|Frankly, I give up on mine. I know it was neat in March, but that's cos I straightened it very thoroughly first. I haven't got the motivation to go through that lark every day, or even every week!
Result: I look like Golliwog's sister. My mum keeps telling me I need to do something. Personally, the only thing that would work would be a close shave and a wig, but that might be a bit much.
Not much of a CS girl, am I?
|Three or four years until the next Harry Potter? I don't believe it Since the title has been announced, I thought the book might only take a year or so.|
|Well, I live in jeans. I've worn a skirt precisely three times this year.|
Oh, and I do NOT wear tights! I have long legs and a big butt and they cut me in half!
Pat = I have short legs and a big butt - if they make them wide enough the legs are twice as long as I need! If I ever find a pair to fit me I may be encouraged to wear a skirt, say about twice a year, but I can't.
|Humph. Be thankful you don't have to wear steel toe caps! It wouldn't be so bad if there wasn't a dress code, but steelies and smart trousers really do not look good.|
But Ellie, with your "deft fingers" and "French gift of adjustment" surely you could contrive to look "trig and trim"?
Or maybe not.

ITEMS ABOUT THE HAIR
An article too often called into action is the fine tooth comb. It invariably irritates the scalp, is the frequent cause of dandruff and acts in very much the same capacity as a rake would if applied to the head.
Once a month, or even once in six weeks is a short enough period to elapse between the "hair wash." Oftener than that may cause that dry look by removing the natural oil. The contents of two or more eggs put on the hair and well rubbed in is a wonderful cleanser and promotes the growth; also a lump of borax has the same effect, while
borax and salt combined have a very strengthening action. Leave the salt and borax in boiling water for at least five minutes before using.
Now is a time when the brush is not called into brisk action, for one of the worst things you could do would be to brush or in any way "meddle" with your hair when it is wet or even damp.
I can reply to that with one word - 'minging'!!!!!!!! (or possibly 'eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeuuuuuuuuuuuuuwwwwwwwwwww!!!')
|As for washing your hair with eggs - GROSS!! How bad would that smell?!|
There's borax in you....
|Strangely, I've never had the slightest desire to put icing sugar on my hair, I'm just wondering what happened? I can't imagie that you did it deliberately.|
|The voice of experience Jennie? Actually I have put Talc on my hair, but in my case it was an attempt to clean it in a hurry, when I didn't have time to wash it, back in the days when I was a lot younger than I am now.|
Does it work? My mind is busy boggling...
