Hair disaster stories- we’ve all got one (or in my case several). I could share the horrid details of the time I went to the cheap-o place to get my hair cut and came out looking like a watered down poodle, but that could bring up a few tears. I could also share the time I decided that it would be a good idea to SHAVE off my “whispies” by my ears, you know, those ones that would be called sideburns if you were a guy, but then I’d have to admit it was only 3 years ago that I did that- oops! But in all seriousness, I wanted to share a recent and tragic hair disaster story with you. I have some pretty strong “curl genes” running through my locks and in Minnesota naturally curly hair and humid summer days don’t mix well. Enter- hair straightener products! Yup, I thought it would be nice to start the summer off with hair that was more manageable. I won’t go into details as to who makes the products I used to straighten my hair but I will tell you this…after carefully and tediously following the instructions on the box (which required some pretty high power lenses in my glasses) I was left with a rather LARGE head of straw! My hair was straight—er but it was left so dry and frazzled that I literally looked like I fried my hair with a blow torch. It was so straw-like that for the next 2 weeks I attempted to only wash my hair a handful of times because I didn’t want to have to face the damage I had done to my hair. It was SO bad, SO dry, SO disastrous!
What was a girl to do? I searched the web looking for quick-fix home remedies but nothing really seemed to work. A bottle of olive oil, mayonnaise and a half dozen eggs later I was left with the same straw-like hair that smelled like something out of a sandwich shop! Off to the store I went and searched for any product that said “moisture” in it. What did I end up finally grabbing? Pantene Pro-V Moisture Renewal! Let me tell you it truly felt amazing…I washed my hair with the Moisture Renewal Shampoo and soaked my hair in the Moisture Renewal Conditioner. After a thorough washing I hopped out of the shower and added their luxurious Moisture Renewal Silky Moisture Whip. If I only had one word to sum up what I felt it would be “RENEWED!” I felt like my hair was back to “normal” again and I am in love!
