I agree with Touch.of. Ink, your curls are gorgeous close up and far away. And I think there is something really carefree and wild looking about having some frizz mixed in with our curls. Perfect hair just wouldn't be me!

Thank you, Touch.of. Ink and diaspora. You know, I tried for a couple of years to get those perfect curls, but then I realized that that is the same mindset I had when I was trying to get sleek, straight hair. I was seriously obsessed and the unachievable was making me unhappy

Now, I just want the kind of hair I can live with, sleep with, swim with, and tousle around in bed with. Anything else is not acceptable in my life.
Curlini and diaspora like this.

Sometimes we see our own faults (especially physical ones) through a magnifying glass - we see flaws that others just don't see because they aren't that invested in our view of 'perfect curls.'

Well said and I totally agree & am trying daily to implement that line of thinking, when I get frustrated at yet another "frizzy" day. Beautiful curls!!
