Questions Every Curly-haired Girl Faces...
- Is that your natural hair?
- Did you perm your hair?
- Can I touch your hair?
- Why don't you comb your hair?
- Why don't you straighten your hair?
There is something so fascinating about curls. They look rebellious and cute at the same time. Curly hair is a show stealer, no doubt about it. It intrigues and surprises, it charms and enthralls, most importantly it bounces! It just makes you happy!
But all's not as hunky dory as it seems, a curly girl always has too much on her plate, or should we say head! Curls have a personality of their own, and various moods as well. You can actually never predict what they are up to, we can vouch for that!
So depending on the curl forecast for the day, and numerous external factors, the life of a curly girl is in short like this.
Combs are our enemies!
Yes, curly hair and combs don't go together. Combing curls is like unfurling a giant frizz monster. Plus, your comb is bound to get stuck up in all that hair mass, and lead to breakage. So we just prefer to dose our curls with a conditioner, scrunch them, and let them live!
Those bad hair days...
Yes, on really bad days you might end up looking like your pet. Well, sometimes you just simply cannot do anything, so just take it as a compliment and let it go! And, your pet will feel a better connection with you as well!
When they decide to misbehave!
Curls can be very stubborn on some days, they will not listen to you at all. No point asking them to calm down, braids and buns will rescue you on such days.
Pins literally vanish!
Put as many pins as you want, they are never going to be enough! Never! Half of them will disappear in your head itself, so good luck finding them!
Haircuts are useless!
Coco Chanel said, a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life, but that rarely happens with curly-haired girls. Whatever haircut who get, people only notice that your hair is shorter. The only haircut available for curly hair is lots of layers, and it is so hard to find a stylist who will actually make a difference to your hair.
Every curly-haired girl has sleep issues, especially if your hair is long. Curls weigh too much, they keep on coming on your face to disrupt sleep, and tying them is also not very comfortable. So depending on how you sleep, which side you sleep, and all such things, you will wake up with some kind of creature on your head the next morning.
We do share a love hate relationship with our curls. When they are good, they are really good, and when bad, don't even ask! The more you fight against your natural texture, the more your hair will get out of hand. So, remember, swishy swirls, tangled twirls, silly girls, embrace your curls!
