13 Truths For When You Have Crazy Curly Hair
First of all; you look great. Really. But if you've been blessed with some unruly ringlets, then you know these things to be true.
1. You Know Not To Brush It
You never, NEVER, under any circumstances try to brush curly hair when it's dry. You'll either break your hair or break the brush!
2. It Has A Mind Of It's Own
More often than not, your hair will decide to to things without consulting you. It's not your fault and, over the years, you've grown to accept it. Mostly because you don't want to anger the beast that lives on your head.
3. You Wake Up Looking Like A Muppet
Admit it, there have been mornings where you've checked to see if your window was open because it looks like a wild rat made a nest in your hair while you slept.
4. It's Exhausting To Maintain
Gallons of conditioner and buckets of coconut oil can't tame this wild animal. You've no doubt tried every magical hair concoction you can find before settling on a combination that works for you.
5. Straightening Is A Pain
Sure, if you've got an hour to kill you might decide to try literally sandwiching your hair between two searing hot pieces of metal just to look like one of the average, straight haired people for a change.
6. When People Want Your Styling Secrets
How many times have you been bombarded with questions like "How do you get so much volume?" "Where did you get your perm?" "What do you put in your hair that makes it so curly?" Well here's the inside information folks; we get it wet.
7. Getting Ready Takes Time
If you want your hair to look like you put even the smallest bit of effort into it, you better set aside a good forty-five minutes for washing, conditioning, detangling, gel, blow dry, hairspray and some heartfelt prayers to the hair gods.
8. Your Shower Wall Looks Like Modern Art
Hair falls out in the shower. It's natural. And no one is judging you for casually sticking a few stray strands across the tiles.
9. Good Hair Days Are Great Hair Days
Sometimes you hate it. But then there are those days where you just can't help but be feeling yourself!
10. You Love To Rock Out
Your curls were made for head-banging. So when the tunes are blasting make sure you've got a two foot perimeter because the hair will be going hard!
11. You Feed Off It's Power
Big Hair = Big Confidence. And don't you ever forget it!
12. People Are Always Jealous
Remember to never pity the flat and lifeless-haired peasants who lust after your voluminous curls. It's not their fault they weren't blessed with these luscious locks.
13. You Would Never Wish To Be Flat
Your hair is your friend. It's there for you. It supports you. It lifts you up (and sometimes adds a precious inch to your height)
Your Crazy Curly Hair Makes You, You
Sure it's a mess, it's annoying, it takes time to maintain. But when all is said and done, your curls are a gift. No, they are a TREASURE and nothing beats that fresh bounce when you know you look amazing! So let the curls fly free!
