It takes a brave woman to discuss their horse hair. I have got thee coarsest hair on the planet. I didn't used to-- it's due to a 2nd grade 80's perm (gotta love the 80's perm) gone wrong. It made my soft, silky hair fall out, and my new coarse, yet stronger, hair grow in. I've tried just about everything to have the pantene hair: pantene itself, leave-in conditioners, straighteners, etc. No luck, sista.
Well then I got a hair straightener that has ceramic plates in it and heats up close to boiling lava hot, and presto! Here's the before, one side done, and the after: HUGE difference, eh? If you're thinking to yourself: "oh she just ratted it or poofed it out to make a point", whe-hell, you just keep on thinking that 'cause then you won't know how bad it really is. My poor boys have the same coarse hair as me. Lucky them! Can one of my children please get some of Jeff's soft, dark hair?
And if you're also thinking "Duh. She didn't know you have to get ceramic plates and a really hot straightener?" well then shame on you for not telling me sooner, and a curse on your hair. ;)
