Reel videos shared by influencers about embracing one's natural curly hair and the infinite steps involved in curly hair maintenance have had many curly-heads sitting up straight (including this writer).

Now that the world has started to appreciate our curls, how about we take a walk down memory lane and laugh at some of the things that only Bengalis with curly hair have heard growing up!


  • What fabulous morning bed hair is for some people is not always the same for curly heads...
  • Hair we are! In Kolkata, which is a gorgeous city, but humidity is a curly head’s biggest enemy...
  • We all love our Bengali moms but every day before school she pulled, tugged and fought with your hair, and begged you to comb it (didn’t she?)
  • That one day you got dressed up for a party and, thanks to the curly hair gods, it was a good hair day! But then, your friends said...
  • A visit to the salon was filled with anticipation... what if?
  • And what's school life without your besties watching things disappear into your mane?
