I have been dealing with this mass of curly hair for years. I even thought I had it down. Silly me. Looking back, its clear: I have one good hair day picture: Thanksgiving Day in 2005 I think:

My worst hair day was in February of 2008. I was "trying" the natural look. I figured if I let it go natural a couple of days, maybe it will look good. Not so much. So much damage had already been done. Not to mention the sls I dumped all over my head everyday:

Then I finally got smart (after finding this site of course!) and now I have pretty curls! I have a routine that is simpler than ever before, and you can actually TOUCH my hair! Touchable AND shiny curls! Who would have thunk it?! I am so thankful to everyone and their great curls and informative signatures. I wouldn't have known where to start!

Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)
