College Curlee Girlee of the Week: Lauren

When I was little I hated how curly my hair was because literally everyone in my family had straight hair and so did my friends. Their hair was so pretty, and I was super jealous of their hair because it wouldn’t get frizzy. I would put my hair into ponytails and buns so no one could see my curls and I could contain the frizz. It’s funny … my story is similar to Curlee Girlee’s because my dad had curly hair as a kid–which I did not know–and I thought, “Whoa, my dad has curly hair too, and that is super cool!”

So I started wearing my hair down on Sundays for church and these older ladies always told me how pretty it was. Then one day I decided to wear it down to gymnastics and everybody kept talking about how much they loved my hair and how great it was. This was when I was 14 and 15, so slowly as I got older I started to love it more and more because I realized that, even on days when it seems frizzy, it’s still really pretty. Now I have days where I wake up and look in the mirror and think, “Wow, I have really pretty hair!” And now I am honestly just so obsessed.

I wish I had a book like this when I was little because it is so hard to love your hair when everyone around you, like Hannah Montana, has straight hair. I love the part in Curlee Girlee where she wet a brush and brushed her hair to try to make it straight. That is totally what I did when I was little, but I am so happy that now I have learned to love my hair! I also used to hate when people would play with the springs in my hair, but I have learned to love my hair so much now and I think little girls with curly hair are just so precious!
