Hair Talk : Why Curly Hair Is Worth Of Gold

November 27, 2014

Grab a hot cup of tea. We’re talking about hair today.

Hair. Cheveux. Pelo. Capelli. Haar. The one thing I dread the most . Why? Well, if curly hair was a human, it would be very moody. I don’t have bad hair days nor bad hair weeks, I have a bad hair life. In other words, curly hair needs a lot of maintenance.

And when humidity and bad water tag along, it’s game over for you. And when your hair finally decides to look presentable, you end up seeing no one but you wake up the next day looking like The Lion King. And when you feel like having a drastic change in your life by going for the chop, you end up looking like poodle. And when you think your hair looks great during a night out, you notice in the pictures that a curl, just one, was completely perpendicular to your head all night long. Can anyone relate? Where ma’ curly girls at?
So curly hair is basically hell on head.
But then again, you receive a lot of compliments on your volume and on the “spice” added to your personality simply because you have natural curly hair. A lot of people asked me if we could trade hair. Obviously, they don’t know about the “side dishes” that come with curly. Nevertheless, this has always encouraged me to not go for any keratin treatments or whatever they call them.
I get bored easily. It’s in my nature. And playing around with my hair couldn’t be considered as much fun. It’s actually quite a task. Truth is, I don’t know how to blow-dry my hair on my own and straightening it doesn’t give the best finished look. Hence, visiting the hairdresser is a necessary. But do you honestly think that I’m going to go to the hairdresser’s, sit for 3 hours on a chair, get my ears burnt just to make sure that all the curls around them are straight and smooth, watch and listen to my hair frizzing up right after stepping out of the shop and pay for it all? I don’t think so. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting my hair done. There’s nothing better than getting pampered. However, a usual blow-dry should last a minimum of 2 days, not 5 hours.
Solution? Go back to level one: curly hair and its high maintenance. When you think of it, everything needs maintenance: nails, makeup (throughout the day), skin, errthang. First, you have to find the right shampoo and conditioner. If you have any recommendations, I would really appreciate it if you left a comment below! Second, lose the hair brush. You don’t need it, unless your hair is still wet. And third, leave-in-conditioner. I use to not believe in the “leave-in” crap, but believe me it works (creams and oils). I’ve been currently using and loving L’Oreal Spiral Splendour. It makes the curls look smooth, bouncy soft and shiny (good shiny, don’t worry!).
There’s no doubt that curly hair isn’t the most convenient. But the beauty of it is waking up everyday to a new look (even though not all of them look great). I suppose that’s where the “spice”comes from. I have to be honest, not having the same hair as everyone else’s makes you feel quite special sometimes. So to all the curly heads out there, don’t be ashamed and embrace them curls!

Have you ever wanted to completely change the look of your hair?
