I'm getting ready for my day and something HAS to be done about my hair. I went to bed with it wet, and it dried into crazy waves. I oil the ends and spray heat protectant liberally through the length. I blowdry my long blonde hair before breaking out my straightener. I slide the hot plates through my hair until it is gleaming and set into a pretty, natural mermaid style. It takes a long time with such thick, long hair.
