My hair is naturally very curly and I do like it sometimes but I wonder whether straight hair looks better on me...what do people think? Should I get a brazilian blowdry so my hair is straight all the time..or leave it curly..or straighten it myself and let it be wavy?

I have tried to include pics of it in all its different states..though I am not sure if I know how to upload properly

Numbers one, four and six are the hottest, I don't have the faintest idea what a Brazilian blow dry is though.

My hair is really curly and not very long either (I'm growing it though) and I once considered having it permanently straightened..but I'm so glad I didn't! I think you should leave it how it is because, as you said, you do like it sometimes, so it's better to give yourself more choice - sometimes you can leave it natural and when you want to, straighten it.
Now mine is getting longer I sort of like it curly, it has so much more volume/life than when I straighten it (which I used to do every single day when it was short!)

Apparently for a few months but I reckon it will last until your hair fully grows out and that could take years (in my case anyway as mine goes really slowly).. Ahh I really don't know what to do.. It would be so much easier to have it staight all the time (my hair gets everywhere) but if it'll never be curly again thats kinda poo... I wonder if anyone has had one done and could offer more advise...

For people saying it's permanent straightening - A Brazilian Blowdry is a protein (keratin) treatment which just puts the natural keratin back into your hair. It doesn't need you to grow your hair out as it doesn't alter the chemical structure of the hair or anything like that, it just adds back natural keratin. Therefore after a certain number of washes (on average 2 months, although it depends how much product you use, how often you wash etc.) it just wears off.

OP: I had it done in the summer because I was going to Africa for five weeks and my hair is awful when not straightened, and I have to say it was possibly the biggest waste of money I've made. My hair isn't as curly as yours, more wavy and very frizzy, but I can't say I noticed that much of a difference. Your hair is lovely as it is, and I think you would be better just straightening it as and when you want, because (from my experience) it didn't make that much difference - I know when you Google it, there are pictures which suggests it is like a wonder-treatment, but I know other people who have shown similar results but only when they first had it done as it wore off so quickly. If you have the money to spare then by all means give it a go and see if it makes a vast difference, since it will wear off naturally and you won't need to wait for it to grow out, but I think it's a lot of money for something you can do yourself as and when you want it, reasonably easily.
