The girls here used TINY little clear elastic bands - like rubber bands only clear so that you don't see them. Homecoming was last weekend, and there were several hairstyles like what you are describing. Also, I asked my sister in law, the hair stylist, and that is what she recommends.Originally Posted by veejer
That sounds like what she was talking about. Thanks.Originally Posted by Ana Bannana
Lucy, our drugstore has a fairly large hair do-dads section and I'm heading there with her shortly.
Pom!!!! Thanks for the laugh, that sounds like something her dad would suggest too!!!

I got some of the clear hair bands and practiced on her while we watched Survivor. The twisting wasn't going so great, so then I tried narrow french braids. About 3/4 " wide looked great. I wet down her baby fine hair first.
I was just wondering with taking alot of cold showers lately(Thanks alot Wilma.) is it good for my hair?
Any advice is appreciated.

Okay, this is what my hairdresser told me. I don't know if he's full of it or not. He said that if you take a cold shower after you condition, that it "closes off" the hair follicle and makes it shinier. I guess that's a good thing.

If I remember correctly, it is good to rinse your hair with cold water just before getting out of the shower. This smooths the hair follicles and helps seal the hair against damage. I'm pretty sure you don't have to use cold water the whole way through, just as you are finishing up. If you dry your hair, it is good to have a blow dryer with a cold option. Start drying your hair at a warm temp, but then switch to cold towards the end and your hair should be smoother and shinier. Anyway, that's just what I remember, I'm sorry if some of the details are wrong.
I also heard that if you rinse it quickly with cold water at the very end, it will make your hair shinier (read this back in Seventeen when I was in high school).Originally Posted by starlette01350
