We always want what we don’t have. If you are short you want to be taller and vice versa. The same holds true with our hair. If you have fine straight hair, you long for thick, full-bodied hair. But what if we could just embrace the hair we have and be happy? We would just be a little bit less stressed if this were to happen. When you visit your local hair salon you are most likely asking for a color different than your own or a treatment or cut that turns your hair into something totally different. By embracing the natural texture of your hair, you are letting go of wanting what you don’t have and in the meantime taking a lot of pressure and stress off yourself. It doesn’t mean that you can’t straighten those curly locks once in a while or put tons of waves into that pin straight hair, it just means you can be happy with what you have right now.
If you have thin hair, there are many ways to emphasize the color or the cut and stop focusing on the fact that it is thin. Try playing with different makeup applications and get a cut that frames your face. Your hair will still look beautiful but the emphasis will be more focused on those beautiful eyes. You will soon learn that thin hair can be a bonus. You can throw it up in a bun and fluff it out a bit to make it look fuller. Be happy with your thin hair because somewhere out there is a girl with curly, out of control hair that is wishing she was just like you.
For those born with curly, crazy hair, we feel your pain. But that wild child look is just one thing about you that others love. You may look in the mirror and see nothing but hair. Big, fat, fluffy hair. We say embrace it! Let that freak hair flag fly! Use the right products for your hair texture to help keep the frizz at bay but make sure you use the right products that also emphasize the curls and give them more definition. Who wants straight hair when you have big, bold and beautiful bouncy locks?
Is your hair somewhere in between? Consider yourself the luckiest girl in the world then! When you have hair that is straight but with a wave to it, not too thin but not real thick either, you have the hair that is easy to control and fun to maintain. You can wear it up or down, straighter or curlier, the choice is yours.
Whatever texture your hair is, the in thing to do these days is to just embrace it! In a world where we are trying to be more natural and organic, loving your hair is one step in the right direction. Take the stress out of worrying about the hair you don’t have and love the hair you do.
