Another Curly Girl

It’s funny how I’ve lived my whole life with an unruly mop of curly hair and just accepted it, usually loved it, occasionally hated it—and now suddenly I’m seeing curly hair stuff everywhere. It started when I tried out a new salon (which I love, by the way—Salon Breathe, for anyone close to Jackson), and my new hairdresser raved about a product line called Deva Curls which (obviously) caters to people with curly hair. After I got home, I read up on the product and learned all sorts of crazy techniques for taming my hair into natural, obedient curls.

And then just a few days ago, a friend sent me some pictures from a fanciful fun calendar—and guess what the design company is called? Curly Girls Design. I checked out their website and found lots of products I WANT, ranging from cards to magnets to T-shirts. And even though I make my own cards now and can’t bring myself to BUY one, they are super cute. Maybe the calendar will satisfy my need for curly girl cute-ness.

So watch out, all you with the so-called normal follicles: curly girls are on the rise and we will soon take over the world. Once we get our curls under control.

I often wish my hair would curl the rest of the way...right now, it's at this crazy curly/wavy state that is, as you so aptly put it, unruly.

Got any hints on how to change my genes in order to achieve that?

Is there a group for thin haired girls with flat life-less hair? :)

What. Ever.
Curly hair is the shiz. Always has been. You aren't on the rise, you've (or your hair has, I should say) always been on top. Ha! That was punny!
You always want what you don't got.
Though I am just nuts about my hair now, there was never a day that I didn't wish I had your hair!!

Thanks, Jen. Mostly, I like my hair, but summer's humidity always provides days where I reconsider.
