The past week or two we have had so much humidity, rain, fog and cloudy skies that I’m starting to think my city was secretly transplanted to the Pacific Northwest when I wasn’t looking.
Now I really do like the rain and don’t mind cloudy days, but when we haven’t seen the sun for what feels like ages, the back yard looks like our own private lake, and the neighbors start to grumble about building an ark, then I begin to protest.
But on a more personal level, what’s really bugging me is my hair. It’s pretty straight and is normal to oily in most seasons, save for winter, but here lately I’ve been stuck in a frizzy state of mane. Not enough frizz to look cool and stylish and natural, but just enough to look ratty around the edges, verging on unkempt.
I tried spraying a bit of hair spray onto my hands and trying to calm it down, but that was no real help. And I would try an anti-frizz cream but fear it will weigh my hair down and make it oilier even faster.
I have been pulling out the hat trick, but hate to keep wearing them day in and day out lest my co-workers think I’m trying to hide something. Plus on the warmer days, it gets a little toasty because they are velvet or velour or wool and I would feel decidedly weird wearing my airy straw boaters in November. And I am sooo not chic enough to pull off a scarf wrapped around my head or one of those turban looks.
Do any of you ever have this problem? If so, any suggestions for fighting the frizzy hair blues? Maybe there’s a miracle product that calms the frizz without the side effects. Or something else that helps nip it in the bud. You all always seem to know the best tips and tricks for fixing beauty issues.
I am so envous of the women I’ve seen with big, beautiful, full, blown-out frizzy ‘dos — they look great, but my hair is way too thin and limp to ever pull that off.
