(Envy! - Just kidding) Well, I would never ask someone for their hair - but thank-you, you are the first to offer. Don't make that suggestion around my mom though, I fear she would ponder it and say yes (her hair is paper thin, and after each of us was born it got progressively thinner) Some days though, I do want to go all "Dolly Parton" and secretly wish for a bunch of gorgeous, thick wigs to pick and choose from

You are sooooo helpful Jkath, that's awesome! Those were the same type that I thought Alix had meant (lol, just wasn't sure how to describe them properly), and now I know the exact kind that you were refering to. With all this help I'll hopefully be well on my way to curls soon

I don't remember mom using rag curls with us. We had Shirley Temple curls until we were old enough to fuss, then pigtails, then pony tails.When we visited our grandmother, she did our hair in French braids and we thought we were really special. Mom dressed us not in matching clothes, but our coats and hats were all the same style, but different colors. I remember once when we went to see Santa, we were in the line and a lady behind us asked my mom "Where are they giving away those cute hats?" My mom was livid.

by Shirley Temple curls, do you mean pin curls? Those are so hard to do, but give such a gorgeous wave!

No, Shirley Temple curls were rolled up and down on rollers and combed out one at a time and hung in curls. We always had to sleep in rollers on Saturday night so our hair would be done for Sunday.
