Actually I use the Hibiscus & Banana Honey Creme Leave-In, which is very similar. I LOVE it. Not too heavy but very moisturizing...and smells GREAT!

I know what you mean. I want to go to a deva-certified salon, but I don't think my mom'll think it's worth the extra $$$

I do this all the time, but then I regret cutting it b/c I can never get it as long as I want! I always break down and chop it, and then I'm pissed at myself a week later!

But I'm the queen of dying my hair - something else I need to break myself of. I hate the upkeep, and having roots, and my hair is so dry and porous that the dye just ruins it.

But to answer your original question, yes I get bored with my curls all the time. Right now I've been blowing it out all the time. My pregnancy seems to be pulling out the curl, and it's annoying that it falls out 20 minutes later, so I just gave up. Plus, my hair is short right now, and I feel like the curls make me look so young. And not in a good way. I feel like I look cutesy, Shirley Temple young.

My goal is to grow it out one length in hopes of pulling out the curl and getting more of a wave, that would be easier to maintain. I'm so SICK of having this producty coif that can't blow around, and I can't run my fingers through.

I don't get bored of my curls, but I do get bored with styling them. I can't change the way I style my hair, which is really boring...parted to the side and a clip holding a strand of hair - that otherwise would fall on my right eye - and that's it! I do put it up in a ponytail, but that's when I'm having a bad hair day or when I'm too lazy to wash it and the curls are already squashed. I've tried changing how I style my hair, but I don't feel comfortable about it. I don't know why! I hate how some do's make my face even rounder than it already is, or if it looks too "femenine" or too whatever! *sigh* It's frustrating!

Default Bored of Curls?

I really don't get too bored with my hair very often. I am not as likely to get bored with my hair when other people make positive comments about my hair. As I have said before, I have very wavy hair naturally. I have straightened my hair in the past. I only got a few positive comments when I straightened my hair. My hair was in it's natural state for many years, and people frequently complimented me on my hair. I have permed my hair, which is the style I am wearing now, because I wanted curls, and I was tired of having "in-between" hair. I have gotten a lot of nice compliments with my hair being permed as well. I greatly value the opinions of other people, probably more than most people, but that's just my personality.
