One day I was out and about running errands with my s.o and let’s just say when I looked in the mirror I saw more frizz then curl. I forced myself to get up get dressed and embrace where my hair was at that day.

We have all experienced a day when our hair just didn’t give off that va va voom.Well that was the day I was having. I usually love when my hair is fluffy and is giving me a bit of body. This day I had big hair but I felt it could use a deep conditioner cough or two.

My mom and my sister tried to explain the benefits of trimming your hair ,and I just wasn’t going for it.I wanted long hair.I didn’t want to lose any length.

I have to admit that I have been really lazy lately but you know like I know when you have an interview you have to put it on for them even if you’re not in the mood.
