Do yu attract more boys when yr hair is straight or curly ?

Like Tree4Likes

well I never straighten my hair, so I guess curly

I really don't see why girls straighten their hair to get attention from guys. From what I gather from everyone, it's the more MATURE ones who love curly hair, so what's the problem? Wouldn't you want a mature guy?

I'll admit that it's nice to get attention from the hotter ones, but in the long run, I'll take the nicer, more more mature ones who respect who you are no matter what your hair looks like <3

miss etincelle?
former dreadhead and now a curly girl!
type 3b/brunette
trying to grow my hair to at least bsl, but no longer than wl
now on cg and seeing how it's working so far
I think my curly hair is definitely more intriguing.

I get more attention from anyone when my hair is curly, because people think I'm Taylor Swift!! (So flattering!) So I obviously wear it curly more!
I've only worn my hair straight once, and people were just like "ok then....." Straight hair doesn't suit me, and my boyfriend says he loves my hair curly. I look way older with curly hair as well.
the sad thing about it.
i actually get noticed when my hair is straight.
i really don't understand.
i thought it would be the other way around.

i guess, because all "guys"
see are the video vixens with USUALLY
long flowing hair...

where i reside...guys
want the girls with the LONG "str8" hair..

I get more compliments when i straighten my hair, like i see a lot of people saying on here. I have no idea why. Maybe its the fact that i look older and can run my fingers through my hair when its straight or maybe its jsut because its different from my normal curly hair. I love all of the attention, but to tell you the truth, i would rather have my curls. It gives me personality, it gives me bounce And so many girls try to get our curls, but many fail, which gives me pleasure
Well, for me. It's curly(:
i always wear my hair curly when i go out. so many guys find it "hot" lol theres something very seductive about curly hair, its exotic. also, i straightened my hair once and realized how lame it was. as soon as i started dancing and sweating, it got super frizzy and gross, when my curly hair gets moist, it looks good lol
my hair loves:
KCKT
CURLS goddess curls[/COLOR]
Trader Joe's Tea tree conditioner

I'm on my way to growing out my hair to BSL and possibly longer- to also grow out a horrible uneven cut!


before:
Well... I think it depends on the guy! Lots of people commenting on this have said how their curly hair makes them look younger or whatever... and personally, I agree. But that's not the case with everybody
Don't just straighten your hair because you think guys will like it better. If you're gonna straighten it, do it for yourself! Do it because YOU want to change your style for a bit, not for anybody else. At the end of the day, it's YOUR hair, and if you straighten it all the time, you're gonna damage it. Trust me, I would know. I used to straighten my hair all the time for one year. I never wore my hair in its natural state, because I thought that my curly hair made me look like a child, and I wanted long, shiny straight hair. What I got was dry, damaged haystack hair. Well, since then I've discovered that there's nothing more beautiful than a healthy head of hair
A couple years back, a lot of boys were rly into me and i had curly hair. however, recently (probably bcuz im in middle school) boys seem to go for the straight haired girls. idk y but (at my school at least) they seem to like them better. however, i'm not gonna straighten my hair just becuz it might get boys to like me better. don't worry, the perfect guy will come for u who likes ur hair as it is naturally, curly. and if he doesn't hes not worth ur time.
I attract a ton of guys when my hair is straight,
but when my hair is curly, none. My hair is such a mess when it's curly, I kinda understand! lol

NEVER WEAR YOUR HAIR CURLY IF YOU WANT TO GET GUYS!!!! Its a fact that guys dont like it when girls wear thier hair curly because we usualy can't control are curls and it just isnt sexy, guys just arent into it BUT when your older like late 20s and older guys like becouse by then they are more mature and it just seems to work.Ya it is sad but you just have to get used to the flat iron and the blow dryer

CG-friendly Products List!
1. What kind of guy are you trying to "get"?
a. a superficial fling so you can look and feel cool
b. a meaningful relationship

2. If your answer is "a":
By all means blow fry your hair if that's what gets you the attention. Just know that it doesn't mean anything and try to be prepared in case it ever rains. Because, God forbid we let someone else see how we really are.

3. If your answer is "b":
Do your hair how you want to. Do it for yourself. Take care of it. If a guy is attracted to who you really are, it's worth a whole lot more. Think about it. If some guy is drooling over a photoshopped picture of a girl in a magazine, does it really mean anything? No. That girl doesn't even exist.

Are you really wanting someone to talk to you because of your hair?
I never straighten my hair so I attract the most boys when curly.

Um... I guess it really doesn't matter much. 3 or 4 of my closest friends are guys. They really don't care very much. I think they like it curly better because I myself am more comfortable that way. Confidence matters much more than hair.
Well, I'm homeschooled so I don't really hang out with many guys. But at my church, there's this 18 year old who flirts with me (only when he DOESN'T have a girlfriend), no matter how often I tell him I don't date. :P And I'm 15, so it's like, HELLO! Age difference!When I had straight hair, I wore jeans and shirts that were a little tight. He flirted with me a lot, and left me alone when he had a GF.Now that I'm wearing my hair curly, I'm also wearing loose, knee-length skirts, stockings (or pantyhose), a baggy T-shirt (Cookie monster and Johnny Cash are favorites), and one of my flower headbands, SoI think he's finally getting the "Weird" vibe that I'm constantly throwing out to everyone around me, cause even since he and his GF broke up, he's been leaving me alone.So I guess it isn't ONLY hair that gets guys to be interested. If you're more confident in your natural hair, I think the guys can kind of sense that. And if you're jusr plain weird (such as myself), they'll probably be less interested.
I only straightened my hair twice. And people told it doesn't suit me. I get the most attention I think when I have my hair in a side low ponytail. I started wearing my hair down recently and it just gets really really big. I'm still looking for the right products and hair routine.
3a, 3b (corkscrew)
Texture: mostly medium except for some messed up parts on top which are coarse.
Porosity: High
Location: Israel
Haircut: I got my hair majorly thinned!!! Best thing I ever did!

Still looking for the perfect products! And trying to deal with hard water!
