My goodness, that is indeed shameful on your grandmother's part! Apparently, she has issues with her ethnicity and curly hair being a part of that.

Be strong and proud of your curls! {{{Hugs}}} They are part of what makes you... YOU.

Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker

Every day is a gift
