this must be a common misconception among straighties. A couple of months ago I had to go into work early, and when I got there my hair was still drying and clipped at the roots. I passed another coworker in the hall (there were only a few of us there at that hour) and she said, "You know you have clips in your hair, right?" And I told her yes, that my hair wasn't quite dry enough to take them out. She asked what they were for, and when I told her, she said, "Oh, I'm glad to know it doesn't just look perfect on its own every day!" And I was flattered that she thinks my hair looks perfect, and also perplexed that she thought it didn't take any work to get it to look how it does. I think people with straight hair really think there's no effort involved at all, which is a teeny bit annoying but also kind of cute. Let 'em be jealous of my "effortless" hair, lol!
Dusalocks and Jas, I think we're hair triplets! Waves? Check. One side that waves at the roots and then spirals at the ends? Check. A bunch of random 3A bits? Check. A whole lotta 3B bits, mostly underneath where no one but me knows they're there? Check!
