I'll be the first to admit that I'm not who you would call a "hair" person. Although I live in New York City, I get my hair done in my hometown, Chicago. I know that sounds crazy, but I head back to the Windy City several times a year. Last year I flew to Chicago 8 times!
Don't get me wrong, I have had my hair done here before, but the agony of sitting in a salon wasting away precious hours is not my idea of time well-spent. So in order to maintain my mane, I wash and condition it on my own in between touch-ups and trims.
As you can probably assume, I'm a simple BG when it comes to hair styles. I typically wear my hair like you see in my profile picture, a chignon or chic ponytail. When I'm feeling adventurous or desperately in need of a change, I'll opt for the undone 2-strand flat twist style. My husband thinks I'm boring in the hair department and he might be right, but one thing's for sure...there are just some styling products that I can't live without. For example, Soft-Sheen Carson's Optimum Dry Hair Healer is the absolute best!! It works wonders on my oftentimes lackluster locks.
