‘Cause I’m a blonde

Yep, yet another post about my hair. I think about my hair a lot.

I went to my charming stylist Thomas’s apartment on the Lower East Side for highlights and a trim. He made my hair a little blonder than I expected, but I think I like it.

It looks much lighter in person, I think. And I’ll use undereye concealer in the future.

Happily, my allergies were kept at bay.

Have a great weekend, lovely friends.

How often do you wash your hair?

In a recent interview with People Magazine, Connie Britton said she only washes her hair about once a week.

I was shocked.

My skin and hair tend to be dry and yet I still wash my hair three to four times per week–more frequently if I go to the gym.

Unless I get a professional blowout, Day 1 tends to be my best hair day.

Day 2 requires decisions: do I go over it with a flat iron? Do I dampen my hair and wear it wavy, making the most of whatever happened during wild sleeping? Do re-blowdry the hair around my face?

Sometimes it’s just easier to wash and start over!

This week I made a conscious effort to see how long I could go without shampooing and conditioning my hair, washing it Tuesday morning. By Thursday, I was brushing my hair approximately hourly. I wanted so badly to hop in a shower and scrub my scalp and hair.

And truly, my hair looked like crap. By noon, it was in a sloppy ponytail.

In my next life

I don’t believe in reincarnation but if I did, I’d wish for…

Wash & go hair. Yes, I’m serious.

Oh, I’d hope for deeper things too. Like a long, healthy, happy life. To be in a position to help others. That sort of thing.

But I dream of not waking up to my Medusa look too.

Oh, I could just wash my hair and go. Let my curls air dry. Feel like Orphan Annie all day. No thanks. I have enough of that in the middle of August when New York is too hot and humid for everything.

Most days, I blow dry my curly hair to the point of being wavy or straight. For me, blown straight isn’t the same thing as having straight hair–it doesn’t move the same way.

For example, if I suddenly decided I’d rather part my hair down the middle instead of on one side, I couldn’t do that without water, a blow dryer and maybe a flatiron.

I know: some people have real problems. But tell me: what do you wish for?

Things I love about NYC: Ricky’s

When I lived in DC, I forgot about Ricky’s.

My bad. Ricky’s is awesome.

Picture a supermarket but filled only with beauty items. I inevitably go there for one thing and leave with, like, seven.

This time I stood in confused awe by the styling wands. Ricky’s had such a range of options that I realized I needed to do some research before committing.

Paralysis by analysis.
