Hmmm. . . interesting. I bet if we took a poll most of the wavycurlies would say styled and the kinkycurlies naked. I have a bone to pick though--I don't think generally styled hair (read: a bit of product and scrunching) is as "manipulated" as straightened hair. For most of us (speaking for wavy-curlies, sorry for being your unofficial spokeswoman guys) it takes intense heat to make our hair straight and just a bit of coaxing to define the curl. We're not encouraging anything our hair wouldn't do naturally, essentially.

A lot of products will say on their package that they do not create a curl that is not already present, they just enhance it. People with naturally straight hair can not put a product in their hair & expect a curl to form, just as most 4c textured ladies and gentleman can not put a product in their hair & expect a curl to form.
