and I got into my first choice university!

My struggle has not been in vain!

Simplicity is best, at least for my hair. I co-wash every two days or so with the BWC and use the AOHR as a rinse-out when I need moisture. On other days, I just water wash, and I use AV gel every day to style. I air-dry and don't brush or comb my hair.

That's so funny...when I was a senior, my friend and I joked about writing our essays about curly hair, but neither of us actually did. I bet your essay was great, congrats on getting your first choice!

Thanks, guys! It took me a lot of editing and re-writing to make it into something a *little* bit more than my own vanity speaking. I can PM it if anyone wants to read.

Wow...I just realized that I'm not getting the notifications in my email of new posts anymore. Anyone know where I can select that option? I had to search for this thread to see if anyone had responded.

Congrats, that's great!

And that's funny, beucase I was recently thinking about writing my college essay on my curly hair journey...it would certainly be unique (well not anymore lol) But I was afraid it will sound too vain and self-absorbed. I would actually love to read your essay if you would be so kind as to PM it to me....and don't worry, I would NEVER copy it or anything like that!

Thanks for all your support! I PM'd it to a bunch of you--let me know if you didn't get it and still want to read.

I'm going to major in Interior Design and minor in Sociology, in case anyone has any experience with either of these majors. I wish I was already on my way! Although, I will miss my parents. It's not too far away; I'm going to Suffolk University in Boston.
