Roxanne Weidele of Galesville is a retired art teacher who enjoys swimming.She
has naturally curly hair that she
must keep protected to minimize the frizz.
"If I swim in the Riva pool, I wear a cap because it's so intensely chlorinated," she
also notes that hair care can be tough for people who have well water, as many do in South County.
...Weidele is an artist and one of the owners of the River Gallery in Galesville.
is a hair nonprofessional, her
experience with naturally curly hair and her
art background make her
see hair in a different way.
"There's an art to doing hair," she
says."If I hadn't become an art teacher . . . I might have done that.It's sculpture with a media.It's shaping, coloring, molding."
The grass, I mean hair, always looks better on the other side, doesn't it?While I have always fought my straight hair, Weidele
has fought her
naturally curly hair for many years, attempting to make it straight.However, she's
come to embrace her
curls, wearing them in a low-maintenance bob.
"The best thing that has happened with this curly-haired acceptance is that I wash and go, just like the straight-haired people," says.

hasn't embraced going gray yet, so she
hair at home, approximately once a month.
