Hello everyone, I'm just writing with a bit of my hair's story so that I can let you all know how thankful I am for your community of expertise. I've had long thick naturally curly hair my whole life, and I've been totally blind my whole life as well. As I grew up and was shown how to take care of my hair, I was encouraged to simply braid it or put it in a bun, while basically accepting the fact that it was a difficult nuisance. As I finished university and started looking for a job, I decided there must be better techniques to manage my hair, so I turned to the collective experience of the Internet. I found this site, and was overwhelmed by the wealth of information available in the articles and on this forum. The way many of you have described in detail exactly what you do in your hair routines has meant awesome results for me. My relationship with my hair is based on the way it feels, and your tips have helped me learn to equate what it feels like with what it will look like. So again, thank you so much.
