If your frizzy hair experience has been anything like mine, your life changed when you acquired (or invested in) a legit hair straightener. But, it also got a little more boring. Impromptu beach trip? Nah, I just straightened my hair.
I’m not here to tell you to go natural because for me, “going natural” means using a very specific sequence of four products and living with a thin film of goo on my hands. Sure, if you enjoy an arm-tiring routine of straightening your hair and then curling it, go for it. Personally, my life has always benefited from the times I said "screw it," put it in a bun, and did something more meaningful with my time — and I think we could all use a bit more confidence in the hair department.
