I don’t know about you, but when it’s really humid outside, my hair becomes flat and flyaway. I don’t know what to do! When I was in Spain for a class trip, it was maybe 90% humidity – so naturally my hair went AWOL. My friends had similar problems! Because almost everyone I know gripes about bad hair days from humidity, I thought everyone would find it funny if I centered a Chapel strip around the topic – especially since Chapel’s hair is one of her distinctive factors!

Anyway, let’s chat in the comments, Chapelites! Do you guys ever have humidity bad hair days? Share your horror stories below, and maybe we can even swap tips for beating out the humid weather!
Rbuy_book_plain
yes I have the world's curliest,frizziest hair EVER!!
got any tips?
ashlee 11/12/12
Hmm...I don't know how to help, really! I don't have curly hair, so I don't have any tips to help out...anyone else?
 Emma  11/12/12
 
Chapel has EVEN MORE HAIR than it looks like, and that's really saying something.
Clockwork Wombat 10/15/12
I know, right? There's a TON there!!
 Emma  11/12/12
 
mine does the same thing,emma!
lala 10/6/12
Ah, yeah, it's tricky!
 Emma  10/8/12
 
At that rate, she could cosplay Merida from Brave with no problem at all! :D
Keito 4/3/12
Oh...she COULD! What a cool idea!
 Emma  10/8/12
Ha! I can't believe I didn't think of Brave when I read this. XD
Clockwork Wombat 10/15/12
totally
(- _ -) 3/16/16
 
I can relate, but my problem runs in the opposite direction: my hair is so straight they could use it as a level. When the air is dry, however, it's a potent energy-weapon that generates enough static electricity to fry several computers at once (It actually did that at one of my jobs...) When it's humid is the only time it's safe to be around.
NefariousDrO 3/20/12
Ha ha, wow! I hadn't heard of that "reverse humidity problem" yet.... AND it actually fried one of your computers? Can we hear that story please?
 Emma  3/22/12
Well, it's not as impressive as it might sound. It was during the winter and the air was severely dry. I'd already sparked a couple of co-workers that day and when I sat down at my computer a spark jumped about 2 inches from my hand to the keyboard. I was using an iMac, so the jolt ended up killing the keyboard and caused enough damage to the board inside the computer that they had to replace the whole thing. Since then I've been using much more conditioners during the winter to control it and avoid a repeat.
NefariousDrO 3/24/12
 
i was thinking like in lieu of hand blades chapel could turn into a giant hair monster or something
Yarin 3/19/12
this is for my webcomic i don't want to do something to offend you
Yarin 3/19/12
Oh sure! Whatever you want to do, I'd be flattered if Chapel has a quick cameo! :D
 Emma  3/22/12
 
Emma, I showed my grandmother your comics and she really likes your technique and stories! (So do I!) She's an artist too! :P
Katherine 3/18/12
good job Emma! you're getting whole generations into liking your comics.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/18/12
Haha! Right! :D
Katherine 3/18/12
Thank you, I suppose you're right! :D
 Emma  3/22/12
Oh wow, that's super flattering! Please tell her I'm so happy she likes my comics, and I'm really happy YOU showed her, too!
 Emma  3/22/12
Ok! :)
Katherine 3/22/12
It was my pleasure to show her! :D
Katherine 3/22/12
 
I had a great time with the livestream yesterday, I hope you do more soon! :)
Emily14 3/18/12
I hope so too! :D
Katherine 3/18/12
Yay, I'm glad!
 Emma  3/22/12
I will do more! The next one I do probably won't be Chapel-related drawings, but starting in early May I may do weekly livestreams so everyone can see me create each week's comic! Does anyone like that idea?
 Emma  3/22/12
OMYGAWD YES YES YES YESSSSS!!!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/22/12
That sounds great!
Emily14 3/22/12
I LOVE that idea! :) (\(^_^)/)
Katherine 3/22/12
 
