I get mine trimmed every three months because it's the perfect balance between enjoying my curls and not having them be a headache to take care of. My stylist is a lady with naturally curly hair that straighten hers. It's hard as a guy because I wore mine short and cropped for 20 years but by the time I reached my early 30s (33) I grew it longer. It took me watching other guys lose their hair early to appreciate what I had. Now, I couldn't imagine myself without my curls. To that end, I say this, "Curls aren't just for girls."
