As a person with naturally curly hair I say dont listen to her. If you let your hair grow out & don’t straighten it for a while you will look beautiful! Healthy natural hair is way prettier than dry damaged hair. If you ever need…
Thanks :) My hair used to be really frizzy too, when I was younger and didn’t know how to use product. I use Pantene shampoo and conditioner for curls from dry to moisturized, and it really helps. Then after I put on some anti frizz serum by Herbal Essence and it’s all good. At the beginning of high school I used to do my hair all the time, but then I just got super lazy and never felt like looking pretty because I realized who cares what I look like since my school is filled with a bunch of assholes. As for your mom, you gotta try to just ignore her. My mom is really mean to me about what I wear since I tend to wear jeans and band shirts instead of pretty girly stuff, I just tell her I am me and she has to relax. She usually gets mad but it doesn’t really matter because I know she loves me and she is just superficial. I hope everything works out for you! Maybe if you grow your hair out it’ll be less frizzy?
I’ve been wanting to try a whole bunch of those moisturizing/repairing/etc. shampoos and such, but my mom’s got me going to her hairdresser every 4 months for keratin treatments, so that I can straighten my hair without it dying (which actually doesn’t work out as well as it should; I have genetically weird hair lol). But the way that treatment is, I can’t use shampoo or conditioner with sulfates or some specific chlorides in them.
I’m supposed to go back in August, but I think I’m just going to tell the lady I don’t want to have it done, take my money to someone who isn’t under my mom’s apparent mind control, and get something less restrictive done. Or just not do it at all.
And, in all honesty, I’m going to college, so I’m hoping when I do end up coming home for certain weekends or whatever, she’ll focus more on the fact that she missed me, and less on the fact that I’m ugly. And if not, I’ll send letters and stay in Buffalo for months at a time, because I really can’t handle her constant insults and negativity during the school year.
ALSO! (I’m almost done, I promise!) I really have the same attitude towards doing my hair for school. Yeah, there’s the value of first impressions, but I’m not really sure that the people who will make decisions about me based on how I look are the people I want to be too close with anyways. Tried that once, and it didn’t end well at all.
