I got this question at church last month by more than one person. It threw me for a loop the first time. And then I realised: unless someone ran into me at Food Lion before my hair was done for the day, or if I was having a lazy hair day, most people at church had no idea I had curly hair. It's always nice and straight for Sunday morning service.
So, I decided to go curly for church. This brought different questions. Questions like, "Why in the world don't you leave your hair curly all the time?" Well, it's simply more practical to straighten my hair. I know that seems weird, so I took some pictures as proof.
Here's me, with my hair all nice and curly
Here's me, after Wiggle Man has gotten ahold of my hair to play with it, or wrestle with me, or climb up my back, or basically in any way comes in contact with my hair
And that picture doesn't do the frizz factor justice.
Here's a picture of me with my hair freshly straightened
And here's me again, after a run-in with Wiggle Man:
See what I mean?
This is why I straighten my hair, friends. At least, that's one reason. Also, I like it better straight, it doesn't feel weird around my face when it's straight, and you can see my highlights better.
