There was a little girl,
Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good,
She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.
If this poem springs back a distant childhood recollection, particularly that of the badness of those with curly hair, then you’ll know one of the common myths; curly-haired girls are naughty girls. This is the first of many myths about curly hair, there happens to be a few others that are not truthful.
Here’s another one; curly hair doesn’t grow past a certain length; crazy, I know. This is a myth that is said a lot. However it is important to note shrinkage, the curly hair co-star can cause some confusion for those without springy locks. Curly hair can in fact grow past a certain length, just like any other hair type but curls can just be deceiving in really seeing the actual length.
What about this one? Do not use shampoo. Although conditioner is curly hair’s best friend, this myth does seem quite strange considering every scalp needs a good cleaning now and again. In comparison to the straight and wavy hair counterparts, curly hair isn’t necessary to wash as often due to this hair type usually being drier than others which seem to produce more oil. The truth is, curly-haired scalps still need to be cleaned from the products used, skin cells, and exterior dirt that builds up just like every other hair type.
Myth number three; accepting unmanageable hair as a part of your life. A myth most with curly hair can shiver at, not just because it is untrue but also tiring to hear. Though this myth can be easily debunked with the hair ranges catering to the needs of curly hair now available.
