: learning to embrace the curls
I'm a curly originally from the great state of Texas, but now currently reside in Colorado.
My hair has gradually become curlier and curlier through the years. I used to blow dry and straighten when I was younger all of the time b/c my hair was "in the middle" of straight and wavy. It just looked funny if I let it go natural. In the last two years, I have realized that at some point in time, my hair became truly curly. So, now I am learning to embrace the curls instead of fighting them. My biggest frustrations lie in my hair "getting on my nerves" and feeling like it's pretty dull. I am not sure what to do with it a lot of times. It either is left down (and then eventually put into a pony tail - the whole "getting on my nerves" thing) or it's just put into a pony tail to begin with
--I know, pretty boring, huh?
Anyway, I've been lurking around on the board for a little while. Looking forward to learning more about the blessing (occasionally feels like a curse) of curls!
