For Flat Irons

30 Nov

They (whoever “they” are) always say that one wants what one can’t have. It’s true, isn’t it? For me, this is absolutely the case when it comes to my hair.

I have this God-given curly hair that, at times, rivals any 1980’s hair band member’s locks. I wear it curly quite often during the work week (when my give a damn is busted), but I blow it out straight on the weekends (and important work days).

I remember being in high school and desperately wanting to wear my hair straight. At the time, all I had to “straighten” my hair after the blow drying process was a curling iron that I would run down my hair to get the curl out. As you can imagine, it didn’t work that well at all. A few times, I had a girlfriend iron it, but again, that didn’t work quite as well as I had hoped.

Enter my first flat iron circa 1999. This little invention has changed my life, so today, I speak for all the naturally curly ladies out there when I say that I am oh-so-thankful for my flat iron. For giving me what I always wanted – but couldn’t have.

    I totally know how you feel. If I get somewhere without my flat iron I'm near tears. I'm gonna have some serious arthritis in my right hand in the next few years… But at least I'll have straight hair 🙂
