Default Does anyone's hair look like this:

http://naturallycurly2.com/curlscene...ytype=articles

Okay, I'm not bashing the article, but the selection of pictures leaves me wondering:

Aren't these really straight-haired girls with roller or curling iron curls added? Not the kind of wavies we are?

My hair can do this, but it takes a lot of work and it will not stay if the humidity is above 25%. It used to do this in dry Colorado just by blowdrying and twisting into a bun, (but that was also before I had kids; and wacky hormones)

Just wondering where you other 2's, a's, b's, and c's, are on this.

Hey I wouldn't mind it if my hair looked like this, I'm mostly just sick of the eternal inconsistency of my hair!

ETA Is this anyone's goal hair?

No. Honestly, I assume every pic of a curly girl involved a curling iron. And I wouldn't call them wavies.

My initial response when viewing the pictures is that their waves are not natural. Maybe their hair is naturally wavy, but, not in those pictures. I know that my naturally wavy hair is completely different from thiers as is all of the rest of the pictures I have viewed here. I can make my hair look like that as well with the same technique you mentioned or with big rollers. I am all about applying product and letting air dry with minimal diffusing when needed. To make my hair look like that on a daily basis would be too much work

I could not get my hair to look like that! I would call that straight hair, lol. I find it really hard to find pictures of people with hair like mine. I usually end up finding pictures of curlies whos hair has been "done." Most wavies look way straighter than mine.

I also wish there were some better pictures on this site. We 2's are in that grey area between curly and straight and despite stylists loving our hair, no one really knows how to describe it!

My initial reaction is that they're styled .. they're too ... hmmm .. perfect, know what I mean? Too formed or something.

I did notice one thing in the article .. our very own "kjwavy" is mentioned! Now I know what her name is !

That is blow dried hair, flatironed, then set on rollers, most likely straight. Even curly pictures are usually the product of curling irons and rollers (and digital enhancing and airbrushing) it's all so deceptive. Even if it were natural (which it absolutely is not) It would be straight hair with a flip at the ends, they are noy wavy at all.

Sounds like we're in agreement:

Most of us have In-Between-Hair. We're not this straight, but not consistently what people call curly, though many of us can *fake* a 3a look, with the right gel (BiosilkRH!)

Welcome to the wonderful world of Wavies

The media is very misleading I think it gets my expectations too high.
It's got me liking that Kate Hudson, KFC-Mom/daughter hair right now. Somebody told me I look like the girl on Lost, and I took that as a complement, even though she's stranded on an island with no hair products.

Luckily, I get a lot of great advice from everybody, no matter what their hair-type - on NC.com!

Thanks!!!

I feel the same way. You just never know what a celebrity's real hair is like. They straighten the curlies/wavies and then they curl the straight hair. OY! :headscratch:headscratch.gif

ITA! That is why I love looking at peoples web pages here for photos. I get a much better grasp of the categories that way.

Actually, the picture of the woman on the left looks like my hair after I've blow-dryed it partway. So it could either be a straight girl curling, or a curly or wavy girl semi-straightening.

The only true "wavy" picture on there was the one of the girl going through the step by step diffusing process. My hair can look like any of those styles (except the really long one) if a stylist works with my hair, or I feel like putting in the time. I think stylists love wavy hair because it is more versatile. With straight hair or curly hair, it's mostly about the cut. Left to its own devices either of those hair types will keep the shape that's cut into it. Wavy hair REQUIRES styling because it won't look the same two days in a row. Great for a stylist who has nothing to do but style hair all day. Pain in the butt for me.

I agree all those pictures look fake except the step for step pictures.
Wavy hair is something weird Hairdressers likes us a lot but when you have to struggle with it day by day it's not that dream hair at all.
Sometimes I want to cut it al off in a short hair cut (when my hair is short I don't have these problems) but I want long hair (now it' s at shoulderlenght) does anyone recognize this situation ?

Yes, I totally sympathize with you. The shorter my hair is, the straighter it is. The longer my hair gets, the more wavy it is. The problem is that while I like the wavy, it tends to be unruly.

Yeah, I wish I could get those nice waves that are so in style now, but my hair can only do frizzy/curly or blown straight. And when it's straight (unless straighten by a professional) it often looks really puffy.

Hairstylists do love my hair but they never do the curly right (they try too hard and over scrunch) and often just want to straighten it.

Today I'm feeling the straightening bug again, but I think my hair looks better curly in the shape it is currently in.

I like that my hair can go either wavy or straight. It's fun. But I find the same thing that when I go to a hair stylist, all they seem to want to do is straighten my hair.
