Jiffy Lube and Teenagers

Day 10: I love complimentsThis!  This is the style I’ve been wanting to post.  I’m a little bummed though because it didn’t turn out very well today.  This style normally looks better than this.  But my arms got tired and I ran out of time so this had to do.

I’m on Day 10 which means it’s the home stretch. My hair actually looked pretty good this morning (even after exercising) and if I didn’t have to work I would have worn in down.  But it was starting to move like a wig so I had to dig into my bag of tricks and jazz it up a little.

This is my #1 trick.  Every time I wear my hair like this I get compliments.  Here are a few examples:

Jiffy Lube guy: “I’m not flirting so don’t take this the wrong way, but I really like your hair.”
(This is my favorite and I immediately came home and told my husband.)

Client at work: “Wow, I really like your hair.”

Teenage girl in my car (not related): “Ohhh!  I love your hair”

Teenage girl #2 in my car (still not related): “Yeah, it looks really pretty”.

Teenage girl in my car (related): *silence*

Total time from shower to shoes: 35 minutes

The nape of my neck has secrets

Day 8: Thick and luxurious, if 'they' only knew!

Day 8: Someone asked me today, “So how greasy IS your hair?”.  The emphasis was on the IS as though this is some big secret I wouldn’t share like my weight or how much money I make. Now, before I answer the question take another look at that picture. 

Does that hair look greasy?  Does it look dirty?  Does it look like I ignored it all day, left the house with it soaked at the nape with sweat and oil?  Does that hair in any way say anything other than Fabulous?


But the answer to all those questions is “Yes!”.  If you don’t think that by Day 8 you won’t be questioning your sanity you’re wrong.  By this time it’s not unusual for me to flirt with the idea of throwing in the towel and washing my hair.  But I never do.  You know why?

Because it takes too long.
Because my hair will ultimately look worse.
Because nobody really cares what my hair looks like anyway.
Because one day of bad hair is worth many days of good hair.
Because this is my lifestyle baby and I like it!

That hair up there in that picture?  It is so heavy with “natural oils” that it feels wet.  Gross huh?  Take another look at the picture.  Do I care?  No.  And today was an exercise day so it was also sweaty.  Do you know what you get when you mix sweat with eight days of “natural oils”?  Thicker hair.

And that’s why my hair was super great today!
