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?

My frizz is part of my identity. In my department I'm the older short female prof with the frizzy hair. As in, "I need to pity this in my professor's mailbox." The secretaries ask, "Who is your professor?" "Well, I don't remember her name, but she's my grandma' sage, short, with frizzy hair." If I straightened my hair, I'd never get my mail.

Ummm..ok. How about..."Well, I don't remember her name but she's my grandma's age, short, and used to have frizzy hair." or "Well, I don't remember her name but she's my grandma's age, short, and has straight hair." lololol

There are other short, old, straight-haired profs. I'm the one with frizzy hair.

"Here's a good example of frizz vs. curl." ----- They do look different, but lots of people have curly hair that naturally does the frizzy thing.

"Oh no, that is frizz. lol. Not sure if you ever saw that episode but she was in Barbados and her hair just kept getting bigger and bigger with frizz from the humidity." -------- No, although I have seen a lot of Friends episodes, I missed that one. Mine gets very big (but not frizzy) if I blow-dry it, so I avoid that.

That is one of the best Friends episodes. If you get a chance, check it out Laughing

Since I can't even recognize frizz, I obviously don't notice this particular "defect" in other people's hair. I do notice roots and really obvious highlights.

I would agree that the anti-frizz business is booming--because it is the fashion not really because frizzy or curly hair is unattractive.  So many girls are constantly straightening their long hair, because that's how everyone else looks and they want to fit in.  To me it looks like throwback 70's.
