um...as EricaChristina pointed out, it was your parents who gave you the curls to begin with, genetically.

You might like to point that little scientific fact to your father....it was his gift to you, and you don't want to disrespect his genetic gift by straightening it, maybe...?
Finer, mixed with coarser strands, low-porosity, wavy curly whirly hair...3A, 2C hair. Medium thickness, medium elasticity.
S-shaped hair with corkscrew ends. My hair is even more confused than me ;p
My hair officially hates protein Once a month is enough!
Currently a fan of TiGi products, (rock on, TiGi Curlesque styling creme!) but that will soon change - I am a self-avowed product junkie! Yay!
BIG fan of supersoaker method - thanks Rudeechick!
