Caught up on LJ for the first time in ages yaaaaay.
Bathroom is not clean. Booo, bathroom, clean yourself.
Have been watching YouTube hair videos again. Uhoh. YouTube has neat videos for way too many things.
I HAD NO IDEA THAT "SOCK CURLS" EXISTED. This is awesome for Reasons:
Not using heat for curls is great for hair.
The Sock Monster likes to steal socks from poor, laundry-doing people.
The Sock Monster wickedly enjoys breaking up pairs of socks. This mystery has not been solved.
Sock Curls takes advantage of these poor, broken-hearted socks by putting them to good use and allowing them to socialise in one's hair--perhaps even over night!
(Oooh la la, socks playing footsie. I'm such a weirdo.)
When one wears the socks for sock curls, one looks a bit like the Sock Monster oneself.
That's a pretty impressive feat.
They look awesome.
Also learned about some other neat ways to curl/wave/crimp other than the regular English braid/French braid/Dutch braid down the bag or in pigtails: snake braids (not super fond since they involve going against-the-grain of hair, like less-intensive teasing); t-shirt curls (using strips of cut up t-shirt--perk of looking pretty punky during the wait time); baby wipe curls (similar but using rolled up baby wipes instead), pen/pencil/marker curls (which are adorable). Straightening my hair would require heat anyway, so if I can not use heat and just accentuate the natural desires of my hair...that'd be great. :D Especially if it doesn't take me ages since I'm lazy.
I've wanted to try things to get my curls looking more consistent, especially since it otherwise takes my hair up to 24 hours to dry in the post-shower braid and if I unbraid before it's completely dry I end up like a poofball Hermione.
I am jealous of any and all of you who have hair that does not frizz.
That is all. This evening I've been a hair girly-girl and also eaten frozen graps with chocolate or Nutella, all of which is happy-making. Tomorrow I'm doing the horses again, probably the bathrooms, and if my brother is up to it I'll be helping him with the gutters (holding the ladders).
