Paula Poundstone. She’s a Curly Girl.

September 2, 2007 at 1:53 pm Leave a comment

One of my all time favorite comediennes that is frequently a guest on NPR’s “Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me” is the darling Ms. Paula Poundstone. Her new book, “There is Nothing in this Book I Meant to Say,” is absolutely hysterical and if you don’t have time to read it, check out her audio CD book.

This really is leading somewhere, I promise.

Paula is a beautiful woman, so this is meant in no way to insult her looks. I want to focus on her hair for a moment. She seems to have very thick, coarse hair that probably gets very frizzy in humid conditions. I will assume it is also dry/damaged and difficult to work with. She will have to get back to me on this one (LOL!), but the reason I am commenting on this is simply:

How many of us out there have beat the snot out of our hair in the quest for beauty?

How many of us fight against what Mother Nature gave us? We say to ourselves, “If only it were straighter, thicker, less frizzy. If only there were some miracle product out there to make my hair behave!”

Is there a theme I keep mentioning in this blog? By gum, yes!

Apparently we all need some type of miracle, particularly when it comes to our hair.

At some future time I will get into my traumatic personal hair history, but for now, let’s talk about what we have tried, what we should avoid, and see what we find!

*If your hair sounds like Paula’s (and mine, I might add), you may be interested in a couple of books: “Curly Girl,” by Lorraine Massey and “Curl Talk” by Ouidad (the famous stylist with one name from NYC). What you might find is that you are approaching your hair entirely wrong and doing a lot of damage in the mean time. That really stinks doesn’t it?

**I also highly recommend this web site for great information about learning the “how to‘s” with curly hair: http://www.naturallycurly.com/
