Default Straight Hair World

Sometimes i wonder if ppl with naturally straight hair have as much fun as us curly haired ppl. Like, we have all these different routines and ways to get our curls to look a certain way, the adventures with humidity. The universal curly headed language of handfuls upon handfuls of conditioner. The fears of heat damage. The different websites and information about how to care for curly hair.

I wonder if the straight haired world has any fun with their hair? Lol

I'm sure they have fun in their own way, like which curling irons are the best to retain a curl and what hair styles are best for straight hair....or even just regular maintenance on what products to use to have healthy hair ect.

Most of my family on my dads side have straight hair, one of my cousins can't even use conditioner on her hair! She says it gets oily too fast and conditioners weigh it down so she shampoos everyday!! With sulfates!! and her hair dries straight, silky and shiny. She loves my hair though and wishes her hair could hold a curl.

They may have their own straight hair forum secret society...who knows.

Oh they have have one. My straight haired friends have all these tricks to create volume and to tease and backcomb the hair. They compare hairsprays and braiding techniques and, yes, are big fans of curling irons. I also know some straight haired girls who don't use conditioner at all. However, at the end of the day, they always have the option to take a shower, shampoo with whatever's at hand, throw their hair up in a terrycloth turban and then just drop it and go. Must be nice, but I'm happy with my hair nonetheless nowadays because my routine isn't as time consuming as it used to be. Also, my hair holds a style, updo and a braid better than most so that's a plus.

I remember straightening lotions and potions.
Smoothing and soothing stuff.
And flat irons.

I don't on ow about secret societies but I didn't know there was a curly haired one till I decided to try CG agin.
I have the first book since it first came out and I tired a few times but not with real special products so it never looked good enough to keep my interest.

Now I drink up every word here that I think would apply to me and even lots that don't.
I hope I can maintain my commitment this time.

Grow, hair, grow!
