Hair Envy

I ask this because I have a problem with being envious of other people's hair when I am on this site. :oops: Once in a blue moon I will see somebody who's hair I admire in person. But ever since I became a member on a daily basis I get overwhelmed by all the beautiful hair here. Anyways, I just wanted to see how many other people struggle with being jealous of others hair here on naturallycurly.com.

    I'm not sure if envy is strong enough, but I admire many of the curly heads here for their well taken care of tresses. I have seen some 3c hair that I would love to have isnce I love tight corkscrews, but I'm a 3b, so that is that.

    I do love my hair a lot more since coming here and switching up my routine though. The support here also helps when I spend too much time in a straight haired environment.

    I do admire many of the tighter curlies, but I wouldn't be me without my own looser waves and curls. :D

    There are a lot of heads here that I admire, but I have so much love for my own hair and am having so much fun playing with it, I don't want anyone elses (even on the bad days). The gift that I got from nc.com is how beautiful curly heads take care of their hair.

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    ITA! I am coaxing my hair to health and I love seeing healthy, well-styled heads of hair. There are quite a few heads of hair I really like on here, but even if a genie came along, I don't see myself trading my hair. I would feel like I was abandoning it :( My dream hair is my own hair at its peak.

    Now that I have gotten my hair long and healthy, I wouldn't trade them for anyone else's. There are some curlis here whose pictures I never get enough of such as Internetchick's and Tooj68's because our curls are very similar, but I still have mad love for my own curls, nonetheless!

    I wouldn't say I'm envious b/c I am very happy w/ my hair the way it is - it's my trademark. But I certainly do see lots of curly hair on this site that I think is gorgeous. I love all curly hair - I think it's beautiful.

    Really, I love my own hair and I don't think I would change it. But, a woman I work with has incredible 3c hair that I just adore. And, I also love this woman's hair: yoga teacher Seane Corn.

    I do love my hair, but sometimes I wish I had waves, or some 4B curls, or just something different. If I had 4B curls I would part my hair right down the middle and have two cute puffs on each side :D I envy several of the curlies here :D
  • KaiaKaia Posts: 8,815Registered Users
    I have horrible hair envy, even though my hair really isn't all that bad. I think I'm just more critical of my own hair, and it's easier to appreciate someone else's. Ab-star is my absolute hair idol, but there's so many beautiful heads of curls here!

    That's funny - cuz I'm sure they all envy you! I know I do!
    OMG, LOOK!!

    ...It's a siggie. :shock:

    I have hair envy because I am transitioning and haven't yet seen my real hair texture in full effect. I look at other ppls curly heads and hope mine might be like that bc my texture might resembles what theirs already is.

    I have hair envy not just on here but IRL as well. I envy anyone with thick hair, regardless of curliness.

    I love alot of peoples hair on here but I wouldn't really trade mine but for maybe 2 or 3 peoples. Not that a ton of curlies don't have great hair, just that I really like my own hair. But if it would just be a little bit curlier I would be happy. To name one hair idol, if I could have Plink's hair I would be estatic! :D

    My friends little sister wears her 3c/4a hair like that--it's looks so cute.

    I like long, more loose spiral waves, than curls. I love kimmyc's hair, lush, and gryantmarchstep, Munequita has the most amazing hair I've ever seen. There are a few others but I'm doing this all off the top of my head so I can't think of them right now.

    Interesting replies!
    I definitely am grateful for my hair. There are times when I'm washing it that I can't help but to think how soft and luxurious my hair is, kinda like a cashmere sweater. I don't think it would matter who's hair I had, I would always be envious of others people's hair. There are so many different colors and types of curl that are beautiful to me(I've also really admired many healthy straight women's hair before too.) Off of this site I would trade hair with: Muñequita, curly_princess, lushaholic, pixiecurl, mitabird, keewee, plink, Midnitecurls, urbancurl, moppyt, hockeymomof3, and doria...but there are many more people on this site I would trade hair with as well. Which is why I chose the too many to count option. :wink:

    I guess it just goes to prove that the grass is always greener on the other side, because I am always drooling over someone else's hair. :lol: Seems like there's a new one every week that I go gaga over. The list is endless!

    How can you not be envious of all the gorgeous different curls on this site?? There are so many beautiful heads of hair on here to admire! However I do love my own hair and feel so lucky to have curls!!

    (I totally am not worthy of being a hair idol...thanks for the kind words!! :oops: )
