Wake up in the morning and the first thing I feel is the flat mess of hair stuck to each side of my face. As I detach myself from the mess that had fixed itself to me during the night, I notice an awful smell lingering around and as I pull the last few strands of hair off my face I notice the dampness too. 'Great' I think to myself 'another hour of brushing,washing and conditioning it'.
After getting out of bed and walking to the bathroom, I take a long hard look at myself in the mirror, sighing as I turn the hot tap on and fill the wash basin up with water.
After brushing out the product from the previous day and washing it at least twice, I reach for the gel and head back to my room to turn the curling tong on. Picking up a handful of the gloppy substance to apply to just one side, I take a moment to think 'Why do I bother?' but then the pictures that are dotted around my room catch my eye and I am reminded of how unique I look with my curled facial hair and say to myself "this is why I bother".
