Yay, this is fun! All of you have such beautiful hair. Here's mine straight:



And curly:



The above photo is about two months old. My curls have tightened up a lot - went from 2c to 3b in some areas! - since it was taken. I attribute it to summer weather and my prolonged commitment to the CG routine (caved in and shampooed last week, though , I had to start over and I'm still recovering from the damage). So I don't have any really recent photos of my hair. :-/

Lol maybe it's because curly hair is more fun and spunky and gives people a playful, youthful appearance and glow. That's 1 up for curlies!

I concur! Curly hair is definitely more fun and free-spirited, but it can still look professional and grown-up, too.

Here's mine! They are at least a year old. But, they are cut with the same hairstyle. My bangs have since grown out and I think it may be a inch or two shorter now!

Okay, I'll play.

Straight (in January):


Curly (end of April - around day 20 of CG):


I'm still experimenting with different products, so I still have a lot of frizz.

I'll play. First two are straight hair for pictures that I had taken. Third is curly pre-CG and last one is about a month Mod-CG. Sorry it isn't very good.

These are a couple of years old, but they are from around the same time. I simply haven't straightened my hair in a long time! Also, my hair is much longer now. First, the straight:



And now, the curly!!!



I'd say I look like I'm having a lot more fun in the curly photo.

Aww! Thank you! Unfortunately I got a wild hair and colored it brunette. It turned black. I hate it hate it hate it. In time I'll be red again. LOL

BTW, your hair is gorgeous!!!
