I am not at all sure how this is POSSIBLE, but it has happened.
On the reco of some members here, I have been testing out letting my hair *gasp* air dry, even as the temp has plummeted below 35 degrees. I thought for sure I'd get sick b/c this normally does a number on me... but today my secret was this:
The wind (and snow) blew me & my hair all over the place and when i got to work I was sure that my hair was in a million peices, done for and needed to go into a ponytail... it was suuuuuuper crunchy of course with KCCC
(but i think that is exactly what saved it!!) it was not as clumpy as when i left, of course, but by midday it has mostly crunched out and i did have to put it into half up/half down hair, but i am so impressed that it was NOT ruined!!!
BTW, I have been using ear bands, or preferably these around the neck muffs, b/c they dont mess up my hair like a hat would - but as long as my ears are covered & i wear a scarf, I'm not getting sick. I think maybe 20-25 degrees will be my new cut-off for wearing a hat
