Remember when Elaine on Seinfeld had those big curls and a chin-length cut (towards the end of the show)? I'm thinking of getting that style. My hair is wavy. Wavy hair sucks--not quite straight, not quite curly.
or soft curly hair? I have wavy hair and have become a big fan of the shine and anti frizz products, my hair looks much sleeker and doesn't get all tangled and fuzzy looking half way though the day.
I wore the most fabulous silk and linen pants and a silk blouse yesterday. It was nine thousand degrees out and I was all cool calm and collected looking then I got home and realized I had gotten little flecks of pasta sauce on the blouse and pants and will have to dry clean them. When will I learn not to eat spaghetti when I am wearing fabu dry clean onlies?
Frizz-Ease = God. And works for curly or straight.
I'm developing a meaningful relationship with my new straightening iron, partly because straightening takes me 10 minutes, whereas curling takes me 45. (The hair on the top of my head doesn't want to curl at all -- the ends do a charming spontaneously curly thing that looks retarded attached to six inches of almost-straight hair.)
Erin, I don't want it to be big, I want the curls to be big. Think of Elaine's hair at the first of the show--that's what I don't want. But towards the end, she had a perm and the curls were really big and soft.
Debby, my hair tends to frizz, too. What products are you using?
I've tried to straighten mine, but I'm just not willing to put that much effort into it every day.
Where did you guys get the frizz-ease?
I used it on Simon's hair once, and it completely plastered down and straightened his hair, until it dried, and then he just had really, really smoothed out waves. I'm guessing he doesn't really "need" it.
I use Finisheen for shine. It works exceptionally well for my hair--but my hair is curly and very dark brown.
I'm having fantasies about having long, glamourous hair with highlights and so forth. Talk me down, someone.
There are a zillion knock-offs too, if the Frieda's too spendy or they don't have it. Just make sure it's mostly silicone, and it will do the job.
Debby, you could breathe/not faint in the silk/linen blend? That's what my current Very Dressed-Up Shirt is made of, and my mother is telling me that if I wear it to her wedding (August, Connecticut) I will fall over dead.
I'm going to hit the sales this afternoon to look for something lighter, but I like my Very Dressed-Up Shirt, and besides, it was $$$ enough already.
Oh, sorry about the pasta sauce.
I would really like to find some lovely silky flowy pants to wear to a wedding in a couple of weeks (along with a lovely gossamer shirt I got recently and have yet to wear), but I haven't seen anything. Where did you buy yours, debby?
