Mine are wiry and behave vastly different to the rest of my hair. Whereas hair around my face has always been straight (the wave starts much lower down), the grey now decides to go ultra wavy and I end up with weird things happening. Second-day hair is slowly becoming a nightmare for me as those grey hairs seem to pop out overnight and refuse to lie flat. That's one reason why I use gel on an almost daily basis - to tame it all down and to keep the illusion (for myself at least) that my hair is still smooth and well-behaved.

'Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfailing beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.' 1 Peter 3:3-4
