I've been struggling with the hair thing. I'd been wearing it in a scrunchy, but since we got comments about my looking "sloppy" and "disheveled," I was doing the ponytail with an elastic, twisted up and hidden in a big clip. This made me look extremely severe and required enough produce to destroy the environment three times over. AND if a little got out of place, it looked even worse.
Two weeks ago (or something like that), I was in downtown Oakland in the rain and it was just feeling heavier and frizzier and by the time I got to Sebastian, I was like "DO SOMETHING!"
Now it's shorter (not supershort, but a lot shorter) and I'm basically only wearing it short and curly. I was totally paranoid that the Team Leader would freak out. Her boss saw it first and said it was OK. Team Leader was taken aback, but has gotten used to it and everybody seems to feel that it's really "cute." Definitely more forgiving. Makes me look younger etc.
I'm using Deva One products. I wash it with No-Poo, use conditioner, dry it with a t-shirt (No Terry Cloth! is the new "No Wire Hangers.) apply gel and scrunch. The hardest part is not touching it after the scrunching, because touching makes frizz.
I'll get a picture up when I can have a good one taken.
