Growing Up With Curly Hair – Reality

I have a love-hate relationship with my curly hair.and it’s now wavy, or curled. It’s curly, and to be precise a 3B. Yes! I’ve googled my own hair type, I am that obsessed with it.

But since I’m learning how to manage it properly, I’ve wanted to share the reality of growing up with curly hair.

1. Having my mom brush my locks into oblivion and turning out into a squirrel’s tail, like literally

2. Finding lost pens after a school day in my hair

Yes, my friends were awesome. (Sarcasm much?!)

3. Getting bangs is really weird especially in the growing out phase

They’ll just stick out!
