Okay, I know that was a really wierd topic line, but I had two things on my mind and neither seemed important enough to stand on its own so I thought I'd combine them. THey have no relation to eachother, except they both came up today.
First: Toe Socks
Do you like them and if so, why or why not? I was putting them on today and I'm never sure if I like them or what. I love the fact that they have stripy patterns, and they're interesting socks, there aren't that many interessting socks out there.
Second: Hair Static
Occasionally it gets really dry and my hair gets really staticky(I have no idea if that's a word, or how to spell it). I've got Static Guard for my clothes, but what stops hair from clinging to things, like my face or my hairbrush? I was thinking gel maybe, or perhaps more conditioner? I have no clue.
As you all can probably tell I'm a little scattered today , answer one, or another of these if you want Thanks
Toe socks are fun . It's a pain in the butt to put them back on after gym class, though.
I haven't had any real static problems since I started using a leave in conditioner, and a regular rinse out conditioner on top of that. But if you have oily hair, 2 conditioners probably isn't a good idea. Or why not cut it all off !?
Plus, they make me feel very nostalgic, since they first came into vogue in my childhood. PLUS, my toes always feel cramped together and I hate that feeling, and toe socks helt to separate them. I've very happy they're making them again -- my only resource for them before the last couple years were thrift stores, and I generally draw the line at buying used socks.
In terms of hair static, some people who have bad troubles with it simply rub a dryer sheet over their hair, which actually works really well. Or could could just forget about it, and keep balloons in your pocket so that you can have a great party trick on hand.
Toe socks: They're stripy, they're often knee-length, and they're the only kind I'll wear around the house. That sounds weird, but it's just because I find I get better grip in them, and my usual fear of slipping on smooth surfaces is gone. They don't fit too well in some shoes, but my hiking boots are a size too big, so that's okay. But they are NOT a good idea for hockey games; you're feet'll chill much too fast.
Hair static: I have incredibly dry skin and hair, so I keep hand lotion with me at all times, and after putting it on my hands, run them through my hair. And I slide my hands under my hair after washing them, before the blow-dryer, which helps against static, and dries them faster. I have to avoid my b'loved retro polyester, sadly enough.

I hate toe socks w/ a passion!! I just feel weird. My toes usually touch each other and that way i know they're all there. I don't know how else to explain it ... hehe Everyone's present and accounted for!
As for static ... my hairs short, so i don't care all that much
I love my toe socks. LOVE 'em. I wish I could wear them all the time...this may sound weird, but they kinda make my toes feel MORE free, 'cause they aren't all lumped together. I do get better traction with 'em, too. They're just fun. And I love the stripes.
Static: Gel. Believe it or not, the dryer sheet thing works, too. Or you can always just move to Houston or New Orleans or Miami. ;]
Hmmm, I have to confess that I'm not a huge fan of toe socks either. They make my feet feel kinda itchy. And I'll have to agree with Smurf about making sure all the toes are present, accounted for, and in perfect working order.
And as far as static...I find that making sure my brush is cleaned out helps imensely! I get way more static if there's hair in the brush still, but if it's good and clean, that seems to help for me.

Toe Socks: LOVE THEM!!! They're my favorite kind of socks, and I just started being able to wear them again. I had really icky warts between my toes for like a year, so, obviously, I couldn't wear toe socks. But they're back and better than ever!
Hair Static: I have to confess I don't get it much. When I do though, it's always because I was just brushing it. So I throw it in a ponytail and forget (my remedy for ALL hair problems lol).

I like toe socks, I get this weird feeling when my toes are all touching and I like them to be separate. (I know, it's really weird)
I have kinda staticy hair when I blow it straight (it's naturally curly, boo) and I take a little leave in conditioner after i blow it dry and rub it on the top layer of my hair. It seems to work for me!
