Dilemma 1: I made the decision to grow my hair long one more time in my 30s then cut it short forever. The thing is, I like it short. I love it low maintenance.
Long long long term readers might remember the last time I decided to grow out my hair WHILE I WAS PREGNANT. Dumb mistake. I had no idea how much I would be vomiting. I happily chopped it all off a few weeks later. Then I decided to grow it out again a couple of years later .... and that led to THE MULLET.
I'm just at the point where it is about to get ugly for a few months so I need you, objective readers, to tell me what to do. Grow it out or rock the short hair? (I'm thinking short.)
Dilemma 2: I need my curly girls on this one. When I grew up in the 80s, there were no hair products for white curly girls. NONE. I shopped in the black hair section and tried every product. Then someone invented mousse and it saved my life. I still check out the black hair section for new products all.the.time.
In the last 20 years, I have spent approximately $572,283 trying to find the perfect hair product combination for curly thick white girl hair. Name it, I've tried it. I recently found a new hair product that says on the bottle "FOR WHITE GIRLS TOO!" I tried it and WOW. My hair is soft. There is no frizz. The curls are perfect.
Problem? It smells like gheri curl. (Which I have used, and it made my hair so soft and so frizz free.) (If you have ever used gheri curl you know the smell.)
For reals. DO I USE IT????? Look at how shiny and soft and frizz free my curls look. But eau de gheri curl??
Thoughts? (Alex took this picture of me.)
