hi Bless
My family is from Port of Spain....though, I hail from NYC.

I *never* knew Indian folks chemically straightened their hair!! WOW. Learn something new every day, huh?

Having never had much extended family here in NY (they're all in T&T) I haven't had much experience with culturally specific beautification. Basically, I just had to figure it out for myself. Not easy.
