Straight hair vs curly hair

I have curly hair (I think it’s a curl between 2 and 3) and I am over it. It’s hard to wear it down and look neat, and so I always wear it up. And it’s unpredictable. I just want hair I can count on, you know? Lol

I’m thinking of getting it chemically straightened. I hear it lasts several months and it’d give me a chance to see if I prefer it to the curls.

Straight hair people, am I missing anything? The grass seems so green on your side.
