Straight vs. Curly . . . Post Your Pics!

Like Tree51Likes

l.deon, you can attach photos if they're saved on your computer by clicking post reply on the left at the bottom or top of the page as opposed to clicking on the quick reply icon. There is an option to manage attachments in there.

If you have your images already uploaded on a site, which it seems you do, right-click the image and choose to "copy image location" and then paste that in your post (you can do this with any kind of reply). Once you've pasted it, put it between one bracket like this on the left [img] and one bracket like this [/img] on the right. No spaces between the address and brackets.

You can also just right-click to copy the image and then paste it, but I find that's easier if you just have one image in your post. It sometimes doesn't seem to work.

Here are my two pictures. One is with the curl, and the other was not straightened with anything other than a ponytail but it's still straighter.

Edit: no clue why one of them is sideways.... Oh well

By the way, I just put the brackets in bold to show what was missing from your post, don't bold them when you're posting an image.

As an attachment (remember you can't do this with the quick reply option):

Just click "post reply", go down to where it says additional options and click on "manage attachments". Then select the file from where you have it saved on your computer. I right-clicked your image and chose to save it on my desktop so I could attach it for this post:
(I don't know about your other pic, so I could only post this one)

I prefer this color to just henna, because it has more depth to it and doesn't look orange when I'm having a frizzy day.

Then: Blow fried for over an hour



Now: Riding the Waves

Your waves are so gorgeous, Del. Absolutely prefer them to the straight hair.
Opera_curls, no contest either. No wonder you look ticked off with straight hair.
This morning
