Sometimes I get stuck in a rut.
Same ol’ routine, without even realizing that it might be time for a change.
Take my flat iron for example.
It’s about 6 years old.
Cracks, mystery discoloration, and a melted cord.
But yet, every time I straighten my hair,
I faithfully bust out my hunk of junk
and attempt to tame my mane.
The result: straw like straight hair, I call it “crunchy hair”.
I have never quite gotten the “sleek-straight” look I am going for,
and I always thought it was because I was using the wrong technique.
Misikko sent me this brand new Hana flat iron,
and I was blown away at the difference it made.
My hair came out straight AND silky.
My hair never got stuck or tangled on the flat iron,
and I no longer looked like I had split ends.
1. Wet hair
2. I let it air dry for a bit so you can see all my crazy cowlicks and frizz.
3. I part my hair and blow dry the bottom half first.
4. Then,I blow dry the top half. I try to dry the top half in an upwards motion to give it more volume. I part my hair again and flat iron the bottom half first, Then I flat iron the top half. I use a large round brush to get a mini Snookie poof going in the back.
And now, a moment of pure honesty.
I like to think I hide my hair pulling VERY well.
I have my extensions to give the illusion that I have more hair.
Currently, I am pulling the majority of hair from the top of my head…
Hardest spot to hide a bald spot, let me tell you.
I use Joan Rivers hair powder to cover the bald spots on top of my head.
Here is before the powder:
And then after I finish flat ironing and filling in with powder:
Misikko also sent me a super rad feather extension for my hair.
The best part is that it is DIY, so all I needed was a pair of pliers and I was able to put it in myself.
Feather Hair Extension c/o Misikko
I prefer the subtle look with of a feather extension, so I put it under a large section of hair so it just peeks through.
And that’s the latest in my hair adventures.
