Love - Hate - Hair

I have a truly love-hate relationship with my hair. I have thick, long, very curly hair. As a child it was tangled most of the time and as an adult it still gets pretty tangled. I've tried it long, short, curly, permed, and straightened. I have only had a couple hairdressers who I felt really knew what they were doing. I'm struggling right now with my hairdresser I like what she does but her prices keep going up, up, up. Last time I was there it was $60 to get my hair cut because she prefers to wash it, blow dry it, and flat iron it before cutting. So I have an appointment with my friend's hairdresser to see what we can do. We'll see...but here are a few pictures of my hair over the past few years...my appointment is next Friday I'll post pics when she's done.

I am having a hard time finding a hair dresser I like here in Va because of the price as well. In Pa my hair dresser did cut, color, style, and eyebrow wax for $65!!! Now people want $60 for just a cut and style? I just can't bring myself to pay it, so every time I go to Pa I schedule an appointment with her. lol Also My aunt has thick, curly hair and struggles with styling it. I found it funny that you said your hair loved England because when she worked in England she always loved her hair! Can't wait to see your new hair style! :)

Oooh, my favorite is the curly in England! Was that one easy to take care of? Here in Okinawa, my hair just wants to puff out and be frizzy. I don't know WHAT I'm going to do with it.

I have the exact opposite problem. My hair is thin and so flat! I'd love thick, curly hair... but I know the grass is always greener on the other side!

I nominated you for "One Lovely Blog" because I just love reading your blog!

My hair is fickle. It will be fine, fine, fine, fine for days, then overnight HOLY HECK CUT ME OFF! I am currently in the Holy Heck phase. Thank goodness for a hair appointment tomorrow!
