Blogorama Chapter 4: Return of the Curly Girl

It has been quite a while since I wrote THIS about saying goodbye to my days of having naturally curly hair.  Ever since I started having babies my hair has gotten more and more limp and less and less curly.  I tried to get it to keep curling but more often than not I found myself straightening it which I actually really liked but took so much time and seemed to be just killing the curls even more.  Years ago I came across a book called Curly Girl that gave some tips and methods for taking care of your curls. I tried it for a while but gave up after a few months.  I never did really go full throttle and buy the right products and stuff. I just thought it was hopeless.

Well.  I guess at that time I told my friend Erin about it and promptly forgot about it.  But in the fall I was hanging out with Erin a bit and she started thanking me for telling her all about it, that I had started a Curly Girl revolution in her neighborhood.  Even her hairdresser had gotten in on it and had been certified in the Curly Girl technique.  Sheesh - I had no idea it was such a big deal.  She gave me some samples of the products and made me re-read the book and guess what.  I am a curly girl once more.  I am so happy.  If you have curly hair at all, read the book and do what she says.

There.  There you have my testimony of curly girl.

Actually my sister and my sis-in-law Sheri have both hopped on the band wagon as well, so over the weekend while Sheri was up here we did a lot of talking about hair do's, much to the eye-rolling of our husbands.  Actually Troy's very supportive - I think he's very happy to have a wife who doesn't hate her hair anymore.

See! Luscious ringlets. I have weird kinky hair. And for the record, I see no double chin and love handles, puh-leaze....you haven't seen me naked!

I remember way back when you told me about curly girl too. It was in the foyer at church. Weird Random Memory. I did curly girl for over a year in an attempt to grow it out. Somedays I loved it some days I loathed it. All in all it was a failure. I felt like I had to "think" about my hair too much, and frankly I felt like me again when I cut it in a bob and my hair became a non issue. I love curls though and wish I could pull it off. Yours are beautiful! I did LOVE the products. Jessicurl and CurlJunkie were my favorites.

I'm so glad you have happy hair again. Being a mom is tough enough without a poor self image added in the mix. You totally need to feel good about yourself. Hurray for supportive husbands.
