Curly vs Straight (thought this was interesting)

A girl did an experiment to see which guys preferred by making profiles on a dating site using a curly pic and straight.
The results and dates made it interesting.

Currently using:
Cowash: Brown Sugar, V05 CC
Conditioner: V05 Moisturizing , Ion Effective
Leave-in: V05
Gel: HETT
2c/3a?
overly Porous, coarse, thick, normal elasticity.


Still searching for the perfect formula for curls!
Hmm, interesting. I guess it shows that hair doesn't really matter. I get the feeling the girl felt more confident with one style than the other, so I think that made a difference in her results.

3a/b brunette curls
Modified CG-ish (sulfates, but no cones. Works for me :P)
Cleanse: Suave Coconut shampoo
Condition:Herbal Essences Hello Hydration
Stylers: AG Re:Coil and whatever gel I can find.
Double-plopping, octopus clipping (dry), and recently, diffusing.

I loved that <3 haha I'm googling now for more experiments like that.
I think it has to do with the picture. The one with straight hair has a large smile tan skin, and she's pretty much exuding confidence. Whereas the curly haired one looks more mom, shy, and sweet.

Yeah, I have to admit, I found the article to be hall-of-shame worthy, which is why I decided to write a blog post about it. Would be interested in other people's opinions.

I take offense to the very nature of these sorts of articles. Pretty much any popular women's magazines do this sort of thing. (Cosmo, I'm looking at you.) Their fundamental premise is that you need to look this way or that way and then men will want your bod because it will be good enough for them then.

Ummm... Forgive me, but who the hell cares about any of this crap? First of all, why is it assumed that men's approval is critical to any given woman's happiness? Secondly, why is it assumed that ALL men can only possibly be attracted to ONE thing? Ugh... I am not sure if I am making sense right now (it's late and I'm tired) but it's just sickens me.

The title of this article: "What do men prefer?"... Really? As if their is a consensus amongst the male gender or something. And even then, even if the entire male gender in North America prefered one or the other - why on earth does it matter? I am a human being. MEN are human beings. I think we are above this kind of superficial nonsense when it comes to one-on-one interactions, but certainly not when speaking in generalities.

ETA: You're welcome! By the way, I think we may be hair twins of sorts!

Here's the link: Curly or Straight?
I think your curls are beautiful and much more flattering than in the straight pic. I don't always prefer curly but in your case, definitely. Not sure what emo is - a music style?
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
