How To Get Down

I'll be the first to admit that a top knot has been my go-to 'do to combat my untamed tresses for as long as I can remember. The second my hair started turning wavy on me around the 6th grade (yes, it was straight before that!), I didn't have a clue how to control it, so I turned to a ponytail holders and bobby pins and my girlfriends 
nicknamed me "Frizz" & "Bun-Bun" #curlyhairproblems

I quickly acquainted myself with Frizz Ease®  products at a young age, which is why I am so excited to be partnering with John Frieda for their Frizz Ease®

#downfor30 contest! 

Ladies: It is time to officially drop the top knot, bail on the ponytail, 
and tell the bun, “Sorry, you’re done!”

  3. Can i tell you that I do a top knot because I have dreads, and I do it when they're being really unruly!

  4. Wow! I always wear my hair down anyways. Except today. lol I can commit. #downfor30

  5. I'm so bad about putting my hair up at the gym! I usually wear it down to work but I go to the gym 4 days out of the week so it almost always goes up then and I know it's so bad for my hair! I need to find something else to do with it instead!
