“The thing about curly hair is that it’s a toss-up. Some days you can let it air dry and it’s better than a hair-do, but some days you just look like a sloppy person.” – Natasha Lyonne
Different type of hair calls for different type of hair treatment. Whether you have straight hair or curly hair you will need to take different type of products from your hair treatment supplier for different style. All the while keeping in mind the advantages and disadvantages of the type of hair you have, so that you can do your hair treatment accordingly. So, here we have listed some of the advantages and disadvantages of curly hair.
Pro: Very Noticeable
There are many versions of curls, like wavy or tight curls and each version is very noticeable in its own way. Also, the number of people who have natural curls is very few compared to people with straight hairs. This also makes them noticeable even in roomful of people.
Humidity is not at all friendly to people with curly hair. During sticky summer days and humid monsoon days, it makes them look like lion’s mane. All you can do is pull them back in a tight bun and forget about them.
Pro: Adapt Any Type Of Hairstyle
The biggest advantage is any type of hairstyle suits curly hair. Whether you let it be, use a headband, a simple bun, or a pony depending on the occasion, they all look good.
Con: Not Knowing The Actual Length Of Your Hair
The full length of your curly hair does not show. Because the curls are twisted and turned, it looks much shorter than they actually are. The only time you can see the full length of your hair is when it is wet or straightened.
Pro: Low Maintenance
Curly hair is most definitely very low maintenance. You can very easily skip a day or two of not washing your hair. In fact it adds a new bounce to it. Also, less shampoo equals saved time and money.
Con: Straightening And Brushing Is Difficult
Both of these things take up a lot of your time. If you want to change your style straightening them will like climbing a mountain. It is not only unmanageable but also takes at least an hour to straighten them. Dry brushing can lead to split end and breakage and combing or brushing your hair dry will cause frizziness. This is why you should always use hair treatment products before you bush your hair.
All in all, it is both a bless and a curse if you have curly hair. But it doesn’t matter whatever your hair treatment supplier tells you, it is you who need to live with your hair so care for your curls accordingly.
