I can't stand my hair...

Hello Sorry for the pessimistic title, but I've been feeling kind of down about my hair.

I used to wear my hair naturally half of last year, and always before then. But I always despised it. It used to be straight, but when I hit puberty, it turned into ringlets. Well, because I usually try to embrace whatever I have, I learned (very well) how to manage it. I never had frizz, got the right haircuts, used the right products, the right techniques... But I can't stand the overall natural look. I hate the fullness, and I hate reaching up and feeling spirals. I've always just wanted to feel silky hair, and am always envious when I read about soft hair like that in a book or something XD

For almost a year now, I've worn my hair completely straight. I don't cut it, but I think if I got it cut for a straight look, it would look a little better. I just think I look so much more attractive with straight/wavy hair. Usually I flatiron it stick straight, then braid it, so I obtain uniform braids.

Does anyone else feel like this? It seems like everyone eventually accepts what they've got, but I can't stand my curly hair. I don't want to see it, so immediately after showering, I stick it in a braid.

I've been seriously considering getting my hair straightened, with a Japanese Thermal Reconditioning. It's permanent, and since I wear my hair straight every day anyways, it would be less work. I'm just afraid of any possible side effects.

Any advice? Thanks My hair is 3b, by the way.
Kitchan, I'm not sure this is going to help you at all, but I just posted a thread asking how to get more ringlets! it's in this same forum. I really want ringlets a lot! Why do you not like them so much?

Sorry - I think we always wish for what we don't have.

I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....
