You look pretty both ways, but best curly.

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. :-/

OMG......love your hair!!!!

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!

You know, I have to agree with those who are saying that we look older with straight hair than with curly hair.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.

opera_curls......I love your hair color in the curly pics!!!! Your curls look great!
WOW! I love everyones hair, and all of you guys have absoultely gorgeous curly hair, I'm amazed! Okay well here go mine, and I'm debating on whether to be the freak with no face, but I'll take a chance. Here goes nothing (this is a cruel game):

For some reason my pictures wont post, how did all of you guys take it from your files and download it without using photobucket?
~Meena

I cant fight my curls
I cant control my curls

I've never done this, because I link to photobucket
But if you scroll down on the reply page there's an "additional options" that has an attach files area. I'm guessing that's where you can upload photo files directly from your computer's hard drive. Then they'll appear as thumbnails, not in the body of the post.
layer cake of tight, spongy and silky/thready S strands that kink more than they coil
spiced with a few spiral coils and non-curling waves
mostly medium and fine with a sprinkle of coarse strands
protein is yummy

Just click "post reply", go down to where it says additional options and click on "manage attachments". Then select the file from where you have it saved on your computer. I right-clicked your image and chose to save it on my desktop so I could attach it for this post:
(I don't know about your other pic, so I could only post this one)

The first is my hair yesterday, on a good hair day. The next two are of my hair a week or so ago when I used a flat iron. I have no idea how I got it this straight--I guess it's because I'd never had layers before?

IMHO the curls frame my face better and are way more fun/less work and damage!

You absolutely benefit from the curls. Much better at framing your face than the straight hair.
Thanks Sairis.

And I'd just like to say that every single person who posted, I think looks best with curly hair. Always better un-blowfried! This thread is so inspiring!!!
