BlissDom and The Bad Hair Day

As you read this I will be:
A) on the road driving to San Antonio at the crack of dawn to fly to BlissDom (Holla at Mrs Flinger who is flying from Houston to Nashville with me!!!)
B) on a plane
C) going bananas over finally meeting all these amazing women

So my dad has been going through family pictures and scanning them onto his computer and every now and then he sends me pictures that make me smile, or tear up or even laugh out loud. The picture he sent me today, well…. ummm.

I really have no words for it:


There was a reason my gymnastics coach called me a Lion. There is no teasing there people, that was what my hair looked like. My mom would brush my hair and I would scream, many a comb lost their life in that mane.

My shopping tip for today: The Chi iron. The greatest thing to ever happen to my hair, because y’all… not that much has changed between that picture and today. I have the pink one and I love it, but my hairdresser she has the wet/dry Chi and it makes my hair look and feel like silk. I WANT. want. want. want.

People always ask if it’s worth the money. YES! It is worth the money, I went through about 4 of the ‘other’ brand irons from the stores and none even came close to the gloriousness of the Chi.

  2. Hey! I’m over from Marinka’s…. love the post! I am a devoted lover of the CHI flat-iron, too!!! A friend told me it was not to be viewed as a “luxury item” but as a “necessity” if I was going to start straightening my hair even semi-regularly. It is true– it is the best flat iron ever.

    Have fun at Blissdom!!

  3. I have naturally curly hair and have some AWFUL pictures from back in the day. My mom used to brush it all out and it was so pouffy!!!! It wasn’t until I got in my teens that I learned what to do with curls. But I’ve never gone the straightener route. I love curls!!

  4. My daughter has the craziest blond curls. I use a product on her called “morning miracle” which is just a spray mousse of sorts. My son will come down in the morning, look at his sister and announce “she needs her morning sprinkles!” We call it Albert Einstein hair. Unreal. Hard enough to control my own let alone be responsible for 2 of us!

  5. Lioness! Very good of your dad to remind you 😉
    I will google Chi products. They look miraculous. Maybe that’s where Marinka’s friend buys all of her step daughters uhm presents. (I am sure you read Marinkas post today, if not go read it so this makes sense.)

  13. Only my hairstylist can blow my hair straight and get it looking beautiful. When I do it is a big ball of frizz. I do have a flat iron but it just is not the same. You are hilarious!

  16. If I had had hair like that growing up I would have just lived with it. But then I’m lazy and I’m sure I could have worked it like a super stylish ah who am I kidding I would have been the laughing stock of my small town. Glad you found something that works for you

  17. Wow, I totally thought that you had just taken braids out or something. Thank goodness for great inventions like irons and chemicals to make us all look put together and beautiful.
