I have always had curly hair and as I got older, my 3a curls got harder to manage. I went through a phase where I kept my head shaved but I have decided that I want to grow my hair out for good. Since I've started growing it last summer, I have only straightened it about twice and I have colored it once but I don't plan on doing anything else to it because I want it to grow out healthy. I research healthy things I can do to my hair in my free time because I learn so many helpful things that I never knew. I also try to convince other girls I know with curly or wavy hair to embrace their natural hair and take good care of it and I check this website from time to time for different ideas. I hope to keep growing out my curly hair until it's a nice, long length.
