I Straighten My Hair

    But only sometimes because I like my curly brown hair and the straightener makes it really crispy unless I put this stuff in that smells weird. My friends say that it smells good, but it makes me want to gag.

    Poodle Tght Curl...

    The curl in my hair is so tight and unmanageable that if I don't straighten it, I look like a poodle!   When it gets longer, it looks great, like a loose spiral curl, but right now my hair is chin length and letting it go curly IS NOT A OPTION!

    And I Am A Guy..

    I don't straighten my hair everyday. I used to do it everyday, but that just took too much time and ended up ruining my hair. My hair is naturally wavy and now I just blowdry it. On the weekends, I usually straighten my hair one or two days if i'm going out with friends and it...

    Every Single Day.

    My hair is naturally wavy when I don't blow dry it. Even when I do blow it, It's still not straight at the ends so I have to straighten my hair every day. (I use the CHI straightener- BEST EVERRR) I love the pin straight look. It's annoying to do every single day but I don't mind...

    Oh Yes!

    If I didn't straighten my hair, it'd be all weird and wavy... But not REALLY wavy, just a werid wavy. I don't like it like that. So I straighten it. :D It helps keep it smooth and soft, easier to maintain, looks better, longer, shiney. I love my hair straight!

    I hate when I see people straightening their hair that don't even need to, or people that don't know how. Oh god, my favorite thing is when my hair is straight and a little crimped and people say, "Is this your hair naturally curly? You should wear it like that more often." No...

    Curliness Be Gone

    My hair is weird. It's kind of kinky curly near the roots and straightens out towards the ends. So basically I just straighten my roots. It's so retarded.

    My hair is naturally thick and the way I cut my hair it HAS to be straightened everyday or every other day. I've been curling it this past week but it just doesn't look as good as it is straightened.

    I don't really like using electric hair straighteners because of the damage it can do to hair. I use a round ionic brush with boar hair bristles and a blow dryer. The bristles help kind of spread out the natural oils in my hair make it straight and the heat helps it stay in place...

     I straighten my hair wayyy too much. I really don't know what i'd do without them, as silly as it may sound to some of you. But, my hair is just terrible, i wash it, blow dry it, and it's just all annoyingly puffy and wavy and horrible. So straighteners are a must :)
