Thank you so much! and I was the same way. I was always straightening my hair, and if my hair was curly then it went right up in a ponytail! Haha. But forums, blogs, and sites (especially YouTube) like this have also inspired me to just accept the curls I have. The people who judge your hair are just ignorant. They're usually the ones who don't understand curly hair and are just close minded. Congrats are deciding to embrace your curls!
