    I used to hate it so much haha.

    Mainly because I had know clue how to manage it so I would always straighten my hair. It wasn't until HS I just started letting it go. It's crazy though people with naturally straight hair will never experience hours of doing their hair or having to do it a day before. Making...

    Naturally it's curled

    but I rarely ever wear it that way. There are those few days when I just don't feel like blow drying it because it's so long and takes so much time to do it myself so I leave it curly for a couple of days. It's a looks nice curly, I won't deny it but I always prefer having it...

    There's a love/hate thing with mah curls.

    As soon as you get out of the shower you *must* immediately start working on it, or even possibly in the shower. It frizzes if you comb it dry. And when someone touches your hair, it is DONE! All of yall curly cue's out there understand. But wait! There aren't all cons to having...

    I have curly hair and I hate it!

    !!! I hate it because it's unpredictable. If it's a humid rainy day I'm doomed. Pulled back with a headband. I straighten my hair allot. I rarely wear is curly. In the colder months I will go curly more though. It has been a life long journey of trial and errors. I figured out...

    Girls with straight hair don't know how easy

    they have it. -_- The fact that I actually have to "do" my hair every morning in order for it to look it's best is annoying. Meanwhile, most girls with straight hair can just roll out of bed, brush it for 60 seconds, and it would look completely fine. But in order for...

    So I dyed my hair back a week ago to dark brown,

    my natural black hair is a little too much. In like a week or two I might redye, but tbh I don't wanna kill my hair so I might just leave it natural black. I mean my hair is really rare, jet black, but brown is beautiful.

    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 didn't really plan it

    that way. My hair is straight as a board and I cut it often so it doesn't have much style. I wanted to have a more feminine appearance. I saw my sister at a dinner and her hair was beautiful.. She said, "it's a perm." So I got all the information on her hair stylist and had...

    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...

    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...

    It's more wavy than curly

    but when it gets below my shoulders it gets very curly. I do like my curls but there are those frizzy days like today when it just seems so wildly unmanageable I just feel like cutting it all off!

    My hair is curly. My hair curls into soft

    bouncy ringlets. I used to hate it as a little girl, but now that I'm older and people are always complimenting it, I've come to like it a I little :) It's just a pain to look after 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 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˜“

    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...
