Style blogger Michelle Williams says it takes a little bit of luck and patience, but she knows how to get it done.
After being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and suffering from the constant pain, the 29-year-old from Loughborough, Northern Ireland, couldn’t afford to get her hair straightening done at home, so instead, she bought a kit from a salon to use at home.
Michelle, who is a freelance fashion stylist, is one of the thousands of people suffering from fibromyalgary arthritis and wants to share her journey with people who are struggling with the same affliction.
I’m still not sure exactly what the heck fibromy-fibromyalgia is, but it’s a chronic pain condition that can cause debilitating pain and loss of sensation in the joints.
I was diagnosed with it at 16 and I was prescribed a bunch of different medicines and painkillers and I think that probably helped a bit, but I still felt like my joints were bothering me.
So I was going to a hair salon, which is a very nice salon, and they’re all really good people, so I just went in, and I just really felt that they treated me really well and they gave me a really great experience.
I went to a different salon, but that didn’t help, so that’s when I decided I wanted to try and get it straightened at home rather than in a salon.
Michelle said:I started doing a little research online, and there was a whole bunch of websites about this condition.
So I started to get a little more information and just started going through it online.
I would just get a brush and a little extra oil, I would apply it on my head and my armpits, and that’s it.
I would do this a couple of times a week for about a month and I’d be happy.
I’d do it in the morning and then I’d do the whole morning and I would leave for home, and then if I was home I would just take it off and just have it in my hair and just do the rest of the day.
I was doing it all the time, and it was really, really good.
And then, just in case I was coming back home, I’d just go straight to the salon and I wouldn’t do it for another day.
It was great.
I’ve been doing it for about six months now, and everything’s been amazing.
I feel like I’ve got a pretty good result, and the hair’s actually getting better, and my joints are a little better too.
Michelle says the biggest thing about her hair is that it has to stay in place, so she doesn’t have to go back to a salon for straightening her hair.
She said:There are other treatments out there that I think are actually better, but for me it’s really good because it’s getting it out of my hair in a way that’s not painful or uncomfortable.
It’s not too long, it’s not going into my hair, and when I do have to get out of the salon I just have to brush my hair.
It really feels like I’m taking care of myself.
I’m happy with how it’s going.
I know it’s very difficult for some people, but at the end of the time it’s worth it because you’re giving yourself so much to do, and for me, it was a great feeling.
Michelle is now on the hunt for other hair products that she can try to straighten her hair in the salon, before going back to home.
She has also started a blog about her experience called My Hair That Doesn’t Want To Grow.
