5 Reasons Why Kinky Kicks Curly’s Ass Anyday!

I’ve been hearing some disheartening comments from a few kinky haired ladies ever since I started The Curly Cockney. The idea that perhaps it was easier for looser textures to go natural than the tighter textures.

In some respects, that is true. I’m on the border of kinky and curly as a 3c curl type, so I can definitely relate to what these ladies have been saying. However, I really feel that it’s time we changed the narrative! Kinky hair is beautiful and special in so many ways….so here are the top five reasons why I personally lust after kinks and coils!

 

Kinky Hair Is An Artists Dream

Kinky hair is living art. It’s ability to defy gravity and be molded into many different shapes makes it absolutely astonishing!

We all know straight haired ladies are boiling with envy as the only shape they manage is a straight line. Curly hair can only do so much….every time I try to achieve a perfect round bun, a random curl decides to make it look like I have an antenna sticking out of the top!

Here are some gorgeous and breathtaking kinky hair styles which you would happily hang on your wall!

Kinky Hair Is A Stylists Dream

The kinkies do NOT know how good they have it!

Kinky hair is the easiest hair type to style as the hair can be easily molded into different positions/styles and textures.

As a curly girl, I can not do twist outs! As Taren Guy said, “they always turn out looking like noodles!” In order for me to do a good twist out, I have to blow out my hair first to mimic a 4c texture….then my hair will take the new shape of the twist out/bantu knot/braid out. This is because natural curl patterns have a tendency to be resistant, the less curly the hair is, the less resistant it will be!

When I was 17, I got box braids…..and they lasted a month. My fine curly hair kept slipping away from the synthetic braid hair leaving my braids to drop on the floor! Very embarrassing the few times it happened in the middle of class! The beautiful LipsticknCurls also rocked Senegalese twists recently and she admitted that she had to scrunch in mousse every night as her 3b texture could not hold the twists well.

As for straight haired ladies……I think they can manage a ponytail or a bun…..you know, if there’s half a can of hairspray in there 😉

Kinky haired ladies….you are the queens when it comes to styling! You’re like little style chameleons! Your hair can hold any protective style you like perfectly. Your hair can be styled with only water and it can remain immaculate without a strand out of place for days. Your hair can take on any different texture it wants without a fight…..it’s even easier for kinky hair to remain straight when heat styled as curly hair just wants to revert ASAP!

 

Kinky Hair Is Easier To Moisturise

It doesn’t get weighed down as easily. This means that the heavier oils and butters such as shea butter and jamaican black castor oil will work wonders for you! If you never have to worry about your hair getting weighed down or looking greasy, then you can continually apply as much moisture as you like. This potentially makes it easier to keep your hair in tip top condition.

 

Kinky Hair Is Iconic

Iconic!

Forget the racist/backwards/ignorant attitude of a select few! Kinky afros are synonymous with strong, powerful yet beautiful women.

It’s great to be associated with these ladies:

Kinky Hair Is Unique

60% of the world apparently have curly hair. That makes girls like me pretty common. However, the percentage of people who have truly kinky hair is much much lower. In relative terms, kinky hair is rare. It’s unique to only one race on the planet.

Why would you ever want to blend in with the crowd when you were born to stand out? Kinky afros visually look like halos and crowns, so wear them as though they are!

An appreciation for diverse beauty is well needed within the media and fashion industry. However…..instead of waiting for your favourite celebrity to rip off the weave and flaunt her coils, why not become that kinky hair idol yourself?

As I stated in my previous blog post, if you rock your natural hair with confidence, people will notice and you will inspire other kinky ladies to embrace their true beauty. The reach extends further than that too! Showing the world that you are beautiful with your natural kinks will force people to take notice…..and that my friends is more powerful than any image the media can show us!
