Friend Friday: Hair care

This week Katy asked some questions about hair care. I wonder how this will go since I always think I should do more and I don't do anything.

1. How often do you get your hair cut?
Between every few months and once a year.

2. Do you go to the same stylist each time, try someone new, go to the cheap hair cutting chains or live it up in a salon?
I have probably gone to a professional 6 or 8 times in my life.  I have my mom or husband cut the bottom and then I add the layers.  Before that my mom cut it and I didn't have layers.

3. Do you color your hair? How often? What’s your natural color?
I do not color my hair and therefore my natural color is brown.   I did highlight my hair 3 times in my life. I did like it the first time.  I hated it when it grew out. But then once it grows out you get more highlighting but then after a few inches you just have too much light hair.

4. The one thing you always do to keep your hair looking great is:
Nothing. It isn't ever great and I don't do anything to it.  I am always told it is great when I go to the hairstylist (you know those 6 times) and they say it is because I don't damage it with a curling iron, hair dryer, or dyes.

5. What hair trend do you love and wish you could rock?
I have no idea. what hair trends are.  I do wish my hair was curly with loose curls not the tight spiral curls. But then when it grows out just slightly and the super straight natural hair looks even worse with the curls of a perm.  I felt like I could do so much more with my hair when it was permed, but that I was also forced to shower in the morning.  I liked a perm because I could curl my hair with whatever curling iron size and it would hold unless it was humid. If it was humid, it frizzed up and sucked.  Oh the pros and cons.   Check this summary page that just shows icons to see randomly how my hair has looked at various points in my life.

I used to curl my hair more but now that I workout right after work I figure it isn't worth the 3 minutes it takes to curl the ends under so I don't do anything. I only curl it on special occasions now.
May 2005 = day of my last perm
November 2005 = curled with a curling iron (permed hair)

You've all seen recent pictures of me but scroll through my calendar site to see how my hair has evolved.

How about you? Tell me a little about your hair care.


  1. You have gorgeous hair! I love when I go to a hair salon and they're amazed that I've never colored it "It looks so healthy" haha I'm like that's why I don't dye it!

  2. Mike, are you saying I look old now?

  3. not as old as timmy, but older than you did
