We do!

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.

This is the third place I've posted this on the 'net today, but I texturized my hair to loosen up the curl, and it looks awesome! Kinda like tight and ripply waves.

You want big, curly hair Susanne?

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?

debby, don't know about Susanne, but I personally want soft and curly. I use that frizz-ease goop to help tame it, but it wasn't working as well when my hair would start to grow out.

What Tiny Frogs.

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.)

ErinPooh -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 01:58:29 PM -- 6 of 23467

Do the caucasian women here use chemical straighteners on their hair? I have always seen these kits at Walgreen's and have always wondered if people really use them.

Violet -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 02:02:04 PM -- 7 of 23467
What Tiny Frogs.

Not me. Conditioners and creams and gels and unguents and the hair iron. I suppose might, if my hair was curlier and I realy hated it, but I haven't really looked into it.

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?

Violet -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 02:02:46 PM -- 9 of 23467
What Tiny Frogs.

Drugstore. John Frieda makes the Frizz-Ease line.

ErinPooh -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 02:04:34 PM -- 10 of 23467

Yeah, Walgreen's.

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.

Violet -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 02:06:00 PM -- 11 of 23467
What Tiny Frogs.

really, really smoothed out waves

Yes. I can get a sort of 40s "set" waves effect if I use a fair amount of it and blow-dry.

debby -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 03:11:55 PM -- 12 of 23467
lighten up

I just use any one of a varity of things that say anti frizz and or shine, I put a dab in when its wet and either blow dry or air dry it and viola sleeker hair.

ErinPooh -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 03:16:59 PM -- 13 of 23467

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.

debby -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 03:19:54 PM -- 15 of 23467

No the silk/linen was light as air and cool, but they were very light weight fabrics, I imagine you could use the same materials to make a heavier fabric.

This is fairly airy stuff, but long-sleeved.

Nancy T. -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 03:57:29 PM -- 17 of 23467
We bloviate on a whole lot of different subjects. We might as well bloviate on this.

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?

Nancy, did you look at Chico's?

debby -- Monday, July 15, 2002 -- 04:13:54 PM -- 19 of 23467

I got mine at Lord and taylor, I think they were Kate Hill.

No! I'll try that.

Edit - Chico's, that is. No Lord & Taylor around these parts.
