do you like your hair?

I've seen people with natural straight hairs and had them curled; I've seen people with natural curls and had them straightened/rebonded. I have a natural curly hair and I was not comfortable with it when I was younger. I had it straightened when I was in high school but the treatment didn't last long. I guess being "stuck" with my curls after that incident was a blessing in disguise. I learned how to take care of it and how to fix it. I now believe I look better with my natural curls than with straight hair. Do you like your hair? Did you have it treated in any way (straightened, curled, rebonded, relaxed, colored/dyed, etc.)?

Natural spiky hair? I've never met anyone who has one. Maybe you're mistaking people who applied hair wax on their short hair as having "natural spikes"? If you're interested in getting that same look, a good product to help you is L'Oreal's Out of Bed hair wax. It's relatively cheap for something you can use for a long time. It's also pretty easy to use. Just air dry your hair after shower, then apply it! That's it!

Personally I like my hair.......it's long and soft.....But it depends on people's taste also.....mayB they think that this hairstyle is in fashion that's why they have to try this and that....however there's no harm in try.....I think the hairdresser will also get customers otherwise they will lose their jobs.....

I like my hair as its nautrally straight though there are times that I want to make my hair permed. My friends who has permed hair said that once your hair become curly, its hard to bring it back to its natural texture and I might regret it. So I just keep up my hair the natural way and never tried to curl it ever since.

I hate it, but have also given up on it. Like you, I think I look better with my natural curls, more because they're more "me" than any other hairstyle. They suit my personally better. I don't like the fact that they're dry and coarse and practically mutant, but what can I do? I guess I'm all those things too, lol.

I am perfectly okay with my hair right now. I don't like to leave it long any more, and I WOULD like to cut it short. I tried to leave it long, but it wasn't that comfortable for me. Now, I cut it short again, and I felt much more comfortable right now. I like my hair now.

For me variety is the spice of life. I think I've had about every kind of hair thing (except hair colors like blue, green, orange, red) over my 55 years of being on this planet. I have straight hair and my mother always had to line me and my sisters up for perms when we were little. When we got the perms when we were older, we would sit behind our clothes dryer back vent and hold our hair straight with a brush to get rid of the curl. Now I love my straight hair and it is longer than It's ever been because I kept up with hair trims over the years and it has just grown by leaps and bounds. When I was first married, I visited the beauty salon and asked the girl to give me a hair style that would be good for a newly married, very busy, working girl. She promptly cut all my hair very very short. I could just barely get a curl out of the top front strand of my hair. When I came home and my husband saw all my long locks gone, he gave me a big hug and then said I love you but I will love your hair even more when it grows back. I must admit I even enjoyed the short hair for a while. So I have had curly hair, straight hair, medium cut, short cut, and long hair. I do have some gray hair but there is a lovely light golden brown color that hides that. I have had black hair, white blond hair, auburn hair, and brown hair (my natural color). It has all been fun and I love my hair.

I like my hair as it is either combed or messy it's ok. I keep it as a regular pinoy hair cut. The color of my hair I like to keep pure black. If so then I would dye my hair darker black since that is one of my favorite colors. If to mix lines or colors I'd have to go with navy dark blue.

hi.. i have wavy hair, i did rebond 2 years back. it lasted for alost a year. im a person who keeps changing my hair do every 6 months depending on the growth. when i did rebonding i had thick, long and soft.. my hair was managable. later i did a layer cut for a while. so it was wavy from top to mid and then in the end it was straight. at present i have a different cut..keeping it short for the summer. i wanted to do rebonding again.. but the stylist who cut my hair told me that i have naturally beautiful curls so told me to leave it as such. however straightening and reboding is not in fashion now. so i m happy with my hair now. recently i have heavy hairfall... i know its because of stress and food habits. do you have any suggesstions for hair growth? i lost the density.. i feel sad about it

I have long and dark hair but I don't like it very much because my hair is not very soft and makes it always like a puff ball... I tried many methods to soften it like oil treatment and what not but it is still... The other thing is I dyed it before made it even worse.

WEll, I must admit that I am not a big fan of my hair. I have very thick hair..very very thick. Ofcourse everyone else loves it and they say I have great hair - me however, I can't stand it. It's so thick that I can't leave it down. If I want to leave it down, it takes me 2-3 hours just to straighten it with a flat iron... My hair is naturally black, but through the years i've had it blond (not good), brown, Red, highlights, etc etc...I dyed it black again before I got pregnant with my daughter....so it's black now but i think i will put some highlights in it soon...I would love to get it permanently straightened..but I think that's a bit expensive

I have naturally wavy hair, which turns straight if I were it too long.. LOL. I like my hair, cause of the "sexy" waves, hehehe, but I really want to have it curled.. The hairdresser won't hear of it though, cause he said, I'm just gonna kill my hair with all the chemicals. hehe. I have never done anything to my hair, just the normal hot oil, and last december I had my first cellophane.. =)

I have natural straight black hair and yes I've played around with it a lot at my young age, lol. I have it curled and when I'm not happy with it, I have it back to straight, lol. I also changed the color with brown, but I only colored my hair once. Now I am happy to leave it as it is, actually my hair is not healthy as before but I'm still happy with it.

Yes, I do, but I didn't always. During my teenage days I got tired of it being straight, so I got a perm every now and then. I think I had maybe 3 or 4 by the time I was 19. But after my last one I got tired of having any more perms and have kept my hair straight ever since. I figured if I want curls I could always resort to the old curling iron. LOL At least this way it wouldn't last as long as a perm does.

I too have natural curly hair and they are really thick. So I long for straight sleek hair, but then as you say, straightening doesn't last long and one has to pay a bomb for that. I did it once, but back to curls. Guess we have to live with them. I also colour my hair.

I have a bit of the curly hair, I am hated my hair so much that I had it cut an straightened however one day I was bored with everytime doing brushing so I just tied a bun before going to work without the brushing and only on special occasions I woul do a bit girly stuff and straightens it. Now I again had it cut two days ago and It is in such a way that I do not need to do brushing every now and then. I just tie it up to my shoulders.