I just watched a movie... it was sooo sad :(
Miss L.S.P 3/18/12
Awwww what did you watch?
Katherine 3/18/12
Well, I watched most of it after the beginning... I watched " Somewhere in Time"..
Miss L.S.P 3/18/12
I don't know it... :( what's it about? :P
Katherine 3/18/12
A guy, sees a pic of a lady, falls in love, wants to go back in time 2 find her, finally does it . He meets her, falls in love, she too, she has 2 leave, so he's upset when she does, but she doesn't really. Then, they are talking and all of a sudden finds a penny from the time he's from. Goes back to his time, is depressed and dies. Later, he and the girl are reunited but, still, it wasn't one of my faves. :(
3/19/12
I assume this is Miss L.S.P. posting this...this doesn't sound like the most happy movie even if they are reunited...
 Emma  3/22/12
Oh yes, it was me. It was so depressing.. I don't like it...
Miss L.S.P 3/22/12
It sounds so sweet! :)
Katherine 3/22/12
well, the depressing part is mostly when he dies..
Miss L.S.P 3/22/12
Yeah... Well that happens in movies... :(
Katherine 3/22/12
True... but, It's just a little different when he dies, because you know, it isn't like Harry Potter or anything, it was just different to me.
Miss L.S.P 3/23/12
 
OMG!!! Emma that was awesome (x100000......) I really enjoyed it! You are so nice!!!!
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
If you ever do it again PLEASE tell us ( you probably would anyway) It was really awesome!!! :D
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
yes, it was amazing!!!! Sorry I had to leave so early, but I really got to know you all ;)
Did Taxil ever show?
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/17/12
I don't know, I was only there for the end..
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
That was me by the way, forgot to put a nick name 4 that...
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
Oh and I especially liked how Emma talked to us after we put down our chat thing...
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
Yeah, it was great! DO THAT AGAIN, EM!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/17/12
YES, TOTALLY DO IT AGAIN!!! XD
Katherine 3/18/12
Yes Please! I really love it!!! :D
Miss L.S.P 3/18/12
GREAT!! I DEFINITELY WILL I'm so glad everyone had fun because I had a BLAST. I guess you're all up for it if I decide to do it again, eh?
 Emma  3/22/12
No, he never commented... I was there for the whole livestream (hehe)... AND YES IT WAS AMAZING! Right? :D
Katherine 3/18/12
I know right!!!! Thanks Emma!!!!
Katherine 3/17/12
I'm so glad you guys liked it! I had a TON of fun and I'm definitely planning on doing it again!
 Emma  3/22/12
 
I am really sorry, but I freaked out going on that livestream thing... I haven't done it before.. what should I do??
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
She can't hear you, so you can just chat with her and she answers :D
Katherine 3/17/12
Yes...
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
Yup, that's how it works! Usually people who livestream type along with their viewers in the chat, but I find it's easier if I just talk out loud. That way I don't have to stop drawing to respond.
 Emma  3/22/12
I like it that way.... :)
Miss L.S.P 3/23/12
She's really nice :) Aren't you Emma? :D
Katherine 3/17/12
OH YEAH Emma is so epically nice!!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/17/12
Awwwwwwww what? You guys flatter me way too much...<3
 Emma  3/22/12
 
Emma is LIVESTREAMING NOW! Come watch her draw at the site she wrote in the comments below!
Katherine 3/17/12
Well it's over now but YES it was fun!
 Emma  3/22/12
 
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY KIDS! most of you kiddies here are probably too young to drink, so i'll have a Guinness in your names for all of you.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/17/12
okay... :) Happy St. Patrick's Day! I'm not wearing green yet... are you?
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
(pinches Miss L.S.P.) yes i am, so should you.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/17/12
I AM!!!!
Don't pinch me!!!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/17/12
I won't! I won't! and yes, I should be wearing green...
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
" ouch" :P I know I should. You are pretty much the only person who has actually pinched me so far..
Miss L.S.P 3/18/12
I always wear green, so I never get pinched...Happy St. Patty's Day!
 Emma  3/8/13
 
I love your comics Emma! They are so funny, keep doing them!!!! :)
A Really BIG Fan! 3/17/12
Thanks so much, that's really sweet to hear! :D
 Emma  3/22/12
 
