Here Are Some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS) About Curly Hairs And Their Answers.
Q1: RAINBOW, HOW DO I MEASURE THIS HAIR, IT LOOKS SHORTER THAN THE LENGTH I ORDERED?
ANSWER: yes curly hair looks shorter because the twists that gives it the curly looks also makes it look shorter, but if you pull it down or straighten it, you would notice that it would look way longer, same applies for wavy hair, if you keep an 18inches wavy hair and an 18inches straight hair beside each other for length comparison you would notice that the straight hair looks obviously longer than the wavy hair because the Waves makes the body wave hair look shorter but if the body wave is pulled down or straightened, it measure same length and the straight hair.
See picture below for illustrations.
Curly hairs when straightened looks way longer, this is why many people sometimes get longer length of a curly hair, to get the exact look they want.

The tighter the curls, the shorter the hair looks and this makes it harder to measure correctly.
This is why curly hairs with loose curls like deep waves and water waves looks longer than curly hairs with tight curls like jerry curls, pixie curls and water curls.
But the good thing is this Curls drop, loosen and relax over time , this is why, if you measure your brand new curly hair, it will barely get to the exact length ordered, it will ,but barely, especially hairs with tight curls.
But if you measure the same hair after two months, it will give you the exact length and even more sometimes.
All these hairs are same length but different curl patterns, that’s why we pull down to measure
Q 2: Rainbow, Can I Brush my Curly Hair?
Answer: Yes you can.

This is the look most people prefer.
