Curl Obssession. How obssesed are you on a scale of 1-10.

curlyazncurlyazn Posts: 11Registered Users
I got really bored and just wanted to know how obsessed everyone was. I'm kind of new at this, and I'm (hopefully) not the only person that caresss wayyyy to much about their hair.
I like right next to Giant (a grocery store kinda thing, like Walmart) and im always going there and spending forever in the beauty department.
Also, any recommendations for hair products? :blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7::blob7:

    Probably a 6-7. I mean I spend a good amount of time on my hair, but it certainly does not ruin or make my mood or dictate my life.
  • SingingSongsSingingSongs Posts: 42Registered Users
    I would probally say I'm a 6. Well I guess it kinda depends though, because I always feel as if I'm being rushed. So I don't spend all the time I want to spend there.
    So maybe a 7... Ok! Maybe an 8 :oops:.
    black bouncy 3a/b curls... And thats all I got to say...

    I'd say about a 9. I spend about 15 minutes on my hair each morning, even if I've just put my hair into a ponytail for a casual day. If I've washed my hair, make that about 20 minutes plus about 90 minutes plopping and another 30 minutes styling lol.

    Hahahah glad to one I'm not the only one. I used to straighten my hair every single day about a month ago. :(
    Then I found Curly Girl at the library and it knew escalated from there. Lol. My room is like a treasure chest of stuff. Matrix, garnier, loreal, pantene, specialfx, tigi, herbal essences. Haha. Everything.
    Yet nothing will turn my freakishly poofy Asian hair into perfect spirals. *sigh* mine are all waves and the occaisonal loooonngggg stretched outttt spiral.
    Haha

    Thanks to everyone for posting (: and I apologize fir any errors made by my stupid itouch. Haha

    i'd have to say 7 or 8. as i wash my hair, and plop, and then let it air dry, i am constantly checking the mirror, making sure the curl is setting right, mad if it doesn't, depressed when my hair looks like a poofy mess, and i can't put my hair up, or else my roots and half of my canopy pull out straight while the rest of my hair is wavy/curly, even though it was awesome curls like two seconds ago. very aggravating.

    Forget 100, I'm 200!!!

    I'm really not a perfectionist, but when it comes to how I look, I hate looking bad, and I guess it's because when I was younger I was really self concious about my frizzy hair!!

  • NoraCurlNoraCurl Posts: 345Registered Users
    When I was younger, I didn't give a crap about how I looked, except for my clothes. Back then, I would say on a scale of 1-10, I'd be 2. :D
    Now that I'm a big old teenager, on a scale of 1-10, I'm 7! I always make sure my hair looks good when I go out and every time I go to the bathroom, I'm always stopping to look in the mirror. When it comes to my skin and makeup, though, I'm about 8.5!:compress:

    Mm.. About an 7

    Sometimes it makes or breaks my mood.

    And I do spend around 45 minutes in the shower (although, I take that long when it's put up in a shower cap too! haha :P).

    But, I normally just do wash n go's.

    I'd say I'm a 9.
    Ever since I started wearing my hair curly, I have been OBSESSED with making it perfect. In general, I am a perfectionist, but I've gone over board with this. I cried once when my hair just. wouldn't. curl.
    XD

    But, yeah, I'm obsessed.

    I don't care about getting it to look perfect anymore - being a wavy my hair changes of its own accord way too often - but I freak out if someone ruffles or touches it without asking. I also spend a lot of time washing, drying and styling it. So I'll go with 8 for now. I take care of myself in every way, but my hair is my only vanity. :P
    Thick, mostly 2c with some 3a; fine texture, medium/high porosity, and a very strange curl & wave pattern.

    Rinse-out | Burt's Bees Super Shiny
    Leave-in | Live Clean Intense Moisturizing

    Oh man, ALL THE TIME! If any of my family even BREATHES on it, I run away to examine myself in the mirror! My friends usually scrunch it from behind me when I'm not looking and I whip around to glare at them.
    They all think I'm crazy.
