    Default What hair texture you like better for YOUR hair? (straight vs waves vs curls)

    I have been wondering this for a while looking at the forum here. Where I come from, straight hair is rather high in demand. However, on these forums I observe people tend to prefer curls and waves. So I thought this would be an interesting topic. Tell me how you prefer to style your hair. Do you prefer it straight/waves/ or with curls? OR other?

    The poll is missing the option for those with waves who like their waves, and with curls who like their curls!

    I'm not sure where I stand here, but I like to think I'm mostly over wishing I could change my hair type. I still feel like it's a bit too 'in between' hair types, like is it wavy or curly?? but as it grows longer, I'm more and more happy with having those loose curls that cascade down my back (getting there anyway); I think growing it longer is causing me to truly appreciate the hair I have, be more familiar with it, and love whatever it does when I treat it well. I TRY not to go out of my way to force it to be one way or another. I do love how naturally straight hair looks, but flat ironed hair looks so bad on me... similarly, I'll never have tighter curls (the dream) than what naturally occurs on my head, so I may as well just go with it!
    just growing along and seeing how far I go!
    originally made it to BSL, then cut to chin in june 2019 to remove damage. current length: awkwardly past shoulder. collarbone maybe?

    Indeed!

    My answer would be that I have slight waves and I like my hair that way, I wouldn't want to change my texture. I like how my hair can lean towards being either straight (without any major frizz or poof issues) or wavy depending on which I try to encourage.

    It's also missing an option for Cheese :

    My hair is pretty straight when brushed, but it seems to get a little wavy if not brushed or if it's been a while or tied up

    I generally like straighter hair, but sometimes curls blow me away like Tilly in Star Trek Discovery

    I like to keep it straight these days. It is kind of thin and it floats in the wind which I like. On special occasions I curl it and it looks rather medieval. On semi special occasions I curl just the ends and brush them out. When I want to do something different I wear it in a french braid to bed (kind of tightly)...and then unbraid it in the morning and it makes these really pretty waves that keep with the light floaty quality. For the past 5 years I really wanted thick curly hair because I thought it looked amazing. But now, I guess I don't care as much and like it for what it is.


    but let your adorning be the hidden person of the heart with the imperishable beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which in Gods sight is very precious.

    Curls are so much easier for me to take care of (perms). I don't know why. Maybe the uniformity in curl does it and the fact that it is a "set" style. So easy to style for me.

    But I have started wearing my hair wavy (after perms years ago) and have learned to style it just as well.

    I still love curls so much and don't understand why people hate them so much. Wavy and straight hair is so much harder to deal with, IMO.

    Ylva, I feel my hair is probably similar to yours - texture wise. I too can encourage either texture; perhaps I have a bit more wave than yours, but can’t be too sure.
    But of course our hair colour is like opposite ends of the B&W scale and your platinum blond locks look gorgeous, almost ethereal!!!

    Awwww... your hair look so beautiful in your hair typing album. I bet at hip length it is gorgeous. It looks like something you can easily style to look either straight or wavy. But updos are so much cooler!
