Braids

I have been wearing my hair in braids a lot recently. This is not an attempt to hold on to my lost youth (although I do think they make me look younger), but rather a chance at having a hair "style" that doesn't make me look crazy. See, I have a couple of hair problems. One is called fizz. It's different than frizz. Fizz is little baby hairs right around the hairline at my forehead, particularly on the right side. When I wear my hair in a ponytail or bun, the fizz escapes, no matter if I use gel, mousse, hairspray or a combination of the three. In fact, if I use too much product, the fizz bands together into a fizz clump, which is even worse than the fizzy fizz. My other hair problem is called can't-be-bothered. It's been established that I don't shower every day, and I need a hair style that lets me carry on my lazy ways - but as I said, fizz prevents me from sporting a cute bun. So, braids it has been for the past few weeks, and I think they look good. Sometimes I do a center part, and sometimes a side part. I do have to keep a close eye on my ponytail-holder supply, but I'm in good shape right now.

And that's my story about braids.

Dude! I wish my hair were long enough for braids! I am in a similar hair place right now, and it's too short for any quick fix kind of Do. I'm going crazy. Rock the braids, Heidi, no shame!!!!

I am not afraid to say I think the braids are h-o-t.

But you are afraid to use your name?

I have the fizz too. Mine curl. You'd think that would be cute, but it just looks dumb to me.

I feel your pain and I need to try the braids.

I recently got my baby fine hair layered ... I can't wear braids anymore! But I have the fzzy stuff growing in fast and furious -- more after each baby!
