Lurker here, I've finally managed to pick up the courage to make an account!
To be honest, I dislike my natural hair very very much and have been straightening it almost every working day for the last 3-4ish years.
Of course, this is really damaging and probably isn't helping the fact that I dislike my natural hair hahaha.

So, I think its about time I tried to embrace it, to be honest its going to be a long process! I don't think my face suits cury hair very much, a lot of you look utterly gorgeous with it. :)

A little background on me is I'm 18 and about to start a science related degree in Uni! I love animals and being outdoors (as well as nerding out on games ._.) so being outdoors a lot makes my hair hell frizzy when its not straightened :c

Also, its summer here. I currently avoid water like its acid which is a pain because I love swimming and there are so many lovely lakes and rivers here to swim in during the summer! Another reason I should get used to my curly hair...

Anyway, I better cut it shot. This is getting to be a novel, I ramble a lot. If I get the courage I might post few photos of my natural hair. (:

I think its either 3a or 2c. Not sure, more a damaged thicker 3a probably, except it frizzes heaps.

    Thanks guys! I'm definitely trying to like my curly hair more! Infact, I only straightened my bangs today which is something I haven't done in ages! Usually straighten the lot, even if I just wear it in a bun. XD
    A lot of my friends don't even know I have curly hair, but I came home and took it out of its bun and found it actually looked okay! Baby steps :x
