I promised myself I would blog each day on this trip. But today I want to discuss something I have hidden for many years. You see I have a condition. I don’t know how or where I contracted  this infirmity and I don’t know anyone else who suffers from it. I assume it is quite rare. I have been secretly battling it for a few years now, it’s called Rebellious Eyebrow Syndrome and currently it affects my right eyebrow. IMG_1160

Now you may think that Rebellious Eyebrow Syndrome, or RES, isn’t a real disease and you would be right, but the pain and embarrassment it causes is very real.

I can wake up and brush my hair and walk right into public IF it were not for RES. When I wake up in the morning, this is what I see in the mirror, I’m referring to the first ever photo of my shame!!

Water doesn’t cure it, brow wax, and brow pencils, they can’t make my eyebrow behave. It takes a combination of the above ingredients and some high powered gel to tame these hairs enough to be seen in public.

I have even sought professional help at ULTA’s Brow Bar! They looked at me from afar, dragged me around the store pulling various products for me to try, and then they just stared at me dumbfounded. They had never seen the likes of my ailment. I told them I could donate my brow to science…or whatever beauty school they attended. They laughed, but I left without a cure.

So I write this in hopes that I am not alone in this, and that someone will come forward with their own story of RES or a cure. I know it’s a long shot, but a girl can hope.

P.S. We made it to Texas today!! Stay tuned tomorrow for the next giveaway!!
