My first hair compliment in 2 years!!!

Hey all,

Well, 2 days into my "embrace the curl" crusade, I'm feeling pretty good about it. I went to pick up the kids from school yesterday, feeling extremely conspicuous, of course mine was the biggest head in the playground! I kind of think I look like a lion.

For thelast 2 years I've pulled my hair back, slapped it down with products, and plaited the ponytail. Anyway, I went to college last night with all the curls out, and one of the girls said "I LOVE your hair, when did you get a perm?" I was bowled over, I'm not used to people saying nice things about my hair. I said "this is my natural hair, I just stopped fighting it!" She said she was so jealous, and how she used to spend so much money on perms trying to get her naturally straight hair just like mine!

This is just what I needed to give me the confidence to continue loving my curls and letting them free.

By the way, I'm hopefully posting some hair pics later today.

Love Liz x

Some lovely ringlets there! I'm glad you got some compliments, hope there will be more.
you have lovely hair!
Low porosity, medium texture.

If it smells good put it in your hair, if it tastes good spit it out!
Yaay! Doesn't it feel great?

That's great and a well-deserved compliment it was.

I can't believe you have been tying back and braiding those beautiful curls. Set them free!

Not all who wander are lost.

Fine and thin 3a. PW: curls
Wow, thankyou all so much, I'm not used to all these positive hair comments!

I've vowed not to let chemicals near my head again, and my GHD's are going on internet auction! (they never straightened my hair properly anyway, it has a stubborn streak ) So, hopefully my curls will just keep getting healthier!

Now I'm eagerly awaiting my Curly Gurl book..hurry up postman!!!!
