: Finally at Peace with my hair
I've always hated my curly hair. I blame some of those feelings on my mother & straight-haired sisters (but that's for another forum, right?). I wore it super short for most of my life so it didn't have time to curl. When I turned 45, my hair started to thin & I let it grow out, but would blow-dry it straight. Two months before my 50th birthday, my mom passed away. I vacationed in Hawaii for the big 5-0 & let my hair do whatever it wanted! I haven't straightened it since then. I'm now living in the UAE & find some challenges with the de-salinated water, the heat, & products that are unpredictable. It was great to find this site & I look forward to communicating with more curly-haired girls!
