Sweet Shot Tuesday: Hair Product

The life of a short haired girl, hair products...

Taken with my iPhone4 and edited/posted with the Instagram app.

Some people think that it is much easier to have short hair.  You just wash and go, right?  I actually spend more time on my short hair than I did with my long hair.  I used to live with an eternal ponytail.  I got tired of doing nothing with my hair and decided to cut it short.

My hair is extremely thick and curly naturally.  You probably can’t tell, because I maintain it frequently.  I have to have my hair cut and razored every few weeks to thin it out.  If I don’t, I start looking like a Q-Tip.  Let’s just say that my hair is looking rather fluffy right now.  To bring out the texture in my hair, I use several hair products.  I start by combing out my hair and add in some texturizer, water wax, or gel.  I prefer the thick creamy products.  I have to be careful to not use too much product because my hair tends to look greasy. I may use some silicone gel after that for shine, and finish it off with hair spray.  So much for easy hair styling.

I ran out of her goop the entire day, and I panicked.  I knew that I would not be able to do my hair without some kind of texturizing product.  My usual Transforming Paste from Aquage is pretty hard to find.  I have substituted it with Bed Head’s Manipulator for the past two months.  The Manipulator, pictured above it thick and gooey.

I took the photo on Monday morning, when I was trying to do my hair in a hurry.  I may have gotten the texturizer all over everything because it is very sticky.

I’m posting this over at Sweet Shot Tuesday on My3Boybarians. Have you taken a sweet shot? Whether it be from your camera or your cellphone, why not do a post and link up!

I am with you on the short hair. I have had short hair on and off for the past 15 years and short hair always costs more and takes more work. I love how it always looks so neat and tidy, but hate how much work it takes. Love the picture.

I have very long hair, which is always in a ponytail. I hate spending time on my hair (and really don't have much talent for it either) so short is not really an option for me.

I agree with this whole-heartedly, and I don't even have hair product. For years I had long hair and I kept it tied up in a knot all the time. I decided I should "grow up" so I chopped it off, donated my ponytail, and forced myself to fix my hair. Now? Because I'm too lazy? I'm growing it out until it's long enough to tie back.

i love instagram. and for the record..NO it is not easier to have short hair. long and short hair take some work. i've had both and i am still struggling with which i like better. i still don't know.
