1. How do you deal with breezes/ wind/ humidity/ drizzle without a ton of product?
-Be realistic. You need to protect hair from wind - an elegant scarf? Or put your hair up on windy days if you're going to be outside. WInd will undo the best pile of leaves, knock over garbage cans, and undo even the hardest-hold gel. Drizzle? Umbrella!
2. How do you see the back of your head and still have two free hands to style?
-I just get my stunt double to do it.
3. How do you deal with getting (very) sweaty in your roots and needing to look presentable right after?
-Are you sure you don't look presentable? My scalp can sweat a whole lot and not be apparent in my hair. Getting the sweat dry might help.
4. How do you get through the learning curve without washing your hair constantly?
- Why bother? Wash your hair when you need to. When/if you want to. Why impose impractical rules on yourself when it frustrates you?
5. How do you get mega tangles caused by product out without brushing?
- Get in shower. Wet hair. Slather on huge gob of conditioner. Starting at the ends, with fingers or a wide-tooth comb, gently work out the tangle. Never rip, tear, yank, or give up. Stop and relax/take deep breaths often.
6. Are there any easy and neat up-dos for shoulder length hair that don't pull the curl out?
-My hair is fine and thus any updo tends to pull out the waves/curl or at least warp the shape. I have come to accept this. After an updo, I must re-do.
7. How do you deal with sections that are straight and fluffy at the same time?
- Love them both. This is normal. Scrunch the straight parts a bit more, use pin curls if you want, trim them shorter if they always hang too long. But don't scorn them. They may need a bit different treatment.
8. How do you use roller jaw clamps without touching your hair so much it poofs out?
- I use jaw clips on top of my hair for volume. Only on top, I don't twirl the hair or anything. I just open them up, put them near my scalp and close them. Then leave them there. Very little touching involved. But I don't do this until my hair is partly dry or it would leave weird dents.
If your hair is poufing out too much, you might need more gel... a leave-in... a layered haircut, more info. needed there.
