Having wavy, unmanageable virgin hair for more than twenty years was never an issue for me. Well, that's until people started telling me my hair ruins my potentail of looking like a lady. Since then, I've had it rebonded every six months. I got tired of it though.
Early last year, I cut my hair into a bob but find it difficult to maintain. It was mid 2016 when I decided to have it curled for the first time.
Curling is definitely more expensive than rebonding. The last time I rebonded my hair, I spent P1,500 only including curting, dye and treatment compared to curling which cost P4,950 for the same.
2. Hair Care
In the past, I wash my hair every other day, sometimes even three days, but it would still look sleek and shiny the next morning. No additional products needed.
With curls, I always wake up looking like a lion even after washing it the night before. You would also need to use a comb with bigger teeth and apply moose if you want to keep your curls in shape.
With straight hair, it's kind of limited with a side part and hairband. You don't really want to tie it up and ruin it. I remember using a telephone cord kind of hair tie during a hot weather but it's not much help.
A curly hair, on the other hand, is at your skill's disposal. During lazy days, I can have it in a bun or jazzed up pony tail. Sometimes, I try following Japanese magazines to look fancy. It takes skills, patience and extra time but less boring to look at.
Personally, during those busy days of being a working student, I like keeping it straight since it needs less effort to maintain. You wake up, get dressed and nobody will think you didn't even take a bath. Unless you stink of course. Having curly hair is just the opposite of that but I like looking differently everyday depending on my mood without regrets.
There you have it. So, which do you prefer?
