Default How W-I-D-E is your hair? (this is for you rudee)

This is for you Rudee so you can see big is beautiful! My hair tends to get wide and go sideways when I don't weigh it down with products.
It's BSL wet but sometimes sits at or above my shoulders.

This is my hair when I don't pull my sides back and up. Also this is my doggie trying on my satin bonnet.

LOL. I love you Speck! You gave me a genuine tickle when I really needed it.

Ok, heres the deal: I am gonna hunt down some old photos of my hair in all its wideness glory, scan them, then upload them. Then you will see the wideness of which I speak!

Admittedly, since going CG this is FAR less of an issue. And, I gotta say, that hip to hair ratio you pointed out has done wonders for my body image!

I love it! Mine can get quite wide too, especially in humidity.

don't you sometimes feel sufficated by your wide hair? any by wide, do you mean puffy? i dunno if i would consider my hair wide, but defintely puffy. and sometimes i feel it jus sufficating me! and i feel my cheeks turn hot and red just from my hair sometimes! what is your 2nd day process like? i need to rewet my whole head in order for it took semi- 2nd day. if i only wet the top, it looks like a nest underneath... again, maybe its cause my hair is puffy

My face can get really hot if I wear the sides down. I just pull my bangs and sides up and back and secure with a big barrette.

I usually wet my hair every day. It's easier to add product and detangle that way.

My hair is so lame that i literally need to dunk my head in the sink and completely co-wash (or co rinse) and detangle for it too look good everyday... unfortunately i dont have that luxury since i work sooo early... so i just end up throwing it in a bun and doing something cute to the front...
