Well, 2 days into my "embrace the curl" crusade, I'm feeling pretty good about it. I went to pick up the kids from school yesterday, feeling extremely conspicuous, of course mine was the biggest head in the playground! I kind of think I look like a lion.
For thelast 2 years I've pulled my hair back, slapped it down with products, and plaited the ponytail. Anyway, I went to college last night with all the curls out, and one of the girls said "I LOVE your hair, when did you get a perm?" I was bowled over, I'm not used to people saying nice things about my hair. I said "this is my natural hair, I just stopped fighting it!" She said she was so jealous, and how she used to spend so much money on perms trying to get her naturally straight hair just like mine!
This is just what I needed to give me the confidence to continue loving my curls and letting them free.
By the way, I'm hopefully posting some hair pics later today.
Wow, thankyou all so much, I'm not used to all these positive hair comments!
I've vowed not to let chemicals near my head again, and my GHD's are going on internet auction! (they never straightened my hair properly anyway, it has a stubborn streak ) So, hopefully my curls will just keep getting healthier!
Now I'm eagerly awaiting my Curly Gurl book..hurry up postman!!!!
Good for you, woman! Good luck as you continue on your curly girl journey! And keep wowing em with those gorgeous curls!
