in love, basically

Hey my fellow curlies,

Do you ever have days where you just sit back in awe of our hair? These days are far too few and far between, I know, but on days when it all just "works" do you ever just sigh and smile?

Yesterday I used products very sparingly and had a raging fro, and I loved it. Today things are "back to normal", and I love it. Probably tomorrow, whatever I decided to do, I'll love it. I just cannot get over the versatility we've got. Whenever I have to deal with the stares of strangers or the inane comments of (usually) well-meaning straight-haired friends, I think back to days like today when I realized that straighties are one-trick ponies and that my hair can do anything.

I apologize for being sappy but I can't help it 'cause I'm in love.
4a? Maybe. With some 3c too.

I like second day hair better than first
Usual routine is Elucence, Giovanni Direct, Fantasia IC.

I know what you mean. Sometimes I am amazed at how my hair grows.

Frizz Happens!

my Fotki hair journey/experiment diary PW is brio (and I really need to update it!)

3A hair; coloring with henna/indigo since July 2009; normally follow the CG method. Still searching for my HG products!

Oh yeah. Sometimes my hair amazes me. Yesterday, I was a passenger in a car that had all the windows open, speeds of 65 mph, on a very windy day. I thought that my hair would be a mess and was a little self-conscious, but then when I looked in the mirror, my hair was gorgeous! Only a little ruffled when I expected it to be a disaster! I love it when my hair surprises me like that and it made me think I need to raise my expectations when it comes to my hair. I just don't give it enough credit .
3B that is no longer CG, but still endeavors to have healthy hair by not using sulfates.
I almost always feel that way when its still wet! Its much more rare for it not to let me down and frizz like a mad tumbleweed as it dries. My hair and I are getting along much better these days though, so I think it may be the start of a beautiful friendship is like couples counselling for me and my hair!!!

But then again, too few to mention...
Sorry double post due to internet glitch!

Yay, I'm happy for you!

I am amazed or fascinated with my hair pretty regularly as well, especially lately. I've been really entertained by how I've started noticing quite a few tighter curls and the back has finally gotten curlier. And it's getting so long.
Mentioning the car w/ the windows down reminds me... I was in Myrtle Beach a few weeks ago and we rode around with the top down most of the time. Usually, I enjoy the beach bu hate what it does to my hair but that was when I was straightening or trying to control it more. Plus I was coloring so I had to worry about fading. This time I just let it go and survived hats, convertables, beach wind and a pool without freaking out on me. Then I spent most of this weekend out on the river and expected my hair to be a tangled mess. Actually, it just got curlier and has more volume. These are both big plusses for me.
My hair changes even thoughout the day and definitely from day to day and it's very interesting. I've also discovered that if I do straighten it now, it will actually stay that way. Unheard of!

On the other side, now that I'm loving the back of my hair, of course the front has to be a bit disagreeable. But such is life. :P
