I have never been particularly in charge of my hair. It pretty much does what it wants and tells me to suck an egg, which I sadly have had to do UNTIL NOW.
Because of the wonder that is the boar’s bristle hair brush, my hair is now my bitch.
If you are a woman and you do not own a boar’s bristle hair brush, buy one this instant. I paid $9 for mine. They’re not so good for detangling (unless you buy the combo nylon / boar’s hair, which I have not tried), but they are killer for smoothing hair and de-frizzing hair during blow drying. Apparently the boar’s hair bristle redistributes your hair’s natural oils in order to keep everything even and glossy. Even if you are a naturally super dark brunette who has gone platinum (me), and thought there was no way your hair could ever look smooth, YES, even you can have glossy smooth hair.
In other hair news, I have been growing mine out. Which means it has been quite the disaster (besides all the silky glossiness, of course) with split ends, no shape, and that weird can’t-do-nothing length. But, in hopeful anticipation, I spent some of today browsing the interweb for inspiration for what to do with it when it is no longer weird.
