In Which Bella Sizzles Her Hair

We all make mistakes, right? That's what I keep telling myself. Unfortunately, I have unruly strands of hair around my hairline and ears that sometimes require a little flat ironing to settle them down. I also have farsighted vision. Recently, I inadvertently turned the flat iron heat intensity dial to the highest of the settings, instead of the intended lowest number. My fine-textured strands couldn't take the heat, and crispy ends ensued. Yikes!

Have you ever experienced a similar incident? Since I've been patiently letting my hair grow for almost a year, panic set in. I immediately emailed my former stylist, Veronica Rubio of Salon V in Chicago, for advice. "Does this mean I have to cut it all off?" I worried. Find out what she said about treating frizzled locks after the jump.

According to Rubio, "A trim is a great idea. It will help blend the pieces that have burnt off and also keep the ends from breaking off themselves because they are now dry and brittle, just like a split end. Also, just like treating split ends, you can do some deep conditioning treatments at home or in a salon to help restore moisture."

See, it's not so bad, after all. Check out some of my favorite deep conditioning treatments if your hair needs a little assistance. And as for me, I'll just have to pay better attention — and wear my glasses.

I had a friend who would curl her hair in the most beautiful way- they looked so natural. One day she left it on too long and a whole chunk of her front hair completely burnt off. By the end of the year she had this little patch of baby bangs.

Yes, I have done this before! I plugged my US curling iron into my European adaptor and plugged that into the UK socket ... it was fine but made it WAY hotter than normal and without noticing, I picked it up and used it. Fried my hair completely - burnt it to a crisp. It was so sad. From then on, I stuck to buying UK electrical hair tools. *sigh*
