Why do you love your curly hair?

I was born with straight hair that changed and now I have 2c hair, and I am so grateful for it every day. I mean, sure it's a little crazy sometimes, and sure, I typically groan in frustration when I see my hair after I wake up, but there is something about it that makes it so... Different than straight hair. I mean, straight hair was ok, but I never felt like it was original. It wasn't unique. Everyone had straight hair, and now that I have wavy/curly hair, I feel amazing! I look in the mirror and see a girl who is finally grinning from ear to ear. Not to mention whenever a wind blows I feel like a star in a VS commercial; with my straight hair, I'd be panicking about it getting knotted.
Not to mention the people who are constantly complimenting curly hair! So many compliments and while the petting is a little.. well, odd, I am totally willing to deal with it for my hair!

What do you love about your curly hair?
Mostly 2c hair, with a little mix of 2b to the back. Not on the CG method yet, but plan on going on it ASAP.

thanks for this post!

I love my curly hair because there is still so much for me to learn about it. There are so many diff ways I can style it. I love the curly community. I love that no ones curls are the same as the next ones curls. Its a curly world lol! 😛

I love my wavy/curly hair because it's BIG, and I love big hair. I get complimented on my hair nearly every time I go out somewhere.

I also used to have straight hair too! Up until about 3 years ago. Now it is a mixture of 2c on the bottom third and 2b on top. I love the change, there's just so much more to do with curly hair.

I agree, there is so much more to do with curly hair! Unfortunately, my hair is quite flat on top, so I do have to play with it a bit to voluminize it. But my hair seems happier than it's every been!

Volume. Mine has actually been thinned all my adult life, and volume is still the thing i like most, so much easier to take some volume out of my hair than it is to get some in to straight hair.
3a BSL (usually styled to look 2 b/c).
Fine, dry, very dense (thinned and I like it). Kinks and fairy knots.
Allergies, fragrance issues.
Long term hair dyer - henna and chemical dyes.
LOC - Not CG

Currently liking Be Unique (UK made range), Au Naturel, and Curls Unleashed bits.
I love how my hair is super curly after I wash and after a day or so it goes down to beach waves. I get the best of both worlds like that I guess- and if I want super curly hair I use a product and it doesn't go to waves.
I love my hair because it's versatile, it's different, and honestly it doesn't take a ton of work! Sure there are times when I get pretty frustrated with it, but when I do have a good hair day, I feel amazing.
3A, low/medium porosity, medium thickness
Shampoo: SheaMoisture shampoos
Conditioner: SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner
Leave-in: Kinky Curly Knot Today



I've come to appreciate the multiple curl types I now see... the big Boticelli-type ones on the sides and near the nape of my neck, to the every-which-way loose curls and waves gracing the crown (and even the pretty much wavy-close-to-straight piece that hangs down from my forehead... I sweep it across my forehead and it falls back down in an effort to poke me in the eye. Oh well)!!!

It was so easy to be frustrated over this last year while growing it out and letting it be. However, I put aside my 'should be' to 'is' and I'm a lot happier.

Keep kurly!!!
Mix of fine 2C/3A...high-porosity (naughty flat-ironing!!!).

*Shampoo and Condish - no-poo (baking soda / ACV) and Shea Moisture Shine & Moisture shampoo as hair dictates.
*DT - playing with Redken 'all soft' Heavy Cream.
*LI - Carol's Daughter Hair Milk LI; argan oil on ends.
*Styling - KCCC, mix of water and Carol's Daughter Refresher Spray for anything past day 1... get 4-5 days out of a washing. Score!!!
I love about my curly hair that it compliments my character :P that I don't have to wash it everyday. That it cannot be tamed unless with flat irons /straighteners so life remains interesting every day

I used to get really angry when some ppl told me to brush my hair. Or asked if I ever brush it. Erm. no. unless in the shower. I got CURLS, and no need for a wishmob-costume stunt.

Hairdressers always cut off too much despite telling me how healthy they were, because they could not do long layers that much down if also framing the face. My own sister and mother advise me to chop it and convinced me too many times (I then disliked my curls till they grew back a certain length). Others however always admired them. Long and wavy/curly. Odd.
