NC: What is the best thing about being curly?

Ana: I think the best thing about curly hair is the versatility. There are very few times when you get bored with your hair. The length of the hair determines what styles you can and cannot do (unless you choose to use artificial hair), but there is a style for just about everyone out there with curly hair.  NC: How do you think having curly hair impacts your life?

Ana:  During recent months, being a curly girl has impacted my life quite a lot. I can't go outside without someone stopping me while walking or even driving! They always have questions and comments…sometimes I'm not ready for them. There is also a lot of criticism. I have received comments such as "Why are you trying to make yourself look black?" or "You should relax your hair. It will be so pretty that way. You're far too light skinned to look like that," and last but not least, "Don't go out looking like that!" NC: What would you tell others to encourage them to embrace their curls?

Ana: If you like your curls, don't care about what other people may think! It brings such freedom knowing that you look the way you want to look.  NC: Tell us about your life and what you're up to!

Ana: I recently started a YouTube channel called "Dominican Merida." In a few days/weeks, I'll start to upload videos. It will be a channel for naturals starting out or naturals who need new ideas on what to do with their hair. I also started a Facebook page called "Girl's Manual." This page is more about everything that girls like, need, or want to know about.  If you would like to know more about Ana, you can find her on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, or Instagram.

Your hair is gorgeous! I have hair that is very similar to yours and just as big and crazy and curly. I´ve only every seen long curly haired people with thin hair and loose curls. I have thick hair and tight curls but I've been wanting to let it grow waist length. (with no stretching) I wasn't sure what it would look like but now I know, that it looks beautiful. I´m definitely growing it out now!
