Default My before and after, one week in

Not bad for a newbie, huh? It's my new profile pic.

It was hard to find a before pic, since I always deleted them unless my hair was perfectly straightened. Worked fine except for things like scenic railway trips in the August heat. My hair was shorter then--this was four years ago or so. You can see I've needed help for a while.

I still have a lot to learn, but this site really has been helpful. So thanks.

Nice! Isn't it a good feeling when you realize you're finally starting to figure it out?
