Saturday Photo Scavenger Hunt: Memory



This is my sixth grade school picture. I have very, very, very straight hair, and I had to sleep all night in curlers with my hair drenched in Dippity-Doo to even get this much curl (this was before hot curlers and curling irons). I rarely curled it because of all that, but for some reason just wanted to for this picture. Someone in PE that day commented, “Someone in here smells like Dippity-Doo!” (Isn’t that a silly name for a product?) But this is one of my favorite pictures of myself.

  1. Ah, the school photo! That’s a cute one!
    I remember using heated rollers when I was in 6th grade-70-71. I just couldn’t sleep on curlers. That dippity do was gross and I remember it well. : )

  2. I remember the Dippity-Do only my hair was more curly and I put it up on those large, large pink and purple curlers, about three inches in diameter; trying to get it to curve and not curl… Wow! Just thinking about those curlers and trying to sleep with your head so far above the pillow… well, it makes my neck hurt!
    Mine’s up too.

  3. Very beautiful picture! I love the hair and the smile. I used to use the roller and the dippity do also. For my First Communion my Grandmother set my hair in rag curls. I looked like someone from the “Little Rascals”, but they came out the perfect Shirley Temple curls (and my hair was straight too). Great memory. Thanks for sharing:)

  4. That’s a very beautiful photo. Thanks for sharing. I love your smile. You must have had a wonderful childhood because it’s so evident on your face. Thanks for sharing. Mine is up too.

  5. omygosh I laughed out loud at the Dippity-do remembering how I used to use that stuff, too lol!

    Such a sweet picture of you…thanks so much for sharing :))]

    Have a great Saturday, Barbara!

  6. What a beautiful photo. Love your eyes and your smile.
    Wow…you brought back “memories” for me. Dippity Do? I remember it well….such yucky stuff. TO think we actually put that junk in our hair back when…lol

  7. I think it is a wonderful picture indeed :). I have had really straight hair my entire life too…I don’t know where our son has all his curls from – I guess my dad…

  8. Great picture! Just the word dippity doo brings back the memory of that stuff! Isn’t amazing that you remember the gym class comment. Now many years later I bet you are glad you endured it!

  9. Now that’s an excellent picture of you. My mom had one of my younger brother that looks like yours well not like you but the same appearance – his was done with an airbrush though (which of course doesn’t involve Dippity-Doo πŸ™‚
    I had to correct a mistake I made on mine. Please visit again if you can.

  10. What a great picture! My sixth grade picture is nowhere near that cute. I had cut my own hair the day before the picture so that I would have bangs, only to find out that there was a reason I never had them before…

  11. I had to laugh when I saw your post, not at the photo, but at the Dippty-Do comments! Come look at my 1st photo for the scavenger hunt. I am new to blogging…

  12. How funny, I should call my mom and see if she remembers “dippty do”. She used to tell me how when she was a little girl her mom used to roll and tie her hair with rags to make it curl.

    Mine is up.

  13. I enjoyed your post after this one, as well, but I just had to comment on the Dippity Doo. I’m 44, and my mom used to curl my stick-straight hair with that goop, too. Wasn’t it green? Maybe blue? I’ll be visiting your site again.

  14. I remember my aunt always plastering my cousins’ hair down with Dippity-Do! I loved the green color of it! My Mom never used it on my hair but that’s probably because my hair was always so short to begin with! Great photo – I’ll be back to see more!
