My hair went curly towards the end of 7th grade. The texture has changed with haircuts, color jobs, and the different cities I've lived in, but it's never gone back to its pre-pubescent state. My current hair color has somewhat damaged my ends (and I'm fine with that), which makes them straighter than the rest of my hair. Funnilly enough, this is kind of what my hair looked like at the end of 7th grade when it started growing out curly.
Although I've had my ups and downs with my own hair - scrunching it in my wannabe-chola phase, straightening it daily in high school, and letting it be wild in college... I am so happy now that I've completely embraced my natural crazy texture. My curls are not completely symmetrical. In fact, most curls aren't alike. That's the beauty of curly hair. Each curl has a mind of its own, it's like they each have little personalities. A word to my curly girls: don't fight them, let them be.
Experimenting with products and washing routines are the two things that probably helped me embrace my natural texture the most. Frizz was my biggest problem which is why I resorted to scrunching, flat ironing and other techniques. Here are my favorite anti-frizz products for all thick hair strands and fine hair strands. These work great on hair that ranges from the barely there wave to kinkiest of curls. It all depends on the thickness of your individual strands of hair.
Are your curls completely symmetrical or do they seem to have a mind of their own too? Have you come to terms with your natural hair texture? Do you hate frizz too?
