    You know what, once I learned how to care for it and what to expect from it, I really do:yep: - mixed textures and all.

    I love my hair (my natural texture and relaxed) but i would love it more if i could be at least bsl. I also love its thickness, color, shine, and ability to hold a style.

    Yes & no. Don't get me wrong, I looove my curls, but sometimes I wish my hair were looser[like 3a or 2b] & was able to stay straight in the Summer. I do love the thickness of my hair though. :]

    I like how thick my hair is. but sometimes, I wish I had type 3 so I can do a wash and go.

    I'd rather have all coils than a mixture of coils/kinks. Other than that I'm good.

    im relaxed but i do like the texture of my new growth (4b) however, im not willing to cut off all my hair and go natural but if had the choice when i was younger i would have never got a perm.

    I like my texture and I'm learning to love it the more I work with it. I'm mainly 4a with some 3c and sometimes I have hair envy. Not based on hair type so much but length and thickness.

    i have good days and bad days. there are days i love twirling my fingers in my twist outs, and rubbing the tight waves at the front of my head when i slick it back with gel or moisturizer, and i love noticing i've trimmed enough of my texlax away to the natural hair that the ends are now curling up on their own. but there are the other days when any moisture in the air wreaks havoc on my style, i end up with this frizzy, fluffy, tangly mess. or the fact that i'm still trying to achieve that shine to my hair i had that ONE time two years ago; when i remember i wasn't natural then. and the fact that it grows so friggin slow and is dense but fine.

    i voted 'it's aight'.

    I love my texture. I just wish it were longer! Ugh, once my hair hits APL in it's natural state, you won't be able to tell me nothin' lol. I think it's probably 3b/3c I don't know.

    I love my hair..that's for sure! I've when it's in braids..I like to play with my new growth. The only thing I wish was that I didn't have this heat damage and that my hair was a little thicker. I know once my hair is down my back..I will love it more!

    I actually enjoy my hair's healthy and length more then the actual texture. Even though everyone said I looked cute with shorter hair, I'm just not a fan (on me) of hair shorter than SL.

    Now if I could learn to love my shrinkage a little more I would be all set.

    @ the bolded, well said.

    I also voted that it's aight. I like that it can hold certain styles but I don't like that I have to do so much for it just so it can retain length. My eyes glow green when I find someone who has wl hair and only moisturizes with shea butter. No deep conditioning, no baggying, no growth aids. Here I am doing yoga, spending money to find products that work, looking up ingredients, etc etc.

    Perhaps I'll like it more when it's longer but as of right now, my texture is virgin Indian straight. When the time rolls around to take it out I'll be processing it to a kinky straight and putting it right back in. This will be the pattern until I reach my goal of bsl, straightened.

    I'd love my hair if it was thick or dense. Since it's not... I'm just happy to have some on my head.

    I love my hair texture, but i still sort of have "but what are we going to DO with it?" attitude towards it. I just don't see myself as an afro gal (although, if I were in my 20's or 30's in the 1970's I would be Foxy Brown--Pam Grier the actress--not the skank raptress).

    On a side note, the teen that was staying with us for the summer said something that broke my heart. She has beautiful thick 4a hair, but struggles because she heat styles like crazy (blows it straight with no washing/conditioning, uses cheap drugstore products). She insists she "loves her hair" and just wishes it was longer. But one day she said "it's like it's cool...but it's not pretty." :nono:

    It's Aight. I would love my hair more if it were longer and more uniform. But I do love how fast my hair texture dries.

    When I first started transitioning I didn't like my hair. But, that was because I had no idea what I was doing. Once, I learned what my hair likes I learned to love it.

    Not in particular, I just love having a whole lot of it & I do love my styles. If I had the choice, however, I'd like something with more of a natural shine/less shrinkage

    It's alright. I don't have that much (about 8-9 inches) and I'm 4a/b and it shrinks like crazy but I'm trying to learn how to style it!

    Re: Do You LOVE Your Hair Texture? Be HONEST!

    I love my hair. I didn't realize how much I loved it until I put this wig on. Other people may be feeling the wig but it just doesn't feel as divalicious as my fro.
