I Have Curly Hair

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    The shrinkage is deceitful.

    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.

    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.

    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˜“

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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. 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...

    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 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.
