    Hi! I'm guessing that you said you just got your period? I'm not a parent, but I am 16. I went through this years ago. It was kind of a shock, though, so I just had to tell my mom. I didn't tell my dad, but he eventually found out. Have you thought of having a mother-daughter meeting?

    My stepdaughter went through this about a year ago. It was a little embarrassing for her too, but she felt better after we talked. I agree a mother-daughter meeting is a good idea. Remember, your mom went through this too, and she understands what you're going through and can be a good source of information and support. I don't think its necessary to tell both parents if you're not comfortable - just your mom is fine, and probably more helpful anyway. It might be a little uncomfortable at first, but worth it. Your mom probably already suspects anyway, so don't worry about shocking her :)

    My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

    Hey, I am also not a parent either. I am 13, and I got my first period about 3 months. And I told my mom. She helped me. And they DO suspect it. The only thing bad about it was tht she told my dad. Which was kinda embarrasing. She said she wouldn't have if I would have said I didn't want her to. So play it safe, and just tell her from the beginning not to tell anyone else.
