Fastbreaking News Story!

Darkness fell over the city of Syracuse, NY early this morning as a mysterious haze filled the sky blocking all light from the sun. Though some believed the abrupt change in the atmosphere was due to an early morning thunderstorm the actual source was traced to the Farmers' Market where artist Nancy Schindler's hair had frizzed to gigantic proportions. It was for occasions like this that the phrase "you have to see it to believe it" was coined. The high humidity mixed with heat and wind caused Schindler's naturally curly hair to grow in such a manner that people were frozen with both awe and fear. One family of six sought shelter from the rain under the fluffy canopy while others ran from the scene in horror. When asked about the event witnesses exclaimed "It was freakishly huge!" and "My eyes! My eyes!"
Thankfully there was an end to the nightmare when Meg, from Wake Robin Farm, in true dairy princess style, gave a hat to Schindler who quickly contained the situation. Before long the market returned to normal. No injuries were reported.

Ha! Well, I already know what it looked like. Remember Sis, I have the same hair - only shorter. It's a family tradition going back to Grandma.

What? No picture of the must-see-to-believe hair? No fun!

BTW, I love Devachan products to tame my frizzies into manageable curls. Apply to soaking wet hair and don't touch until bone dry!