OKAY IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT! Tomorrow (Saturday) I'm going to be doing a livestream! If you don't know what that is, it's basically where you get to see me work on Chapel comics and drawings in real time. The best part is, there's an I'm chat function on the side -- you don't need an account or anything -- which lets me chat with all of you during the stream! I'll be starting around 12 noon pacific time, or 3 pm for you east coasters, and continuing for several hours. So feel free to pop in and watch! All you have to do is go once I've started recording. And that's it! Hope to see you guys there!
 Emma  3/17/12
Whoops, there should've been a link in there. The place to go watch is livestream[dot]com[slash]chapelchronicles!
 Emma  3/17/12
I.
AM.
THERE.
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/17/12
I am gonna go!
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
I'll try and come! :D It's in 5 hours then! (Haha it's 10 am here! :P)
Katherine 3/17/12
 
Ha, my hair is EXACTLY like that in humidity! Mine is long and quite curly, it's insane to control. I always wish I had straight hair, but straightening it is such a bother...xP
kiwifruit 3/17/12
Oh, mine is straight but quite fluffy/frizzy. I LOVE curly hair thoguh, my mom's hair is so pretty and curly! Although everyone hates the humidity...I feel your pain...
 Emma  3/22/12
 
What a cute strip! I like the art for the house. (That's an interestingly colored house Chapel has.)
Sasha 3/17/12
Thanks so much, I'm super glad you like it!! And yeah, isn't her house interesting?
 Emma  3/22/12
 
Yikes. I think we could fit a few Chapels in her hair alone!

Luckily I don't have much trouble with my hair when it's humid. I dunno, maybe because it's so long it weighs down the frizz. LOL, BUT then again since it IS long, what isn't messed up with humidity just makes me hot during the summer anyway.
Emily13 3/16/12
How long is your hair? Since mine's pretty short, it gets fluffed up by the humidity fairly easily -- and doesn't bother me so much in summer! But then again, the summers around here are dry instead of humid.
 Emma  3/16/12
My hair's pretty long. Below my waist definitely.
Emily13 3/17/12
Oh WHOA that is really long...
 Emma  3/22/12
 
Chapel's hair appears to have more mass than her body does. :D
Morgan 3/16/12
Yeah, she's probably getting a bit top-heavy there! :D
 Emma  3/16/12
 
Oh wow.
That happens to me too, because my hair is a little curly and more than a little hard to control... Great strip Emma!
Ginny Weasley fan 3/16/12
Thanks so much! I'm glad this happens to you too -- I mean, I'm not glad because bad hair days are no fun, but it's good that you can relate to this strip! :D
 Emma  3/16/12
Well, where I live isn't that humid, so when I did go to humid places my hair would spring up everywhere. It was more a problem with the hair in front of my face....
Ginny Weasley fan 3/20/12
 
Anybody to answer my riddle?
Miss L.S.P 3/16/12
Which riddle? I don't...I don't think I see it!
 Emma  3/16/12
Oh, it's in the previous comment zone. Here: A car pulls up to a hotel. A woman screams and a guy gets rich really fast. What's happened? Hint #1: There is nobody in the car. Hint# 2 No casino with the hotel.
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
Is the hotel on Mayfair or Park Lane? (That should be enough to show what my guess is, without spoiling the riddle for anyone else.)
Scott's Folly 3/19/12
I am not sure actually..... but does anyone else want to take a stab at it?
Miss L.S.P 3/20/12
 
I love this one!!!! Chapel's hair is so poofy in the last panel. I love it!!!! My hair isn't effected too much by the humidity. Then again, I haven't gone to too many places that are really humid............................
Blarber123 3/16/12
Oh, I see! Yeah, it doesn't tend to get that humid here in California, but at other places I've visited it can get pretty awful. And I'm super glad you like this strip! You're lucky your hair isn't affected by humidity.
 Emma  3/16/12
 
i never have that problem then again i'm a guy with short hair
Yarin 3/16/12
at least you still have hair....(sighs)
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/16/12
um, well, i should also add, that the hair didn't really leave me, it just moved down and gave me a nice beard.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/16/12
Oh, Taxil, you have a beard? That's neat! :D
 Emma  3/16/12
i remember some years ago when i was delivering Christmas dinner baskets to the needy. a young child, couldn't have been much older than 6 (and was one of the needy i gave food too) asked me if i was santa clause. I gave him a vague reply and basicly told him if he stayed a good boy, he might see me again.

deep down inside me and in hind sight, maybe i was the closest that little boy would have to a santa clause that year.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/17/12
Oh my gosh! That's so sad! :'( Wow!
Katherine 3/17/12
yeah... poor boy :(
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
I think i remember seeing that boy sense then. He has grown up quite a bit. i do hope he'll be able to rise up from where we came from and at least live a good life.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/18/12
it is also very true my lady.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/17/12
That is so sweet, Taxil. This is Emma's mom, Marie.
Marie 3/17/12
thank you, but sadly, it is a true story.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/17/12
i think i need to add this as well.

