My mom wasn't sure if I had very loose waves or curly hair for the longest time when she took care of my hair growing up. The hair around my face would curl but it just seemed that was that. My mom...

I agree here, and I would say it's silly to think Asians, blacks and other non-Caucasians will be able to look good with blonde hair or lighter eye color. There's been enough research to support the...

I recently read that curly haired people are less likely to have oily hair compared to straight haired people. It could explain why a lot of those techniques are going to be used more by straight...

If someone wants to use shampoo, that's their prerogative. I can state my view as much as I want but if I am wrong in their eyes, it will start an argument. That's just the way it is sometimes. Why...

I use duckbill clips and pin the curls up for a bit while they dry, and I use bobby pins to lift them, too. I also refresh the areas by smoothing them over with a fine tooth comb or my fingers...

The use of a brush is what gets me. How can people really expect using a brush on curly hair would ever yield good results? Or using a fine tooth comb? They both ruin curls, except one makes you look...

I disagree with that, every misconception or prejudice people ever had in the past was eradicated by "education". I'd say that by sheer virtue of "saturation" the majority of people (and note that...

I had no idea about the distilled water. My water is hard (ruins the dishes) so I'll have to give that a try.

Exactly, which is why intervening isn't a matter of stepping in the same way we would if we saw someone defacing a building and calling the police.

I use a spray bottle that spritzes my hair with the lightest touch of water so it doesn't look like I was in a downpour. I do it in sections and then "smooth" out the curls with my fingers and...

If I had to do that, I'd end up wearing my hair much, much shorter or just call it quits and use shampoo again (shudders).

I can commit to all the rules but #2 and #5. I do use my diffuser a few times each week, but I put it on a low setting and use cool. I also use a fine tooth comb through my hair to set curls, but I...

This was my hair last summer. I cut it all since then, but it's slowly growing back. My curl structure has changed as I've aged.

Wow, mothers can be so nice!!

My mom does like my hair, but she dislikes my face. So it's like she's telling me I am just wearing a mask or something. "At least your hair looks nice" or some crap.

How do you keep your curl shape and pattern doing that? When I had waist-length hair, I needed to use a diffuser and conditioner or else it would have been tangles central.

I'd only do that after the shower, too. I've heard of some women brushing their hair when it's dry, and all I can think of is a giant really bad 1980's pouf. A lot of the LH people also say to fine...

I think WO would be more beneficial for very short hair. If you've got hair longer than your shoulders, I doubt it would work out too well.
