Curl abuse!

I just finished reading through the Game of Thrones- series and am now eagerly awaiting the winds of winter.
Awesome books!
But, the hair nerd in me can’t help but notice that George R. R. Martin is a real curl-abuser.
So many descriptions of curly hair being brushed!
And I cringe every single time.
Especially when he writes how curls are being “brushed until they shine”.

Uhm, nope. Curls do not work that way!

  1. Haha definitely, this is a sentence that is used too much, this "she brushed her hair until they shone like ... followed by a comparison with something like a precious stone of metal... But our dear George has certainly not studied how curly hair works I guess :p But he seems to like curls..

    1. Oh, definitely! I do think every single detailed description of hair I found in the books was about curls :)

    While waiting for the winds of winter (which is going to take a while since the old fart seems to engage in about a million other projects instead of applying ass to chair and continue the bloody story...) you might want to take a peek here :) http://asoiaf.westeros.org/index.php/topic/79775-a-compendium-of-theories/
