6 Things You Know If Your Hair Curls Like Mine

It's an issue. It's a fashion statement.

6 Things You Know If Your Hair Curls Like Mine
Dawn Pearson

All hair is different. All people have different opinions of hair. For example, I consider mine to be strawberry blonde, not red, even though you, who did not grow up with it and it is not attached to you, prefer to call it ginger. Regardless of color, curly/wavy haired kids face all the same struggles. How often should I was my hair? What product could I use to make it stop frizzing? Why can't it be straight? Once you've given up on that middle school phase of constantly flattening and frying your hair, you can sit back with me and just bemoan about the lot life has given you when it comes to the hair department. We can enjoy and complain about the struggles we face together. Here are a few of my favorite.

1. Whether you wear it long or short, something will pull on it

Whether it's a baby, a dog, or a cat, your hair is not just hair. It is a toy. They will mercilessly tug and pull on your hair until it's nothing but split ends. They'll drive you insane until you finally give up and either let them have their way with it or you chop it all off.

2. It does what it wants

Yes, my hair is curly, but pieces want to be straight. Other times, some pieces want to defy gravity. There's no real way to control it, so just roll with the punches, throw on some oil that claims to be a "frizz dismiss genius" and hope for the best. I'll never turn out how you hope though.

3. Humidity is NOT our friend

Sometimes our curls are perfect ringlets, no assistance needed. Other times, Mother Nature steps in and lends a hand with her humidity. Your curls spiral out of control, your hair gets so big its called a "lion's mane," and each strand of hair is fighting so valiantly to be it's own curl that they get their way and now hair is just poof.

4. It will always be in your food

Whether it is long or short, it finds a way. A way into your ketchup, your ice cream, your drink, your date's food. It's impossible to prevent so just try to go with the flow as best as you can. And hope your date isn't a germaphobe.

5. NEVER wash it daily 

Your hair will hate you. It forgets how to be curly, the undersides of it will be straight, and overall it's not a good time. And it gets even bigger, since apparently that's possible. Bonus: It's a huge time save to not.

6. You never have to curl your hair 

Never. I mean like ever. Because it only looks unnatural and too tame if you do. But don't ever think about straightening it. Your friends might all go into shock and no one likes how different you look (not even you). The bright side is that you're always ready for a night out. Throw on that red lip and boom, suddenly you've saved 30 minutes and get to be at bars longer than all the other girls who have to put in the time and patience to strive for your curl. It's not all bad.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

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.
