“naturally curly hair is a curse, and don’t ever let anyone tell you different.” // m.a. shaffer
people, strangers – come up to me all the time to tell me how much they absolutely love my hair. i trust that they are not being disingenuous, i just don’t think they’ve fully thought the whole situation through. you see, i’m certain that they do love it, but that they definitely wouldn’t want it for themselves.
my curly hair is a giant pain in the ass.
i love it, but this does not mean that it’s not a lot of work. to wash it, i need to strategically think in advance, about the weather, the wind and humidity conditions, whether or not i want to wear a hat, and if i’ll need to, or want to wear it down in the next two days. i will also need to get up at an ungodly hour just so that i can give myself enough time to get it done, because it’s not the type of coiffure that lends well to little-to-no maintenance – it’s not me that is high maintenance, just the hair on my head.
but, i digress – as what i really wanted to say was that because of all of this – i get lazy with my hair. though i am a curly haired girl, sometimes i just don’t have the patience, nor have i had enough sleep for all that effort. so instead, i layer it with product, put it up, hope for the best and walk out the door.
