So I spent most of the tour aboard the USNS Comfort with my hair in what I refer to as "camping-mode". Camping mode hair is hair that requires very little attention after it is initially groomed. I wore braids, pony tails, french pig-tails, messy buns before settling on an "up-do" french braid. It became my go-to hair of the day. It caused others to comment. Here you can see if from the back.
Really, my hair looked fine and I had no problems with it. On one occassion, Carl was in attendance when my hair was complimented. His response, "well would you tell someone they had an ugly baby to their face?"
