^ I agree.



I'm going to try mini pineapples tonight and see how it goes. I'll post pictures tomorrow with either success or epic fail.

ETA, I guess my little ^ carrot didn't work, since I'm on a new page, oops. Oh well. lol

A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

(Any HtBlack you find anywhere on the internet is most likely always moi! :3)
Immediately after removing pineapple; followed by water, tiny bit of gel, and diffusing. In person it looks like a frizzy poof. Help!

Pineapple bun'ed first thing in the morning hair, the released mop and the slightly more tamed styling aftermath!

Lately I have been managing to get some 3-day hair though

When you do get a chance to try it out do show us pictures! I'm going to give it a go soon I think, because sometimes my pineapple stretches out my back curls :/

PINEAPPLE FAIL.

But as promised, I have pictures. Good lord, I'm glad I can laugh myself. Don't mind my faces, I was tired, grumpy, and disgusted at my hair. It completely straightened one part on the left side of my head. Did I do this wrong? I put 2 on top. Should I try more?

From L to R: what's left of my pineapples, after taking it out, & styled. 2nd day hair on a very windy day when my hood had to be worn.

ETA: D'oh! I just remembered you are in the UK, so you aren't having as harsh of a winter as we are here.
