I think "naturally scraggly" would have been the perfect definition for my hair. I've always felt a little as an imposter too...I see other curlies whose hair naturally springs up without scrunching; my daughter's hair does this. But mine, I've got to really scrunch to get it to wave nicely, otherwise it looks "scraggly" like it really needs a good run with the flat iron, LOL! I do recall as a young child that if I would play out in the rain I would get little ringlets around my temples and my hair would wave by itself.
I used to scrunch my hair and blow dry it "wavy" with some hair spray prior to my mod CG days, but it never looked as good as it does now. And my hair is sooo much healthier now!
