8 Things Girls With Curly Hair Want Everyone Else To Get Straight

Curly hair is a blessing and a curse.

Of course you could straighten it or get keratin to tame it, but why not let it go free?

If you’ve had curly hair your whole life like me, then you’ll certainly relate to these struggles of all curly haired people.

1. We Don’t Brush Our Hair

I’ve had people all my life ask “did you brush your hair today?” or “can I borrow your hairbrush?” and the answer is always no. If I tried to brush my hair it would frizz out to the size of a small elephant. No exaggeration. I only brush my hair in the shower with a comb!

2. Rain Is The Enemy

Really, any kind of humidity is the enemy. It turns fully formed ringlets into a frizzy mess not even worthy of daylight. If it starts to rain and you don't have a hood or umbrella, you've probably held the most random objects you could find over your hair just to keep it dry.

3. Drying Time Is Key

When you wash your hair, the way that you let it dry is crucial. Personally, I like to air dry or use a diffuser in a pinch, and I almost always get good results. Don’t get me wrong though, there have surely been times where I expect my hair to turn out a certain way and I get a completely different outcome. It’s like a surprise every time!

4. So Many Products

You own at least five different products just for curly hair. Gel, oil, mousse, masks, creams, you name it and you’ve tried it. Not to mention how expensive all of these products are.

5. So Much Hair

The amount of hair that comes out when you shower is enough to make a wig, probably. It’s actually concerning sometimes, and you have to check if you’re balding.

6. Straightening Is A Spectacle

If you put in the hours of effort it takes to straighten your hair, you know you’ll get some attention for it. People are shocked to see such a different look and on the inside you’re just mad at how long it took and how much your arm still hurts.

7. Please Don’t Touch

Having ringlets in your hair has to be some kind of invitation for everyone to touch and pull on them based on how much it happens. There is nothing worse than feeling someone else fingers running through your curls.

8. Conditioner Ratio

You might as well buy two bottles of conditioner and one bottle of shampoo at a time. It’s not your fault that your curls need moisture!

9. Nothing But Love

You wouldn’t trade your curls for anything. People pay good money to get their hair to look as curly as this! It can be a pain, but it’s always worth it when your curls look amazing.

They have their ups and downs, but curls still reign supreme in my book. They’re versatile, voluminous, and all around a great look.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
