What do Jazmine (The Boondocks), Val (Stone Soup) and Alice (Dilbert) all have in common? They are all cartoon characters with curly hair. Alice has the dreadful triangular hair, a common condition where your hair grows out rather than down. Many curly haired girls have to deal with. If the forecast calls for rain, I stay inside to protect myself from the elements. Rain is the worst enemy of any girl with curly hair. What looks like drops of rain to most are essentially little drops of frizz falling from the sky. No matter how flawless my hair looks in front of the mirror in the bathroom, all it takes is a step outside before it transforms into something unrecognizable. Taking care of curly hair is not easy, but for some reason, people who don’t have it love to say, “I’d love to have hair like yours.” I’m sure if we traded hair for a day they would retract that statement quickly. Even though it is hard to maintain and is painful to detangle, once I achieve the perfect style, it is all worth it. I’m glad to see that these characters go through the same hair struggles that I do.
