I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt that way.

Give the newbie a break, please.

One thing most people don't realize (I sure didn't) is the amazing array of variations there are in the curly hair area. I mean, there are a lot of different categories/types (ie, the 1/2/3/4 a/b/c typing system) and beyond that each head is different. Heck, many of us have more than one (or even two!) hairtypes/curl types at any one time! It's crazy.

I'm sure you'll get aquainted with that kind of thing pretty quickly around here though. We have quite a variety.
