    Supposedly, there are apps that do it, but I think they just vertically stretch and then scale it back to the right proportions. A master Photoshopper could do it, I'd wager, but not me. It'd be difficult to account for what muscle and not anyways.
    This isn't completely personalized, but it might get you in the ball park, especially with the visual adjust. For free, it isn't bad.

    Thanks NK. I think I'm somewhere in between an apple and hourglass shape. My body is just so awkward to me.

    I'm giving no 'poo a try starting tomorrow. For those who do go no 'poo, do you wet your hair on the days you don't cleanse it or what? I've never been able to find anything definitive on the subject.

    Before I cut my hair so short, I could not wet it on days that I wasn't "washing" it because my water was too hard. My hair would get very grungy. Some people use pre-boiled water to wash & wet, but that was too much work for me. It seems okay with my hair really short though.

    I would suggest starting with rinsing on days that you don't "wash" and see how it goes. It'll probably take up to 6 weeks to tell for sure if it's going to work with your water & scalp.

    I've had my hair as short as 1" long from a length of just below my shoulders. Even though my hair is fine, it grows quickly. It could be back to the length it is now by October.

    What I really want to do is go to one of those salons that specialize in curly hair but it costs $50 for a cut! I plan on going around October and have my hair done before our division meeting at the end of October.

    Ugh, can't tell you how many times I cut in haste and repented at leisure. My hair is exactly right right now and still I have days where I need to hide the scissors.

    I've been in a perpetual hate/hate relationship with my hair for the past 10 years. I started losing my hair 10 years ago and have always hated it. I did okay when the curls started with my first pregnancy in 1998. The loss of my hair and the baldness have just been too much. I have never cut my hair " in haste" like most women do. I just don't like having the same style for more than 3-6 months and I feel like I have had some version of the same style for the past few years and I hate it.
