My hair has grown quite a bit since the "second big chop" (pictured above) (my first one was in 2004) but the front of my hair is still very straight. There is a slight wave to it, but its pretty much straight. You can see it in the picture above. The front of my hair now stretches to my bottom lip and it is still STRAIGHT from the root and I have NOT straightened my hair since I big chopped almost 7 mos ago!
Also, I noticed, that my sister and my aunt also have the same issue. Many of us already have more than one texture on one head, so its no surprise that the front of my hair may be a different texture than the middle or the back, but STRAIGHT???? I didn't go natural to embrace my "straight" hair.
I can't stand it because it ruins my twist-outs and wet-n-gos, two of my fave hair styling options. I have to roll up the hair in the front to get it match the rest of my hair. People constantly ask me if I permed the front of my hair (what purpose does that serve?).
Perhaps, the years of perming my hair has caused it to be straight in the front, although, there is no evidence to support such a claim. Perhaps it is simply genetic since my sister and aunt both share the same identical "problem". My other sister and my mother both wear locs, so I cannot tell if their hair behaves the same.
What do you guys think? Do you have straight/loose wavy hair place sporadically throughout your kinky curly head? How does your multitude of textures affect your styling options?
