- My hair is only shoulder length, but I do something similar to what
you described- I was kind of hoping to avoid having to pin it all the
time, but it sounds like that may have been the period way.
I'll definately try your suggestion about not shampooing my hair for
a day or so. Since I use crochet cotton rather than silk or
synthetic (as I would if it were netting, but I use sprang for my
headcoverings), it might work.
