From NaturallyCurly.com: “We asked our CurlTalkers for their biggest concerns about your curls and kinks, and they told us. The answers covered a wide range of topics, from self-image issues to finding a good stylist. Here are the ones that rose to the top of the list“
2. Finding a stylist who understands how to work with curls.
“Finding a stylist who knows how to deal with curly hair without making their curly client look like a mushoom when done. (nightmare process! I just went 6 years without a professional cut!),” said CurlyCassieRo.
“With the same routine every single day for 30 days, I can have 20 different heads of hair in a month, and maybe only half of them are good, if I’m lucky,” says PrettyPorcupine. “I know you’re just supposed to ‘embrace’ its “unique” personality and be all “free and easy,” but let’s face it. That is just not realistic when you have to look decent for work every day, want to be sure you look good on a date or for a special event, or because you just are so fricking tired of not knowing how the hell your hair is going to look at any given time.”
5. Acceptance of curls in society and in the workplace..
“Every time I pick up a magazine or see a segment on a TV show about “how to manage your curls,” the answer is always to straighten them! It’s insulting,”says Tinah. “The mainstream media pushes straight hair as the only acceptable option. Just once I’d like to read an article on how to manage curly hair that actually tells me how to manage curly hair, not how to make curly hair straight. I’m pretty sure we ALL know how to make it straight! We’ve spent years doing it!”
I’m a crazy curls kinda girl y’all and I love it. When I was little I would have it because it was such trouble for other people to brush my hair. I would wear braids a lot. Also – since I was little, whoever did my hair never put products in it, just brush it into a poof and voila – yaya. Not cool.
Once I got the hang of it, it became my trademark. I have only straightened my hair three times in my entire life.
What are your hair concerns? (no matter curly or not!)
