I had my dad go out and get a newspaper with all the Black Friday ads in it on Thursday evening. I was determined to find SOMETHING to go out and get. It didn't happen. There was NOTHING we needed or really wanted that badly. I was a bit saddened by this cause I love going out and feeling the energy, but I didn't want to go out "just because." So we didn't. :(
Instead, we sat at my dad's house, hung out, and did a lot of nothing. It was great. (Oh, we did end up at Ross and the grocery store at some point. I got Elisabeth a couple really cute outfits and a Christmas dress that I love!)
But back to days of Thankfulness. For my 25th thing, I am thankful for hair care products. I contemplate what a disaster my hair would be without something to tame it. My hair has a very good tendency to break off and frizz like mad. I am constantly on a search for something that works and makes my hair look good. So chances are, if you go...whoa..her hair is a disaster, it means whatever I'm using just isn't working and I'm in the process of finding something else.
But for now, this is what I do:
Shampoo with lovely shampoo, and hydrating conditioner. I then use a leave-in conditioner and work in my gel. Surprisingly, I've had some decent success with the cheaper brands of gel, and it's nice because I don't have to pay a lot to try them out.
About once a week, I use a clarifying shampoo and k-pak to re-hydrate my hair that's been stripped. (The clarifying is vital since I put so much gunk in my hair on a daily basis). Then I do the same leave-in and gel afterward.
I love my hair. I wish it was just a little stronger so it could handle the beating it goes through. But in the same breath, I can't imagine what it would do if I DIDN'T tame it daily.
Love these guys!
