Hair Crisis

I'm so over my hair style.  I have no time in the mornings to do what I need to do to make it look pretty, which is blow dry it completely straight and then flat iron it.  My hair used to be pretty and curly, and then I went and had kids, and my hormones aren't the same anymore; henceforth, no curls.  It was so easy to come out of the bathroom, spritz it with curly stuff, and GO.  Darnit, I miss those days!

So I find myself putting it in a wet ponytail most days.  I have learned to spiff it up with a little braid or blingy barette/ ponytail holder, but that's getting old too.  I'm even getting sick of coloring it to hide those few grays that plague me.  I'm just over it all...

I'm about to pull a Brit Brit move and shave it all off!  Ugh. 

Maybe I just need to find a cute style that makes me want to *fix* it every day.  What could that be?  Any suggestions?  Anyone??  Anyone???

Love, Mer

What about a mid-length bob that is stacked in the back or longer in front than the back so it's got a little style. Not original but it's easy and still allows you to put it up if you need to.

After becoming a mommy, who has time to fix their hair!? Or energy for that matter! Been in same dilemma so I'm growing mine out and trying to shower at night when I have time to dry it. Then I can just spruce it up in the morning.

Post a pic if you change it!

Thanks for the response, lady! Unfortunately, I already had that haircut and looked exactly like every other mom in my neighborhood. I've been growing my hair out for the last year, since that 'do, and now I'm stuck for ideas. I wish I could have my curls back! DO you think a loose perm is a terrible idea? Maybe I should try that Brazilian straightening thing! Love the blog, lady - keep up the fun postings! xo

Two words for you Mama. Brazilian Blowout! Takes me 8 minutes to blow out my hair and it straight, glossy and even swings. My hair is naturally SUPER curly but unpredictable. I've been doing the BB since August 2010 and I LOVE it. Let me know if you have any questions. xoxo
