Petit Bateau’s Summer 2010 collection looks beautiful and playful. And I only think the best of it. But I allocated myself this occasion, using the Petit Bateau pretext and actually talk about my bad hair day/month.
What do you do with your bad hair days? I typically disguise that with a headband, a scarf, bobby pins and hope it’ll go away the next day. (the story continues right after the jump with more images!)
But what if it doesn’t? Then what? Most of the days, my hair looks just like this model’s hair. When I look at her, I even envy myself! only now, my hair just ain’t like that anymore! And there’s worse: I only use professional hair care products. It’s a habit I picked up by going once a year to visit my hairstylist. Kerastase, Tigi that’s what you find in my beauty case. But now my hair doesn’t want to know about those hyper expensive, hyper hype products anymore. It’s dry and it’s curling on itself like suffering from some virtual tummy ache! Imagine that, my hair has indigestion! I tried “natural” remedies. Like beer and honey? And yolks? Nope. They don’t speak my hair’s language either!
My Ever-So-Adored Husband is completely laid back about this hair-situation. He said, much to my amazement, that twice a year I have these bad hair & nails weeks I turn to nuclear catastrophes and after a while it all goes back to normal. And I stop crying my hair out. Do you have bad hair seasons? Bad nails weeks? What do you do? I even thought about wearing cartoonish (you know, the ones for kids?) band aids on my fingertips, then I changed my mind cause my kids would want to wear them too and we’d turn into a fingertips band aid family. I even thought about wearing some white tape like Michael Jackson’s? Then it crossed my mind that I’ve got to learn the moonwalk to make a credible MJ fan to everyone who might wonder why I’m wearing those white bands on my fingertips.
I’ll stop here, take a fresh breath looking at these lovely pictures from the Petit Bateau Spring Summer 2010 lookbook and dream about those summer days when my hair (and my nails) were impeccably frizzy and shiny! How do you fix your bad – something days? (photos via)
