Curly or straight?

Last week, I straightened my hair -- as I do a few times a year.

The number of compliments I got was overwhelming. Although it was not unwelcome.  Compliments are always nice.

People always ask me why I don't straighten my hair more often.  There are a few reasons ...

1)  It takes forever.  Once my hair is dry (which can take hours if I'm air drying), it takes me another 45 minutes with a straight iron to get it smoothed out.

2)  It's pointless in the summer.  The humidity would undo all of the above-mentioned work.

3)  I actually really like my curls.  Maybe other people think they're boring, but I like them.

Honestly, I'm glad I have such versatile hair -- I can wear it in either of the above-mentioned styles and it still looks good.  Options are always awesome.

Do you have something you like to change up once in awhile?


  1. I struggle with this too! I only straighten my hair a few times a year bc it's so much work!

  2. If you were always straightening it, you'd get compliments on the curls! I love both, I think you look gorgeous either way. Natural hair is so pretty.

  3. I think your curly hair is gorgeous and I'm glad you like your curls! But it does look nice straight too. You just have beautiful hair.

  4. I don't think I realize the length when your hair is curly, but it's so long and shiny and healthy! You look great!

  5. I love it both ways, but straight is so nice!! I definitely understand it taking forever though-while I don't have naturally curly hair, it's wavy and all through the summer I think I may have straightened my hair 3 times. Humidity sucks, lol.
