I like being able to do different things with my hair. But as with all things femme, I’ve got a learning curve ahead of me.

The last two days, I’ve been straightening my hair, slowly working the temperature up and somehow managing to not burn myself. I like how it looks. But I also like how the wave machine I have makes it look as well. My biggest enemy right now is the tendency towards frizzy.

There are products for everything, of course, and I still have to get my hair actually cut and styled at some point, but right now I at least feel like I have more control over my appearance. Which is nice.
