Thank you, but I grew up with a Barber for a Father and in the 1970's Farrah Fawcett was in then. My hair was a fro and I could not buy a date! :rolleyes:

Oh wow, Anne, in the 70s I'd do anything it took to get a 'fro, like roll my hair with about 40 small sponge rollers, then slap a gigantic afro wig on top until my own hair dried and could be picked out. I thought it was the most wonderful hair style.

Everyone has such beautiful curls.

Brat, you could have been my hair twin in high school!! I saw your hair and I was like, OMG I used to have that hair! It's not quite as curly now, more wavy, but perhaps when it is that long again?

I'll be honest, I damp bun most of the time so I get loose waves instead of curls, because it is easier to pull back. But I *love* seeing all the beautiful curls, it is so inspiring!!

I'm a curly once a week on wash day. :D The rest of the time I'm more of a wavy, unless I do something special to revive the curls.

Lovely pictures all!
And GlassEyes, I haven't seen a pic of yours in a while. Your hair looks awesome! :thumbsup:

This is the latest pic I have - taken a month ago and previously posted in my blog. (Well, a two-in-one pic, same day, different lighting.)

Haha, thank you. Your's does too. That looks a lot different from the last photo I saw of your hair down. It looks good. : D


Also, I actually HAVE a back of the head photo of my hair a friend accidentally took, and I think it looks good, considering both THIS photo and the last I posted in this thread was my hair having survived a windy day in Boston AND going through a +30 humidity Butterfly Garden in which both my hair and a friend's grew, and THEN being flattened against a train booth. xD;

Wow! What an awesome color. :) I don't think I've ever seen such awesome curls with white mixed in. :D Thanks, BlackfootHair. That really cheered me up. :) I think I've come to the realization that if I want shiny curls consistently, I am going to need to use a clear glaze every 4-6 weeks since my gray/white hair doesn't shine so well on its own.

I've never heard of a clear glaze. Please tell me more! It's not a "natural" product by any means, but from what I've read and experienced, it's more gentle on the hair versus other brands of dyes/glazes. It's called Robert Craig Clear (http://robertcraig.com/store/product48.html). It looks yellow in the hair swatch pictured, but it really is *clear*. I've got the white hair that stayed white after using it, to prove that. A lot of curlies at naturallycurly.com have used the Clear and/or the colors. It was either there or on the old (pre-crash of 2008 ) LHC that I'd heard about it to begin with.

I only have experience with permanent Goldwell color from my HD at the salon, and clear glazes that she used on me prior to my using RC Clear. First of all, a box of RC Clear is $10 plus shipping vs. the $20-30 my HD was charging me for another brand of clear glaze. Second, my hair feels like normal hair immediately after using the RC Clear -- actually it feels like smoother normal hair (for me), which is even better :D . With my HD's glazes or permanent color, my hair felt either like wet Saran Wrap in the shower for a day or so after treatment, or just very very delicate after it dried. So IME, RC Clear gets points for both of those factors.

In my first order of RC Clear, I got 2 boxes because I wasn't sure how much product it would make for applying to my hair. On my shoulder-length when dry hair, one box was all I needed and I was very generous with the amount I used (I still had plenty with one box). Now that I've used up both of the boxes, I am going to order a few more to have on hand and save on shipping.

It's funny, my hair is thick and kinky, but it has more of an 's' pattern than a spiral...
