    Too funny - when I straightened I always wanted to move to AZ so the curls wouldn't pop out and frizz as soon as I walked outside the way they did here. Thanks for posting SBB!

    I can't believe Oklahoma didn't make the list... dry, hard water, random bouts of humidity, weather is all over the place (take last month for example is was in the 60's one week and then we had a ice/snow storm), and does anyone remember the song Oklahoma? Well here is a reminder... "Oooooooklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plain"

    Can you tell I miss MD... my curls have never been the same.

    I'm in the 3rd worst city?!

    Damn, I should write Kinky Curly (along with Aubrey and Curl Junkie) a thank you note, lol. I really don't have any hair problems aside from ingredient intolerances.

    I think Eugenes humidity would actually be helpful. Moist, but not gross like the southeast.

    My hair is always a flat, frizzy mess when I'm in Eugene, no matter what I do to it. And, it's an ugly city in general. If you're ever in Oregon, come to Portland instead and we'll go to Voodoo Doughnuts!

    I have to concur with you on all counts, OperaCurls. Eugene is not so great, unless you like the smell of patchouli and Ducks. I live in Portland (but used to live in Grants Pass way down south), and Voodoo is the place I take everyone who visits. I think it ends up scaring them away, with the part of town it's in, but it's always a good time when they see the ****-n-Balls!

    Yes, the humidity does suck in Eugene. Most of us dont smell like patchouli, thank god. And Im not just saying that because I live in Eugene. Im a Portlander by heart, having been born there.

    Oddly enough I have really good hair days in Las Vegas and when Im in Cali. Even have consistent good hair days here in crappy old hippy dippy granola town Eugene. ;)

    Oh thank you! I actually just got it cut again today. It's a bit shorter than usual, but it will end up growing out and into the cut in my avatar. You should try it! I think short hair and bangs look great on most people!

    Haha Collee, I really didn't mean it. Just poking some fun. I actually like Eugene for the most part and would've gone to UofO if I didn't absolutely adore Portland so much. I'm a city girl by heart and Eugene couldn't fulfill that role for me, unfortunately. I still have a lot of Duck pride though!

    Dont know if it will be 24hr. Yes, the college kids will love it. I love the crazy vibe of their places. Went there last summer, walked in on a wedding. :toothy4:

    I came across that list again, somewhere else in my roaming. San Fran is on the best city list, and I have never had a stellar hair day there.

    I'm amazed that Honolulu didn't make the list! Granted, we're not anywhere near as polluted as most of these cities, nor do we have hard water, but we're one of the most consistently humid places in the US. Vegas was on the list, but when I spent last summer there, my hair looked great. It wasn't as curly/wavy as it is here in Hawaii, but it was practically frizz-less.

    Honolulu is also a pretty horrible city for curly hair, since the vast majority of our population has silky, straight, typically Asian hair. This means that it's almost impossible to find a stylist who works well with, or even has any respect for wavy or curly hair. I've only had two stylists who didn't make snide comments about my natural texture, and they were both from out-of-state, and even those stylists were all about the silicones. Others would shoot down my requests to be shown how to style my hair with a diffuser or by air drying. I remember a stylist telling me something like, "You really should APPRECIATE the fact that I'm going to give you a great blowout and enjoy this." And of course, I've walked out salons after paying 200-400 dollars, only to wash my hair a couple days later and have it look like a big pouf if I dare to let it dry naturally. But I JUST found an amazing, curly haired stylist so that's in the past. :)

    Oh, all of the awesome curly/wavy friendly brands that you guys talk about picking up at salons? You won't find any of those, anywhere in the state, nor will you be able to find any stylist who can give you a DevaCut. I'm really jealous, if you can't tell. =p

    But oddly, the average (non-stylist) person here seems to love wavy/curly hair. I get stopped by random people, even when my hair is a frizzy mess, who tell me that it's beautiful. So even in a sea of shiny, perfectly straight hair, there's still some love for waves and curls! Go figure.

    I'm glad to see New Orleans makes the list! I go to school here and it's just awful. Even in the winter when it's somewhat cold the humidity is such a curl killer. I love the city, but I'm running away from the weather as soon as I graduate!

    Anchorage isn't very much fun for your hair, either. I think I would rather live in quite a few of those other places than up here.

    My hair likes hard water and humidity so many of those places would give me great hair. And I don't go to a hair salon so the cities without them would be fine with me. The dry places I would have to agree with. My hair doesn't like dry so much.

    And how old is that list - Pittsburgh is no longer a polluted city.
    --I'm located in Western PA.
    --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
    --My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
    --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    Honolulu is #2 in the best hair day cities. I havent ever been there, but I could probably bet the bank that I wouldnt have very happy hair days there.

    Oh that's hilarious. Obviously written by somebody who has never actually lived here. Sexy, beachy hair like you get on vacation is not the norm most of the time. There's the stereotype of beachiness in Hawaii, and it's definitely true to an extent, but if you're from the "city" like me, and have a 9-5 m-f office job, you're not going to the beach often. My hair looks great after the beach and reacts well to salt water (at least superficially), but I end up with beachy hair on maybe 10-15 occasions per year. But on most days, there is a slight cloud of frizz throughout the top layers of my hair. I wouldn't say it's awful, but it's definitely not nearly as great as it's been in other places.

    But maybe it's really good for people with straight hair. Most of the people in my family have straight hair, and theirs is gorgeous. It seems like the humidity here gives them a bit more volume and a little more texture than they'd have elsewhere. But I can't imagine that the amount of sunshine we get would be good for anybody's hair. If I'm spending a lot of time at the beach over a few weeks, my hair will start turning a bit brassy, very quickly. :(

    But yeah, from what some other people are saying, this article seems like it wasn't written by someone who was very well informed about the subject matter.
