hot rollers, hair straightener, hairspray, shampoo, conditioners, mousse, a converter for the correct electrical current, and a plug adapter! Oh my!! With only a small carry-on to pack, these products alone weighed at least 5 lbs of my allotted weight limit. Besides, they took up more room than an extra pair of slacks and a sweater, which I decided were more important!
So, I swallowed my pride, went to our local department store that sold wigs, and emerged a short-haired blonde. My hairstylist often colors my hair this shade but this wig might end up costing me less than 2 trips to the salon and last ALOT longer!
As it turned out - it was perfect! I always had a Great Hair Day!
Even at the top of the Eiffel Tower, with the wind blowing it wild and crazy, with just a little
combing with my fingers, I had it as good as new and the envy of my friend who had "lost her style"!
The best part was that every morning, after showering and putting on my makeup, it would take me an additional ... maybe FIVE minutes to "put my hair on" and off I could go, out the door to the local
patisserie for a croissant!
Why haven't I thought of this sooner! I call it my "Travel Hair" :-)
