If my wife were writing this it might be considered a complaint about living in Florida, but I find it amusing.

Ladies beware!

Sometimes it gets so humid in SW Florida that my wife's hair goes poof into an instant afro.

I'm just trying to do my part to better inform you about Florida.

You are so funny once again...but it's true. The humidity sometimes makes hair stand on end! :-)

I'm really enjoying your posts today, james, and I can relate to the company and the hair problems. My hair is always in a ponytail or a large clip anymore. Can't remember the last time I wore it down.

Ya know.... when I lived up north I use to think my hair looked great the minute the plane landed in Florida. It depends where you're coming from. If you're used to dried out hair with static electricity running through it from heating systems, then a Florida do can look pretty good.

I actually prefer the water in the air and what it does to my hair. It looks far better. Just scrunch it up and it looks fine. I know that is not true for everyone but I have no problem with it.

I wish I would have known that secret when I lived in Florida. I have very curly hair but sometimes I try to blow it out straight. Well that only works when there is little humidity. So you can just imagine how that worked out for me in Florida!! Bad hair days.

And if you have straight fine hair like myself and try to style it, once you walk outside your hair just flattens out. Unless, I use tones of product. When ever we are in Colorado, my hair loves it.
