Do looser curlies ever wish they had naturally tighter curls?

Like Tree11Likes

I have 3a hair it's funny before I embraced my hair I wanted straight hair now I love my hair but also love the curl pattern 3b and c's get aswell as the thickness I love big full curly hair lol I think it's not a case for me of grass is always greener on the other side as the apreciation of other types and textures
Yes! My hair was curlier as a small child (3a/3b), but my curls are looser now (2c/3a). I've always loved tight ringlets, and wished my own were more uniform. I remember one time in highschool, my mom took me to an expensive salon as I was so frustrated with my frizzy hair and no one knew how to cut it (always had one long layer and triangle head). This stylist told me I would probably like my hair better if my curlier ringlets were more wavy like the rest of my hair, and suggested a relaxer. Needless to say, that did not happen. Instead she cut my hair in three long layers that looked like shelves (shudder). Never went back there again! I love my hair now, but I always sigh over pictures of tight, bouncy ringlets
2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

Even though I love my hair. If I could change my wave/curl pattern I'd want more tighter curls like 3b. I just love tight curls I think they are so pretty and there are days I get so mad with my hair because the curls are so loose that even fingering it the curls fall out so tighter curls would be great.

Most people I know myself included wish their curls were looser but I wonder if those looser curlies wish they had my tighter curls or 4a/b hair.

Don't get me wrong, I like hair in general and love seeing a great head of curly, wavy, straight hair. But I actually think my hair suits me as is aesthetically. Now if I could have a shorter detangling time with my current kinky coils, I would definitely take that!

My hair makes me unique and it is something I finally understand to the core.

Sorta. I think the looser texture I have suits my face the best, but I do long for a more consistent pattern, and a stronger one. I'd love to be able to scrunch something light in, and go.
