Thanks!

I forgot to add that I also realized that the kind of waves I really love on other people that I see on here just don't seem to work on me. I can get clumpy waves like them, but I don't...

I just don't care anymore--pic

I agree with leaving them alone. I started noticing mine at 20 and I plucked them out at first. I think plucking damaged the follicles and I seem to have thinner hair where I used to pluck. I dyed...

I think what bothers me the most is that my canopy and front are only lightly wavy (and frizzy.) I pull up the canopy and the waves are much more distinct. Then the sausage curls are under that. I...

sausage curls and light waves--anyone?

My hair confuses me. If I airdry, don't touch my hair, and don't leave anything in---I get two or three big, long sausage curls underneath and the rest is wavy with more wave in the back and less in...

I have no real suggestions but want to say that your airdryed hair looks pretty! Maybe not as "styled" as the other, but the flips and waves are nice.:)

I didn't read the whole thread, but I think this is what scares wavies away from websites on how to care for their "curls." Our hair is clearly not straight, but neither is it full of springy curls....

Wow, pretty hair guys.

I'm streaky along the hairline and I'm getting a sprinkling of sugar on the top.
