So are there things you do to your hair that you can't seem to stop doing even though you know it does no good? Here's mine:

1) Can't seem to stop trying JC products even though I know they don't work for me. I so want to like them.

2) Can't seem to keep my darned fingers out of my hair! Frizz!

3) Can't seem to stop moving the diffuser when I'm trying so hard to do the Pixiecurl method.

#2..........Good grief I think there should be handcuffs to keep your hands out of your hair, especially during the wind!!!

Yeah, I saw it somewhere on the net and loved it too. The one I saw skidded in with a cigarette in one hand and a martini in the other. I changed it to CHOCOLATE of course!

I, too, have a major problem with keeping my hands out of my hair while it's drying...

#2 for SURE!!!

I can't keep my hands out of my hair all throughout the day! I constantly play with my curls, I just love how they spring back up when I pull them... they're just so much FUN!!

I heartily agree with your editorial decision - as long as we're talking dark chocolate!!!

I heard once that doing the same thing over and over, expecting different results is the definition of insanity (I think this is usually attrib. to Einstein). This is me and my hair. The only problem is, with curly hair, sometimes you DO get different results!

I keep putting gel on soaking wet hair thinking it will work for me. I get something my DH affectionately calls "wet-dog" hair every time--loose, kinky waves (how can it be loose and kinky at the same time??? good question!) that never seem to dry. There is no crunch to scrunch, just heavy, flexible, plastic feeling strands.
