Fancy Bitch

My friend Erin from Fancy Bitch sent me a great book called Curly Girl.

As a woman who has struggled her entire life to tame her curls, it's just been in the last couple of years that I finally embraced my curls as they are and let them be as wild and crazy as they want to be.

The book is a really fun read and has a "free your hair, and the rest will follow" manifesto. I read it front to back in about 45 minutes and it was a treat to read and I learned a few things as well.

Congrats to Tiffany for winning the book!!
To everyone else... ya snooze... ya lose! :)

Curly-haired girls unite! I remember straightening mine like nobody's business when I was younger, because along with the "thin is in" ideals, so was pencil-straight hair. My hair just never wanted to swing that way! Now I have fun with it, and it really makes me feel more vibrant to let my curls be their bouncy selves. Glad you're liking your's as well!

As someone who has had poker straight hair her whole life, I can tell you - I envy curly girls (and boys). I used to spend countless hours at the hairdresser getting curls put in my hair, and then countless hours at home curling some more. I finally gave up. If I had curly hair, I'd let it go crazy! The wilder, the better I say!

Tee hee. My husband worked on that book. And yup, I too have curl-envy.

I have this book too and I love it! It's nice to have curl power! After growing up hearing "you're so lucky to have curly hair" now I can finally agree with people. I was a little weirded out to wash my hair using only conditioner, but it is so much healthier and more manageable, this woman knows her stuff!

Sarah, weird question, but do you really have grey hair?

Sarah's Blog said...

Yes. I really have grey hair.

I am 38. Most woman my age have grey hair... they just dye it. :)

NO, I love it!!!! :)

I thought that you dyed it grey. LOL.

I really think that grey is beautiful. I always have. Ask my friends.

I'm the same age and I do have grey hair too... or I would if I didn't dye it. I like it coloured though. It is mousy when it is grey and makes me look old. Yours just looks cool.

I also have curly hair and I noticed this book at the library for the Community College here in town. I'll have to pick it up and read it now. :)

I love that book! I have a head full of tight coils. My daughter has a looser curl.
