No More Upside Down!
 
It's been a super duper long time since I posted, wow!! My hair is much longer now, slightly past shoulder-length and seems to be wavier (a lot more in the summer of course!). I had a pretty good routine going where after I did a final rinse in the shower, I would turn my head upside down and scrunch out the extra water a bunch of times before adding in my products then plop for a good hour and then start diffusing, first upside down and then regularly. Unfortunately, my neck can no longer handle the upside down stuff......I threw it out twice in one week and I'm scared to try again!!!! Anyone have any suggestions for what I can do now? I have to wash my hair tomorrow and I guess I'll try pretty much the same routine except after a final rinse, I'll scrunch and apply products with my head to the side instead of upside down. Thanks ya'll!!:iroc:

There is no way I would be able to do anything upside down with soaking wet hair, my hair nearly reaches my bum and it's heavy..I think I would break my neck!

Scrunching to the side works just as well :) I get most of the water out this way, and then scrunch upside down

Plus 1 for scrunching to the side. I tried the up side down thing several times, and while I sort of like it for rinsing my scalp, I couldn't possibly use it for styling. There would be hair going in all directions and definitely not curling together.

So I just did side-to-side styling today and then plopped for a bit and my waves came out kind of....meh. I think it may be partly due to the weather...since autumn hit, my waves seems so much less defined which is a bummer. When I wash my hair again on either Saturday or Sunday, I think I'll try skipping the plopping and just do side to side from start to finish.:toothy4:
