Default Hair Envy

I ask this because I have a problem with being envious of other people's hair when I am on this site. Once in a blue moon I will see somebody who's hair I admire in person. But ever since I became a member on a daily basis I get overwhelmed by all the beautiful hair here. Anyways, I just wanted to see how many other people struggle with being jealous of others hair here on naturallycurly.com.

I'm not sure if envy is strong enough, but I admire many of the curly heads here for their well taken care of tresses. I have seen some 3c hair that I would love to have isnce I love tight corkscrews, but I'm a 3b, so that is that.

I do love my hair a lot more since coming here and switching up my routine though. The support here also helps when I spend too much time in a straight haired environment.

I do admire many of the tighter curlies, but I wouldn't be me without my own looser waves and curls.

There are a lot of heads here that I admire, but I have so much love for my own hair and am having so much fun playing with it, I don't want anyone elses (even on the bad days). The gift that I got from nc.com is how beautiful curly heads take care of their hair.

ITA! I am coaxing my hair to health and I love seeing healthy, well-styled heads of hair. There are quite a few heads of hair I really like on here, but even if a genie came along, I don't see myself trading my hair. I would feel like I was abandoning it My dream hair is my own hair at its peak.

Now that I have gotten my hair long and healthy, I wouldn't trade them for anyone else's. There are some curlis here whose pictures I never get enough of such as Internetchick's and Tooj68's because our curls are very similar, but I still have mad love for my own curls, nonetheless!

I wouldn't say I'm envious b/c I am very happy w/ my hair the way it is - it's my trademark. But I certainly do see lots of curly hair on this site that I think is gorgeous. I love all curly hair - I think it's beautiful.

Really, I love my own hair and I don't think I would change it. But, a woman I work with has incredible 3c hair that I just adore. And, I also love this woman's hair: yoga teacher Seane Corn.

Well, plus she can do a lot of poses that I am still working on!

I do love my hair, but sometimes I wish I had waves, or some 4B curls, or just something different. If I had 4B curls I would part my hair right down the middle and have two cute puffs on each side I envy several of the curlies here

I have horrible hair envy, even though my hair really isn't all that bad. I think I'm just more critical of my own hair, and it's easier to appreciate someone else's. Ab-star is my absolute hair idol, but there's so many beautiful heads of curls here!

I have hair envy because I am transitioning and haven't yet seen my real hair texture in full effect. I look at other ppls curly heads and hope mine might be like that bc my texture might resembles what theirs already is.

I have hair envy not just on here but IRL as well. I envy anyone with thick hair, regardless of curliness.

I love alot of peoples hair on here but I wouldn't really trade mine but for maybe 2 or 3 peoples. Not that a ton of curlies don't have great hair, just that I really like my own hair. But if it would just be a little bit curlier I would be happy. To name one hair idol, if I could have Plink's hair I would be estatic!

My friends little sister wears her 3c/4a hair like that--it's looks so cute.
