I had to find this thread because I'm so happy right now! A lot of you post how your mothers are disapproving of your curls, so I wasn't really sure what my parents would say. I haven't been down to see my family since wearing my hair curly. I e-mailed my mom a picture yesterday, and she wrote me back that my curls are beautiful!
My sister thought I definitely used curlers, and even my dad (who has always been EXTREMELY critical of me) commented how good I looked.
I try so hard not to care what my parents think because it seems like every decision I make is a life-ruining mistake in their eyes. But it makes me feel so great that they were not only accepting, but actually complimented my new look!
