Test vlog for wavies

Like Tree27Likes

Thank you, Chupie! So true that there is a thundering silence on the you tubes and the internets regarding wavies. I do not want to watch one more you tube video by some high school girl teaching me how to get "beachy waves" using a flat iron, silicon serum, and an entire can of hair spray. (No offense high school girls - I'm old and crabby).

And while I really like watching Waterlily716 and many of the other curlier haired vloggers, it can get discouraging after a while. My hair will never look like Waterlily716's hair, no matter how much I scrunch and no matter how much BRHG I use. And the techniques and products for curly hair, while useful, aren't quite right for my hair. I started the CG method because I wanted a more natural, simplified approach which embraced the natural texture of my hair. Ha! It's been very expensive and very time consuming trying products better suited to curlier hair. (Not to mention it's just not normal to obsess over hair gel, dew points, and clumping but that's another story).

Wavy hair really is its own thing - most of us aren't struggling to reduce volume, combatting extremely dry hair, or terrified by the occasional use of a hair brush. Wave on, Chupie!

Your presenting style is great Chupie you have inflection in your voice, pace is good and you don't say 'um' or 'er' like some YouTubers do.

I don't know what happened at the beginning of that segment but the sound does come back. Maybe I'll
Try compiling it again.

I tried again. That audio does the same thing. I don't get it because the clip is fine. But it really is just momentary!

Wavy hair is often described, even in the CG book, as just enough curl to look 'unkempt' rather than gloriously curly or straight

We seem to go through an awful lot of trouble to 'look unkempt'.

I agree that wavies are underappreciated, And we need more blogs, clogs, and products aimed at US.

Well, that's because I haven't. So, great, I guess people will just look at me think, "Geesh, that woman hasn't even brushed her hair today."

So it gets better.

I am new here but thanks for the videos, Chupie - I found them really informative! Am going to have to give conditioner only styling a try - I like your hair best like this, btw! I have subscribed and I will watch any others if you make them.

And by the way, I so appreciate the things that have been said in this thread about the problems we face as wavies not fitting into curly or straight. I am so happy for the curly girls and the "revolution" they are getting but I wish we had something similar for us. Even if it's not a good fit for us looser wavies though, the fact that other textures and patterns are being recognized really is a plus for all of us.
