I have naturally curly hair. When I tell people this, they always say, "you're so lucky! I wish I had curly hair." They have no idea. I'm about to share with you, THE CURSE OF CURLY HAIR. It's a real thing. The following self-portraits prove it.
This is a ONE WEEK HAIR EXPERIMENT. I want you all to know what my annoying hair does so you can appreciate your own locks.
Before I get into the really bad pictures, I want to explain why I straighten my hair so often. People with straight hair don't understand that curly hair is high maintenance. With curly hair, I have to wash, dry, and style it every day. With straight hair, I can wash, dry, and straighten it once and leave it for 3 or 4 days. That really comes in handy when I have to get 3 kids ready and out the door to school every day. So, one night last week, I straightened my hair and went to bed. When I woke up, I looked like this:
This is the post-ponytail hair. Not cute.
Here's a picture of me after I take out my hair for bed. (Don't you wish you were my sweet husband who comes to bed every night and gets to laugh at the craziness that is my hair?)
I have to warn you, DAY 7 is my favorite. This was taken this morning. Even better, I actually had to answer the door like this. I swear to you, I actually answered the door looking exactly like this:
That's it. That was my ONE WEEK HAIR EXPERIMENT. People say they are cursed with straight hair, well, curly hair is a curse too. In all honesty, I'm glad I have hair to complain about. Being bald would be a serious bummer. I can't believe that I am putting these pictures on here, but people deserve to know the truth! If you have straight, lifeless hair and you wish it was curly, THINK AGAIN! Sometimes less is more.
