What do you like about your hair today?

Like Tree118Likes

I notice that I post threads whenever something bothers me about my hair. I notice that when I comment on my own hair in 7 Day Challenge - who's up for it? most of my remarks focus on the things that I don't like about it.

Obviously I am my worst critic, but one of the most important things I've learned about criticism is that it should have a bit of both: pointing out things to improve on as well as things that are really good already.

With this thread I want to focus more on the things that I do like about my hair, which hopefully will help me to accept its imperfections. I still believe it's good to keep improving things, but I should be more appreciative of what I already have.

So post today's picture of your hair and tell us what you like about it

This was yesterday (it's morning here and I'm still plopping so yesterday's picture it is for now):



I like the big, chunky curls on the front of the right side.
I like that it looks really natural and has quite some volume on the right side.
I like the right side, apparently :P (from my perspective btw, so the left when you look at the picture).

Today I like.....

1. That my hair has more volume that it normally does.
2. That the curls are bouncier.
3. That there is less frizz.
4. That I'm not fussing over it and just letting it do what it wants.

This morning, I told myself to get over it and just let it be. Some frizz is okay and I need to stop trying to perfect it. So, I'm having a good hair day for now. =)

I like that I remembered to not use a gel with glycerin because the dews are low today and I have almost no frizz.

I LOVE that I have big, fat curls around the sides and the beginnings of some spirals in the back since I've been letting it grow.

I like that it seems very shiny and bouncy and very soft and well moisturized. I seem to have found my balance with products and moisture.

BEAUTIFUL hair, ladies!

I haven't really even looked at my hair today. I'm on 3rd day hair and I don't think it's terrible. I *do* have a haircut tomorrow and I'm *super* pumped about it.

Today (actually this afternoon), I like the major curl action I have going on when I COMBED MY HAIR after applying product.

I also like that I didn't have to worry about growing out my gray, since I never dyed to cover it up. (I overheard two ladies talking about wanting to grow out their gray, but didn't want to deal with the stripe.)
I absolutely love this thread. I tend to be super critical of my own hair too, to the point where I forget to look at the good sides.

Today I like the fact that I'm hardly wearing any product in my hair either (except for KCSS) and that my hair feels so light and bouncy!



I really like the way everyone else's curls look too. Way to embrace everything about our hair, right?

I'm definitely a "curly" 2c. Sometimes curly and sometimes just wavy upper layer with a ringlety under layer. My hair has been thick and coarse since birth. Strawberry blonde in color that can and does change depending on the type and amount of light.


All in all, I'm happy with my hair type but almost for sure think yours is prettier.

I like this thread. My hair can be very overwhelming and it's hard to appreciate it sometimes. Now I can take the time to remind myself of my hair's positives

Today my ponytail was super bouncy and light as a feather Due to banding it was longer than usual (almost full APL) and because I used an activator gel my hair was very fluffy.
Curl Pattern: Chunks of 3B, 4A, and 4B mixed all up in this odd head of hair of mine.

Normal porosity, high density, medium width strands.

Current length: Between armpit length and bra strap length
Short-term goal: Bra strap length
Long-term goal: Mid-back length
Ultimate Goal: Waist length

I love the versatility of my hair with this new cut! It was curly last night, slept on it and didn't have to do anything to it this morning, not even product! Sporting the waves. And BONUS - it's been sprinkling rain all morning, so during my 5 minute walk into work, my curls sprang up and it looks 10x better!

I love being a wavy & curly head
