OK, now, makes me almost happy my daughter is deaf & can't hear stupid remarks! She is biracial and just knows I love her hair. I have a different type of curl (always looks like it was just let out of large braids) and it always did exactaly what it wanted to do. I could gel it, blow dry it, set it on extremely large rollers, etc and 15 minutes later and a little humidity (Memphis!) and we were right back where we started. All I ask of my daughter's hair is healthy shine and an easy comb job. She is a little girl and I do not want her life to center around hair fights. PS unlike fine, straight hair girls, my daughter's hair stays where I put it!! An advantage of small tight curls!
