    Used To Hate It

    I've had a love/hate relationship with my hair. As a little girl, my mom would put my hair in pigtails, twist my hair and I would end up with these long, curls. Then the teen years. Ugh! I hated my hair. Blow drying didn't help. I would just frizz. And we didn't have the...

    Thick, course, dry, uneven curls,

    & frizzy!! Hate it!! I blow dry it straight. So much easier to maintain and soft!

    I have really thick, really kinky wavy hair

    naturally. I've been blessed with being able to do so much with it though. I can make it super straight or wear it curly or do up dos. A lot of times when I wear it curly though, as the day goes on it gets bigger and poofier and a bit undone looking. I have been using bumble and...

    Wild!

    When I just let my hair air-dry (which is always) my hair pulls itself into spiral curls.  Brushed out they become waves...until the humidity hits it and we're back to curl city.  Last time I got my hair trimmed, the stylist went waaaaaay out of her way to straighten it...

    I am obsessed with curly hair.

    I make it a point to try to compliment almost everyone that I see with great curly hair! People really appreciate it, too! I have naturally curly hair and I wear it loud and proud! I am a curly hair advocate and like to promote good curly hair care habits. I admit that I am a...

    The struggle is real.

    Girl with straight hair don't get it. It takes sooooo much patience to do my hair and straighten it. I have a lot of thick hair and it's long. Takes me like 2 or 3 hours.

    I have curly hair and I hate it.

    It is so hard to do anything with it so I straighten it everyday.

    Ok fellow pencil cushions..... I have always had out of control curly hair and I personally could never get it to look "neat" or exactly the way i wanted it. I always tend to get it cut super short to avoid many inconveniences... IE: messy after wearing a hat, the wind blowing it...

    Curls And Waves

    I have finally, easily halfway through my life now, embraced my wavy/ curly hair. Truth be told it took me well into my 20's to realize the true nature of my hair, as I spent the first part of my life doing every chemical thing possible and constantly struggling to have it do...

    Curly hair is an everyday struggle.

    But maybe one day out of 365 in a year, it'll look absolutely fantastic and then the next day you look like a poodle that just got shampooed.

    Not all curly hair is thick

    and coarse like people believe or say, are there any FINE-haired curlies out there? Achieving volume is a major struggle! Bouncy, big curly hair is more flattering than stringy, droopy curls... 😡

    I love my curly hair,

    but I dye it often so it gets damaged and it's not as curly as it was before. I want it curly but I don't like my natural hair colour. :(

    I straightened my hair today.

    When I was younger, everyone had straight hair. People made fun of my Afro. I hated my straight hair today. And I'm proud of myself for loving my natural hair better.

    Naturally Curly

    As I've gotten older my hair has gotten curlier and curlier. As a child it was just wavy and lovely and I still miss it when I see old pictures. As a teenager I hated my curly hair and had no idea how to deal with it, my mom didn't either I guess, so I just brushed it and kept it...

    I am natural. I'm the type of natural

    that doesn't goes around judging those who choose not to be. Natural is not something new people have been that way for years. I feel that if your hair is growing long and healthy with a perm then stick with that. If perms are damaging your hair maybe you should go natural. Do...

    Girls.. How do you make your hair shiny?

    Ugh. My hair has always been a pain. It's not THAT curly but it's pretty thin (although I have a lot of hair, does that make sense) which I think is the reason it tangles so easily. Every hair dresser I've been to is surprised by how knotty it is. They always say 'wow...

    after the hair loss. And now I am loving my curls more than the straight hair. I can't wait for it to grow really long, so that I can have really long curls.

    I hate when people touch my hair randomly,

    like people will just walk up and touch my hair an be like "WOW you have pretty hair" "WOW you have a lot of hair" like WOW keep your hands to yourself ✋ Or like people will pull on a curl and let it go and be amazed that it's still curly like wooooooww it's curly hair. 😓

    it's really hard dealing with curly hair.

    The knots, kinks, tangles. it's crazy, but it's worth it. I think curly hair makes anyone look playful and fun, so that's why I love my hair. olive oil and egg masks have helped my hair soooo much. I've noticed it growing a bit longer after using the mask once a week for two...
