12 Curly Hair Problems As Told By Princess Merida

Your hair, much like you, will not be tamed.

12 Curly Hair Problems As Told By Princess Merida

I used to hate my naturally curly hair when I was little. I thought it was weird, frizzy, and the other kids would try to pull it to make the curls bounce. So for ten years, I straightened my hair every single day. Fast forward to my freshman year of high school when I chopped my hair off and it suddenly started curling again and I decided just to leave it. I realize now, that curly hair is different and weird, but it's beautiful. No one says that more than Princess Merida, my own personal curly hair style icon.

1. "OMG, is that your natural hair?"

No, I actually have the time and energy to sit there for hours and curl my hair to make it look like this. Of course, it's my natural hair.

2. When Random People Try To Pet Your Curls

No, no. The hair is for looking, not for touching. The minute you start to touch it is the minute it starts to frizz, and it's a downward slope from there.

3. The Humidity Causes Your Hair To Be Bigger Than Your Head

It's a fact of life. Your curls have a mind of their own and will continue to grow until you get out of said humid area. Sometimes you just give up and let them grow.

4. "How Do You Do Your Hair?"

I literally just wet it. Wet it, wash it, use a gallon of conditioner and all is well.

5. When You Run Out Of Conditioner... Again.

You have to keep the curls happy and shiny, so feeding them a gallon of conditioner is the only way. If only your bank wanted your curls to be that happy.

6. Hair In Your Face? Good Luck Dealing With Bobby Pins.

Nothing can hold your curls back. There is no taming them, just letting them be is all you can do.

7. Once You Pick A Style For The Day There's No Going Back

Messy bun? You're done for the day, try tomorrow. Ponytail? Take it down and get ready for the frizz. Braids? Good luck getting those knots out.

8. When Someone Starts Coming At You With A Brush

You know a storm of frizz is just waiting to happen once that brush touches your hair. May the odds be ever in your favor.

9. Knots. Knots Everywhere.

You know that game, "The Impossible Knot"? Well, if that game were a thing on a body, it would be your hair. Good luck getting those out without any pain, tears, and a lot of time on your hands.

10. "You Should Straighten Your Hair More Often."

Yeah like I have the time and energy for that two-hour experience.

11. When Someone With Straight Or Wavy Hair Complains About Their Hair.

Girl, you're preaching to the wrong choir. Try dealing with this mane for a weak.

12. But Never Forget How Beautiful Your Curls Are.

Your curls are different, your curls are beautiful, your curls are part of what makes you, you. You are a princess, crowned in your curls, and you better not ever forget it.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
