I love big hair now!

As a result of teasing because of my big hair, I grew to HATE big hair. I tried everything to make my hair look flatter/less poofy. Even when I was chemically treating it and relaxing, it was still thick and big.

I'm naturally curly for almost three years. During this time, I still didn't like my big hair. I wore it it buns or ponytails most of the time in public. When I wore it down/out, I tried to "tame" it.

Today I went to the supermarket and I wore my hair out in a headband. I smoothed some serum in my hair and it still looked tame. But it was SUPER windy outside so by the time I got in the store, it was big and curls were everywhere.

And guess what? It looked HOT! :P It felt like sexy lion mane hair or something. A ton of volume with my curls poking in different directions. I'm having a good hair day today, so very minimal frizz...which made it look even better.

:) Yay!

    I'm the same way! Growing up, I didn't know my hair was curly so I'd always brush it and it would end up big and poofy, which I hated

    Now when I wear it curly, I'm always trying to make it bigger and more volume-y.

    I brushed my hair daily when I was a kid. And skimped out on the conditioner. :roll: No wonder I had a big bush for hair.

    I've always loved big hair. I wish mine would go really big like Julia Roberts in pretty woman. Sleek is for the meek baby!

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

    Big hair is hot; that's how I feel, too, when my hair has a lot of body to it, exactly like you said, a lion or something.

    I brushed my hair daily when I was a kid. And skimped out on the conditioner. :roll: No wonder I had a big bush for hair.

    I can totally relate to this. I got called Brillopad Head all the time as a kid. No one taught me that I shouldn't brush my hair when dry, and I didn't use enough conditioner. I was no curls and all dry fuzz.

    My hair is still big, but with nicer curls. I love it big. It's a little different from the norm. I guess it's good that I love it big as I don't want to spend hours deflating it. I'm too lazy.
