I completely agree Corrina - at least I'm never bored with my hair
kstan, I always have had a straighter underneath as well - but mine's doing the same thing you mentioned - spirals and ringlets. I'm pretty happy about that because now I feel like a get a more even look and I'm not always worried about my longer layers looking weird because they are so much straighter.
Now if only I could get my top layer in the back to cooperate. That's my problem area - it got thinned out even though I asked for no thinning.
