Ummm... no.

I am definitely not a curly girl.

Wavy, yes.

But who said I wanted to be a wavy girl? My hair didn't look so bad Monday in the picture below. But yesterday and today were quite another story. My hair was all stringy-looking and unkempt. Perhaps if my hair was longer (and didn't need to be trimmed ; ) ) it might be a different story. The good news is that I can always try again another time.

I'll give the book a look-through, and see if I've been missing something. Who knows, I might try again next week and let you see it Monday. Any of you who've tried the program-- should I be giving up now? Is this normal? Should I stick it out?

And Hannah, trust me- you don't want to see what it looks like brushed out! : ) I'll see if I can get a picture of it to show you, but I've already blown my hair straight again and curled it under today... (don't tell Lorraine Massey!)

You used a blow drier?!? You should be ashamed!! Lorraine Massey would never put up with that! ;-)
I'm not really a curly girl either - more of a wavy girl. I got the book out of the library and really didn't like all the suggestions she had for bringing the curl out of your hair. I've tried a few things, like not brushing it at all, using very little shampoo, leaving my hair in conditioner for a day, etc, but I didn't really like anything and it all seemed like too much work. Especially when she started talking about washing hair every day (that gets to be too much of a bother with waiste-length hair) and scrunching individual curls... that was way more than I wanted to do!
How often do you wash your hair? Was your hair stringy-looking because you hadn't washed it in a couple days? I typically wash my hair every three days. The first day after I wash it, I usually won't brush it (except right after I get out of the shower) and it'll be wavy/curly. But then that night or the next morning I'll brush it because by then it's very unkempt looking and most of the curl has gone out of it. So, I'm only a 'curly girl' every three days or so. :-)
Anyway, I'm sure that wasn't really helpful since I never really stuck with much that Lorraine Massey suggested either.
