Which Curl Are You?

No two curls are alike, making it difficult to generalize about curly hair.  In order to care for your curls properly its important to know what type of curls you  have.  Look over the three types of curls and decide what characteristics bet fit your hair.

You know you have corkscrew hair if you have...
1. Curls are tightly wound as a French poodle's if cut too short
2. Lots of small coils of curls
3. Super dry hair that crackles with electricity
4. A high frizz factor
5. Very dry skin
6. Curls that tend to stand out from your head instead or lying flat
7. Hair that soaks up as much conditioner as you feed it

Botticelli Hair
You know you have Botticelli hair if you have...
1. Curls that vary in size,
2. Curls that fall gracefully down your head instead of sticking straight out
3. Texture that is medium-fine
4. Hair that is brittle and easily damaged
5. Curls  that sometimes cannot be coaxed into making an appearance because they're weighed down by the top layer of hair

Wavy Curls
You know you have wavy hair if you have: 
1. Hair you've always believed was straight
2. Hair that on humid days is surrounded by a halo of frizz
3. Hair that occasionally develops a natural wave, which you've tried to blow-dry out
4. Hair that has a tendency to look unkept
5. Hair that is flat on the crown
6. Had wavy hair when you were very young

Another way to tell what type of curly girl you are, is by the "Spring Factor," The difference in length of a curl when it falls naturally and when its extendedHere's how to measure: Pull a strand of dry curls down against your shoulder or neck to its full length.  Leave your finger at the point where the strand touches.  Now let go.  With a ruler, measure the distance between your finger and where your curl naturally ends.  The number is your personal spring factor.

Corkscrew curls: 9-12 inch spring
Botticelli curls: 5-8 inch spring
Wavy Curls: 2-4 inch spring

Are you a Curly Girl?

Are you a Curly Girl?
Are you still hiding the truth from the world, maybe even from yourself? Take this simple questionnaire  to determine you're a member of the curly clan.
1. Do you often wear your hair tied back in a ponytail?
2. Does your hair develop volume in humid, hot, or wet weather? 
3. Does your hair make you feel out of control?
4. Do you find yourself crying after every haircut?
5. Look at old photographs and recall how you felt about your hair- and yourself- on the day the picture was taken.  Was there a strong correlation between your hair and your mood?
6. Do you almost always have a haze of frizz around your head?
7. Do you blow-dry your hair so often that its texture is as dry and brittle as piece of melba toast?
8. Does your budge for products to straighten or relax your hair exceed your annual tax-deduct able contributions to charity?
9. Do you live in fear of humidity, sweating, or any weather or activity that might unmask you as a curly girl?
10. Are you almost always unhappy with your hair?
11. Do you worry about your hair before any big occasion, like a wedding or an important business meeting? 

If you answered yes to one or more questions, congratulations! You know who you are. You're a curly girl waiting to happen. Your hair is bristling with movement longing to break free, waves aching to curl, frizz begging for direction!  Stay tuned to the blog for tips, tricks,  and products to help your curls break free.
