Love them I'm not myself without them...<3<3
Sometimes I think the craziness just curls out of my head..

Blaah, the only thing I don't like is my own texture. ): I wish it were curlier, aha.
Hair Type: 2b/2c (:



I LOVE my curly hair too! I didn't start wearing it curly until this year...heck I didn't even know I had curly hair until this year. It can be a little bit of a hassle wetting it everyday, but once I think about how easier that is than straightening it everyday Im pretty happy.
Curls are the best!!

I used to hate my hair, now that I've found this site, I consider it "okay". Pretty soon, I think I'm going to love it because I'm finally getting face framing layers, some deep conditioner, leave in conditioner and a styling serum. Hopefully that will help, because even if I have enough time to let my hair air dry all the way (which is rare) it'll come out flat on top (for some reason I can't scrunch the top of my hair; it's all dry and stretched and just damaged feeling, even though I haven't straightened in quite a while) and fuzzy/frizzy. It also won't have any shape, which is why I'm getting the layers. Right now all I can really do with my hair is put it in a ponytail or bun.

I love the way it is now. When it was permed, I hated having to have to style it all the time and I hated washing it. Now I love washing and DCing it. It's like a way to pamper myself/my hair, once a week. I take better care of it now too.
I've already posted before buut:

I somewhat like my hair. It's inbetween curly and wavy, so I have a lot of nice tighter ringlets in the back, and very loose, cut ringlets, and little miny s waves/limpy, messed up waves in the front. Some days I really like it, and other days I get really, really envious of other girl's hair. Especially on here. I'm always like "Nooo, my hair looks like **** compared to all these girls! ): " I haven't gone CG yet.. and the only thing I follow that you guys do, is not use a brush. Sooo I wonder what my hair would do if I tryed some of your methods.
Unlike a lot of people on hair with super curly hair, I don't get compliments, except from family. But so what, I don't need other people to make me feel good about my hair. (:
Hair Type: 2b/2c (:

I just started wearing my hair natural and, to be frank, it looks like crap right now. It's frizzy, won't lay flat, undefined....... I seriously thought my hair would come out at least a little better than this.
My hair is: 3b-4a, at my shoulders

My goal: To have my hair down to my waist or near my waist by 2012!

It's a love/hate relationship with me.
Sometimes, though, I wonder why I dislike them because I get complimented on them everyday. Even if I think my hair looks gross some girl tells me, without any prompting, their cute. =]
Yeah I like my curly hair
I love my hair when it curls up into heaps of coils and that jazz, but if I step out of the lines with even ONE product, hello stringlets! >:O Crunchy ugly weighed-down stringlets. I also get a lot of frizz and poofy-ness. My hair is coarse, BIG, thick, dry and made up of 3b ringlets, 3a botticelli curls and 2c curls thrown into the mix. Urgh! I am still grateful for what God gave me though

Yes I do. I used to hate it and wished it bounced and swayed. But I know see it for for what it really is and work with it and not against it. And that makes all the difference.

Actually took me about 3 years to love my curls and now i would't change it for the world!!! I have 2c-3b hair and I absolutly love it!!! I was in denial 'cause when I was around 7 my pin straight (yes yes what a shame lol XD) hair turned into very frizzy curls. I blow dried almost every day until I was nine. But I stopped because it was unhealthy. So i grew to LOVE my Curlie Locks and I haven't blowdried them in about 4 months and they look extremly healthy!!!


There have certainly been times in my life when I would have sold my own mother to have straight, silky hair. In my late teens, I met a stylist who actually knew what to do with curls, and I was absolutely dazzled by her finesse, as I'd seriously never known I could be more than a giant frizz ball. Now, I wouldn't trade my curls for the world. They're soft, pretty, don't take very much at all to maintain, and they're MINE, so I always treat them with love.
Fine, porous 3a with some 3b...

I love my hair. I think it's what makes me me. Even though I'm kinda in the transitioning stage where it looks all frizzy and I'm still experimenting with everything, I love the progress I'm making. It may take a lot of shower time, products, money, care, attention, etc..., but I agree with what some people have already said on here.....It's worth it.

CG since February '09

I didn't start wearing my hair natural until I became pregnant. It was a tough transition since I was quite aggravated with the multitextures in my hair. I finally got all of the processed hair out of my hair and i must say that I am very grateful that my little girl helped to push me to make the switch instead of having to always style and put heat on my hair. It's also interesting because my hair is the same texture of the weave that I used to favor. I am a huge lover of curly hair, i just didn't remember having that hair myself. lol

In other words i love my hair. Nice and thick with a healthy sheen and growing strong

Sorry for the size of the photo......i have to get used to resizing them....

Never liked it, I think I never will. I like other people's curls, but not my own.
Me too. I keep hoping I'll get there, and it does have some good days. I take good care of my hair and try to make it look/feel its best and I don't plan to relax it again, ever, but...bottom line, I would prefer it if it were straight.
Modified CG. You'll pry my 'cones from my cold dead fingers! Mixed waves, coarse, below shoulder length, dark brown. I hate my hair but I'm trying to learn to accept it.
