Rosie the Riveter, or "My Life With Curly Hair"

I miss it. I really do.



For those of you who may be questioning this, I do NOT have curly hair. At all. And my hair does not normally hold curl well.



So, Thursday night Amy came over to put spongy rollers in my hair, it took about an hour and a half from start to finish. The result the next morning was something resembling Little Orphan Annie. Not bad, but not what I wanted. So I spent the morning finger combing my hair to see if it would loosen up a little. The result is the picture from the previous post. That lasted most of the day. I did have to do some touch ups before my party that night. Oh, and it turns out I DO own a curling iron, but it is a 1/4" one. So it makes very little curls. I was also reminded of why I do not curl my hair by myself. CURLING IRONS ARE USELESS!! They look good at the beginning, and then, nothing. Oh well. I kept the curl til Sunday after dinner. And I was sad to see it go.



When I woke up this morning and saw my flat, straight hair. It made me sad inside. And it made me want to cut and/or dye my hair soon. Maybe a perm. Maybe not.













My hair is boring.

I loved your curly hair, too! But your hair never did take to curls.

My hair is boring too. All the girls in my ward are chopping theirs off and it's quite tempting to follow the crowd on that one...

i agree that perming is not the answer, and i just did it so take my advice. just get the sponge rollers and make amy come over every couple nights, or have her teach nik how to do it... that would be fun!

Sponge rollers were the only thing that worked to curl Star's hair when we were kids. My Mom actually permed it twice when we were young, only to have it be bone straight two days later again. Curling irons didn't work for Star either, just the sponge rollers. I'm thinkin' you may just have to do what Vivian said and have Nik taught how to do it for you.
