I’m sorry but I had to include that picture. If you’ve seen “Coming To America”, you get the reference. LOL! The ladies on Black Hair Media are all abuzz over a thread about the return of the juicy juicy, Jheri Curl. I didn’t get one the first time around but my mother had one. I don’t know why because she had curly hair. Smh!
Who misses all that greasy-looking hair? Ring around the collar? Plastic on the furniture to protect it from the curl juice? The hair pick with the spray pump for the juice? I swear the time period when the Jheri Curl was out was some of the best years. Heck, I wish things now were like they were back then. It was seriously less stressful and more fun.
Anywho, someone said it is making a comeback out west in Cali. However, there are a number of people in other places that are rocking Jheri Curls.
Jheri Curl – Wave Nouveau | Then vs. Now
The difference between then and now is the overall look. The ladies who have curls now are mainly going with a Wave Nouveau to give them a wavy look. I loved the way the Wave Nouveau looked back in the day. Plus, it is more versatile because you can flat iron your hair without damage. Michael Jackson was the KING of the Wave Nouveau!!!
Another difference, ladies rocking a Jheri Curl now are using larger rollers. The curls now look more natural and ladies are using less product. You have probably seen someone with a Jheri Curl and not even realized it because doesn’t have the look of yesteryear. It’s a looser drier curl that looks more like naturally curly hair.
Would you run out and get a Jheri Curl? Have you seen anyone with one?
