9 Things You Know If Your Hair Style Is Called "I Tried My Best"

Ah, the woes of having curly hair.

9 Things You Know If Your Hair Style Is Called "I Tried My Best"

Having curly hair is a blessing and a curse. Every day is a gamble because there is really no way to tell how our hair is going to be. I'm personally at the point where I've decided my hair is its own person with its own agenda. Sometimes we question if the hassle is worth it, and other times we wouldn't have it any other way. Regardless of how you feel about your curls, here are nine things you know to be true if you have curly hair.

1. People always ask you what you do to make it so curly.

Just Add Water

My go-to answer is always, "I wash it and hope for the best."

2. People also always ask you if they can touch your hair.

Don't Touch

I actually don't mind, as long as you don't mess it up.

3. You spend an unnecessary amount of money on necessary products.

My bank account cries when it's time to replace products. Usually, because I decide to replace all of them at the same time.

4. The "dime-size" or "quarter-size" rule for the amount of product does not apply to you.

Double Conditioner

When it comes to conditioner, us curly-haired folk need all we can get. This is why we run out of conditioner way before we run out of shampoo.

5. Blow dryers, humidity, and brushes are no friends of yours.

No thank you, I don't want to look like more of a poodle than what I already do.

6. Every day is a battle.

Curly Gamble

You never truly know what you're working with until you're finished. This plays into "hope for the best" motto I mentioned earlier.

7. Falling asleep with wet hair is not an option.

This is really unfortunate considering it takes your hair 2-3 business days to fully dry.

8. You don't have sympathy when people with naturally straight hair complain about their hair.

Let's trade hair for a couple days, I bet you won't complain about your straight hair ever again.

9. That once in a blue moon good hair day is the only thing that keeps you from going bald or getting your hair chemically straightened.

These are the days that remind us that the hassle is worth it.

One of the best things about summers in college is getting to go home. Yes, we work ungodly hours but at least we get to come back to our own bed and mom's cooking. I sat in my dorm back in May counting down the finals that I had left until I was able to go back to where I grew up. It's hard to think though that I'll never have the chance to count that down again.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

You, our parents, gave us the tools to become the entitled, lazy people the millennial generation is filled with.

Do Millennials Suck Because Of Their Parents?

Baby boomers and older generations are constantly referring to millennials as entitled. Constantly claiming that we have been babied and handed everything; we lack morals and work ethic. We are unable to hold conversations because we don't know how to pull ourselves away from a screen, and we are self-absorbed. In reality, some of this may be true. But you made us this way.

My (Mis)adventures In Online Dating

A/S/L? Cupid get lost!


Tinder, JDate, Plenty of Fish, OKCupid, Chemistry.com, Match, Zoosk — just a few of the names of big companies that promise to get you a date/potential partner. I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I haven’t tried all of these options, because I have. I haven’t been on a date in over a year and I haven’t actually dated anyone in almost two and a half years. Now, I won’t lie, I’m not the prettiest color in the box, but aside from that, I do have plenty to offer. I have a brain that I use on the daily, I’m pretty freaking smart and I’ve been told that I’m funny in the form of my total sarcasm. But alas, this isn’t a personals ad hoping that someone out there will see this and start sending me emails (but hey, if that happens, that’s OK too).
