My hair is a pain. I mean, it gets all thick and I decided to start dying it again (big FAT mistake) and I don't like products but yet I seem to need some... maybe because of my hard water. Whatever the reason, I've just grown accustomed to despising my hair. So, I was not very optimistic when I decided to have my hair "done" by Shana at Harlow Salon on Music Row, in "the Big City" of Nashville. But I went anyway. Because what did I have to lose? A bandana and some pitiful little pony tails (see photo in last post). I set up an appointment to see Shana last week on Friday, the same day I was already going to be in Nashville for my midwife appointment. I was lucky that I it worked out for us! I don't typically have my hair cut in a fancy salon. No, I go to Supercuts. But let's just say that this work was being done "pro bono" and I'm ever so grateful. So, she washes my hair using all kinds of amazing smelling products. She listens to what I have to say about my hair and what I want/need done. Then she just does it. At no point do I have to tell her to thin it out some more. Or correct her because she's not cutting it the way that I like. No, she just automatically does it. She cuts it exactly the way I described (leave the length, thin it WAY out, choppy, funky, and easy). Then she styles it. And that is when I notice how soft my hair has suddenly become. I don't know what kinds of products this woman used on my hair but all I can say is amazing!!! My hair had not felt that smooth and soft since I was... well, probably a toddler. The verdict? Well, once we are able to afford to eat and buy prenatal vitamins comfortably, I'll be splurging occasionally on a trip to see my friend, the magician, Shana at Harlow. And, for the record, I washed and fixed my hair myself. And it still looks decent! Okay, it actually looks almost the same! So, that easy (as in so easy a total dork who doesn't even own mascara could do it) thing? She totally knew what she was doing!
