My hair is super fine. Not as in like "Oh, I'm so FINE", but as in thin strands. I have been told by numerous hairdressers that my hair isn't really "thin" just "fine". Whatever you wanna call it, it's NOT very thick!
I have a lot of natural wave/curl. SOOOOO, I can't just wear it totally natural limp without it looking like some kinda mess. It's as if half of it wants to look straight and the other half wants to look curly. SO I have to, and I do mean HAVE TO either straighten it or gel it curly. I like having the option of two totally different hair styles, but it'd be nice to just be able to wear it without doing a cotton-pickin' thing to it. I don't have that luxury.
But back to my point ---- in the winter time, it seems to go totally fly-away if I straighten it! What makes it worse is that I'm always cold, so I turn on my little office heater at work which zaps all of the moisture from the room, thus making my hair even more limp... and full of static!
So in the summer, I tend to wear it straighter more often.... like this (Friday):

And in the winter, I tend to wear it curly more often.... like this (Sunday):
