Default Experiments

I fix my hair as often as time would permit me to. The first place B looks for me if she doesn't know where I am, is in the bathroom. I could fix my hair "one last time" all night. When she takes a nap I either shower again, or re-wet/style my hair.

I got ready before gymboree this morning, than fixed my hair a bit while she napped. And now I'm doing a DT and I will do my hair after I rinse it out.

I have issues.

I usually just do it once in the morning as far as washing or putting product on 2nd or 3rd day hair.

I do put it up or down a few times throughout the day depending on what area I'm working in and how busy/hot I am. Products I just apply the one time unless I'm going out at night then I'll apply again before that.

I don't mess with my hair too much, but I'll often reapply makeup throughout the day / evening ... I understand :P

But you don't have an option for just once in the morning! I will check my hair and sometimes flip upside down or fluff if it's getting flat during the day, but I usually don't need to mess with my hair much during most days. :P

I don't want to guano your thread, but I've been off for several weeks with moving and all. I just saw your avatar and had to say WOW! I love your new look with all your beautiful curls back! Woohoo!

The only time I 'restyle' my hair besides in the morning, is after a session at the gym, in which case I just refresh it a little with some spray and smooth some SIF over. Other than that I don't reapply anything throughout the day usually.

Even if I have all the time in the world and am hanging around the house all day, the last thing I want to do is re-style my hair.

It only gets a once-over each morning -- and I don't even wash it but once every 5-6 days, so we're talking a quick spritz of AI and some RR/CCSS.

And this is good, because I've noticed that if I actually do wash and completely restyle my hair more frequently than normal, or re-wet it, it tends looks worse for it. Washing it more frequently and manipulating it fluffs it up too much.

The less I mess with my hair, the better it looks.

Hey!!! Where did it go?

Actually, it said "Restyle? I'm lucky if I do it before work in the morning!"

Hardly ever! If it doesn't come out good down I'll just put if 1/2 up or up in a knot or p-tail.

Same here. I'll only restyle if I'm going out at night, or something.

Only when I do it in the morning.

I might take the pony tail out/in or change some clips. Nothing major.

I just do mine in the morning, I may spray it during the day if it starts looking frizzy (when does it not!), but if it needs more than that then it's pony tail time. It's time consuming and bad enough to have to do it once a day, I have no desire to do it any more often!
