Her curls just "got tired of her" and fell out, huh?

I love Chelsea Clinton's curly hair. I absolutely love it. So I was looking up some information about why it's so straight now, and I came across this article where she claims that her hair just stopped being curly one day. Now, based on her pictures as she was growing up, it wasn't getting less and less curly as she aged. As a matter of fact, it was still very curly up until she was an adult. I don't believe her. I think she gets salon treatments to straighten her hair and that's why it's no longer curly. What do you think?

Edited: Some of the "commenters" said their hair did the same but it was during a pregnancy or some such thing where the person's hormones were changing rapidly. Chelsea's hair has been straight since long before she had her daughter, so pregnancy wasn't it. I still think she gets Keratin treatments and so do a whole lot of other people.

I'm definitely a "curly" 2c. Sometimes curly and sometimes just wavy upper layer with a ringlety under layer. My hair has been thick and coarse since birth. Strawberry blonde in color that can and does change depending on the type and amount of light.


All in all, I'm happy with my hair type but almost for sure think yours is prettier. :)

    Yes she had some type of chemical straightener applied. No one is buying that lie.

    It's the Daily Mail. I'd hardly call that an 'article' or take anything it says as truth (LOL). Here in the UK the DM is basically the most ridiculous, trashy, pile of lies and propaganda ever. I'll bet they never even interviewed her. They're known for their bullsh*t.

    Yeah, they're pretty much known for that here, too. She apparently said that to Elle magazine, though...I don't know, I didn't read the story. But I saw something last night about how it was Donatella Versace who first straightened her hair and gave her a new wardrobe. Something about appearing somewhere right after the "makeover" with Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow. I don't remember the whole thing but that article attributed the "straightening" to Donatella Versace, who had first straightened her curls. I still think she gets Keratin treatments at the salon or some such. Which is sad because her curls were so beautiful.

    Yeah...that's definitely a lie. It's sad cuz, although her face looks kinda goofy in that first picture, her hair is gorgeous and she would look better if it was still curly.

    I agree. I LOVE her curls and thought her hair was beautiful. She has the smaller curls than I have, too...the kind that everybody wants. Her hair is just beautiful when it's curly.

    I liked her curls but I always thought she was kind of homely looking little kid face wise. I remember the teachers and students at my school saying the same thing when Clinton first got elected. That said I didn't think publications should have written about it like they did. Her parents tried to shelter her but no doubt she is self conscious about her looks after going through all that. so I wouldn't blame her for lying when asked something about her physical apperance.

    What's his name — the guy who ran for Prez with Sarah Palin as his VP — said terrible things about her looks. I think you're right, adt. Still, we all know she's not being truthful.

    That would be John McCain. And yes, I agree; people need to keep their mouths closed about someone else's looks if they think the person is not pretty or is homely. I never found Chelsea homely, myself and I thought her hair was beautiful because of the curls. At this stage in her life I think she's pretty enough but looks like "everybody else" in some ways. Not everyone can meet society's idea of physical beauty and she lived in the White House during her entire teens into her early 20s; the WORST possible time for people to be publically making negative comments about her looks.

    I actually like her straight hair. I'm pretty sure with the right conditioner and gel, she would have 3b/c curls that most people would like. I agree with AdT and Claudine that Chelsea wasn't pretty as a little girl, but as a child I thought it was horrible that grown ups woukd talk that way about a little girl who was only in the spotlight because of a career choice her father chose.

    Oh it's obvious that she has had something done to her hair. But I emphasize with with her saying that her hair got tired of her and her curls fell out. Because before I went CG and actually learned how to take care of my hair my hair was probably at 2a-2b, now it is 3a-3b. So for her to say something like that makes me think that her hair wasn't being taken care of as well as it was when she lived in the White House and had a personal hairstylist.

    Coloring and heat styling will eventually ruin your curl pattern. It's probably not straight, but I'm guessing it got to the point where she couldn't get anything better than a frizz ball with limp waves to happen so she did a keratin treatment. Also if you hair is fine enough, it's pretty easy to pull out the curl. I can get nice ringlets, but if I so much as think about a comb, it's so close to straight that I might as well finish the job.

    Her curls were too tight to just fall out. Usually people with 3b and/or 3c hair get voluminous, frizzy, kinky straight, half curly half poufball and there is more work to keep it straight when damaged than to nurse it back to health in its curly state. Maybe if her hair were in the 2 range or 3a that may be the case. Also her hair doesn't look fine. I'd say it is at least medium, maybe even slightly coarse.

    That's true. Most people's hair change slightly or drastically every seven years, especially during puberty. My hair became much curlier in my late teens.

    Some sections of mine are becoming less curly creating more contrast with the rest being tight coils.then there are the grays coming. The vary from coily to nearly straight. Makes me wonder what in the world I'm going to do when I'm mostly gray.

    Well, I heard that Donatella Versace was the first one who straightened Chelsea's hair. Not quite "curls falling out" and Chelsea's hair stayed curly throughout her puberty (her dad was in the White House from her age 12 to age 20) and got straight long before she became pregnant with her daughter.

    Italian designer Donatatella Versace has been credited with giving Chelsea a makeover in 2002, straightening her hair and helping her revamp her wardrobe.

    Yeah. No way. I wish she'd be honest.

    It's no more appropriate to slander her parents than it was for John McCain to insult her.

    I don't know about her hair, but my mom's hair used to be a 2c, but then suddenly became 2a, and once it's dry, she brushes it and it looks straight (it doesn't get pouffy), so it is possible for her to have suddenly lost her curls.
