Hello from Alaska

Hi everyone,

I've been posting and reading for a few days but thought I would go ahead and introduce myself here.

I heard about no-poo from BotticelliBella who heard about it from Annika (who just introduced themselves on this board).

Living here, I deal with rain, subzero temperatures, high winds, sweaty outdoor activities, and LOTS of hat hair episodes. I have decided to get over my lifelong envy of people with straight hair and I am working on getting over my lifelong envy of people with thick hair!

I am so glad that straight hair is not the only stylish look anymore. Back when I was in high school in the early 90s it was a real pain to get my hair straight. I've done a lot better with "bed head" and wavy trends in recent years, but continued to be addicted to the curling iron until just last week when my friend introduced me to this site.

I had a major epiphany and gave away all my useless hair products to my favorite insecure teenager :)

I can finally step into the shower without knocking over a bunch of bottles stacked against the sides!

    Hello, fellow Alaskan here.

    Welcome to the board! I mostly only post on non-hair, but have found the hair boards very helpful when I needed it.

    That would be fabulous!

    I am so scared to get a haircut in this town. The most I have trusted anyone to do is cut 1/4 inch off the ends. I'm willing to go to Seattle for a good haircut. I posted something on the general discussion board.....
