Thanks for sharing, Nana. A cry for the angry hair we had:

Today I asked myself why I kept up the ridiculous practice of using a bunch of relaxers that didn't work. ... I recall pouring a whole lot of hope into some far-fetched idea that eventually one of those besh**ted relaxing treatments might work - just had to find the right one.

I was so desperate to have hair I just wasn't born with. Now when I think of just how different my hair is from some kind of "American" ideal, it makes me feel proudly unique Wish I'd thought that way years ago.

Ringlet Fandango! ... Where curly ideas roam free
