But then, we bring in the most important tool of all for flattening thick, wavy hair like mine - the flat iron. What a remarkable tool. And so much better than a real iron - like the kind one uses for clothes. At least that's what my mom said they used to use. I think I like this one better. And what do you know? I actually was able to do this. And it did NOT take me an hour and a half, like I thought it might.
So I've now had straight hair twice in one week. Of course, that may morph into twice in one year (or longer). Because the bottom line is that I really don't care to spend so much time on my hair. So I took a bunch of pix, posted them on my blog, and can look back fondly at the time I pulled off a professional stylist stunt.
