How's everyone's hair today?

Mine's actually looking pretty good. I misted it with water, put in some Tresemme Bouncy Curls, and diffused it. And of course I haven't showered yet. Sponge bath anyone? LOL

I thought, "I should have my daughter take a picture of this to post" and then I looked at my chin in profile (too much :icescream: lately) and instantly headed for the rebounder. :blob7:

    Mine's wet & wavy at the moment (just washed).

    Sadly mine's a total mess. But glad to hear you are having a good day! I'm going to the gym later and planning on dyeing my hair so I have to go without product and conditioner from what I've been told. That'll be fun!:laughing7:

    Mine looks like crap today but that's because I didn't wash it and threw it into a pony.

    Yesterday though was great. I applied my leave-in conditioner, Aussi scrunch and plopped for 20 minutes or so. The results were awesome!

    I'm glad you're having a good day, wavy!

    Good hair day!

    I used the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Knot-Today-p-207.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-knot-today-leaveindetangler]KCKT[/buylink]/KCCC/HESMU combo, which is turning into a real winner for me! Clumpy wavy curls with spirally ends.

    Our weather is cooperating lately, as well. Good humidity and dewpoints!

    Well, my good hair day is wasted, if that's any consolation. I'm just sitting at home working.

    I go pick my son up from his dad's in a couple of hours. No matter what my hair looks like, my ex-H's GF says "oh, your hair is so cuuuuuuuute." Makes me want to gag. One day I had roots, ragged ends, and it was windblown, and she STILL said it. (This was pre-CG). But her hair is bleached, starched, and balding, so I guess it doesn't take much to impress her. (No lie, I'm not being a ***** here. I sat behind her at my son's 8th grade commencement, on bleachers, so I got a good view. She does a combover like The Donald and bleaches it super light so her hair and scalp are the same color. Then she sprays it into a helmet so it doesn't move. And she's only 36).

    After many attempts and permutations with these products I hit the nail on the head. As per some wise curlys advice, I used a smidge of each and then scrunched BRHG on top.

    This was my easiest, best result to date:)

    Alright. It's my off day so I didn't use any stylers at all and it's air drying at the moment. No itching though, and it feels very soft! :D

    A little frizzy, but pretty nice clumping and curls that have held all day. Decided to give Jessicurl a try after a very long hiatus. Not bad with the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Aloeba-Daily-Conditioner-p-104.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-aloeba-daily-conditioner]Aloeba[/buylink] leave in, [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Gelebration-Spray-p-101.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-gelebration-spray]Gelebration[/buylink] & CC...wondering if the AO Swimmer's condish is what threw it off a little.

    I mean, I have decent definition, it's just voluminous. I have my little bang-y things pulled back with some bobby pins. I'm liking that simple little style. Gets them out of my eyes.

    I tried HEBE for the second time today (not so much luck yesterday - but that's another story).

    I'm having a really good hair day. It even held up in a vertiable hurricane when leaving the office. 'Course humidity is down today to 58% so that could be why. :)

    It's okay, I guess. I got some really nice definition of curls, but it's got all these frizzies sticking out. Probably because I'm using a creme styler with my enemy, cyclopentsiloxane; I have to use it up though, since I paid for it.

    Mine is actually really, really good today! I plopped with the microfiber towel and am air drying. In 30 minutes or so I'll flip my hair upside down and scrunch it with my hands.

    The second edition is coming out soon (or maybe it's already out).

    I checked mine out from the library. (I pulled it off the shelf out of total curiosity. I had no clue I was a curly girl until I read the section that described wavies). I always thought my occasionally "messy curly" hair was from being too lazy to comb it out after I showered. :laughing7:

    Ditto, wavy!

    My hair has always been wavy/curly but until this year I was always trying to blow dry it "straight" and would be upset because it wasn't exactly straight and shiny. I guess I had an epiphany. Finding this site a few weeks ago has been amazing. :thumright:

    What didn't help matters is I'm the only living family member on both sides with curly hair. I didn't have anyone to give me advice. My mom always told me to appreciate the natural body my hair has. :angry7: I always thought until recently she was crazy for saying that.

    If I have a curly haired kid they're getting instruction, help, & encouragement from me that's for sure!

    My dad for sure has some sort of wave or curl to his hair, but he keeps it in a flat top, so it's hard to tell unless you're right next to him. Then you can see that his hair texture is bendy.

    I think my 17-y/o DD is a CG too. One of her friends put a bunch of Aussie Scrunch Spray on her one day and went after it with their hands and a blowdryer. She had a ton of curly waves (albeit frizzy) and said they never used a curling iron. I mentioned CG to her, but she says she likes her hair straight.

    Even though I'm a wavy, I get straight really easily. My SO's daughter is in cosmetology school. I was her first haircut model (brave me, eh? But she did a really good job). At the end, she had to ask if I wanted it curled or straightened. My hair holds a curling iron curl for crap, so I said straightened. Once she got the blow dry done, it was already straight, no iron required. The instructor, who had this mass of curls, goes "Damn, I wish MY hair did that!" while I'm looking at her going "Damn, I wish my had did THAT!"

    LOL I guess no one's happy with their hair.
