Do looser curlies ever wish they had naturally tighter curls?
 
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.

I'm not a looser haired curly (I'm a 3c/4a) but I've often envied a tighter curl pattern (4b or tighter). I've had plenty of wavy and loosely curled people tell me they wish they had hair like mine. The grass is always greener on the other side!

Blame it on the cell phone...

Yeah...
I'm 2b/2c, but the curls are weird and unpredictable. Sometimes, they don't even separate. I want more 3a/3b

Johari, I think we always want what we don't have!

I would like my underlayers to curl more, and the top layers to curl less, so they blend.

My mom had straight blond hair -- I ended up with my dad's hair. I always wished I had straight hair, and she wished she had curly hair.

I'm pretty happy with my hair.

GroYoFro 12-26-2011 04:40 PM

i think the important thing is to appreciate what you have, so that your not left always wishing.

people that wish become unsatisfied, upset, and angry..

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes. I have a coworker who has amazing, perfectly separated bouncy 3c curls and there isn't a day that goes by when I don't have major hair envy. Her curls have so much volume and spring to them that my limp stringy hair can't help but be jealous. Granted, type 3c-4b curls would look ridiculous on me with my features, but I think they're all fabulous hair types. For myself, 3a-3b curls would be a dream come true. Even 2b or 2c would be an improvement.

Honestly, I get the sense that my hair type is envied by a lot of women and I feel the need to spread the word that it is not at all an easy hair type to have. The common perception is that we can go wavy or straight, which means it's "versatile" and therefore a good hair type to have. But this isn't the case. It takes a monumental effort to get my hair to either lie straight or wavy, especially in winter. I'm in a no-man's-land of frizzy weakling waves that look more like messy, bent straight hair than anything else. I'd be thrilled to have it either be curlier OR straighter (but curlier would be ideal).

While I know curls are not predictable, at least curlies wake up every day knowing they will have curly hair. Straighties, too, have some level of predictability that I and many other wavies just don't have.

So all of you curlies who think no one wants or admires your hair: you are so, so wrong! I'll accept a hair transplant from any of you!

I like my hair too, but I sometimes secretly wish for a head full of 3C-ish curls

modelKTford 12-26-2011 05:22 PM

All the time! I just want consistently Boticcelli , 3a-ish curls--is that too much to ask?! XD

I love seeing the tightly curly, and really think it looks fantastic, but no, if I could choose only one hair type I would like to have the perfected version of what I have now. Loose bouncy curls. Anything up to the tightest curls on my head, but not tighter, and more consistent and not as frizzy, and not straight underneath.

I have 2c/3a hair and I wish I had 4b hair! I love all the bounce and volume. It also seems really versatile! I always read about the 4a/b ladies doing all kinds of stuff with their hair and I get so jealous lol not too sure I want to spend hours detangleing it though....

I would love to have consistently great curls without any frizz!!! The curl pattern isn't as important to me as frizz free hair with lots of volume.

Lilly820 12-27-2011 06:38 AM

Absolutely!!! My hair is more wavy and I just wish it had more curl. It is somewhere in the middle of straight and curly. I just wish it would make a decision! :)

i agreee! altho i rarely have frizz, i do have hair that is "unbouncy" if that is a word, unless i add extra conditioning after it has dried -- i guess what it is is the first to lose moisture!! and, of course, it is right in the front, along my face. might have something to do with it being white now.....
so, i would love to have 3c curls as they would curl no matter what!
but as frizzBgone said, any pattern is good as long as it is shiny and has volume. i've seen gorgeous wavies with hair like that, so it isn't really the pattern.

^ What she said!!

wavynwild16 12-27-2011 01:01 PM

OMG, YES YES YES!! I get hair envy from all hair types, especially wavies that really know how to rock their loose, pretty curls, but I used to always want tighter curls. I have gotten to the point where I'm pretty happy with my hair and the curls I have, but I think I will always kinda wish for tight 3a/b curls....just a little. ;)

Galadriel 12-27-2011 04:03 PM

Yes, all the time. The hair in front, mostly on the left side are cute Botticelli curls... I want them everywhere, consistently...

Cheetara 12-27-2011 07:34 PM

I want it either way. I would love if my hair were super straight or more curly and uniform. Naturally it's wavy and the pattern is very inconsistent.

riotkitty 12-27-2011 08:11 PM

That post about how wavy hair must be the bane of type A's really made sense to me. I'm kind of a perfectionist, especially about appearance type things and my unpredictable wavy-curly hair that does not have consistent pattern drives me crazy. Also, I don't want to spend a lot of time on my hair and thats just not an option with this type of hair if I want to look presentable. (I still remember some girl calling it "a dead animal" when I was at a waterpark in 7th grade) This was the case even when it was really short.

I envy people that have a mostly consistent texture and pattern to their hair. I don't really care for versatility.

I sometimes wish my hair was all 3b, but then I'm not sure if I would like it if my hair was actually like that. I pretty much like my hair type as it is now and it suits me best.. most of my curls are a combination of 2c/3a with 3b underneath.
