Brush and Go

When you have curly hair, there is no getting out of bed and going. That’s why easy maintenance is my top of the many reasons to love your straight hair. I can’t even imagine how much faster my morning routine would be if I could just comb my hair and be done. So next time you find yourself wishing for curly hair, just remember that it takes time and products to make it behave and you’ll be thanking your lucky stars you have straight hair.


Fewer Tangles

When your hair is super straight, it means fewer tangles to comb out. Sure, you might still get a mess when it’s windy or you slept on your hair all night, but for the most part, straight hair is easy to manage. Simply comb it when wet and give it a quick once over with the brush every few hours and you’re good to go!


Fewer Products

As a curly haired girl I can tell you that there is no shortage of products in my bathroom. Special shampoo and conditioner for curly hair, curly hair mousse and hairspray to tame the flyaways. If you have straight hair, you probably don’t need a ton of styling products to keep things under control and you can probably use general cleaning products to help get rid of residue, dirt and grime. That saves you time and money!


More Styling Options

When you have straight hair the styling options are virtually limitless. Want a braid? Easy! Need a ponytail for a workout? Simple! Anything else – give it a try because it will most likely work. On the other hand, with curls it can be hard to wrangle them into place and keep them where you want them. That means you should embrace your locks and use them as a palette for all the fun hairstyles you see.


You Can Brush It

I don’t even own a brush because I can’t use it on my curls. I have to comb them with a traditional comb or my fingers or I have a fluffy mess on top of my head. However, combing takes longer and isn’t always as efficient at getting rid of tangles as brushing is. So there’s one more perk of having straight hair.


It’s Shinier

You know those hair commercials when the hair is super straight and super shiny? That’s not as possible to achieve with curly or wavy hair. Your straight hair, provided it’s healthy and strong, will look shiny if you take care of it properly. That’s equated with beautiful hair so take it if you can!


You Can Wear It Short

I once made the mistake of getting my hair cut super short and I looked awful. Curls tend to spring up more with less weight so when you get them chopped, your hair poofs up and out. Not a pretty look. With straight hair, you can easily have a super short style without looking silly.

Do you have straight hair? I used to fight my curls and spent hours straightening my hair. I don’t do that anymore. I’d love to have straight hair, but there are benefits to curly hair too. What’s your favorite reason to love your straight hair?

Naturally wavy hair is nice but it's always frizzy in the summer. Since I think I'm on the straighter side, my bed head is almost nonexistent and I just have to brush it.

Yes! I do agree with this.. The only thing I would change are your hair won't be tangly when it's healthy.. When it's has tangle in it, it's mean that your hair are dry or damage or wen both. I speak this as a person that only use curling iron once in a life time and beer use a straightener because my natural hair is stick straight heheheh and I only use blow dryer like once in month or more.. If your hair are damage try using some diy hair mask (: like the one with avocado and oils and so

Number 7. Yes... :( I just chopped mine to shoulder length. It was adorable straight, but I hate it curly

I have curly hair and hate it!!!!! takes to long to straighten it can't just walk out of the house and go can't do braided unless straightened sucks never being able to change my hair because just to hard to then damage curled if try anything can't even make waves(beach) bc of my curles

As someone whose had both, i do and don't agree with this list. I had it relaxed in jan and have found it easier to detangle, yes. It looks lovely when straightened but it's still frizzy. (Bad hairdresser!) It takes me longer to style in the morning now, yet with curly hair I would wash, oil and go. My hair was curly/wavy and my saviour was simply using a teeny amount of coconut oil as a serum, no sls shampoo and rarely any heat. I'm definitely waiting for my curls to come back now! Also brushing can be bad for hair anyway, so to keep it in good condition I rarely use mine.

I have curlyish wavy hair and none of these apply to me. Getting ready in the morning is so easy, I don't do anything! My hair requires little maintenance in to be lush wavy an shiny, so lots of these are curly hair myths. EVERYONE has it different.

I have straight hair and I WISH I had curly hair. straight hair gets so boring and flat and dull; curly gives you volume and some texture to "spice it up". and noooo way can I do short hair. I cut my hair short and the ends flipped up and I looked like an upside down teacup. and it isn't low maintenance whatsoever. for me, I just wish I had some sort of volume or texture to my hair; I find straight hair dull and boring

As a person who has straight hair 1-4 are not true. My hair won't hold a style other than stick straight without tons of product. I appreciate someone trying to write this for people with straight hair, but it might be a little more true coming from someone who has straight hair.
