What does your wet hair look like?

I have zero volume when my hair is wet, usually no frizz, and my curls will clump well (only if I brush after applying product). Immediately after brushing they are quite straight, but within a minute or two they start to spring back up.

I don't like how it looks when wet because I like volume (well more than when wet anyway), but I do like the way my curls often look more like waves (think 2c). If I had naturally 2c hair I would grow it really really long. As it is, at this weird frizzy 3b (with bits of 3a in the back) I can't keep it long because it looks awful.

You 2's long for 3 hair. I long for 2c hair
3b? Who knows!!

Hi!

I LOVE my hair when it's wet. The curl formation is great - it always starts to frizz more as it dries (I don't touch it at all while diffusing). I just hate going around all day w/ wet hair when I air dry. It takes pretty much 1/2 the day to dry

My hair is absolutely gross when wet. It's completely straight, stringy, and it hangs right in my face. It's also been frizzy when wet lately, which is something that's never happened to me before. Ugh. I'm glad that my dry hair looks better than my wet hair.

My hair is really stringy, and just has a wave to it when its wet. I definitely prefer my dry hair! ~~jax
2c or 3a Cut most of my hair off in July '12 and am working on regrowing it.
When wet, my curls are stretched-out, skinny, and stringy. As they dry, they form spirals and twine around each other. I get more volume as my hair dries, but it's never plastered down.

When my hair is dry it looks nothing like it does when wet- they might as well be two different heads of hair. When wet it's stringier, with zero volume. It's not nearly as curly because of the weight of the water, and it's pretty smooth. There's a stage somewhere in between when it starts looking frizzy and kind of weird, but that goes away once it's dry.

You have really cool roll-y curls . In the wet pics it seems they are shinier and lose some of their texture and I guess they are skinnier too.

BTW, did I just see some David Hasselhoff pics in your album?

soaking wet, my hair is wavy, with no frizz and length that's almost bsl. it sticks to my head. as it dries, the curls spring up, but i hate this process, because to me my curls look stringy & nasty with absolutely no volume and it takes *hours* to dry. so i'm not a big fan of my wet hair, unless i'm just popping out of the shower.
3B corkscrews with scatterings of 3A & 3C.
I picked "other" because while my hair looks straight when it's wet, I wouldn't say it's stuck to my head. It's just straight. If I let it air dry, it gets weird bends in it. If I scrunch, starting upside down, with a diffuser, then I get nice waves and curls.

Saturday, I had my hair colored at the salon. I didn't want to pay extra for styling, so I just had my stylist put gel (CG-friendly GW making waves) in and scrunch it a little. It dried so weird - straight in some places, flipped out in others, frizzy on the top, that I ended up clipping it back. The next day I rinsed, conditioned and did my normal gel, scrunch, diffuse routine, and it looked as close to perfect as my hair gets. It's weird!
Couple of inches past shoulder length 3A. Shampoo every 3rd or 4th day w/ baby shampoo; Tigi Fashionista conditioner; back to Condition 3-in-1 mousse . Alternate days water rinse, conditioner and mousse.
I wouldn't quite say: curl pulled out & flattened, stuck to my head, but it's the closest thing. My hair is less curly, more like a dried 3a, and much less volume. But not totally pulled out or flat. There's a pic on my Hair page if it helps. It's also much longer wet. I usually have about 50%+ shrinkage, esp the front.
