Hair Wars: Revenge Of The Curl

(wasn't that a catchy title? )

Today was such a good day...

- I had three unrelated adults asking me if I have permed my hair to get these curls

- One 12-ish girl asked what she could do to get curls like mine, and what I've done to get curls. "I was born with them", I said. Then she got the Curly Girl book, which I keep at the salon, and told me that I look a lot like Meg Ryan in the wavy picture, "but your hair is curlier than hers!".

I've fought my hair for so long, and now I'm totally in love with it - especially those chunky, strong spirals in the nape that I know will get all the curlier as they grow longer. I realized today that I haven't really let those spirals be as nature intended them to be since I was 12. That's almost 16 years of tugging and pulling and straightening, folks, and yet they're chunky and bouncy.

I love my curls. It only took me 27 years.

Annika, your hair is really pretty. I'm glad that you've found something that works. It also seems like your hair is versatile as far as styling goes. You could wear it wavy, curly or straight without a lot of difficulty.

I'm glad you have learned to love your curls -- and all curls-- and you are trying to educate people about caring for them. Good for you!

And I loved the title! Very catchy!

My mission now is to teach my curly clients to embrace their curls instead of torturing them with brushes and heat and shampoo. It's kind of difficult, as my co-workers all have stick straight, fine, thin, limp hair - so they have taught the clients for years and years that most people don't need conditioner, that curls are bad and need to be disguised, and so on in eternity. I'm kind of fighting a one man war now - me against the straighties.
