Teri's story on whether men prefer curly or straight hair reminded me of an experience that happened to me in college. I was so sure that men preferred straight hair, that I decided to get mine chemically straightened. I could tell mid-way through that something was wrong. The stylist had a scared look on his face, and then said he wasn't going to charge me for it - obviously not a good sign. As I was working out at the gym, I noticed big hunks of hair dropping to the floor. After washing my hair in the shower, it was clear that I had received a chemical haircut. I looked like I had mange. My hair was broken off in huge sections. My boyfriend told me my forehead looked like it had grown. The bottom line. Men don't necessarily prefer hair curly or straight. They just prefer that you have hair. To read Teri's original story click here.
Dating in a Curly World
As co-founder of NaturallyCurly.com, a website for curly hair she began with her business partner and friend, Gretchen Heber, Michelle Breyer helped create the leading community and resource for people with curly hair. Frustrated by the lack of information on curly hair and the limited products available in the marketplace, the duo launched the site in 1998 with the help of a 14-year-old web designer. When Procter & Gamble called three years later to advertise to the NaturallyCurly.com® audience, Breyer knew they had indeed created a force in the industry, providing helpful information and unparalleled expertise for what was then considered a niche market.
