*LC*, you should seen how much serum the stylist had to use today, lol. It took over an hour too. I could *neve* do it myself. It looks to wiry and triangle-like.

Is that the same cut in both pics? I like how the line of the style works nicely both straight and curly.

First one is 1 month after the BC. The second one is December of 2007 when I was still relaxed. I can never take a picture that shows the curls how I see them. I like it much better in person. I haven't straightened since the BC in July, I'm scared to! When I pull out a wet curl the length is about an inch shorter that in the straight picture.

everyone's hair looks so much nicer curly. I prefer my hair straight but it's too much work.

Pic of me in straight hair was taken over 5 years ago so take that into consideration. This was a GREAT hair day for me too.[IMG]file:///C:/Users/Cjv/Desktop/comic-p.jpg[/IMG]

... I wish I could play... But alas I have been unable to straighten my hair, no matter how many hours I spend with straightening appliances and products... *sigh*

Needless to say, everyone looks amazing! This is another one of those inspiring threads.

I'm also styling tool inept, so my stylist straightened it. I could not have done that myself and gotten it that smooth.

Here's mine straight and curly! Short cut is the latest (sorry about the sepia tone, haha), but I'm trying to grow it out again.

Goober.....thanks for saying that because i've been referred to as having hair like a broom for many years. The only bad thing about going au natural, is sometimes you feel there is no style or neatness to your hair.
