I have to be honest, I’ve never really been one to curl my hair. Up until this point, all my ventures with curlers have resulted in tangles or a disappointing poodle situation. See this photo of me at prom in 2008 as evidence of the latter.
I took this as a sign that I should never curl my hair again, until my girl Ruby Frost (you know, my girl, like we’re mates) teamed up with V05 and shared these sweet hair tutorials, and I figured I should make another attempt at curls that look natural. I used Ruby’s tutorial for the VO5 ‘Give Me Moisture’ look as inspiration and came up with something I’m definitely going to try again.
I’ve been having a bit of a nightmare with my hair lately. I’m growing it out after years of bouncing between pixie cuts and short bobs (although “grown-out pixie cuts” is probably more accurate). Since my hair has got longer I’ve been noticing more and more of it coming out when I wash my hair or even when I brush it. This led to a moment of crisis before Harriet reassured me that this happens to everyone with long hair! One good thing that came out of it is that I’ve introduced a few more hair care products into my routine. In this post I’ll share what those are and I figured while we’re here, why not show you a timeline of terrible things I’ve done with my hair over the past few years?
