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?

Yes, and Friends started in 1994 so probably closer to 2000. 

"Commercial hair straighteners were not readily available on the market for women to buy until the 1990s"

Yes back then some girls flat ironed it.  I'm sure now there are 500% more options for straightening hair.  I'm commenting on how the fashion is long straight hair, (with frizz in either decade tamed to the best of their ability), no bangs, it looks like a page out of a 70's yearbook, for awhile there.

I do too.

Some girls used a regular iron on their hair, way back when.  I'm not sure what your point is.  Rachel's haircut might have been the turning point in big hair to more straight and sleek.  I'm not sure of the timeline, not going to research that either!

"Nope, that is curly. Curly doesn't have to be frizzy." ------ Oh, ok. Still not really sure what the big difference is, but that's ok.

Well like in the picture above of the red curly hair, on the right, the curls curve sleekly in turns or ringlets.  And on the right they still turn in curls but more in a fuzzy, many hairs going a slightly different way kind of curly.  And a lot of girls & women with nice curly hair, if they brushed through their hair when it was dry, it would end up looking like the one on their left.

But I don't think I would notice or think "frizz alert!" if I saw the one on the left walking down the street. When my hair was long, it could only be brushed when dry. Even at the chin length it has now, it can be difficult to brush when wet.

The uploader has not made this video available in your country.

Nevermind, found it when I searched.

LOL, maybe most of us judgey American women would notice.  Or just be glad it wasn't our hair.  : )
