Well, I took my friend Aubrey's advice, and decided to go for it on the whole featherlocks thing.
I really like them. I can wash, condition, blow dry, curl or straighten them along with the rest of my hair.
I like how they can blend in or stand out. When I straighten my hair they tend to be more noticeable than when I let it air dry curlyish and pin part of it back.
But I really do like them--they are fun!
I'm glad I stepped out of my comfort zone just a bit. :-) Now maybe I should branch out a bit in the wardrobe department and wear something other than jeans and sweatshirts!?
