Hair by Alex

Alex is not my hairdresser. Alex is the hurricane that was in the gulf today. Alex has sent all kinds of rain flying all over the place, including my house, and I had to go to the grocery store today. That also explains the spots all over my shirt.
Unlike 99.9% of all women and probably many men, I love my hair after being in the rain. I've tried to recreate it with a mister or sticking my head in a shower, but nothing can style my hair like Mother Nature.
I have naturally curly hair but if I let it dry naturally in the Texas dryness, parts of it straighten out or bits and sections go all haywire. My hair always looks better after I've been caught in the rain than it did when I left the house. I wish I could figure out how that works.

Gee, I agree with you! That is the cutest hair ever and a superb picture of you! I use to pay to get my hair done like that, but I had to get a perm and for the first few weeks it was too frizzy, then the last few weeks it grew out funny, so for about 1 month I would have great hair.

I have the picture of you at the state Fair on my phone, but I'm stealing this and using it now instead! Thanks in advance! :D

~~You're so sweet! What I didn't mention though was that after my haor dried completely it was a giant fuzzy mop. I just get that one little rain window.

Love it. Yep. Rain does it for you.

Great hair -- mine is always better after the rain, too. I think it's because of the way the water hits more gently than the shower and the fact that the wind sort of dries it at the same time as the rain is wetting it. I've never been able to recreate that either
