Full disclosure: this is 8 weeks post cut, so for me, about 1.5" longer than the first cut. I'm going to keep growing it for a while.
I have a new holy grail-level product: Bumble & bumble Invisible Oil Primer. Works no matter what I'm going to do with my hair.
Most days, I air dry it and wear it naturally wavy.
Other days, I blow it out and straighten it. Straightening it is such a chore, not because it's particularly hard but because at the age of 38, I have become lazy. In most cases I just want to leave the house quickly.
But if I'm being completely honest, there has always been a struggle in my head between bedhead and straight, Kelly Taylor 90210 hair.
