do you like your curly hair?

Like Tree26Likes

I do and I don't like many have said. There are some days that I love my hair and some that I wish it just didn't exist. But that being said I don't think I could see myself with any other hair type. I love that I have tightish curls. I just wish they could have more volume but less frizz but I guess those two things kinda go hand in hand. Now I just want it to be longer. Dang me and wanting to cut my hair a few months ago lol

I love my curly hair, it looks so velvet...plush...and I can't wait until it grows long again.

My hair sensuous...just-like-me!!! LOL!!!

Also, I love being a part of all the women that are embracing their own "natural" hair and not being forced to torture their hair into being something it is not.

I love my curls 💕 they are beautiful, unique, and set me apart. The only things I don't like sometimes are the shrinkage and frizz...but I have learned to love my curls no matter what. 😊 I embrace them everyday and plan on never dying or using heat on them again! do you like your curly hair?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1382758413.134156.jpg

I would love my curls too if they looked like that

It really depends. Some days, it'll look a mess, I can't get it to go right, and I just want to shave it all off. But other days if it looks good I love it and get a lot of compliments because basically it's my best feature.
I also only feel like me when it's all natural, even when it looks awful I don't straighten it because it just doesn't show off who I am.
Even though I get bad hair days (who doesn't, right?) I must say that I truly love my curly hair. I get asked all the time if my hair is permed or do I curl it myself, I love being a curly force to reckon with on a street of all straight haired women. It makes me who I am, and my husband loves it too. He's the one who convinced me to wear it curly and be who I really am, thank god he told me that, he was right
I really like my curly hair and can't imagine going back to straight. Sure, some days my hair doesn't look awesome, but I had more 'non-awesome' days when I was straightening it as just a little bit of wind or rain would make it look awful.

Curls just suit my personality more and make me feel more confident

Growing my hair to WL when dry
I really like my curlyness. I've straightened before, maybe 10x in my whole life, and it looked ok but not as good as normal/curly. When I was younger all my friends had straight hair, and they'd brush it, and so I'd brush mine dry like them. I didn't understand WHY mine didn't look like theirs lol. Once I discovered leave ins and gel/ mousse it was great!

As a guy it was hard for me to go against the grain. I wore it long with curls in my early teen years but got made fun of for "looking like a girl" so that led me to wear it short (sometimes buzz cut) for 20 years. Then in my early to mid 30s I saw guys my age lose their hair, which inspired me to grow it out. With regard to curls, I reached the, "if you got 'em, flaunt 'em stage." It took me all these years to release that curly hair is a blessing not a curse.

Bobby: there's a lot of guys with curly hair, don't take that from people. They clearly have no idea what they are talking about.

I guess the older you get, the less you care what others think and you are more secure doing something you want. At 41, I long since reached that stage. I also think participating on this site (not just the curly men forum) has helped me as well.

Yes I do. Now that I figured out a style I can do.

Lots of you have gorgeous curls! I am thrilled you have found what works to keep the curls looking great.

I am trying to love my waves, but it is really hard when I only get 3 good hair days a month.
Yes I do. Now that I figured out a style I can do.

I've already went, but I can go again.

I still love my hair.

Now does it get on my nerves? Yep.

Case in point. I stretch a curl. IT'S ALMOST APL!!!

Then I let it go. It's up to my neck.

Honestly, I don't really like my hair. It's really hard to manage and it actually has kinda lowered my self-esteem because I don't feel pretty with it at all. I really hope that there comes a day where I can truly love and appreciate my hair, but that isn't now. I'm working on accepting it, because I can't really change the way my hair is. I'm so glad that many people on here love their curls, because all of you look so beautiful However, since joining this site, I've felt a lot less alone and I thank everyone for that!
as a whole no not yet, its not as long as I want & has too much heat damage to see what my true curls look like.
I love the healthy sections though, it makes me smile to see a cute little strand that curls at the ends.

It's a love/hate relationship. Most days it's too droopy, frizzy or limp but those good hair days are GOLD and that's when I'm so in love with my curls. I think it radiates through because those are the days when I receive the most compliments on my hair.
When I was 18, I decided to get a fade before I went off to college. It was then that I realized that I had no recollection of what my hair was like before my mother made the executive decision to regularly relax my hair. Relaxers had been a part of my hair routine for as long as I could remember.

I remember having healthy hair when I was about five, and I remember the health of my hair progressively failing as the years passed me by. I remember the burns on my scalp, the burns that became scabs that matted my hair to my scalp. I also remember my mother chiding me, scolding me for not taking better care of my hair, blaming me for my hair loss that she was practically orchestrating by taking charge of my hair, as if I wanted my hair to fall out.

When it was time for me to go away to school, my mother immediately badgered me with questions about what I would do about my hair. When I told her that I wanted to try out a fade, she was fairly happy to hear it, but not for the reasons that I was happy. In her eyes, a fade was the best way for me to keep up a decent appearance; anything longer would have required maintenance that she didn't trust me with.

I got my fade and went off to school, and when I returned home for a break (last January), my mother urged me to get another trim, so I did, but when I came home for the summer, I'd decided that I wanted to grow my hair out, and this time around I wanted to go natural. My mother was not happy about this. She tried many times to coerce me into getting my hair cut, but I was persistent.

I can honestly say that my hair is more healthy than it has been at any point in my life, and I love it. I wish that my mother had encouraged me and helped me see that my natural hair is beautiful as I grew older, but instead she made me feel ugly and called my hair "nappy". I remember wearing hats all day long because I didn't want people to see my hair. After a huge inner battle, I realize that my hair is beautiful, and I don't want it within 100 feet of a relaxer, nor do I have the desire to straighten it.

I love and respect my mother, but I was born this way, and this way is more beautiful than any other way that I ever tried to be, any way that she tried to make me, and I pray that every man and woman will one day see this about himself/herself.

So, to answer your question simply, yes. I love, love, love my hair. The only thing that I do not love is the fact that it took me so long to do so.
I love my hair. There are some things that irritate me but my curls always forgive my hair sins and they always bounce back.
