Since the day I was born my mum always knew I would end up hating my hair by the time I hit my teens. You see naturally my hair is strawberry blonde and curly as hell. strangers used to comment on how lovely my hair was, how much they would love to have curls like mine and the colour was the loveliest colour ever.
When I started primary school no one commented on my hair colour or the fact it was curly and frizzy. So it never bothered me one bit. then I got to high school and then the problems began!! I heard every taunt under the sun and boy did it hurt. At 13 I bought 2 bottles of non permant dark brown hair dye which went horrible wrong it turned out black and never washed out. So ever since I was 13 I have dyed my hair once a month, cant work out how many hair dyes thats been over 10 years as its been that many colours and having to buy 2 or 3 hair dyes every time I want to change colours.
Another thing, I always hear from friends or see on facebook a girl or adult moaning how frizzy their hair is and I look at them before its been straightened and thought to myself what on earth are you moaning for?? as 9 times out of 10 their hair is almost straight or slightly wavy. Fair enough every one hate their hair but I always think you dont realise how lucky you are it only takes you half an hour to an hour to fix make it look how you want it too. Try having my hair which can take anything from an hour n a haf to 5 hours to get it right.
Having naturaly curly hair can be a pain in the bum sometimes and I mean a real pain, sometimes I feel cursed having the type of hair, I do, but thank god every day for my nicky clarke hair dryer and straighteners. They have been an absolute god send as they are the only straighteners that work. so next time you wake up or dry your hair and think oh my days how frizzy is my hair today??
