|a little girl looks, there is beautiful and straight and shiny hair that needs one pass of the comb and it's perfect hair. People with straight hair can roll out of bed and their hair looks normal.|
But this is a myth, that straight hair is easy. Straight hair also gets frizzy. It also gets tangly. I can't braid my hair. It won't stay in braids- it falls out. (I mean, falls out of the braids, not out of my head.) It gets weird when I sleep on it wrong. It falls in disgusting clumps when dirty. I have a neice whose hair is so fine that it gets knots when the wind blows it, knots that take ten to fifteen minutes to untangle.
I have no idea if it's easier or harder than curly or kinky hair but I do know that all girls deserve to know that the grass is always greener on the other side. We don't know other people's experiences.
So while I can't answer the OP directly, I can assure all the kinky-haired people out there that there are very, very few women who can do anything but a ponytail without a lot of work.
(And I can't curl mine, either- the curls won't "take". Lucky for me, I was never told that this was abnormal or somehow a hardship. I do feel sad for little girls who are taught that their hair is a hardship!)
