    The shrinkage is deceitful.

    It always makes me second guess the length of my hair.

    A Long Long Time

    For as long as i can remember during this decade, I've been trying to straighten the curly locks on my nappy head..  My hair is much like the group logo..  I've been noticing more and more curley headed ladies are embracing what is natural.  Bring back the big hair...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Things you should know

    before dating someone with curly hair: 1. we shed. a lot. You will find our hair everywhere. 2. Some days, we're going to really love our hair. Others, we will talk half-seriously about cutting it all off. Don’t ever let that happen, but also don’t shrug it off too much...

    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.

    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.

    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 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 βœ‹ 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. πŸ˜“

    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.

    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!

    This Dove commercial is awesome!

    It's really a great commercial for young girls that don't feel as valued or pretty because they have natural curly hair. I'm a very proud curly girl and I applaud Dove for this wonderfully creative way to honor different kinds of beauty.
