yet another curly haired indian gal! my hair didn't curl up until i was about 12/13 too, so all through high school, i had no idea what to do with it, had a lot of bad hair days, let me tell you. my grandpa had curly hair, and my aunt and mom both have curly hair. my mom straightens hers with big rollers, and i remember my aunt wearing her tight curls very curly, but i guess she now straightens it too.
now i'm in my 20's and have learned to love my curls! although i still have that dilemma of trying to figure out a new hairstyle.
