Curly hair is a problem only those of us who have it can truly understand what it's like. "Oh, I wish I had beautiful curls like yours!" It seems like straight-haired people say that all the time. But they have no clue about the problems we curly-haired people go through every day to maintain these gorgeous curls. It's like, yeah, we know our hair is gorgeous. And we know you can't stop staring at our long, flowing curls cascading like waterfalls. We'd envy this look to if we didn't have it. But curly hair problems are an everyday fact of life for us, and you have no idea what it takes. So check your straight-hair privilege, people. Because our struggle is so, so real.
