My Latin roots blessed me me with my thick, full hair but sometimes its seems more of a curse then a great DNA trait.
We all have a love/hate relationship with our hair. Women with curly hair want straight hair and vice-versa. Brunettes want to be blondes and blondes... well maybe this last example doesn't apply but you get the picture.
So, I'm off on a special mission to Koreatown. A woman in a small salon has a Japanese straightening solution that would make my locks cry for forgiveness and even make "the Diva" become humble. Okay, its my last resort.
My sister got her almost fro-like hair permanently transformed into a silky smoothness even a Swedish model would envy.
Before you ask, yes! I did try the Brazilian Blowout. I loved it the first time but it didn't quite work the last two times I tried it.
I had tried this Japanese straightener four years ago when I was a News field reporter covering fires, crime, and kittens stuck in trees. Meow.
It definitely keeped the frizzes at bay even during Misty weather.
But, after seeing a few of my "behind the head" camera shots and being completely terrified of how unkempt it looked back there, I decided to bring out the big guns.
After a four hour procedure that involved smelly chemicals, shampooing, blow drying and repeating three times, I had straight hair!
Yes! My Shrew had been tamed. "The Diva" had become humble.
I walked out of the salon and smiled at the nice Korean woman next to me. She had rollers in her hair and today, she was getting a Curly Perm!
