    Too Curly

    It gets way too curly and then I sleep in it and wake up with dreads. I usually don't have enough energy or care to deal with it so I throw it up in a bun or keep it in dreads and pretend I'm rasta. Either/or.

    Afro Thunder

    My hair is getting kinda long, it's at about my shoulders when wet.  That's long for me, and because of that I don't really know how to take care of it.  I've got a nappy, spikey looking afro that just goes off in various directions.  Parts of it are even locked...

    My Hair Is Always Such A Mess...

    Maybe I'm just a perfectionist, but it seems my hair is always messy, no matter how many times I brush it. I can brush it tens times a day, and it's still bad. I've tried putting hairspray in it, but that never helps enough and when I do have it sprayed enough it looks horrid...

    Wind Blown

    My hair gets windblown if I don't keep it in a ponytail. When I wake up, if it's not up, it's all over my face. The long hairs are also all over the house. It doesn't matter how often I brush my hair or vacuum. It's always there. I like my long hair though, so I deal with it. I...

    I have insanely think and curly hair. In order to have it the way I like I must straighten it everyday. That means risking the back of my neck and my fingers to 400 degree ceramic plates. Not really fun.I don't wash my hair alot. I barely ever brush it. I never condition.I like...

    I guess I like it when my hair is up all day

    Yes I Am a Messy Person In General

    I guess my hair is messy - i don't brush it. I straighten my hair so most of the time it's fine when i wake up, i just put it in to place haha. Most of the time if i brush my hair it just makes it afro - so i stopped!

    I brush them but they always messy

    and curled (bye bye curling iron). Plus they grow too fast. I have to cut them like every 2 months. I love them naturally though. Let them grow black as Asian's should be. :D

    When Up

    It always looks like I just went through a wind storm. But when down it is thick, heavy and straight so it just lays there.

    I have long hair and it's ALWAYS all over the place, it tends to look bad way too often. At the moment I am debating whether to cut it or not, but I look like a turd with short hair, it doesn't suit me.

    My hair is a battle, everyday! When I wake up, it's always all over the place and sticking up in weird angles! I have to fight with it to get it down and straight! XD Every month, I have to use a home Hair Relaxer kit. If I don't, my hair is useless. :-( I have lost or broken...

    Slightly Sloppy

    Although I am in sales as a profession, one would never guess by looking at me.  The stereotypical salesman is ubergroomed and neat as a pin.  I, on the other hand, tend to always look a bit disheveled.  What Columbo is to detectives, I am to salesman.

    Straighteners Are the Enemy ..

    My hair has the "volume" that people who use volumising products are actually *desirous* of .. but even when I use hair straighteners, it just makes it all worse, as they leave a weird kink right in the middle all the way around my head, even though I'm using them...

    My hair can look either way, really messy or really cute. Sometimes the messy look is kind of cute, but it has to look intentional. Especially after I wake, my hair looks so bad, hahaha, I look a bit like a lion when I wake up. Several times, people have taken a look at me right...

    Now it has a life of its own, it never wants to be neat. Im going to give it another month before I get it sorted, maybe by then it will be bored of me having to tame it three times a day and will stay as I put it.

    My hair used to be too curly to really do anything with. I mean, it was this fuzzy curled up mess. I'd have to use a crapload of product in it to get it to look even halfway decent.   Nowadays rather than the frizzy ringlets...well honestly I don't know what the hell is up...

    I Wash My Hair and Comb My Face!

    You most likely do the opposite, but who is to say who is right? When you grow up with curly blonde hair, you really don't pay much attention until others make a fuss about it. Sometimes girls would say to me "I wish I had your hair" and I would say "...

    I never fix my hair. I rarely brush it.

    (Hence why I had dreadlocks for a year) I believe the human body is most beautiful in it's natural form. Not just naked, but hair as well. I let it fall, and be who it is. I have no one to impress, and if I need to impress someone, they aren't worth my time. :)

    Naturally Messy Hair Lol

    I have long hair which I only comb once a day since I don't really care about how I look most of the time. Sometimes when I comb it more than once, people would always ask me if I've done something nice with my hair or if I've recently had a haircut or something similar. I...

    Wow...Just Wow

    I have extremely curly, thick brown hair that always seems to poof and frizz up. When I was younger I would resent my hair and try to hide it. Now I adore it because it has become my little trademark. It also makes me look extremely artsy and interesting which is always a plus...
