Beauty Talk | Hair Diary of a Long-Haired Lazy Girl

This post is sponsored by Pantene. All words and opinions are my own.
I'm in a good place with my hair right now, mainly because I've stopped abusing it and learned to take care of it vis-a-vis a laissez-faire approach. Although my hairstyle hasn't changed since middle school when I irrationally chopped it to shoulder length to mimic the Rachel Green flip (Friends reference for my younger readers), I've definitely attempted to personalize it over the years with coloring, highlighting, curling, perming (not my proudest hair moment), straightening, extensioning, and keratining. But with age comes a bit of wisdom and a lot of laziness, which is why about two years ago, I decided to keep my hair on permanent low-maintenance au naturale mode, a hair decision that's reaping lengthy benefits!
