Ok so Ive often seen a few posts here about people with stick straight hair who want some curls. I get so frustrated because all Ive ever wanted is straight hair but unfortunately God gave me thick, curly hair that takes an hour to straighten (no its not my straightener ). Does anyone know of some techniques/products that will help me straighten my hair faster but does not require using a lot of product so that my hair feels disgusting? Also, I play volleyball and when I put my hair up (when its curly) about 15 minutes in a game my hair goes POOF!!! Not very attractive. Any suggestions? Last thing I swear- I normally wear my hair in a simple ponytail/bun everyday because I dont want to spend an hour everyday straigtening my hair. Are there any other options I could consider? So sorry this is long but Im fed up with my hair!
