Researching naturally curly hair gets lots of interesting conflicting information so I decided to ignore all that and just tell you my story. My hair was wavy when I was a teen when long straight hair was all the rage. When I was in a class on style, the students were asked to draw a self portrait. I drew myself with straight hair, and the teacher almost laughed out loud. My sister and I would iron (that’s right – bend over ironing board with hair spread out the other one holding a hot iron and taking the curls to a straight flat mess) each other’s hair before school every morning. Thank goodness those days are over! We are free to wear our hair any way we want. Several years ago I threw away my flat iron and let my hair do its own thing. The good news is I don’t spend as much time getting ready to leave the house; the flip side is there are no two days the same with naturally curly hair. At least I have not found it!
In an effort to encourage others to enjoy her naturally curly hair, I’m running a Celebrate Curly campaign and love the line I heard recently (cannot remember where or I would give credit!) – Curly Hair is the Cool Girl’s Calling Card. How many times have you heard a comment that is so complimentary to curly hair? Most of the ads we see on TV and in magazines are telling us how we can straighten our hair!
