Default Frizz is cute

At least according to my straight haired girlfriend it is! We went swimming yesterday. I pulled my hair back so it wouldn't get wet but I didn't pull it up high enough since it got wet anways. I said how I was gonna have to wear my hair pulled back for the rest of the day. She said "You should take it out and let it curl" I said "It'll frizz" Which is when she said "Aw you should let it, I think it's cute! I would kill to have hair like yours." I just thought I would share this amusing moment with ya'll!

My straight friends says the same about my frizz. She loves it. In fact she tries to create more frizz in my hair and wants to touch it constantly. Of course, I never lose curl with thouching. I just gain frizzy curls, but it still drives me f**king crazy!

^ My "favorite" is when they stand, towering in front of you, grab two handfuls of hair on either side of your head, and ruffle you.

After a day of swimming on vacation the other day, my hair dried into a frizzball and my loving hubby looked over at me and said, "Why don't you wear your hair like that? I love it that way." LOL He's cute and clueless!

I think sometimes that we (me ) are all so obsessed with having the 'perfect' curls that we fail to see the beauty in a little wild frizz. We do not see things through the eyes of a straightie!

I think frizz can be cute, but it depends.

I used to thing all frizz was bad but I saw this do' with curly hair in a half tied up and all the curls spilling out, frizzed a bit but it looked very pretty and natural like windblown. I wanted that look but sadly I couldn't recreate it. Funny thing is, after going outside with my washed hair and my hair half dry, I got the look when I wasn't trying but it only happens once in awhile. And my friends thought I spent a lot of time on it, till I said otherwise. lol

I can see frizz on other people sometimes and think it looks fine, even good, but on me - forget it. I'm constantly battling it, drives me mad!

I don't have a problem at all with a little frizz. Depending on the style, a bit of frizz can add needed body, dimension, or character. It's part of the nature of curly hair- the word "frizzy" comes from the French for curly- "frisť". And it might surprise some people that most English-speaking straighties see the two words as somewhat synonymous, too.

I think we as curlies can get a little too caught up in it- we may have embraced our curls, but an obsession with achieving and maintaining frizz-free curls sometimes seems to have replaced the obsession with achieving and maintaining frizz-free straightened hair.

Aha, they can't help it. There's something about curly hair that appeals to their primal "must touch" nature...

LOL! I stopped over at my neighbor's house the other day while my hair was still damp and crunchy. She hadn't seen it before I scrunched the crunch out before and was very interested. I told her that it wasn't dry yet, so that I couldn't touch it - I need to wait to de-crunchify it. She just about had to sit on her hands to keep herself from it! She was so funny - holding her hands half way between her and I saying, "I wan't to TOUCH IT!" She cracks me up. And no, she didn't touch it!

I have people who come up to me all the time and "boing" my hair. What is it about straighties that makes them think they can touch someone else's hair? It is like going up to a strange pregnant woman and feeling on her stomach. This is totally not normal in my book. Sure, I am fascinated by the straighties with their perfect, well, straightness. But, seriously. How many of us will go up and feel of their hair?
Besides, I still get embarrassed if I happened to have forgotten to scrunch the crunch out before the straighties feel the need to boing it.

I think this is a good point. I don't mind a little frizz, but I do find myself fighting it when it goes beyond my own persoanl acceptance level. I have to keep reminding myself that a natural 3b probably will have at least a little frizz somewhere, and that I'm not goinf to get uniformly shaped frizz free spirals like some ad where the woman has help from a curling iron and photoshop.

I am also far more tolerant of frizz in others than I am of my own frizz.

I think that frizz can be equivalent to the bed head look -- sometimes it's super sexy -- as long as it isn't overdone.

Amazed that I finally found a method that works for my hair! Diffuse until 60-70% dry, then let air dry for about an hour. Scrunch and leave it alone!

I don't mind a bit of frizz, nor do I demand perfection, as long as my curls aren't completely undefined and out of control. It's a balancing act- I like some volume, and the more defined my curls are, the flatter they are. My husband loves it when my hair is a bit frizzed and natural looking.
