"Krøller eller ej" ("Straight or Curly Hair") was the Danish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1981, performed in Danish by Tommy Seebach and Debbie Cameron.

The song was performed sixth on the night, following Israel's Hakol Over Habibi with "Halayla" and preceding Yugoslavia's Seid Memić with "Lejla". At the close of voting, it had received 41 points, placing 11th in a field of 20.

The song is a plea for global unity, with the duo explaining that they love all their children (and, later, all children worldwide), regardless of their appearance. Backing singers were Michael and Ianne Elo, who also performed backing vocals on the 1979 entry "Disco Tango."

It was succeeded as Danish representative at the 1982 Contest by Brixx with "Video, Video".
