Need Your Advice...

OK...let me start this out with a bit of an explanation.  I am not one who wants to spend a lot of time doing my hair.  I have naturally curly hair, and unlike the little girl in the Charlie Brown episodes, I do not appreciate it as much as her!  I started letting it grow out about two years ago, because I was convicted that this is what I was to do.  I had kept it short and layered for several years, mainly because it was just easier.  That and when it is hot and humid, I wouldn't look like I just stuck my finger into a light socket!

Anyways....recently my cousin who also has the same (wonderful) hair as I do got a perm.  If you are like me, you are saying WHAT??  She had a perm, but instead of curling it, the hairdresser just kept combing, and combing, and combing.  When she was finished, my cousin's hair was no longer curly, just slightly wavy, but sooo much more manageable.  And it looked great also.

I have been considering this for myself.  While I was quite stylish when big hair was in, now...not so much!  Again, I don't want to spend a lot of time doing my hair, and I thought my options were quite limited with this curly hair.  I am also not out to look flashy or anything, I just would like manageable hair that I like. 

I recently borrowed a hair straightener and straightened my hair for a few days.  I loved the result!  But I got mixed reviews from the family.  I was really interested in my husbands opinion about it.  His reaction was that I could do whatever I wanted to.  He says he likes it either way.  UGH!  Not what I was looking for.  I wanted a love it/hate it response!  My husband the peacemaker!

So... I am looking for your advice.  Here is the before picture

and the after picture.....

What do you think??

Have a great day!



  1. I like your hair. I have the same hair as you! I've grown it out for about four years now and I usually keep it up in a messy looking bun, or a curly pony. I also do a couple of French braids. I like to keep it pulled back from my face and have considered cutting it, but I don't think I should. Curly hair can give your face a softness if put up the right way. Google some hair styles, maybe you'll find something easy that you like. Staightening it can harm your hair, so be careful.

  2. Thanks! I appreciate the advice. I didn't think about the harm that the chemicals could do. Need to consider this prayerfully some more! Thanks again!
