Looks fun - on her.
Too heavy and "busy" for me!
the lighter and spork - i totally agree, I don't think I will go there. But the overall concept, i like.

I even straightened it beforehand, thinking it's be easier to manage, but it didn't take long to become completely unmanageable and it stayed in a braid the entire time. My mother has the same type of hair and she attempted to wash hers, but that was a disaster as well; our hair is so thick that her hair just stayed muddy. So, what is our solution? Braids! Before the event I braid a ton of small braids into my hair. It's great because on the playa I can still do any hairstyle I like- ponytail or etc. - without worrying about it turning into a big clumpy mess.

As you can see I did get some fuzz going on toward the end of the week, but it's not too bad and I wear hats most of the time anyway. : )
What "leave-in conditioner" do you use? I have waist length hair and am looking for a good product.

I have extremely thick, curly hair, too, and DON'T want dreads, but am worried they'll happen in about 4 seconds on the Playa. Did you do those tiny braids yourself, or did someone do them for you? How hard were they to get out afterward?
Oh--and were you with the Neverwas Haul? That is my favorite vehicle EVER. So beautiful!
