Straight vs. Curly . . . Post Your Pics!

This was a good idea for a thread. I think the curls take years off for sure! (as others have said) And they make everyone look so fun too. I'd join in but I've never straightened my hair..........

length: slightly past tailbone when pulled tight
normal routine: Nature's Gate shampoo (on scalp only), Suave Aloe conditioner, apple cider vinegar, raw shea butter, FOTE Aloe Vera Gel, TRESemme Curl Locking spray (occasionally).

These were taken a couple of months apart. I had gone back to my naturally dark color in the curly pic. Sorry about the size, I don't know how to make smaller

I don't think I have any straight haired pictures downloaded. Best I can do is compare curly pics with short hair ones.

babywavy~I love your new short cut! I've been thinking lately about chopping mine off, too. Are you happy with it? As much as I get sick of my long hair, I am scared to cut it off!

I loooove it.

Sometimes i'll start to miss my curls, and then I'll remind myself of how much work they took, and how I wasn't garuanteed that they would come out right.
Okay, I'll play too. These are about four years old. My hair isn't red anymore...



I don't know what products anymore... got CKT!

Okay, I'll play along, too!

These pictures were taken about 5 months apart. Maybe less.


Straight hair:




I'm gonna post 2 curly pics. The red-haired one is me with my Henna Head and was taken in July. The other one was taken in February-ish.




Oh, yeah. And I think my hair is curlier than this photo, but I might be high, too.

This area is under construction as my hair type changed and nothing works well for me. I shampoo, I condition and pretty much have done nothing but chuck my hair in a messy bun for the past oh...year? Yeah, I'm that lazy.

No...going no-poo or CG does not work for me. It leaves me overconditioned and oily in a second no matter what I use, so that's not what's not working.
This morning


Right now

Sairis, I agree, I do think I look younger with it curly. Also, its inherent coarseness does make it lose its luster when straighter. I don't do it often, but it is fun to see the shrinkage difference!

Oreosmakemehappy, yeah, I wish it was that long curly!! I dye it too much to see that though...

SunshineGrrl, I'm obviously biased, But I loooove the red!
Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
Woah babywavy, if I was that cute in short hair I'd wear it that way too! And it's so YOUNG on you in a totally good way! Love love love it!

Lady Noa you gimme your hair now! wohoo that is some gorgeous hair!

I'd show mine straight but umm cant' find any and it's probably way scary since I'm no good at straightening. Fear the big hair, it is NOT your friend!
2c/3a?
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
You guys look great both ways!
I just realized how few pictures I have of myself.

Instead of putting them in as attachments, if you right click on the photo you want to post and go to properties, under address or location, it'll have something there. Copy that location, then in here, click on the insert image link. It has mountains with something that looks like a postage stamp, then just paste the location in there. Voila! Inserted pictures instead of attached!

I know, it's the lazy cop out way... I should be ashamed of myself.

Thank you! That "nice and flat" look took about 40 minutes of flat-ironing every day, lol.
