My hair has always been thin and straight, and I’m a girl who’s not altogether that adventurous. Nor do I adapt to change very well. So on those bad hair days when I wake up and my hair isn’t straight, it reaaaaaaally bothers me (the reason for my dependence on Sunsilk’s Straighten-Up 24/7 Creme back when I couldn’t afford anything more expensive).
I had always wanted a straightener of my own – for those bad hair days, and for the days when I want my hair to look extra sleek and straight. I’d mentioned this in passing to Dark when we first started dating – lo and behold, I got a Solia flat iron (he did his research well!) as my first Christmas present from him, which took me completely by surprise!
I never expected him to get me something useful that I actually loved. Past boyfriends had always gotten me things I liked, but didn’t really need. And when you get a stuffed animal for every occasion… well. You catch my drift.
Nevertheless, I still don’t use it very often because I don’t tend to wake up with hair looking like Medusa and I don’t want to damage my hair with frequent styling.
Doesn’t she look properly distressed by the state of her hair? LOL
Once in a while I’d try curling my hair with my straightener, but I really don’t think I look good in curls – it just looks so weird, and different. Maybe my hair is just too thin and won’t hold curls. Maybe I’m not using the right products to make it stay curled. Maybe (most likely), I’m just bad at it.
I haven’t yet had the courage to walk out in public with curls. Hm.
I’m entertaining the idea of getting a curling iron. Of course, if I do happen to invest in one, it would have to be of reasonable quality. Although to be honest, I don’t see what the point is if I don’t use it.
Any opinions on the Babyliss Pro TT Tourmaline Curling Iron?
I think I’ll just stick with practicing with my straightener before I shower. If I have the time.
