I have long hair, and in the summer, I want nothing more than to get it UP and OFF my neck!
To get it up and out of my way, I twirl and twist it and clamp it on the back of my head. When my hair eventually dries, I release the clamp, and I have a nice wavy head of hair (even if it's fine and thin!).
As I sit here tonight, the ceiling fan is blowing my hair around, and while I might not reach Misery Chastain status, I've got some tendrils blowing around very nicely. I envision myself standing on a heather-filled hill, the warm breeze blowing my tresses and rippling my diaphanous gown....
I'll just enjoy the "flowing tresses" for the moment!
