was for Ipsy Generation Beauty LA earlier this year and the results were great. My hair was flowing, had lots of body and shine. I was able to keep up with my straight hair for about a week before I came back home (and back to reality) and went to make a coffee before work. For some reason, my mom is terrible at completely closing bottles and this particular day she didn’t snap the lid on the coffee creamer. So when I grabbed it out of the fridge, creamer went everywhere including all over the left side of my hair. OMG! I love my mom to death but that morning I could have rung her neck LOL!
