If you follow (or stalk) my inundated Twitter feed (sorry for tweeting so much – not a fan? Mute me.), you’ll know that I discovered how to curl my approximately 4cm long (grown a WHOPPING two since I tweeted) hair follicles using a GHD!
I’m rubbish at anything to do with hair styling… This sort of explains the ‘homeless head of hair look’ (6 and a half days per week) that I rock so well…
So, anyway – as if by magic I turned on my GHD and the rest is ‘kinky’ (the hair type) history!
I remember the moment I discovered this talent well… There I was with my 7 tonne knee – which swelled up like Roald Dahl’s GIANT peach – elevated, wanting something to do… I turned the straighteners on and went at it with my hair (after applying heat-protection spray, #PutSomethingOnTheTopOfIt as the Vidal Sassoon version of Jezza would say).
To be honest, there’s no ‘hocus pocus’ behind it… It’s just literally wrapping my (what seems like) couple of strands around the hot iron and hoping for the best… Upon release-tion, I was left with somewhat curlier hair.
Look, I forgot to mention that my hair is naturally curly, but it’s ‘slept in’ curls. You know when you sleep oddly and wake up with crinkles? Yeah, that. #SexyAF. Marry me, now. Or not. It’s up to you…
Back to my hair, I loved using the iron to curl my hair with. It’s so much easier than a ting-tong for me tbh. Why? Probably because I honestly thought I was ‘clinically’ double jointed… No, seriously! What I mean is, like it’d never show up in tests but I also can’t hold anothing without looking weird (my opinion, everyone else’s shabillot)… Jheeze, I’m sounding more attractive by the second, aren’t I?!
I’m still unsure how 26 years (in Autumn) later, I’ve yet to be snapped up by an ALLIGATOR or a CROC! Let’s not tempt fate though, before I end up in a Steve Irwin (God rest his soul) situ…
Lord only knows how this post has gone from hair styling to a discussion about amphibians, but it is what is (and it is what it ain’t).
P.S. if you thought I was going to give you a walkthrough of how to curl your hair using a GHD, alI can say is: soz! I don’t have your hair length… I’ve only been awarded my own. Therefore, I can’t tell you how easy it is going to be for you.
Then again, you most probably already know, right? This might be old news… I’m a late developer (in everything). So, you’ve probably just come here to read me taking the piss out of myself. Which, tbh – I don’t blame you. <3
What hair straightener do I use? GHD V Gold Marine Allure, it’s so ALLURING that bae still doesn’t want to know.
