Having hair like mine is a complete nightmare. Sure it looks very smooth and straight but it's hard work. One major problem, my hair is naturally curly and I just hate it.
In all of my photos my hair is nice and straight. For me natural doesn't suit me.
I'm sick of reading everywhere things like 'every woman wants and dreams of curly hair.' No they do not. And it really annoys me when people tell me my curls look 'lovely' and 'you should wear your hair natural.' I don't care if they say they like it, I hate it and thats what matters. No amount of compliments about 'how lovely curls look' is going to make me want them.
So you're probably wondering how on earth my hair is so straight. It's simple. I invest in a weekly blowdry.
I never wash and dry my hair by myself for a very good reason. My hair is so thick it takes ages to dry, at least 45 minutes. And what is worse is the curl. Having my hair done by a professional each week ensures my hair looks very smooth and poker straight. I cannot do it myself as I cannot get it straight as a hairdresser can. The moment I pick up a hairdryer my hair puffs out. No amount of product will stop it going like it does.
I really want my hair chemically straightened. I would love nothing more than to permanently get rid of the curl. I keep reading contradicting stories about chemical straightening. That as my hair is bleached no one will do it. Then I hear that some hairdressers will do it on my hair depending on the brand of product.
So why do I hate my curls. I just hate the way they look on me. It actually makes my face look fat and curls don't suit me. I much prefer my hair looking straight. I just don't get the fascination with curly hair, even my hairdresser hates it. She said it looks old fashioned.
So unless I can find a permanent solution to getting rid of my curls, looks like I will be sticking with my weekly blowdry.
