Dusa- thanks! My pictures are all of my best days lol, and all diffused. If I don't diffuse it's definitely flat at the crown. I tried going wavy the other day. I raked & then twisted it up into a turban instead of a plop. Let it sit for a while & then diffused the roots only. The result was a stringy crappy mess. I just can't do it :-/ it's pretty when I do it curly & I feel blessed to have the natural clumps & spirals I have but I just don't like the shrinkage right now, and the lack of an "in between." It's either flat & stringy, or big & poofy & clumpy. It's an awkward length & I will probably just continue to put it up & leave it alone until it grows a few more inches, which might be Christmas at this rate :sigh:
