What Type of Crown? Not for Beauty Queens

My hair is screaming salon!!!

Looking back at my pictures last year, I just realized how healthy and fine my mane looked then. But during those time, I just find it so frizzy and not-so-stylish. The same feelings and reactions when I was in High School. My classmates used to tease me that my hair can launch and market shampoo and hair-care products. How flattering, I know, but at that time, I don a wash-and-wear hair, kept tidy with a headband. I never realized that I was wearing such a great "crown".

I wish I still have that mane. Ive been sporting a Japanese style hair cut and I am praying so hard to have my locks grow longer faster. Hair strands look irregular and it is so unmanageable - meaning, I cannot even put it as a bun. Wearing headband is not even an option. I have to suffer for months to wait for my hair to grow and reach the point where all strands length are even (imagine a girl wearing a hair extension? that's how my hair looks and amen to the texture). I remember that shampoo named Flex - it makes your hair grow faster. Im not sure if it is still available in the market?!.

I'm not the most daring woman when it comes to hairstyles. For some reason, I always go for the "safe" look. Bun. Headband. Ponytail. Half-pony. Chopsticks. Nothing fancy and loud. When everyone is parading their new hair color and highlights, I am that simple jane, safe and contented with my natural dark brown hair. It is only this year when my hair had a first taste of hair coloring (and it was without my knowledge! My hair stylish used a colored cellophane in my hair!).

It's been over a year when curls graced every fashion magazine's pages. I must admit it looks sexy and seductive. BUT, it should not be the type of a trying hard curls that looks like Barbie's. I will go for the curls which start at the middle with natural curls and waves. Just the perfect crown I would want to wear. And I wish I wouldn't feel sorry for wearing such a crown after a month.
