 1 Corinthians 11:15 – ” . . . “but if a woman has long hair, it is a glory to her? For her hair is given to her instead of a covering.”

If I had a  dollar for every time I was told that I have “good hair”; I would be rich.  “Good hair” is hair that does what a person wants it to do in my opinion.  Seriously, as a former cosmetology student I was taught that hair comes in three types:  straight, curly, and wavy.  There was no category called “good”.

Lately, not sure exactly when and where, a popular hair typing has come about and is discussed all over the Internet.  According to some charts my hair falls between 3B and 3C.  Oh, before I forget, let me state at the outset that my hair is natural.  Now it seems “natural” is defined differently depending upon whom you speak with.  What I mean by “natural” is I have no product that has aided in straightening, waving, nor curling my hair.  I don’t say “chemical free” because as you know, even water is a chemical, and I use it judiciously on a daily basis.  My locks love them some water.  Oh, and I moisturize the heck out of it.  Leave-in moisturizers are comprised of chemicals, yes/no?  Not wanting to reinvent the wheel here so if you want the skinny on hair typing check out this popular blog Naturally Curly (according to this site my hair is 3B).  Here is a chart for your quick reference:

Lordy, ain’t modern technology a hoot?  I had this posted pre-scheduled, now I see it posted and I wasn’t even done writing it, bwaahhh haaa.




One thought on “Curly Good Hair

  1. Chuckle, chuckle. I’ve had a love/hate relationship with my hair since afros were popular. It never seemed to align with what was popular. Above my ears I am 3a, top of my head 2b, back of my head 2c. Hair stylists don’t want to touch it — it’s too long, too thick, too many textures, unrelaxed, sensitive scalp and tenderheaded. My girls often tell me ‘Mom, I don’t know why you complain about your hair, you know you got that GOOD HAIR’. Chuckle, chuckle.