Mrs. Marie (Emma's mother), for years i have volunteered my time and work to my church's food pantry that gives food to the needy. I have literally given out and transported hundreds of tons of food already.

From my exprience that you do not need to turn to the government to help the needy, because in the end, they can't do the job right. Helping others over seas might help for a short bit of time, but rarely does it last. I think that we can help the poor right here were we live. there will always be the poor among us, that does not mean they have to suffer as much as they do.

I find helping others with our own hands can make miracles to form. The church helps out even more.

Mrs. Marie, i do not know if you go to church with Miss Emma or not, nor am I asking you to tell me about it. but please think about what i do with my church to help others, can you and your family do the same as i do?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/18/12
Oh, I see! That would make sense then! XD
 Emma  3/16/12
 
Omigosh! I just put down a comment here to tell you how funny it was!!! But then something happened and the comment was put in A Very Chapel Christmas!! Sorry! Well, if you go over there, you can see what I said. Plus you know that I wasn't laughing and the Christmas comic.... ;p
Miss L.S.P 3/16/12
at not and
Miss L.S.P 3/16/12
It's okay, I saw it! The site emails me whenever someone makes a comment, so I figured out what happened. Was it a problem with the website, or did you just accidentally go to the page of A Very Chapel Christmas?
 Emma  3/16/12
i don't know! I was here first and then...
Miss L.S.P 3/17/12
 
OH EM GEE hgttdrhboib
This is SOOOO great!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/16/12
Aaaah I'm glad you like it! I had SO MUCH FUN WITH IT oh my gosh.

Also, since you're the first one here today: If I did a livestream tomorrow (Saturday) would you be interested in watching? I'd probably color some Chapel comics, do some drawings of my other characters, and then take requests.
 Emma  3/16/12
Where will the livestream be? :P I LOVE Chapel's hair in this strip! :P
Katherine 3/16/12
I'm not the first one to comment though... :(
Katherine 3/16/12
ITS OK.
I LUV THE HAIR, EMMA!!! TOTALLY AWESOME. LUCKILY THERE'S NOT 2 MUCH FRIZZ HERE!!! WOULD MOVE IF WAS-CAN'T STAND MESSY HAIR!!! MUST...BRUSH...MUST...BRUSH... -CLARE
3/16/12
Haha!!! Very funny. And where oh where is Dr. Taxil Necrobane!!! Want him 2 join us. But will probably always correct us!!! (just kidding) I wouldn't mind though. DR!!! -AR
3/16/12
O YEAH. GUYS I'LL B OFF 4 A FEW DAZE. SISTER IS SOOOO MAD I'VE BEEN HOGGING THE COMPUTER FOR WEEKS. BYE!!! LAST GOODBYE!!! (BLOWS KISSES) -CLARE
3/16/12
I'll be off 2. Going on vacation 2 celebrate Mom's bday. 2 HAWAII!!!! Ok, bye!!! Luv u all!!! -Robin
3/16/12
SOOOO LUCKY!!! EMMA R U GOING ANYWHERE??
3/16/12
Nope! I'm on spring break this week, but I'm finishing up a book of Chapel comics so it doesn't really count -- it's more of a "work vacation" so to speak.
 Emma  3/16/12
I haven't had a vacation in years. lucky you all.

the last one i had was when i went back up to equally beloved place known as the Keweenaw Peninsula. (go look it up, it's real, i'm not joking). It's quiet other than the sounds of nature. I get unplugged from the modern world. I can walk down to the shore at night away from the few lights and see the night sky as it really is and the milky way in all it's rarely seen these days glory.

