That's a shame, Jeannie_b.
I sometimes get the impression this site can cause a kind of inverted curl snobbery - albeit unintentionally - giving the impression that NOT wanting a head full of crazy corkscrews is a sacrilege.
That kind of thing will however not happen for everybody's hair - I don't quite think I'll get my hair to be dramatically more curly, but it will likely be in overall better condition and therefore more likely to be better behaved.
The main thing is probably to learn to make your peace with your hair and stop obsessing about whether it's a bit frizzy or poofy - there's always the ponytail for days like that.
And if the weather/stars/karma is right, and the curls curl, thank the hair gods and enjoy it while it lasts!
