My Hair Story – Donating to Locks of Love

My Hair Story – Donating to Locks of Love

Last week I did something I’ve been wanting to do for years, but could never muster up enough courage.  I donated 10 inches of my hair to Locks of Love.

I’m almost embarrassed to talk about the emotional attachment I’ve developed to my hair. It serves as my personal security blanket.  Whether I am feeling insecure about my bad skin or out-of-shape body, I can always rely on the presence of my long flowy locks of blonde hair. For some, hair is just an inanimate object and changing it’s color or cutting it off is no big deal. But for many others, our hair is a distinct identifier of who we are. I am Chelsey – that girl with the long, blonde hair. That is who I’ve been since childhood, throughout my adolescence and who I remained as an adult.

Rock Your Hair by Michael O’Rourke

I am always intrigued by hair products that claim to give me massive volume and body because my natural hair is super fine, straight and limp. And my hair shafts are very smooth because I’ve never used hair dye and I rarely use hot tools – which is great for softness but not great for volume (rougher hair cuticles are much easier to style and gain lift from). I tried out some of the staple products from the ROCK YOUR HAIR line to see how they worked on my lackluster tresses.

Hair Trends: My Braid Obsession

Hair Trends: My Braid Obsession

I’ve been uncharacteristically playful and braid-happy with my hair lately. Good thing braids are super trendy right now! I’ve been fortunate enough to have very tame hair. It’s always been super low maintenance, wash & go, straight and boring. So that is typically how I would wear it: straight and boring! Nothing wrong with that, of course. But considering I’ve had PRETTY MUCH the same hairstyle since birth, it’s been a nice change learning different ways to style my flowing mane by using braids!

Review: Conair You Reel 1875 Watt Tourmaline Ceramic 2-in-1 Styler

One of my biggest irritations when I’m doing my hair is CORDS. They cause me to knock over the cans of product sitting on the counter, they get tangled up underneath my sink, and they basically drive me crazy. Needless to say, when I spotted this hair dryer that includes a built-in cord keeper, I was immediately intrigued.

Review: HSI 1″ Flat Iron Hair Straightener

I have been on the hunt for an amazing flat iron for months. I think I probably spent a good 5 or 6 hours scouring the interwebz for reviews and what not. One brand that kept turning up in my search results was HSI. They have the #1 rated flat iron sold on Amazon. That is seriously something to boast about because Amazon reviewers don’t sugarcoat ish.

Review: Shielo Volumizing Hair Care

My Healthy Hair Tips

My HairThroughout my life, I’ve always gotten comments or questions about my hair. “How do you keep your hair so long and healthy?” or “It must be hard taking care of all that hair!”

Honestly, my hair has ALWAYS been long (ever since I can remember) so I am just genetically programmed to take care of it properly. Well, I’m assuming what I do is “proper” considering it stays in pretty good health all year round :)
