Oh, Philo, you're already our token Microsoft (MSFT) Guy. But if you want to participate in the other groups, fine by me. I'm the token moderate, after all.

Oh right. Okay, in that case then you're the late 20s know-it-all, and I'm the early-30s know-it-all. Simon is the late-70s know-it-all.

Heh - I just get my girlfriend to straighten mine occasionally, as her straighteners actually work. Mine are hopeless, I have hair like corkscrew cheesewire though.

I hate having curly hair, so I attack it with noxious chemicals every few months and give it the once over with my straightening irons every week or so; the chemicals do quite a bit of damage so I have to ponce about with all manner of gunk to keep it healthy, but although I suspect all the "science" on the shampoo adverts is rubbish they *do* actually work. My hair is soft, shiny, and healthy looking! :D

Hmmm. I've never taken the plunge with chemical straighteners, and my girlfriend would actually kill me anyway. She doesn't mind now and again, but I think she quite likes the curls... I also have a relative who chickened out halfway through a lightening dye job, and ended up with orange hair. And I do mean orange, he looked like a Sellafield carrot. Quite embarassing, as he had a senior job at the Inland Revenue, not famed for their flamboyant style... Since seeing what happened to him, I'm hesitant to go for anything stronger than good shampoo near my hair...

Wow.

My hair is so straight it took an entire summer with enough hairspray to make it crunch just to get it to take a proper part on one side. I haven't changed my hairstyle since, except once when I let it grow really long, then whacked it back to normal length. Too much work.
