Are twist-outs, roller sets, and the like indicative of hair insecurity or chasing a non-existent curl pattern?
This was a discussion I saw online and was very interested in the answers. Many people felt that those styles were simply styling options, while others felt those styles represented discomfort with natural hair texture. There were also claims that stretched styles are lifesavers because shrunken hair results in tangles and is a nightmare to detangle. Being a member of hair blogs, I have definitely read my share of "Curl definition" threads where people are trying to figure out how to define their curls (existent or non-existent) and on many occasions people would come in and state that those people needed to embrace their hair as is and stop trying to make it something that is wasn't (curly). Do you think that people who constantly wear their hair in twist outs, rod sets, extensions, etc... are not embracing their natural texture/pattern or they just want variety?
