You know, I really think I can believe what that stylist said. B/c I notice as I look @ my hair pattern, it's more of a zig zag that does a little spiral curl @ the bottom. So then if I smooth it back with shea moisture lotion, and tie it down, I see little kinky waves. Then I was like "Oh! I'm not a curly. I'm a kinky!" It was like a curl revelation. Not to mention my hair in its natural state does NOT stay down. It stay up!
