You know what? As much as I love my curls, I have to admit that I'm not confident in my answer to this question. There's something to be said for being able to pull a brush through my hair and fix whatever's ailing me. No way I'd do it if it were at all damaging, though - I hate that fried over-straightened look, it's revolting.

I am now completely out of the closet as the craziest of crazy cat ladies. I own it. I embrace it. I am one with the crazy.
