I miss being a blonde. My shade of brown takes about 7 hours to get to white blonde (the only blonde worth having), and I have exactly two years before I have to get a pixie cut. Veronica fares much better as a redhead. And we both look great in Cavalli. 2012, the heyday of Cavalli, yes? And also, those stick straight blow outs. I think I knew how to do it then, we all did. Did we collectively lose that technology or it just me how can’t learn it again?
My hair is wavy to curly and sometimes I wear it wavy and sometimes I wear it curly and sometime I wear it straight. But ALL the times I want my ends to be STICK STICK STICK straight. Super straight. It girl in the early aughts straight. Kim K now straight. BUT HOW? Inevitably, the ends always curl in. How do you make it stop? HOOOWWWWW?!
First, I straighten it. Usually I put a spray on when it dries. Then I try to keep it straight.
Things I’ve tried:
Straightening it for an extra long time. (IE keeping the straightener on the ends forever.)
Bending it a bit in the opposite direction so that if it curls, it ends up straight.
Various pomades. (Usually ends up weird textually, like more shiny or piecey then the regular hair.)
All the dry shampoos and texture sprays. (These are good for the bulk of the hair, but do not keep the ends from curling.)
I’ve started watching youtube videos where teens with gorgeous piles of hair show you how to do it but I’ve only got like a dozen strands of hair and they take about 30 minutes just to straighten their millions of hairs, so I’ve never gotten to the end where they might tell me how.
Not one of these works for any longer then it takes me leave the house. TELL ME. Do you straighten you hair? Do your ends stay straight? What do you put on it/in it? What are the tricks? HALP ME.
