Are you enjoying the heat? I know it’s horrible outside, but most of all my hair knows it.
When the humidity strikes, so does the frizz. Every curly girl knows this. If you have to ask what this means, then obviously you are not a Curly Girl.
On Saturday, I planned to watch the Marching 100 at the Mt. Olive Homecoming parade, however they were rained out. So instead we went to Staunton with my brother and his family. We went to the new Mexican restaurant in town (good food) and then over to my brothers. As we were at dinner I noticed how long my nieces hair has got, but even better it’s so curly.
I looked at her and said “You’re a Curly Girl.” She looked at me and smiled. “Yep,” she said.
She’s 2 1/2 years old. It’s not often that a little girls hair will frizz like that, but hers looked so cute. However, I bet as she gets older she won’t feel the same.
Even though most women (and girls) have plenty of bad hair days, we Curly Girls go to the extreme. If we have the wrong haircut with our curl it can look like we stuck our finger in a light socket or better yet if it’s too short our curl will look like a poodle.
Our hair is one with the weather too. It’s a barometer for any ounce of moisture in the air. When it rains it frizzes. When it’s humid it frizzes. Long walks on the beach are also not the best thing for a Curly Girl, especially if she is trying to go straight. However, the one thing I’ve learned as a Curly Girl is that as I get older my hair has become more manageable or better yet I’ve learned how to manage it. I’ve learned to get it cut dry, wash it less than once a week (that’s when it’s curly) and put the right products in it.
I just want to say to all you Curly Girls even though it’s hot I know you can handle the heat. Tell me what you do to keep your coif looking so good.
