Good Hair day..

I haven't washed my hair since last Wednesday, but i am having the best hair day ever! My secret.. dirty hair!

Day Five of wet Pin Curl Set
Firstly, i did a rough wet pin curl set after i washed it on Wednesday.  My hair wasn't soaking wet, but damp.  I did it without a mirror, whilst watching TV.  I didn't think i would work so i didn't put any setting lotion in it.  But to my surprise it did! Here it it the next morning after i took out all the bobby pins and brushed it out.

Day one, wet pin curl set
I sprayed it with hair spray and took the dog for a walk.  It was such a windy day, but my curls survived!

Day one, wet pin curl set, after a windy walk
That night i re-pinned my curls, a quick squirt of setting lotion mixed with water.
Day two of wet pin curl set
In the evening, i re-pinned them again, squirt of setting lotion and the hair net went on.

Day three of wet pin curl set
Day three was a wet and windy miserable day.  I spent the day going round vintage shops with Rose Desire, my Burly friend.  Then we went for lunch.  Hair, sort of lasted the day, but looked a bit wind swept and frizzy.

Day Four
This might explain why my hair looks so good today.  On Sunday, day four, i kept my hair in pin curls and the hair net all day.  I had a steamy hot bath, which also might have added to my curls staying power.

Day five, best hair EVER

Day five, best day ever
With the help of my bottled buddies, dry shampoo, styling powder and hair spray.  I have had the best hair day ever!  Its a bugger that its a Monday and the only thing i did today was go into town, and havent had a chance to show it off to anyone who really appreciates vintage hair! Oh well i will learn for next time.... if i want good hair on a Saturday night, plan it five days in advance!

Here are the products i used;

Schwarzkopf, Got 2b, 2 sexy
