Ok...so I know I was confused a couple months ago, but I think I have it...you say "les" because ALL your hair is straight. just like you would say les ours sont animaux, because all bears are animals... You would use des when the specific amount doesn't matter, BUT you aren't trying to say all of something. je prendre des oeufs. you will have some eggs, or you will have eggs. the amount isn't specific, but you clearly wouldn't want ALL the eggs...I hope this helps? There was a good discussion on this topic either on the Duo facebook page or one of these other discussion boards, but I can't find the link..
