I used to straighten my hair in 5th-6th grade so much that I didn't even know it was curly! I left it to dry one day and discovered how curly it was. of course the 'fad' was straightening it, so I did until like 7th grade. 8th was more of a curly year because I loved it. freshman was more of a curly year too, and this year so far ive been straightening it because its long and more wavy. ive been trying to get it to curl again, because I love my curly hair now! I think its so much better than straight hair, even with all the hassle. I just started the CG method today and I already notice a difference!
