Frizzy Hair and Hand Knitted Goodies

You might have noticed from some previous outfit photos that my hair is startiing to look a bit of a mess. Maybe a combination of the weather and  the heating but it is really frizzy at the moment. It is also in desperate need of a cut but I keep forgetting to book the hairdresser (top of my to do list for tommorrow). I have take to wearing scarves around my head as they hold down the frizz that starts to appear around my face. This is the Liberty scarf that I bought at Vintage at Goodwood.

On Friday of last week I was really pleased to recieve my order of hand knitted goodies from Oranges and Apples for a change from scarves and a further weapon in the battle of the frizz. In my last outfit I wore one of the handknitted headbands. I also got one in a dark grey but it didn't show up too well in the photo.


I also got a new red beret. It is really soft and baggy so it is really comfy to wear and doesn't exasperate my hair problem. I love vibrant colour which looks great with my navy winter coat. On Sunday I wore it with a slightly mad rainbow colour scheme which definitely cheered me up. I was definitely glad of it when I went out to the park, it was freezing. I also ordered another item which is for a Christmas pressy so I had better not feature it incase I spoil the surprise.

What do you do if you have a bad hair day?

With warmest wishes on such a cold evening

I have a bad hair day every day, I can't be bothered with it anymore so just leave it which is probably quite bad!

My hair gets really frizzy this time of the year as well (it hates the heating). I usually wear beanie hats. I love your one. The vibrant colour is amazing.

I really need a bright coloured hat...right now the one i have is grey...althought it has some gliterry fibres through it so it's a tad glam.

It may the only reason I like winter (apart from xmas, and hot chocolate, and wearing warm pajamas...), but covering your bad hair with a wolly hat or beret is a great thing.

I would like to get a beret like that for winter. Very stylish and cozy. Have you heard of the keratin complex treatment? It removes all the frizz from your hair for about 5 months. When I have a bad hair day I tame it with my flat iron. I also find washing only twice a week keeps it from getting too dry.

I suppose I'm lucky that I don't really get frizzy hair. Though I do love the headscarf and brightly coloured hats are perfect for this time of year.

Flat irons generally stop my bad hair days! I don't know how I lived without them. I thought I had lost mine the other day and was in a panic.
