Being someone who's been on both sides of the fence, I was born with stick straight hair that wouldn't even kink when braided wet. It changed when I hit puberty. I thought at the age of 13 or 14 that I was gonna jump off a bridge when the texture changed and my strawberry blonde hair went dark brown.
I was, I guess, 24 when I stopped trying to straighten my hair with a brush and blowdryer. I've recently turned 38, haven't owned a brush since 24 and love my curly/wavy/unruly/frizzy/wobbly hair no matter how it's behaving.
I wouldn't change it for the world!!!!!!!!
"How can I control my life when I can't control my hair?" - from a t-shirt my brother gave me years ago. I loved it!
Have discovered I cannot live without KCCC and plopping. Always knew that I was dependant on my diffuser.
