Thanks, lil_earthmomma, gosh you'd think you were naturally straight haired. And you have a really pretty face.
I also have no idea how women straighten their long hair daily. I do straighten mine sometimes, but once a week tops. I know I'd prefer having less hair to straighten and wash - it's just a case of going through with it! (Such a wimp.) I'm not really one to care too much about what others think of my appearance (more important things etc) but there does still seem to be a stigma attached to women having short hair. And actually it really suits some (yourself included, of course.) Anyway, sorry, I won't start writing an essay on 21st century expectations of women!
