Curly Hair in College

SugarFootSugarFoot Posts: 3Registered Users
I'm going to be in college as a freshmen in a week or so, and keeping up with my hair and weight loss has always been a fear for me because I know how new and hectic things may be when I'm trying to get adjusted.

One of the reasons I went natural was so I could do wash-n-go's in college so I wont be so fixated on my hair. But that was before all the pressures of straightening it came in place.

I mean I want to look good, but at the same time I don't want to damage my hair with all that heat. (which has already happened, and I had to chop my hair off twice)

Any Hair tips/ideas?

I have 3c/4a hair. Tight coils, very defined.

    Well first of all congrats for continuing your education and going on to college! Girl you will love it so much!

    Now a huge thing about college is that people discover how much effort they're really willing to put into looking good every day. It gets pretty difficult especially when youre rushing for class or busy studying.

    I'd recommend sticking to wash and go and maybe investing in a good diffuser to speed up drying. Some hair accessories for days you feel lazy and want to put your hair up!

    Goodluck and have fun girl :D

    You don't just want to look good for college, you want to look GREAT! Keeping your natural curly hair will definitely make you stand out!. I am entering college this year to (as a freshman) and am finally putting away the flat iron.

    If you want quick and easy hairstyles check youtube. There are plenty of options

    Girl, I'm a senior in vollege and the only time anyone looks good in college is to go out. For class, girls will come in their pajamas with pineapple pony tails, even the girls who flat iron willcome with their hair still wrapped.

    don't stress about it.
