    Will have to ponder my bravery, the issue is really more what the city is doing to my skin. Having awkward, teen-years flashbacks.

    Be bold! (ie: hold the card up over your face.) -M

    the city’s not doing much, but I dyed it magenta.

    I like the Inception/black hole thing you’ve got going on your iPhone there.

    My city isn’t doing much to my hair, but I am growing it out for Locks of Love. Here’s what it looked like four inches ago (in a demo of the heatless overnight hair curling technique): https://plus.google.com/photos/106038636409532342035/albums/5661352218946175889

    My flatiron? No match for the humidity of the south in the summer.

  • Leah Says:

    Hawaii is doing great things for my hair. Maybe that’s because it is normally stock straight with no volume. I really love it and will be sad to leave; my home has some humidity, but the higher heat kills any benefits.

    Also, we did the night manta snorkel. AMAZING!!! Thank you for the final push I needed to go for it.

    @#5 Holy cow. Viginia Woolf has a love child with Elizabeth Siddal and there you are, in all your pre-Raphaelite/Bloomsbury authorship glory.

    (Minus the laudanum/ chronic suicidal depression)

    It’s a great look.

    And I am jealous.

    In the immortal words of Drake, “Sweat pants, hair tied, chillin’ with no make up on, that’s when
    you’re the prettiest, I hope that ya don’t take it wrong!”

    Raleigh brought out my curls. Haven’t touched a hair dryer in a year.

  • Kathy Says:

    Pretty much the same thing Hawaii did to yours: I live in central Florida! My hair is completely different here (and not in a good way) from what it was like when I was growing up in California. One of the many reasons I would love to move back!

    St. Louis is teaching me all about how to have better hair with hard water and without the harsh chemicals in shampoo and conditioner! I now wash my hair with baking soda I’ve dissolved into boiled water (with a drop of each peppermint oil and honey added to the mix) and condition with lemon juice, white vinegar, and lavender essential oil diluted in filtered cold water.

    The results are at best “meh” and at worst “where’d I put my shampoo” with my regular hard water (the mineral deposits allow for scummy buildup and keep the good stuff from dissolving), but since I’ve gotten the balance and prep down, I’ve never been so happy with my hair.

    My hair, once poufy and frizzy, is now soft, slightly lightened, and behaves, even in hot and humid weather. I haven’t used hair product (other than a little hairspray to hold bangs back in an updo once or twice) or conventional shampoo/conditioner since the end of March. LOVE IT.

    I can wear it curly or straight.

    My hair is big and curly. I’ve lived in Maryland and the surrounding areas my entire life (27 years)… in 45 days, I leave with my boyfriend to move to Orlando, Florida. And though I’m incredibly excited… I am DREADING what is going to happen to my beautiful curly hair that took me 18 years to learn how to control..
    My bff keeps saying that I’m going to be Monica from Friends when her hair is crazy and she has to put it in dreads. Dreads aren’t sounding like a horrible idea…
    So yea. I’m sure that Orlando will be doing horrible horrible things to my hair. If I remember, I’ll come back and post pictures ;)

    Speaking of hair, I’ve been meaning to ask: this is you, right?
