Curly Or Straight?

I really have no inkling where Cass got her crimped hair DNA from.When she was  under a year old, she had straight hair from the scalp, all the way down and ending with big wavy curls on her shoulders. She was born with thick, jet black hair.  When she was about 6 or 7 years old, her jet black hair turned into brunette, naturally! The brunette DNA comes from me for sure. Alycia's hair color is brunette too. When Alycia was born, her hair color was 'blonde' as the maternity ward nurses reported to my mum, who was waiting impatiently outside the OT.  But her 'blonde' hair turned into brunette over the years.  The color of Alycia's hair has been drawing curious queries from her schools' disciplinary teachers who thought that she had dyed her hair 😆, which is not permitted in school.

Hair crimping is a method of styling usually straight, long hair so that it becomes wavy, often in a sawtooth / zig-zag fashion. In the Southern United States, it is usually referred to as crimping, but also can be called krinkles or deep waves. Hair crimping is usually achieved by treating the hair with heat from a crimping iron (also referred to as hair crimper) or by braiding the hair, often in multiple strands, then undoing the braids after a couple of hours. A crimping iron has parallel heated plates designed with a flat S-shaped repeating groove.

The zigzag on Cass' hair is so deep that one would have thought that she went for hair crimping treatment. It's quite rare for an Asian Chinese to be born with this kind of hair. When her hair is wet and let down, it looks like she has just stepped out of a hair salon with a perm. But she hates having curly hair and wishes for straight and fine hair instead.

The grass always looks greener on the other side and one is hardly satisfied with what one has. Those with curly hair dream of having straight hair and vice versa. Whether it is hair rebonding or perming, the heat and chemicals used during treatment may damage the hair and scalp to some extent. An alternative to rebonding and perming is hair extension or getting a brazilian body wave.

Hair extensions made from 100% virgin hair bundles seem to be the vogue now.  They are pretty easy to wear by clipping onto your hair and more comfortable than wigs. If you have thinning hair or desire your hair to look longer, hair extensions are the to-go-to beauty solution. They are available in wavy, krinkles, straight and in any color you fancy.  Having the hair of your dreams can be achieved in just a few clicks away.  Do click on the links above to see what this site can offer you for all your hair solutions.
