Hello my fellow curlies!
I'm new here, very very happy to have found you all, because believe it or not, I don't know anyone at all with real curly hair! My sister moans that hers is "frizzy and kinky" when its actually poker straight, don't know what planet shes on
Anyway, I just want to tell you about this awful habit I have gotten into, I know its going to make you cringe, its not good. I had TR done ages ago, and took loads of damage at the root, causing a 90 degree bend. Those bends started to snap, and I got into this habit of gently pulling through each strand from the root, til i reached the bend, trying to force it out. What happened instead was, the bend would snap and the hair would embed into my finger...youchy...
Now I have waist length hair, only 5 inches at the ends which are still straight, but I'm still pulling the strands through my fingers. And when I come across an irregularity (there are LOTS) I scrape my nail across it, trying to iron it out....and yes, they snap. I know this is damaging my hair, and I'm trying to stop, someone needs to tie my hands together!
Do any of you always touch your hair? I touch the frizzy bits most, trying to calm them, and of course, this worsens the whole thing. Very hard habit to break!!
Glad to be here, and hoping to find ways to finally love my curls!
Love Liz x
