I hope to be a forced to reckon with. I know exactly what you're saying. I actually complained at some other sites that there were no photos of anyone with my kind of curls. That has been very frustrating. The fun part is that w/ our tight curls, as soon as we wear it straight, it gives us a total different look. People never guess it is as long as it is. I love the versatility. I attached a picture. A few weeks ago, I got a rollerset & went over it w/ a flat iron.
