well some. I had the worst day today, nothing went right at all. Busy too, 3 appointments in 3 different cities.

This morning I did a quick wash, but today I did something a little different. Inspired by the b&a videos posted the other day. I tried sectioning, but slightly different. I hadn't really mesed alot with it before because my hair is so thin I didn't think it would make much of a difference. I normally wash my hair upside down, and I didn't want to flip it up just to section it like in the video. I separated it in 4 sections, what I guessed would have been left/back and so on. and otherwise did like the video suggested.

I had enough time to plopp for 20 min and was literally pulling the towel off my hair while walking out the door so my hair was pretty wet. I was expecting a disaster, I have NEVER had windproof hair.

Long story short I spent most the day on the highway with windows down. then came home wollowed on the couch, took a nap with hair down and loose. And around 10pm I finally looked at my hair and WOW. Not bad considering what I put it through, a little fluffy, not alot of definition, more like soft loose curls, kinda pretty actually. But most importantly it doesn't look like I put my finger in a light socket.

If my hair can survive today without turning into a poofball, then a normal day should be no problem. Now I can say at least one thing went right today. :)

    I also didn't comb as much either. I kinda let it clump into 4 clumps and finger combed then smothed it though and then shook, scrunched and plopped.

    Isn't it funny how your hair can somehow look cute on days like that?
    Then I'll have days where I do everything right and don't let anything disturb my hair until its dry...and it looks like crap.
    I don't get it.
    Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth. I sat at a table where were rich food and wine in abundance, and obsequious attendance, but sincerity and truth were not;
    and I went away hungry from the inhospitable board.

    :laughing3: Silly girl! Did you forget that our hair has a mind of its own?! :mrgreen:

    I was SOOO tired this morning, and running late. So I just stuck my hair up in a shower cap in the shower, and then in a scrunchie for work. I haven't worn my hair all up at work since I cut it off, almost 6 months ago. Everyone kept telling me "Ooooo! You look so cute! I love the little curly 'poof' you have!" So, my bad hair day gets GREAT reactions.

    Go figure!

    I always have that problem. I can do some pretty elaborate updo's sometimes, and I don't get a second glance. But that time I just do a lazy half-up twist secured with a pencil, EVERYBODY loves it.
