My hair is bananas…and not in a good way. I have incredibly thick curly hair—the kind stylists take one look at and declare, “This is going to cost extra.” Not only is it embarrassing to have a person on either side of my head when I get a blowout at a salon, it is difficult to manage on my own. I have resisted getting my hair relaxed (my best friend did it and her hair became crimpy and limp) and can’t bring myself to damage it with Japanese straightening. I’m eyeing the new Keratin hair treatments, which look promising on the lack-of-damage front, but are exorbitantly expensive ($600 a pop!) While I weigh my salon options, I’ve mastered the art of at-home styling for curly hair. (Although, admittedly I did have a rough patch in kindergarten when my mom would brush out my curls and send me to school with a power-rangers lunchbox and a fro.)
