given up on straighteners permanently esp when every time i go out the door it's blardy raining.

must have survived before straighteners, don't look that bad in old photos....

We've just got back from Portugal -I didn't take my straighteners and, do you know what, it was liberating!

Its not as though I even straighten it that much usually -I don't like the ironed hair look, I just like to take the waves out a bit.

DP said he preferred the tousled look too.

What is it with all these women with gorgeous curls straightening them?? You're so lucky...ringlets indeed envy

Mines always been dead straight. Curls are much more interesting and softer.

t my wedding recently one of the gents there commented how boring it was these\days with all women straightening their hair..he said it was lovely to see girls with wavy, curly, flicky or just plain natural hair....

In spain I didn't use my straigtners once. But somehow in holiday attire with sunkissed skin it works.

In my office with my trouser suit it would not.

My hair is hideous when I haven't attacked them with straightners.
Its only chin length so unstraightened it springs up around my ears and I look like maggie thatcher.

If its longer then chin length I get a wierd haze of unruley hair surrounding my head. Most of it lays flat/wavy the rest stands on end defying lows of gravity.

Live by the straightners die by the straigteners is my motto.

I'm gradually growing mine a bit longer. I went to the hairdressers last week and she asked how I was coping with it a bit longer, and I was completely flummoxed as I'd done nothing with it for the past 4 weeks because we'd been on holiday and it was always just 'wash and go'!

Beetroot Tue 26-Aug-08 16:56:29

lol at ahirdresser asking how you are coping with it!

Quite bad but I usually tie it up.

If I let it dry naturally it bushes out on the bottom while sticking firmly down on the top and I look like a big triangle head.

Mine was terrible all weekend, barely saw a brusha nd realised when I looke din the mirror in the car on the way homethat it was the first mirror I had looked at for 4 days!
