Hi everyone,

My name is Felicia, and I'm new to the site! I've come a few times for information, but I thought I'd actually register this time and start talking to people.

I received a flat-iron for my 13th birthday and straightened my hair every single morning for 7 years, until I lived in Wisconsin for the summer and it was too hot to bear. So for the last 3 years I have been au natural, and I love it. I am not completely sure what type of hair I have (but my guess is 3b), and I love my curls when my hair is short. But I'm trying to grow it out, and now may hair is giving me all sorts of trouble.

Just wanted to shout out and introduce myself. I'm sure you'll hear from me in some of the other forums. Thanks for putting together such a great site! It's such a relief to get curly help.
