I'm thinking of distracting myself with some new hair. With the exception of of my ill-advised 'Rachel' from the mid-nineties, and a very short, ear-length bob in grad school, I've always had parted in the middle, long, long hair. It's so easy to care for and I pretty much do nothing to it. It's really wash and go.

I'm wondering if there's anything else I can do though - I don't have much time for styling in the morning and due to my hair's straw-like texture, I can't blow dry it or iron it. Does anyone have any ideas on low-maintenance haircutes? (that was a typo but I'm keeping it) I've got super dry half-straight-half-wavy hair that doesn't make its mind up.
