The Curly Fashionista explains the perks of dating a fellow curly

As a curly single, I am always faced with the ever-present question when going out with friends or going on a first date: To straighten, or not to straighten? Forget Shakespeare—this is the real question.

I go back and forth with this almost every weekend. I love to wear my hear in its naturally curly state most of the time, and I want to make sure that if I meet a guy that I am not fooling him with a straight 'do. I want him to like me for me. This must be why I am automatically drawn to curly men. So in the spirit of (the cursed) Valentine's Day, I have compiled a list of why you should date another curly. As the oh-so-curly co-founder of NaturallyCurly.com would put it, CURL POWER!

1. Product

I dated my first curly guy in high school and found out that more than a few times, I would forget my hair product for my after-practice shower (I was a cheerleader—don't hold that against me). It came in very handy to have a boyfriend who kept a giant bottle of product in his gym locker. Granted, it was the cheapest, biggest bottle he could find, it was still better than walking around with frizz-head all day.
