i hate mine, been natural for 11 months. i look in the mirror and always consider going back to straightening. Something inside me doesn't, so that must mean something. It's so hard just to get a trim. Once a stylist sees you're curly, they see complication. I've been turned down numerous times just because I have curly hair. The only curly hair stylist to trim my hair, cost $60. Because I have curly hair, I have to pay that much just so a stylist can cut 1/2 an inch off my hair. Needless to say, I sometimes wonder if I was cursed. I truly do. I envy all these girls who have beautiful locks, yet I look at mine and it makes me want to cry.