have any of you seen the milky way with your own eyes?
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/17/12
I have!when we were in cape breton,Canada, we saw it almost evry night.
butterflyer 3/17/12
I've also seen it once or twice in my back yard.
butterflyer 3/17/12
it's breath taking to see. i get to see it along side the deer and black bears and all the other wild animals.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/17/12
cool!
butterflyer 3/17/12
(smirks) i remember one time when i was staying up in the Keweenaw, a big black bear slept right out side my bedroom window all night.

it.
SNORED.
LOUDLY.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/18/12
Wow! That must have been SO SCARY!!! :O :P
Katherine 3/18/12
NOPE! that bear was more scared of me than the other way around. black bears are not that agressive. just don't courner them or mess with their young, they will try to run away.

besides, i have the means to deal with them. that and i find black bears rather tasty once you BBQ them right.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/18/12
Wow you eat black bears?!?!?! That's cool (and a little weird hehe)!!!
Katherine 3/18/12
I have eaten a number of wild animals in my days. Most of them tasted wonderful. there is nothing weird in doing so. Humans can eat more than you realize from earth's biosphere. There is more to it than chicken, beef, pork and turkey.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/19/12
yes, yes, although I have never really tried anything out of that range...
Miss L.S.P 3/21/12
you should try it. if you can get your hands on some.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/22/12
There's this boy in my class, and he is TOTALLY obsessed with ostriches! My BFF'S Mom once ate an ostrich wing, thinking it was a chicken wing. She told ostrich-boy that, and now he thinks I ate one too!!!
-Agent Robin
3/22/12
OMG ROBIN GIVE ME YR PHONE # AND WE CAN CALL!!! TALK ON PHONE. PLAN WHEN 2 CHAT ON CHAPEL. -CLARE
3/22/12
Guys, I'm gonna have to say that I'd prefer you don't. First off, any comments that have a phone number in them are gonna be deleted just for security reasons -- and secondly if you're going to be on the phone, can't you chat on the phone and not on this website?
 Emma  3/22/12
Yes, Emma, I totally agree on your point to not give out personal info!
Katherine 3/22/12
Yep! We wouldn't want anyone's phone number being stolen off the site, and plus since they're supposedly cousins, they must have some way to give it to each other privately. It's more safe that way!
 Emma  3/22/12
yeah...
Miss L.S.P 3/23/12
Oh, sorry... ok. will ask mom 2 get phone # from aunt. sorry emma!!! we won't have conversations on the site anymore. starting now! -Robin
3/27/12
YUP. SORRY!!!! WILL JUST COMMENT ONCE EVERY COMIC! -C
3/27/12
No, no, that's not what I meant! It's TOTALLY fine for you guys to chat on the site, just maybe keep it a tad more on topic...anyways, please keep chatting and commenting, it's all good!
 Emma  3/27/12
UM. OK. BUT NOT AS MUCH.
3/27/12
My hair is really frizzy-at all times! It's really annoying, because at school we're running laps outside, and POP! my hair looks like Chapel's!!!! -Robin
3/27/12
Any type of bear scares me to death, whatever anyone says.
Ginny Weasley fan 3/22/12
Oh wow, that's fun! I went to Hawaii over Christmas, I really love it! What island are you going to?
 Emma  3/16/12
Aaah, that's a shame. Well we understand why you can't come to the computer then!
 Emma  3/16/12
He commented up above, can you see it? He's here of course!
 Emma  3/16/12
I'm still here by the way.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 3/22/12
Pfff my hair is messy ALL THE TIME. I barely even brush it! But I don't leave the house much, so it's not like anyone minds.
 Emma  3/16/12
Ha ha, that's okay!
 Emma  3/16/12
Thanks! The livestream will be on my livestream channel. If I DO decide to do it, I'll link it over at my tumblr blog.
 Emma  3/16/12
UHM LIKE HECK YES
but I go by eastern time so what time for me...?
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/16/12
Hmm...well, I'm still not totally sure I'll be able to do it -- but if I do, it'll probably start around noon my time (so 3 pm for you) and then continue for several hours! I don't really have a set schedule, but if enough people want to watch the livestream and I'm able, then I'll probably do it. (I'll announce it on my tumblr if I am doing it, of course).
 Emma  3/16/12
Yeah! Consider me TOTALLY THERE if it happens!
Harry Potter PWNS ALL 3/17/12
 
I forgot to say goodnight to you.
