    Ugh I hate my hair ! It's a pain in the ***

    really . Everyone else likes it but it's irritating and gets poofy and frizzy. Florida humidity is no joke! That's why i wear it up most days

    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 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...

    It curls when it wants to!

    Some days it's very curly, others, just wavy, but I LOVE them. I'm the only one in my family with curly hair, which makes me feel unique! Ahaha!

    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.

    Yup

    Sadly this curly hair isn't just curly it's frizzy curly! So not what I want I don't mind the curl but if the frizz would go away that would be great :D it's also so annoying to do! Well thanks for reading my rant about my stupid frizzy hair haha!

    As a multi-racial and multi-ethnic person,

    I grew up with a slight complex about my "mixed person" hair. It never looked like most of the people around me that seemed to all have these straight gorgeous locks of hair! My hair was always big, curly, and wild. I had a lot of hair and didn't know much about hair care. I...

    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.

    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...

    I've been straightening my curly hair ever since I was in middle school, but now that I'm 20 and I'm about to go off to college, I think I might try to do the natural thing. I mean, it's not like my hair is even all that bad, I just never feel like dealing with it. I feel like I...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    I love my curly hair.

    It's been a year since I've stopped constantly straightening it, and it's healthier than ever. At this point, I can't see it any other way, but in its natural state.
