When I was small all I wanted was very long blonde, silky dead straight hair… I got the blonde right but that was all that came true in my hair dreams… I had curly, slightly frizzy thick untameable hair… the kind of hair that is the perfect barometer for humidity and rain… the kind of hair that doubles in size at the mere hint of moisture…the kind of hair that won’t be told what to do… the kind of hair that requires management and lots of it… So that means I know about hair… how to straighten it and torture it in many different languages… I have tried it all in the name of straight smooth ‘un goldilocks’ like hair … I have bound it, ironed it, almost killed it with chemicals not to mention the millions of blow dryers, heated rollers and straighteners that have saved me from a frizzy hell… and yet my hair has survived and continued to grow… Nothing short of a miracle.
One of my friends describes this straight hair obsession best… she says we live in ‘hair prison’ and she is absolutely right… so when I find a product that makes me feel like I am out on parole… I have to tell you… Shu Uemura hair care products are totally fabulous (and no I don’t work for them..)… they make the getting smooth easy, they even make coloured tresses shiny (and I need a little colour… not a lot but just a highlight here and there to add a little drama)… These potions restore and revive and like the SKII masks… they are one of my beauty maintenance necessities. A little expensive… yes.. but they do last a long time because less is more… I never believe that when beauty consultants convince me that a mere dab of an unaffordable creme will cover my face and neck area… When does that ever work? I always use three times more than they suggest… but in this case too much is really too much.
