Totally useless blog

Okay, so as some of you might know, I've been trying to grow my hair out. I even bought a special brush for this endeavor. However in the process, my hair looks like crap! I've been thinking about perming it so it's "something" and the Gucci lady told me that its the best thing to do. I am thinking that I might agree with her but I don't have the guts to do this. Plus I'd hate to admit that I listened to a Gucci lady (make up stylist btw). I'd rather say someone reading my blog told me to do it. Advice anyone?

You can DO IT!!! (vote for pedro)

Seriously, I think you should!

Oh, I want the stuff that makes my eyelashes grow. What's it called so I can order it. Listen to the two of us. All about hair growth.

So it's okay to do it? I can say my friend all carbon with a quarter sized hole in her head told me to do it? can you give me some hair examples of what i should do? how curly? also i should mentioned i permed my hair once before and maria told me years later that i am forbidden to perm it again because, well, because i looked retarded.

You want Talika's lipocils (talika is the brand name and yes, you use it for your eyes, not lips). I suggest using twice daily for the first week even though it might sting and cause temporary blindness. then go to once a day. my eye lashes are INSANE from using this...i really look crazy now when i use two coats of mascara because it looks like i'm wearing fake eyelashes. talika also makes something similiar for your brows but i'm not sure what it's called. rumor has it you can use it for your lashes and get even better results but it stings more. ha!

I wish you were closer to NYC. Then I'd send you to my guy, who manages to make anyone's hair look amazing. (Even the bald guy that shaves his head.)

In lieu of that, however, I think you have to figure out what kind of look you want to go for and how well your hair takes to curls. If it helps, my hair is really fine and straight and doesn't take to perms well, so my guy does a spiral perm and it comes out looking relaxed, like a wave (you saw what it looks like in Hawaii).

I wish i was in nYC too. So far 3 people are against the perm. you're the only one for it. waiting on danu and maria to repsond (eventhough mia will say no again, its worth a shot).

Franu! I agree with all carbon..DO IT! I admit i know nothing about perms...but i love curly hair!! Besides, you can always cut it short again if you don't like it...i liked it when you had your hair short. Frannie, its about time you for another hair story. I would love to curl my hair too...add some body to my very thin hair...but i am afraid the perm will cause the few strands i have to fall out. Hey do you think that eyelash stuff would work on my hair? I have never heard of anything that really works to thinken hair. I tried the nixon stuff for a year...but no good. Ummm yeah so perm it franu! Who is gonna do it for you?

Danu,

Try rosemary shampoo. It's supposed to promote hair growth. I've used it before, although I couldn't tell if my hair was growing or not. I just liked the smell.

danu said...

really?! Just any rosemary shampoo, or a specific brand? I will try to hunt some down tomorrow. Maybe rosemary with one of those "special" comes franu mentioned. Thanks for the tip, all carbon!!!

No specific brand. I think I used the whole foods generic brand. Try it for a month and tell me what you think. :-)
