My hair is big. And red.
I like it a lot, except when it is humid outside.
It can be straightened (only with a CHI), but I hardly make the effort. I have been cutting it myself for over a year now, maybe two, because I don't trust stylists and I am too cheap. I think I finally have the layer thing down.
It can only be tamed with copious amounts of mousse; and very few brands carry the right formula (the secret: Herbal Essences, orange bottle). I can give up as many chemical products as possible, but I can't imagine giving up the mousse addiction. It took me 17 years to figure it out.
In the dry air of the central west the curls relax and look almost perfect, which might be the main reason I don't want to leave this region.
