Cool Showing my hair?!

I'm finally happy enough with the combo products I use that I want to show it to the world...okay the NC world. The everyday world gets to see my bad hair whenever wherever. The civilians don't know any better anyway.
I'm waiting for the inner part of my hair to dry so I can style it (into my everyday updo), so these are snippets.







Hey...look! Let there be light. It's only 2:40 Portland.



Oh and I need a diffuser. Does anyone know where to get one on the ground besides Sally's? Neither my Walgreens, Rite Aid, or Fred Meyer carry them in store. I can go to Sally's it's just a further trip I rather not make. #thelaziestcgyou'veevermet

As far as diffusors go, mine came with my conair blow dryer I got from walmart. They also sell diffusers by themselves as well.

Yeah, I've seen the ones with blow dryers, but I don't need a dryer and I am personally against shopping at Walmart. Thanks for the suggestion though.

It looks beautiful, Jessiebanana! I'm so jealous of your curl pattern. Sorry I can't help with diffusers. I can't remember where I got mine from.

Beautiful. Can't get my hair to clump that well without a ridiculous amount of tangles.

Target has diffusers. I'd suggest taking the dryer with which you'll want to use it to the store with you, so you can check fit.

Thank you. I don't really do anything to get my hair to clump though. I rake in product and it takes me no more than 5 minutes. My hair doesn't get very tangly. It never has...even when it was longer.

Your hair is gorgeous! And I won't even go to Sally's unless I'm desperate. It's Amazon all the way for me!
