There is some irony here. Why is it that when I am at the beach my hair gets kinkier, curlier and of course the frizz is at an all time high?
We sometimes spend a day at the beach and then go in to get ready to go out and eat. I use to spend time doing my hair before we went out for that “picture perfect” meal outside near the sand so we could see the moon and hear the surf.
