Curly Girl Problems: An Introduction

Curly Girl Problems: An Introduction

posted on: 11.12.2011

This post is a long time in the making, and I'm not quite sure why I've been putting it off for so long. Actually, I do: I'm honestly no expert when it comes to hair. I do consider myself an amateur expert when it comes to curly hair though. But not all curly hair is created equal. I see girls who claim they have curly hair, when the reality of the matter is that they have wavy hair. So to kick things off, this is what curly hair (in my opinion is):


Beyonce back in the day seriously rocked her curls. This girl on the right also has beautiful natural curls. This is what comes to mind when I think curly! Also, please refer to literally any picture of myself, because my hair is crazy curly.




The following are examples of wavy hair (in my opinion):
Sorry, but you cannot convince me that these girls have curly hair. They have beautiful wavy hair, but curly? Nah.

My kind of curly hair is probably the most obnoxious kind. When left to dry naturally, my hair gets insanely frizzy, and as it begins to dry, the curls start creating knots. That all in itself isn't too bad, but I have a lot of thick hair. I have enough hair for like, ten people. Basically, I look like a hot mess. And forget trying to put a brush through my hair. Ha! There is a small window of opportunity when it comes to styling my hair, which occurs only when I hop right out of the shower. It is such a huge ordeal when doing my hair. To get my hair looking in the best shape possible, I have to style it wet. Which is why I do not own a blow dryer. The diffuser that comes with the blow dryer? Totally doesn't work on my hair. I think it just makes my hair frizzier. I have literally tried it all!

This is my hair when it is fully dry with a ton of product in it. Yes, it really is that big. No, this has not been doctored. Minus my face. It was looking pretty jacked up in this picture, so I figured a kitten's face was ten times more adorable than my face in this picture. Enjoy.
There are so many different kinds of curly hair. My cousin has the same curls I do, minus the frizz. So she doesn't need nearly as many products as I use. Then there are the curly girls with ethnic hair, and have kinkier curls. I really have no idea how to tame those curls, so these articles will be mainly for girls with my kind of curls. Those girls who don't have thick hair like me also do not need as much product as I do. 

So what exactly am I getting to here? This post is merely to serve as an introduction to this "Curly Girl Problems" series that I'm going to start, and usually I will have an accompanying video to go along with the post that I will be posting on Youtube. I hope this is actually informative for those of you with curly hair! Embrace your curls! I would say banish your flat iron, but I'm not going to lie: in the winter, I like straightening my hair because it's a whole lot easier. So you don't have to banish your flat iron. Just don't use it as often.

Next week I'll post the next Curly Girl Problems article. Have a great day! xo

  2. I have CRAZY curls!!! My hair is kinda like yours, really thick but A LOT more curlier! I gave up brushing dry hair so I have showers in the morning, towel dry it and brush it to get rid of any knots then I usually leave it to curl (instantly!!!). Wet your hair before you brush it and towel dry it :)

  3. I have crazy curls as well. Not as thick as yours but curler- I can not comb or brush it dry. Ever. I go through about a bottle of conditioner a week. Then rinse with cold water, squeeze out water, put in leave in conditioner and plop for twenty minutes, take it down and let it air dry. Then use tons of mousse and flipping my hair around until I like it. It's so difficult but whatever :) I get tons of compliments on it and think it's my best quality. Lol. Power to the curls :)
