    My hair in its natural state, tends to go porcupine (see left image), hence I use a lot of product to give it a more tamed look resembling the right image. I gave up on texturizing perms, because a)have to grow my hair out for months so that it's long enough to fit in the rollers, only to have it cut short; b)they tend to curl it in an unflattering/feminine way; c) the perms last about 4 weeks with my desired hair length

    I've been having breakfast with a few key sections of hair curled in pipe cleaners after the morning shower, and blow-dry when i'm in a hurry. But now that I'm regularly dating someone and sometimes waking up with them, I have to ditch this bizarre routine, and come up with a better solution (other than never showering with them around)...?

    My hair tends to just spike as well, kind of annoying since I prefer to keep it short. Damn Asian hair genes.

    Just wear a beanie or hat for a little bit, that's what I do. You could wear a beanie to sleep, which I've done before and it works. icon_lol.gif

    Couldn't you take a matte finish hair product and instead of combing it just "crush" the hair in on itself? It would have a sort of messy curl look I'd think.

    How odd. I have exactly the opposite problem.

    My mother had thick straight hair, my dad thick wavy hair. My sister and I, not adopted, have always had super soft-to-the-touch fine hair, hers straight, mine curly in my teens, then wavy in my 20s and now almost straight, which lies flat. That change in curl sounds strange but my dad's thick hair grew naturally curly until he was in his early 70s, and then suddenly stayed thick but grew straight.

    Nobody's happy with what they have. Except maybe once JFK Jr.
