True Curlies: Are wavies inferior to curlies?

When the revolution comes, wavies will be revealed for the low imposters that they are and driven into the mines along with their secret compatriots, the straighties, and forced to excavate long tunnels that will be used for super secret curly hair styling research. Curlies who straighten will be sent to reeducation camps and allowed to reenter society as upper servants and overseers of the wavie internment camps. Straighties will be forced to sleep in the mines in large corrals, and fed only once a day. Thus will the curlies assert their true nature and reform society as God no doubt intended from creation.

Nappy...and oh-so happy
Whoever heard of a true straightie with frizz? Fighting frizz and making curl/wave definition is something unique to curly and wavy hair.

On a couple occasions I asked what makeup she was wearing & she said none! And her eyes, they're a real pretty deep brown.

Customers avoid trying to ask her questions because they think she's Hispanic/because they can't talk Spanish!

IMO curlies have it way easier than we do! Wavy hair is different from day to day. You can never get a consistent pattern as you can with curly hair.

3a/b, fine, lots of it

I have no experience of wavy hair so I this kind of nullifies the comment, but it seems wavy hair is easier to maintain (correct me if i'm wrong!) and although it'll still frizz or be undefined, it can pass easier for 'straight' hair and get tied back easier etc. Before I found this site I did only used to consider 'real' curly hair the sort of curls I have and above, but now I've read all these boards and the trials and tribulations of a wavy i'm not so sure... Obviouslly 'wavy' is a looser form of 'curly' but then 'wavy' is a more excitable form of 'straight'. Wavy is also unique, its neither straight or curly.

Somedays I really long for wavy hair. It looks a lot more 'romantic' and almost natural (not saying curls arent natural, but it just seems...free-er). I LOVE the girls hair in the CG book, when LM goes on about colouring curls one curl at a time so they're like ribbons of light. A wavy is holding her head back, and its bright blonde with gorgeous waves. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

But lets not be curlist and try segregate ourselves. There is a definite split between straight/not-straight and wavies and curlies alike stand on the 'not-straight' side.

cleanse: OS shampoo. PureNuffStuff cleanser.
condition: Aussie 3MM. Jessicurl Aloeba.
style: B2Basics GreenTeaGel. T&G Curl Balm. JCarter Nourish&Shine.

Ha, this reminds me of a funny story from years ago.

I worked with (and became pretty good friends with) a very nice, cute guy with chin-length, "rock star" hair. (He had a band too :P )

We worked at the bookstore together, and one day we came across the book We Were Soldiers Once, And Young. (A girl who posts here is the author's granddaughter!)

Me: I know this guy's granddaughter!
Him: Really?
Me: Well, I don't KNOW her, she's also on the website I go to, naturallycurly.com.
Him: Naturallycurly.com? Hmmm.
Me: Yup.
Him: Is there a naturallywavy.com that I can go to?
Me: You can come to our site...I would say you are a 2B.
Him: A 2b?
Me: That is how you classify curly hairtypes...like, I'm a 3B and Felicia (woman we worked with) is probably a 4A.
Him: I'm scared to go to this site! Do the 4's and the 3's, like, beat up and boss around the 2s?

It was SO FUNNY

I am a wavy you used to long to be curlier! Now, I love my three day hair waves! It took me almost a year to really accept and love my waves for what they are, but, I think I have them figured out!!

For a long time it was very hard to be caught on the isle of indecision between straight and curly. I think that I would not have accepted my waves for what they are without the help of a lot of wonderful "curly" girls. Straight girls have been now help to me, so, I say wavies need curlies
