    Love/Hate Relationship

    I have a love/hate relationship with my curly hair. Somedays, I love it, and other days, I hate it. It has a mind of it's own most of the time, and I straighten it every so often, but it's a hassle to do it almost everyday. I, recently, started falling in love with my...

    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 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. :(

    Growing Up Curly

    Yes  I admit it.  I have curly hair.  I have always had curly hair.  As a child I was much admired for my curly hair, much envied.  I had long black ringlets.  I received a lot of attention and my sister was jealous as hers was straight. Then I...

    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 āœ‹ 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. šŸ˜“

    It was just so big and curly I had no idea what to do with it. I used to straighten it every day which took way too long. But I have this teacher who is basically my older me. We even twinned on twin day! Well she has this beautiful curly hair and I wanted my hair to look like...

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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!

    I get so frustrated when it comes to my hair.

    It's just too much work. I always feel it looks messy and unkempt. However, I wouldn't even feel like myself if I decided to cut my "luscious locks".

    I Give Up

    I don't even try to do my hair anymore, I just wash it and let it air dry. I only straighten it on very special occasions; takes up 2 or 3 hours to get it perfectly straight.

    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...

    A Surprise After a Haircut

    Strangely, I didn't know that I had naturally curly hair until I was 13 years old. For many years as a kid, I had long, long straight, thick hair. It went past my waist, and I absolutely loved it. I couldn't picture myself with short hair. I finally got tired of it as the...

    Yeah my hair is naturally curly.

    There's nothing straight about it. But it's weird because I use like regular shampoo like Pantene but when I let my hair down it sometimes gets frizzy easily by the end of the day. I see other girls that have their hair curly and it's super beautiful. Like I wish my curls were...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.
