Curly Hair Tip: Have Realistic Expectations About Your Natural Hair

Don’t expect natural hair to behave like straightened hair. You’ll have to learn different ways of dealing with your hair to get satisfactory results. Otherwise, you can experience a lot of frustration when your natural curls seem to be “unruly.” They’re not unruly; they’re simply doing what they naturally do. Once you accept that your hair is frizzy, puffy or “big,” you’ll be better able to work with it instead of against it.

    I completley agree and that’s how I roll. I’ve never gotten frustrated understanding that my hair is doing just as it’s supposed to do and behave.
