The second absurdity only kicks in, if the point is to discourage girls from thinking a lot about their appearance. It's this (and I can tell you this from experience, since my own hair is naturally curly --naturally in the sense of "Naturally, my hair curls since I got it permed."): the easiest thing you can do with curly hair is to let it curl. If you were truly encouraging a girl with curly hair not to think about her appearance, you'd just let the hair rip. Trying to flatten out curly hair demands quite a lot of energy and attention paid to one's appearance. I remember women ironing their curly hair in the late 60's.
