When I was little I hated how curly my hair was because literally everyone in my family had straight hair and so did my friends. Their hair was so pretty, and I was super jealous of their hair because it wouldn’t get frizzy. I would put my hair into ponytails and buns so no one could see my curls and I could contain the frizz. It’s funny … my story is similar to Curlee Girlee’s, because my dad had curly hair as a kid–which I did not know–and I thought, “Whoa, my dad has curly hair too, and that is super cool!”
So I started wearing my hair down on Sundays for church and these older ladies always told me how pretty it was. Then one day I decided to wear it down to gymnastics and everybody kept talking about how much they loved my hair and how great it was. This was when I was 14 and 15, so slowly as I got older I started to love it more and more because I realized that, even on days when it seems frizzy, it’s still really pretty. Now I have days where I wake up and look in the mirror and think, “Wow, I have really pretty hair!” And now I am honestly just so obsessed.
I wish I had a book like this when I was little, because it is so hard to love your hair when everyone around you, like Hannah Montana, has straight hair. I love the part in Curlee Girlee where she wet a brush and brushed her hair to try to make it straight. That is totally what I did when I was little, but I am so happy that now I have learned to love my hair! I also used to hate when people would play with the springs in my hair, but I have learned to love my hair so much now and I think little girls with curly hair are just so precious!
This cute curlee girl’s name is Nicolette! She is the daughter of Kay-Lani, a YouTuber who shares beauty products, makeup looks, and what it means to be a proud “unapologetic Latina” on a daily basis!! The Curlee Girlee family loves seeing strong moms leading their daughters to love their curls!
Eva is 2 1/2 years old and has a 7-month-old sister. She definitely has a great sense of humor and keeps the whole family laughing. Eva really likes to play with Play-doh, have tea parties with her dolls and she really loves to play dress-up. Her favorite part of the book is when she went into her mom’s closet to look for the barrettes.
Maya is 6 yrs old. She loves singing, music, art, and being with her sisters and friends.
This is Camryn, age 4.5. She is the youngest of 3 who all have curly hair, but hers is by far the curliest. She loves wearing her hair down and curly at this age!
