Hello, My name is Erika. I've been curly my entire life. I have had 2 perms in my life one in 91 & 97. However I have extereme heat damage from blowouts every two weeks for the last 17 years. So I've sworn off blowouts for the forseeable future until I can get my mane back to beautifull. I've had 3 blowouts for special occasions in the last 11 months but I'm going to stop all together for a while. I think I have 3a/3b curls (more 3b-ish). I love my hair but I haven't been good to it in a while and it shows. Wish me luck.
