Sacrifice

I have always know that being a parent comes with inherent sacrifices.

I didn't know this was one of them.



Since K left for school with our 1 good flat iron, my hair has looked like this.
I feel like my un-done tresses could be used by Larainy Days if she did a "Help This Hair!" post.

I love how my hair looks after a great cut and blow dry
so

I tried this...


Apparently, I have NO SKILLS.
I won't even post the picture.

I was ecstatic when I saw this beauty on sale at Marshalls.
And it's pink, bonus!

I washed and dried and creamy-conditioned.
I even flat-iron-heat-protection treated.

Ta-da!!!



Um, yeah...

That baby is going straight back to Marshalls.
Dang!

And I am going to have to splurge for an actual usable of a flat-iron.

OK Jen...that is sad :( I can't believe our little purchase was such a flop! Try going to Sally's and buying a GVP (generic value product) flat iron. I have had good success with that brand--my hair stylist (doesn't that make me sound fancy) recommended it.

Wish I would have known and I would have picked up a Chi for you at Snowflakes sweet corn festival.

ya unfortunately, you cant go cheap on a flat iron! especially with your luscious hair :) if you would like a good one i can ask Deena to pick you up one next time she goes to the beauty supply and she can just bring it to epic for you to pick up.

I don't actually flat iron my hair, but I've been told that the CHI is the very best... no generics. Good luck justifying THAT $120 purchase!! Yep, I have read Mockingjay. Can't say I LOVED it. I liked it a lot but the first one was such a novel concept that the other 2 fell a bit flat for me. Have you read The Maze Runner? Read the first one and #2 comes out in october. SUPER good. :)

Go to Sally's I got mine there for $15.00 it's the same one the Koe uses so it is good.

I actually had this discussion with my VTers this morning. I will NEVER have to use a straightener. And I envy anyone who has to.
And thanks for your phone message of encouragement. This is a scary job!

Do they really sell flat irons at the Sweet Corn Festival? Wow, Snowflake/Taylor has really arrived. Sorry I can't recommend a flat iron. I iron my hair about as often as I iron Mark's shirts.
