I prefer my hair curly, especially since going CG. It makes me feel super pretty. And I've gotten a lot of compliments since I started. However, most of my family likes it straight. I don't mind it straight but I don't feel like me with straight hair.

Just to echo what others have said, I've received so many random comments and compliments on my curls that I never get with straight hair. Makes me feel special.

Wavy. I'm naturally wavy. I love using mag sulphate to make it curlier. My flat iron is sitting useless for the past three months lol

In a way, I feel more attractive with straight hair. That makes me sad, though, because my curls are a part of me. I get mixed reviews, lots of people love my curls but some think I look better with it straight. I don't straighten often, anyway, and I do love my hair to bits, but that nagging influence is still there, you know?

Absolutely curly. I've only straightened my hair a few times but I felt weird, dull, invisible, and boring. I feel much more attractive, relaxed, vibrant, interesting, and "me" with it curly.

Definitely with my curly (well, mostly wavy) hair. So far, everyone else seems to agree! I only decided to stop straightening my hair about three weeks ago, and when I made the decision to give CG a shot I asked my boyfriend if he preferred straight or curly hair. He said straight (to which I said, too bad, I'm trying curly!). He now can't stop saying how much he prefers my wavy look. I think it suits my face a lot better. Plus, I'll admit I was terrible at styling it straight. I am also much more relaxed and happy with my hair curly; I love how much movement and bounce it has, so I am no longer trying to stay still and avoid frizzing it.

Curly definitely. I straightened a couple days ago and I didn't like it very much. I don't like having to fight with my hair. I like long hair though and right now mine is so short when it's curly. But I'll get there!

I feel way sexier with straight hair. I have been fighting curls my whole life (I'm 27!!!) and I think I equate straight with put together, because it takes me so long to do!

If my hair was longer, and as it gets longer (straight it's like 3-4 inches passed my shoulders, but curly it's an inch passed), I feel sexier. It's this sort of unique vibe...like that I have something exotic on everyone else.

My husband adores my curly hair. He has 3C curls himself, so he definitely appreciates the beauty of a good curl.

Curly for sure. Where I live everyone from 1-4c hair texture always compliment my hair. I feel more unique with my curls. Whenever I wear my hair straight for too long I go insane because I really want my curls to come back. I straighten it like once a year and one time I tricked them and told them I permed it and they almost killed me. lol. Learned my lesson there.

I feel just as good about myself with my hair straight as I do with it curly. I use to like my straight hair better because it was easier for me to take care of but now that I know how to care for my curly hair I wear it curly most of the time. I do think I look different with straight hair, it seems to change the shape of my face and give me a different look altogether which I really do like but I like having such versatile hair.

I feel prettier with my curls, and I prefer to wear it curly. When I straighten it I usually instantly regret it and go back to curly after a few days (I straighten my hair when I get bored with curly lol) and I feel more plain and my face looks fatter with straight hair. I like it curly because it hides flaws and I like volume. It suits me better and it fits my personality.

I feel most attractive when I'm having a good curly day-when it's defined, big, shiny, and spirally, that's when I feel most confident. I don't get that with straight hair-I look too normal!

Curly!
It's always a novelty when I straighten (maybe 2-3x per year), and it gets lots of notice, but most people say they like it better curly. It doesn't look like me. It's fun to run my hands through my hair freely for a couple of days, but I think I look odd & plain.

Curly (well, when it behaves!) Seriously, I like it curly. When it gets straightened I feel I look like a newscaster...and that's just not me. My hubby likes it curly too. He always hated it when I come home from a haircut with straight hair. But those days are gone since I've found a curly salon!

Straight. (when the humidity is in check, of course!) But I'm also really good at straightening it...

I've been on a mission of "hair acceptance" lately, I guess you could say.

Oh well, my BF likes it curly, I guess I should be happy about that!

Curly, with out a doubt. My hair looks good straight, when I have the right cut for it, but it can not compare to my giant natural hair state.

I can literally count the number of times I have straightened my hair, over the past 15 years, on 2 hands.
