So I've been a member since 2001, and have gone through a lot of experimenting and products over the years. Gave up and started straightening a while ago to look more professional. Here's the thing though--it is summer time. I just spent a weekend in South Carolina and my straightened hair was bigger than my mom's perm an hour after I did it. I am traveling to Italy next week where it is super hot and the last thing I want to do is to straighten every day. So I'll let it curl. However I really REALLY hate my hair looking wet--it makes me feel sloppy and yucky. How do I make it wavy and not wet?

by the way, this board was not here when I first joined, and I haven't looked at hair discussion in years, but this is a great idea!
