Do you get bored with your curls?

I think I'm going through a mid-curl crisis...I'm getting bored with my hair (curls and color) and am seriously considering going short and blonde again. :? I know I will love it but at the same time I will miss my curls.

Decisions, decisions...

    Sometimes I bored. That's what makes me love my products so much. I have enough range in them that I can have looser some days, loopier some days, harder hold some days, real natural look other days, you get the picture.
    I thought I was going to flip out and give in and henna my hair after someone recently did theirs but I hate the grow out so I resisted.

    I would miss your curls too so I say whatever you do you keep those :D

    If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!

    I get very bored with my curls and that is why I am getting my hair cut this Saturday. I can only stand it for about a year and then I have to have a change. I look at it that it is only hair and it will grow back as my husband told me last night since I told him she could end up cutting it short. I say go for it. I think you would look FABULOUS. :lol:

    I can't say that the curls themselves ever bore me, because they're never quite the same two days in a row. My hair in general might bore me at times... when it does I wait out a bit, and if the itch is still there I go for a cut or dye it.

    I just started wearing my hair curly after being totally indifferent to my hair. I didn't know how to take care of curly hair, so basically I had a frizzy, undefined mess for years (ugh!) I had given up on trying to have nice hair. Thanks to this board, the curly girl book and makeupalley I have much nicer hair.

    So, no I"m not sick of my curls since I just got them :D

    I'm not interested in changing my hair color (too much maintenance and expense ) and I'm trying to grow my hair longer, so I am not looking for any changes.

    I have enough "hair adventure " every day waiting to see how it will come out each morning.

    Take care,
    Sherry

    Sometimes I get bored and frustrated. I get jealous at all the straight haired girls who can pick up some cheapo drugstore shampoo and that will be the extent of their hair products.

    But then I realize, my curly hair is easier to take care of than my straightened hair.

    YES! I have a very low threshold for boredom too. I try to get a cut that I can wear more ways than one and vary the length from time to time. I am fortunate to have hair that can be allowed to dry into springy curls or dry braided (after diffusing) into waves. I also like to clip it up.

    What I hate even more than repition though is dry damaged hair which I have had for so very long.

    3B can braid to relax into 2b or diffuse into 3A. I confess I have 3C envy :-) Chin length weighed down by product - using Pureology Hydrate condish, home made brews and on occasion Redken Fresh Curls

    I can feel that way too. I got a shorter/more styled cut and now I have the part in different places and stuff to get some variation. The long hair made me very bored. I felt so dull looking. I like to be able to change things.

    I feel exactly the same way! I'll go through spells where I am tempted to straighten, but then I'll remember the torture of yanking the brush through my hair, the hours spent blowdrying it and it still looking quite poofy and me in tears because it looks so bad. Just thinking about the horrors of my straightening days erase the boredom of my curly hair. :D

    I don't think I could.

    When I used to straighten my hair, I never received compliments. It was only until I went "au natural" that people (strangers!) commented on how *nice* :oops: my hair looked.

    My hair is just too unpredicatble to bore me.

    My hair is totally unpredictable...I never know how it's going to turn out. I think it may also be the length I'm getting bored with. I've decided not to cut it short this time (I have an appointment Friday). Maybe when warmer weather rolls around. Instead I might try for a new color! :D

    I get bored with my hair (and other things) all the time! I used to go through the worst cycle of growing out, getting sick of it, chopping it off, regretting it, growing out... you get the point. I've been pretty good about staying away from the scissors recently, and I'm really determined to grow it out this time. Instead of new cuts, I dye it every few months and blow dry it straight/wavy every once in a while.

    Yeah sometimes. But I don't have the patience to blow out my hair on my own, nor the money to go to a salon.

    I wanted to dye it, but again, same as above...

    Actually I use the Hibiscus & Banana Honey Creme Leave-In, which is very similar. I LOVE it. Not too heavy but very moisturizing...and smells GREAT! :D

    I do this all the time, but then I regret cutting it b/c I can never get it as long as I want! I always break down and chop it, and then I'm pissed at myself a week later!

    But I'm the queen of dying my hair - something else I need to break myself of. I hate the upkeep, and having roots, and my hair is so dry and porous that the dye just ruins it.

    But to answer your original question, yes I get bored with my curls all the time. Right now I've been blowing it out all the time. My pregnancy seems to be pulling out the curl, and it's annoying that it falls out 20 minutes later, so I just gave up. Plus, my hair is short right now, and I feel like the curls make me look so young. And not in a good way. I feel like I look cutesy, Shirley Temple young.

    My goal is to grow it out one length in hopes of pulling out the curl and getting more of a wave, that would be easier to maintain. I'm so SICK of having this producty coif that can't blow around, and I can't run my fingers through.

    I don't get bored of my curls, but I do get bored with styling them. I can't change the way I style my hair, which is really boring...parted to the side and a clip holding a strand of hair - that otherwise would fall on my right eye - and that's it! I do put it up in a ponytail, but that's when I'm having a bad hair day or when I'm too lazy to wash it and the curls are already squashed. :oops: I've tried changing how I style my hair, but I don't feel comfortable about it. I don't know why! I hate how some do's make my face even rounder than it already is, or if it looks too "femenine" or too whatever! *sigh* It's frustrating! sadsmiley.gif

    I really don't get too bored with my hair very often. I am not as likely to get bored with my hair when other people make positive comments about my hair. As I have said before, I have very wavy hair naturally. I have straightened my hair in the past. I only got a few positive comments when I straightened my hair. My hair was in it's natural state for many years, and people frequently complimented me on my hair. I have permed my hair, which is the style I am wearing now, because I wanted curls, and I was tired of having "in-between" hair. I have gotten a lot of nice compliments with my hair being permed as well. I greatly value the opinions of other people, probably more than most people, but that's just my personality.
