Ring a bell! Day 14 is here at last!

Day 14 and you can't even tell!Day 14 is here at last!  Can you tell this hair hasn’t been washed in 2 weeks?  I can’t.  And that is my point about the Hair Care Girl Lifestyle.

I love Day 14.  I love it because my sense of determination and commitment has been thoroughly satisfied.  I love it because I met my goal.  I love it because I know that once again there is not much I need to do.

And I love it because I know that tomorrow I get to wash my hair!  And washing it will be such a relief.  I mean, how many people luxuriate and appreciate the process of washing their hair?   For them it’s just “ho-hum”.  For me it’s a Holiday.  Believe me.  When you only wash your hair twice a month you really, really enjoy it!

This hair you see above?  In two weeks (14 days, 1/2 a month) it has been:

Shampoo-ed: 1 time (only!)
Full Blow Dry: 1 time (only!)
Straightened: 1 time
Rained on: 1 time
Ponytailed: 4 times
Curled: 3 times
Put in a bun: 3 times
Worn down: 7 times
Wind blown beyond measure: 5 times (brrrr!)
Sweaty: 6 times (ewwwww!)

Some days were easy and my hair pleasantly surprised me.  There were a few days where I just never felt like my hair looked that good.  But you know what?

When I was an everyday hair washer I never liked my hair.  I always had hopes of wearing it down but I usually ended up pulling it back.  Feeling frustrated with my hair used to be the norm.  Now it’s the exception.

And this is why I live the Hair Care Girl lifestyle!

Total time from shower to shoes (Day 14!): 20 minutes

The Naked Lady Said: Moroccan Oil

Moroccan Oil saved this hairCan you believe it’s been 11 days since I washed my hair?  Yesterday it was so bad I had to wear it tucked back in a braid AND a bun.  So, how in the world did this recovery happen?

In a word (two words really), Moroccan Oil.

Have you heard about Moroccan Oil?  The first time I heard about it was at the gym.  The lady next to me was naked and putting this great smelling stuff in her hair.  After I got over the shock of her being naked right next to me I gathered up my courage and asked her about her delicious smelling hair product.  She told me it was Moroccan Oil.  I didn’t give it another thought.

Fast forward a couple of months and my trusty hair gal puts it in my hair.  And I’m like, “Yummmm, what is that smell?”  And she tells me, “It’s Moroccan Oil”.  So I bought some.  I’m such an easy mark.

So last night when I took my hair out of all the knots and braids it was looking pretty dry and scraggly.  Sort of like straw.  But worse.  So I bushed it out and applied a generous portion of Moroccan Oil.  I massaged it through, wrapped my hair in my trusty scrunchie and went to bed.

This morning when I took out my scrunchie I had nice soft supple waves of healthy looking hair.  All I had to do was tame the very ends in the back so they were all facing the same direction.  Everything else worked like magic.

I know it’s a little bouffant-y but that’s okay.  When I wear this hair style I feel like a Southern Belle.  And that’s a good feeling.  Y’all.

Time from shower to shoes: 30 minutes
