Well, I need some recommendations from you. I have fine hair, but a lot of it. This usually means that I keep my hair short in an effort to cut down on my getting ready time. However, I'm tired of having short hair so I've been growing it out for several months. I've made good progress but need some help. Like I said, while I don't have thick hair, I have a lot of hair and it takes forever to dry it. Since it's been longer, I've been finding myself letting it air dry and putting it in a ponytail or clippy. But, I don't always want do that. I'd like to dry it and give it a little style, too. Up until this weekend, I'd been using a round brush to dry and style my hair at the same time. While it works and gives me the body I'd like, it takes forever and I'm a sweaty mess by the end of it. So much for my shower, huh! While in Chicago, I used Mia's straightener and really liked it. The only thing I missed was the body I got from round brushing it.
So, here's what I'm asking. Do you have any suggestions on a good root lifter? And a reasonably priced straightener? And maybe a style that would work for my face shape and hair type?
Please excuse the weird lighting. This is me with hair partially dried with the hair dryer and finishing up by air drying. And go with your suggestions :)
