What curly haired women doesn’t know this moment: You’re looking into the mirror after washing and drying your curls and then you see it – the part of your hair that just doesn’t want to curl properly, that frizzy spot or that flat top… You have three options to cope with it:
- You try to fix it with complicated methods and techniques – if this doesn’t work out you’ll probably end up with option 2
- You’re annoyed by your curls and just pull them back, so nobody can see your curls’ weak spot
- You decide it’s ok if your curls don’t always look perfect and feel good about them anyway
You’ll find many articles to help you try new methods to “fix” your curls and you’ll also see a lot of hairstyles idea not only on this blog, but all over the internet. But when it comes to accepting your curls the way they are it’s all up to you!
Accept your weak spots
This is exactly the reason why I’ve decided to start my “curly hair blog” and why I’m really excited to write articles for NaturallyCurly.com! I don’t only want to write about tips and tricks on how to handle curly hair or what products are great, but I want to spread some curly love.
I think it’s important that the next time you see that weak spot when looking into the mirror you don’t just hide it with a nice hairstyle, but that you look at it and just accept it is there. We usually are our own worst critic and interestingly I tend to get most compliments on my curls on days, when I see lots of weak spots. So, don’t focus on the parts you don’t like about your curls, but think about what you love about your curls!
Why you should love your curls
I’m sure you can think of some reasons why you love your curls. Maybe you love them, because they make you unique or because there’s no need to wash them on a daily basis. There are various reasons why to love your curly hair, no matter how little or unimportant these reasons might seem. For me the strongest reason to love my curls is because they make me unique, kind of like my USP (for those of you who are into marketing). But seriously, isn’t it nice to be described as the one with the curly hair? I love it, because nobody will ever describe me as the short one, the one with the glasses or the one with the big nose. I’ll just be the curly one and I like it!
Spread the curly love
Feel good about your curls and help others feel good about their curly hair as well. So instead of only thinking how someone else’s curls look nice, healthy or shiny, compliment her and spread the curly love! Everyone sees these weak spots when looking into the mirror, also the girl who’s curls you envy. So the next time you see someone with beautiful curls, just approach her and compliment her on her beautiful curls and don’t envy them (well, maybe a little) and make her day!
