Proud to be curly
It took a very long time for me to be proud of my curls. From the time I was very little until I was halfway through college I hated my curls I wanted hair like everyone around me maybe a little wavy but not curly and frizzy I wanted straight hair I would run a pencil through and not get it stuck. I realized the same thing was happening to my little nice who has the same exact hair u do but I thought it was beautiful on her. I started taking better care of my hair and received many compliments and realize that I'm very lucky to be born withthis hair if I straighten my hair it looks like I was born with straight hair and if I leave it the way it is I know the no person with straight hair can duplicate mine. i am very happy to prove to my niece that there is nothing wrong with our hair that it's beautiful and unique and we should flaunt it and create for it:)
Proud of my 3B curls 23 years old
Good for you, I know first hand how great it is to finally come to terms with your hair. Maybe due to your example it won't take your niece so long to fall in love with her curls as well.
Good for you. It is definitely something to be proud. I, however, am one where it took a long time. Plus, as a guy it was a tougher uphill climb to be proud.
When I was 14, I went three months without cutting my hair and wound up with white man's 'fro with lots of curls. I got some compliments but mostly needling. There were a few male friends that said, "I looked like a girl." For the next 19 years, I went away from that look and went short and cropped, sometimes even buzzcut.
When I was 33, I started seeing male friends lose a lot of their hair so I got to thinking, "Well, maybe I should grow it out. I may not have it 20 years from now." I have thinned out some but then again I had a lot to lose. For the next seven years, I started going about 6-8 weeks between haircuts with curls really coming in after 3 1/2 weeks.
This past summer, I ended up going three months to really let the head of curls show. I even started using curl shapping spray from Garnier Fructis. Now I go every three months between haircuts and have my stylist leave it longer after cutting it.
I'm no product expert and every head of hair is different which is why I feel uncomfortable giving advice. Ladies, just remember, "getting your man to accept/embrace his curls is probably a bigger battle than finding the right products."
I'm just glad I finally came around to loving my curls in my early-to-mid-30s.
"Curls aren't just for girls."
Sometimes i just wanna rock a curly girl t shirt everyday. I absolutely love my curly hair. I just hate that for so long i never knew i had it since i got my first relaxer at the age of 6 and my last one at the age of 23.
I stopped relaxing almost 3 years ago and was completely natural 2 years ago.
I find myself having moments where i just absolutely want to be vain and i boing my curls and play with them. It amuses me bc im still new to it.
I wish there was a such thing as Curly Pride Day or Curl Awareness month!!
LOVE my curls!
