Mermaid CurlsTuesday, June 07, 2011
Yep, it's my third mermaid post in under a week and methinks any readers I have left aren't too excited about this.....sorry! It's a passing obsession, I promise!
Since deciding to stop setting my hair for daily wear, I haven't really posted much. I've been feeling a bit weird about posting, like I just can't cut it if I'm not styled in 100% vintage (or near to it), like I'm letting folks down. I've also been pondering where this blog is headed and whether or not to keep at it- I suppose I've been having some sort of an identity crisis.....all over some hair! Anyhow, I guess I'll keep at it for now, after all- this blog was never for anyone but me---- readers are just a wonderful perk!!
I now return you to your regularly scheduled post.....

I'm still in pursuit of the "perfect" mermaid curl, but I think I'm getting somewhere.
My routine is simple: shower, apply product, let hair dry (usually over night), use curling iron to add a few "mermaid" curls. Unlike the tutorial says, I do not brush my hair out, in fact I haven't used a brush on my hair in months- it's bad for curly hair so I've discovered! I like to rely more on my natural texture than the tutorial allows, mostly because I have no desire to spend so much time with a curling iron in my hand- I might as well set at that point! Plus, the more natural I allow my hair to be the less disappointed I am when the humidity gets at it.
