Haha post titles don't get more straightforward than that do they? ^_~
So I finally attempted to curl my hair with my Sedu flat iron. I tried it once, many years ago, and it was a disaster. And, I've never been a fan of curling my hair. I like the curls that you achieve with rollers, but being the low maintenance, lazy girl that I am I would never go to the trouble of using them!
So I was watching youtube videos by some of my fav gurus, and I got inspired to give my flat iron another go. Did it right before jumping in the shower when my hair is oiliest haha. I like that with a flat iron you can vary the size of the curls by pulling faster/slower, or angling the iron.
This tee is also my new fav for weekend wear. $7.95 from H&M.
And here's me in the W Hotel bathroom with my everyday straight hair. I thought the carved side of the mirror was cool.
Didn't realize until looking at this pic how much my hair has lightened since dyeing it with the Palty. It's growing on me. I also love how much the dye has dried out my roots, and given them more volume and texture. My natural hair is sooooo incredibly oily it's disgusting, and makes my roots plaster to my scalp. I've tried everything from CO washing, to shampooing every other day, shampoo with sulfates, shampoo w/o sulfates... dyeing my hair is really the best and lowest maintenance way to battle the oiliness.
This is the video I used to learn how to curl with flat iron: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qrWwyPHrZxQ . It's by Sedu, only 1:54, and she shows how to create various curls (like holding the iron horizontal will create a tighter curl versus pulling the iron downward to create more beachlike curl). Nothing beats an under 2 minute video tutorial!
