Showing my hair?!

I'm finally happy enough with the combo products I use that I want to show it to the world...okay the NC world. The everyday world gets to see my bad hair whenever wherever. The civilians don't know any better anyway:glasses10:.
I'm waiting for the inner part of my hair to dry so I can style it (into my everyday updo), so these are snippets.

Hey...look! Let there be light. It's only 2:40 Portland.

Oh and I need a diffuser. Does anyone know where to get one on the ground besides Sally's? Neither my Walgreens, Rite Aid, or Fred Meyer carry them in store. I can go to Sally's it's just a further trip I rather not make. #thelaziestcgyou'veevermet

    As far as diffusors go, mine came with my conair blow dryer I got from walmart. They also sell diffusers by themselves as well.

    Yeah, I've seen the ones with blow dryers, but I don't need a dryer and I am personally against shopping at Walmart. Thanks for the suggestion though.

    It looks beautiful, Jessiebanana! I'm so jealous of your curl pattern. Sorry I can't help with diffusers. I can't remember where I got mine from. :confused:

    Target has diffusers. I'd suggest taking the dryer with which you'll want to use it to the store with you, so you can check fit.
    Peace,

    Thank you. I don't really do anything to get my hair to clump though. I rake in product and it takes me no more than 5 minutes. My hair doesn't get very tangly. It never has...even when it was longer.

    Trying out new things, still looking.
