Have you ever felt jealous of your friends who have long, straight hair, with every strand seeming to fall perfectly in place? If you're the only curly-haired girl in your family or in your barkada, it's only natural to feel like the odd one out. But we're here to tell you that having curly hair is something you should celebrate! It makes you special and one of a kind. It makes you stand out from the crowd. It may not be perfect all the time—and yes, it can definitely be a struggle—but once you learn to love and embrace it, you'll realize that having curly locks makes you uniquely beautiful.

 1  When you were a kid, your titas would always say you look just like Annie.

 2  Whenever you brush your hair, it turns into a frizzy mess.

So you learned to stop brushing and just let your curls run wild and free.

 3  In a sea of straight-haired girls, you've always felt out of place.

On the rare occasion that you meet a fellow kulot, you instantly bond over hair products and styling tips!

 4  Every time you walk into a salon, the stylists encourage you to have your hair relaxed or rebonded...

But after sitting in the salon for hours, your stubborn curls just won't straighten themselves out.

 5  And when digital perms became a thing, nobody would believe you when you said your hair was naturally curly.

If you could wear a sign on your head that says, "These curls are au naturel," you would.

 6  Your barkada decides to dress up as Disney princesses for Halloween and you have no choice but to go as Merida or Tiana.

Don't get us wrong, we love Merida and Tiana because they're beautiful and awesome. But hey, curly-haired girls can dress up as Cinderella, Belle, or Ariel, too!

 7  You often arrive in school with wet hair because your curls take forever to dry.

When the girls in school give you judge-y eyes, you want to say, "Blow-drying will make it frizzy, OKAY?"

 8  You're so happy when traveling to a cold country because your curls become neat and well-behaved.

The Philippines' hot, humid weather is NOT curly-hair-friendly at all.

 9  Most days, you prefer to just tie your hair in a ponytail because styling it takes too much effort.

And despite all the curly hair styling products you've tried, you still haven't found the perfect one.

 10  Whether you're dancing your heart out in a club or simply fixing your big hair in public, somebody always gets caught in the hair storm.

You apologize, of course, but deep inside, you just want to shout, "Move aside, ladies! I'm dancing like there's no tomorrow." #curlyhairdontcare

 11  You know how hard it is to find a hair stylist who appreciates thick, curly hair—and knows exactly how to cut it so that it falls perfectly.

So when you've found him (or her), you're never letting go!  

 12  You admire women who aren't ashamed to flaunt their curls—like Lorde, Taylor Swift, and Beyoncé!

These gals show the world that you don't need to have super straight, shiny hair to be beautiful and confident. And if they can rule the world, so can you!
