12 Facts Of Life When You Have Curly Hair
Gabby Sheetz

From using gallons of Suave detangler as a child to using gallons of hairspray today, my curly hair has always taken up a fair amount of my attention daily. My hair is a pain to deal with, and the amount of money I spend on hair products is outrageous. However, I wouldn't trade my curly hair for the world nowadays. Mostly because I have figured out that a little water on it in the morning has it all set to go, and I'm lazy.

But, nonetheless, here are some facts of life when your hair isn't straight or wavy but CURLY. We all know they're true.

1. You might not even own a brush because when you brush your hair it looks like it grew two feet (ESPECIALLY if it was dry)

2. Your hair looks different each day because for some reason it curls different. Each. Day. Except for that one annoying strand of hair that ALWAYS curls straight out from the side of your head. That one looks the same. 

3. People always wanna TOUCH it.

4. You do NOT want them to TOUCH it. 

5. You probably have a specific hair routine, and if you steer away from it you're done. Just bank on wearing a ponytail the next day because that is the only way you're gonna get yourself to leave the house with that frizz-ball on your head. 

6. You spend way too much money on hair mousse, hairspray, gel, etc., and it is not fair. 

7. When one of your favorite hair products is discontinued, you feel like you need to have a funeral for it. THEN, rush to every beauty supply store and find something to replace it before it comes time to do your routine again. 

8. Rain either makes your hair curl more and look fantastic OR makes your hair look INSANE and HUGE. There is no in-between.

9. You either look great in all hats or have a hard time wearing them because of how much hair you have. Again, no in-between. 

10. Braiding your hair results in thousands of tangles and you probably just end up throwing up into a bun or ponytail any way. 

11. You love your curly hair when it looks good, but hate it when it looks bad.

12. Yes, your hair is a pain, but you will always have people running up to you, saying, "I wish I had curly hair!" And THAT will always feel nice :)

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
