omg... your curls are TOO ADORABLE! lol, this is going to probably sound like an insult and I absolutely don't mean it that way... but it looks like a wig. Every little curl is just SO perfect!

ugh, total hair envy.

Awww! thank you girls.
You both have beautiful curls, too. In fact sometimes I wish I had a looser curl. Probably because it won't shrink that much and I would love to try longer curls.

Last time my hair was straight (from a salon):

Ok. I needed to search for my picture of my straight hair. Here goes me with straight hair, and much longer. I cut a bunch off when I decided to cut all the unhealthy off. btw - this is the straightest it has EVER looked:


Here I am with a half skip curl (just the top) from last week:

My hair just doesn't want to be straight. That's ok though. I just want everyone's curls. I'm hating my hair right now. It's pouring rain nonstop for the last two days. My hair is so tightly curled that I look like I'm wearing a Weird Al wig.

I like seeing the different looks on everyone!
I actually flat iron completely straight but never take a picture when I do. However, I haven't ironed in quite a while. The two below are sort of straight.

about a year ago

I had to really dig to find these, and this picture is not just pre-CG and straight, it's also pre-Proactiv. (EEK!) In 2006:



And this week:



I also look a lot older, I guess.

2.5 hours at a salon involving rollers, a hood dryer, a fat brush and a flat iron. I can't do it myself as that ends up looking a lot like my brushed out pic.

I get a good week out of straight hair though - which I must admit is nice.
