This demonstrates why I never use a blow dryer on my hair. That's just downright scary. All it does is add lots of . . . well, air . . . to my hair. Which is precisely what I do not need. However, I decided that if the professional stylist at the salon could straighten my hair and make it look nice, that perhaps I could, too. Don't ask why I would think that. The reality is that most of us can NEVER replicate the skills of a professional stylist - especially upon our own heads. But I am at times delusional and had to give it a try. So here we have the results of the first step - blow drying.

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.

You have such thick hair! I have very thin hair, so it looks like your 'after' photo once dried without doing anything to it. I often wish it was thicker. I guess the grass is always green... :)

OH I love my flat iron, but it's too much work! My hair's so thick I part it in 3's to straighten & it only lasts a day (psoriasis of the scalp)
