It is FINALLY warm by me Laughing

1. Do you have allergies to pollen? What are your symptoms?

2. Did you do anything fun for Mother's Day?

3. When it is humid, does your hair go straight or frizz up?

People with straight hair get perms to get curls.

People with curly hair straighen theirs to get rid of the curls.

DD3 has always had very curly hair.  She went through streaks of straightening it,  mostly throughout high school and intermitingly in college.  Now for the most part she leave it natural.

DD1 has always had straight hair, would not even keep a curl.  She has had two perms that lasted about 2 days.  After chemo her hair came back wavy.  Having had straight hair for 30 years she is not sure what to do with it.

I had short hair in high school, that was the early 1980s but I remember big hair in 1982 around prom time. When I think of 1990s I think of the Rachel cut (from friends).

I wonder if you would notice the difference b/w artificial hair dye and pigmentation that looks like dye, rollmops. It's odd to me you would pick up more on dye more than frizz.

I think permanents were a generational thing too, My mother's hair wasn't thin but it was thick and coarse and she always got perms which helped maintain it I guess.

If my grandmothers' stories are to be believed, the trend in the 70s was a throwback to the 20s.  There's really nothing new in fashion.

Most fashion styles are recycled from years ago.

"I wonder if you would notice the difference b/w artificial hair dye and pigmentation that looks like dye, rollmops. It's odd to me you would pick up more on dye more than frizz." ------- Dyed hair tends to have a flat effect. Real color usually has more play in it. I get that what I happen to notice is odd to you, but there isn't much I can do about that. What you guys are calling frizzy just looks kinky to me, and I have never found kinky hair particularly note-worthy one way or the other.

One would know if you knew what hairstyles were like in the 1970's generally.  Like GH said, think Marcia Brady.

Why would it be odd?  Differences are beautiful, I thought you got that?  RM grew up in a diffferrent culture than us.  But even us Americans can be quite different from eachother.  And you are saying that some people have hair color (you mention pigmentation) that looks like a dyed color?  I don't think I noticed dyed hair as much as I would bad roots, bad hair dye jobs etc.  People who think they should be platinum/bleach blond...most of us shouldn't!  It's too far from our natural color.

"RM grew up in a diffferrent culture than us." ------ Come to think of it, in the homeland, most people have very fine, limp hair. Probably frizz is not a common thing.

Dyed hair tends to have a flat effect.---not true. It all depends on what you use on your hair. 

THIS is Kinky hair, NOT frizzy
