I have naturally curly hair, and while some women respond quite bitterly when they learn this I am here to go on record as saying this, it's not all it's cracked up to be. Some women have beautiful natural curls. They wake up in the morning, wash their hair, run a pick through it and begin their day with beautiful curls without any work at all. Kinda like this chick over here. We don't like her.
Then there are the naturally curly hair people like me. While this is not an actual picture of me, the hair is a close relative. The only time my hair has had pretty curls is when my stylist was using me as a guinea pig and permed it. How wrong is that???? I have naturally curly hair, I am never suppose to need a perm. EVER. *sigh* The sad truth of it is, not all naturally curly hair is pretty. It's unfortunate and it sucks for those of us who have to live with it.
SO - in order to combat this unruly mass on top of my head I spend my morning straightening my hair. First with the blow dryer and then with a curling iron. I used to use a flat iron, but then it just laid there, in my face, doing nothing at all, with no semblance of style what so ever. So I'm back to using the old fashioned curling iron, not at all like I used to. (Remember the early 90's?)
To get to the point of my rant, this morning I was curling my hair with that stupid curling iron and I burned my forehead. Yes, you heard me correctly. In my vain attempt to be beautiful I burned my damn forehead. Now I have a big red burn mark above my right eyebrow. *sigh* It sucks to be a girl sometimes.
So in case any of you are just as lame with a curling iron, flat iron, etc. here is what WEBmd says to do when you scorch yourself:
By the way, TGIF everybody and happy reading.
