aha aha! I get what you're saying. You're hair is limp and blah when it's soft but nice looking when it's "strawlike" to the touch??

No one is going to be touching my hair all day so I'd rather have it feel strawlike but look good. I complain about my hair feeling like crap sometimes and people look at me like I'm crazy because they say it looks great. Some trades off are worth the "look".

Kitara, your hair looks a LOT like mine did at that length. I had a bit of the 'strawlike' problem as well and I found that if I let it dry completely and then turned my head upside down and gently shook it, it went away? I dunno. It wasn't the best length for me and I'm growing it out. but it looks good on you.
Proudly CG since 8/10/06 - the story of my hair!
Type: 3a/b, very thick
Length: almost BSL wet
