  • I normally straighten mine, unless I am just going to be home cleaning.

  • Here lately I've just been putting it up and leavin it alone lol but when I wear it down I like to straighten it. My hair is awkwardly curly, so it's always a hit or miss when I go to wear it that way. It will either have nice springy curls, or look like weighed down crunchy waves haha

  • I only straighten my hair when I get annoyed with my hair. So mostly it is curly, I might straighten it 3times a year, like if I know I have a busy week, like a finals week or something similar

  • I leave the curls and waves, but I'm more wavy than curly:)~

    My son, is trying to grow his hair long and it drives him insane that he has curls, he straightens it. My daughter has straight hair and can't stand either of us, lol!

  • I put it n a pony with tons of hair spray (the frizz is horrible) i have very tight curls ....I rarely straighten it.... to much work to straighten it in the summer because we always swimming I would feel like I wasted my time it takes at least 2 hours to straighten it ,if i cut it short and it rained I would have a afo lol !

  • Both. For me, it depends on the humidity of the day. If it's ultra humid, I don't even make an attempt with my flat iron. If it's a nice day and I feel like it, I'll straighten my hair.

  • Leave it curly except for the top, I'm a two roller kinda gal.

  • I only straighten mine once in awhile. I learned years ago to love the hair I have and quit damaging it to please others(ppl would tell me that straight is better) I have very thick curly hair so it would take me 2 hours to straighten it anyways. I got bi-racial hair!

  • I have naturally curly hair, I've had it all my life. When I go out in humid weather, whoa, what a fright! Until a couple of years ago my daughter had gotten a hair straightener and I tried it out to see what if would do. Gosh, I couldn't believe the difference! After all those years of the frizzies, I always imagined what it would be like if my hair was straight. I just wish I had one during my high school years.

  • I wear it curly when it is humid out when it is dry out I will flat iron it. I love that my hair is so versatile.
