Girrrrl, You Put WHAT In Your Hurr???

Ya'll, I am getting LAZY with concern to my hurr. I can't remember the last time I blew it dry straight and then curled it. In the summer, it's just so much EASIER to let it be what it wants to be (i.e., sort of wavy/curly) so that is what I have been doing. Oh sure, I add a few curls with my flat iron (I have also realized my hurr looks WAY better/more natural when I use the flat iron as opposed to the curling iron to curl it).


Sometimes I may go as far as blowing my bangs dry to the side, but then I put any combination of the following into it and let it dry on its own:

Got 2b Fat-tastic Instant Collagen Infusion Thickening Plumping mousse
L'Oreal Ever Style Volume Root Lifting Spray

No, I don't put ALL of the above in at once, typically the leave in conditioner and curl cream. Or I'll just put mousse in the bottom, scrunch it through, and leave it to dry on its own. The problem with this is that it takes my hair a LONG time to dry, like, several hours, so I have to either do it in an evening and leave enough time to dry before I go to bed, which I don't like to do because it just isn't as full and fluffy as I like the next day, or get up at the ass crack of dawn to let it dry if I'm going to work (which - let's face it - RARELY happens). 


If I have slept on it and am getting ready for work, as soon as I get up, I'll put more mousse in the bottom, re-scrunch, and then when that has dried, throw in some flat iron curls where it looks extra flat. I curl before I put makeup on, let it cool and set while I'm doing my face, and then comb through it with my fingers when I'm finished. When it looks how I want, I'll hit it with some Kenra Super Hold Finishing Spray 25. LOVE that stuff, because it provides a good amount of hold without being sticky or stiff.


As much as I am enjoying my lazy hair, the biggest downside to wearing it this way is that I can't get quite as many days out of it before I have to rewash, probably because I use so many more products in it every day. And when I say quite as many, I mean I can probably get a good 2 - 3 days as opposed to 3 - 4 without washing. Disgusting, you say? You say tomato, I say lazy. And awesome. Because only doing my hurr every few days or so ROCKS.

i'm getting real lazy, too! but i wash at night, let it dry while i sleep...it's usually still a little damp in the morning which is perfect, because i blow dry while twirling it and i end up with the loose curls. then i might tough up with the curling iron....but that's it...no product whatsoever!

For the life of me I cannot figure put curls with the straight iron. I get a straight strand with a fried wingy wave at bottom. Not attractive.

Your hurr looks amaze.
