Nice article about curly hair in 2/2013 Allure magazine.

Nothing much new in it, but I love seeing anything positive about curly hair in the media.
My favorite quote from the article, after mentioning naturallycurly.com - "If you're a curly girl who's never heard of this website, then I apologize for the job and marriage you're about to lose as you spiral into a vast chasm of Internet time wasting."
So true. : )
--I'm located in Western PA.
--I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, started going grey in late 2005.
--My hair is 3B with some 3A, texture-medium/fine, porosity-normal except for the ends which are porous, elasticity-normal.
--My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, oils, honey, vinegar.

    I hope that it inspires some curlies to start embracing their natural styles. I've been a loyal reader to Allure for a few years and was pleased to see this article even though the tips in the article can probably be found here:P

    How funny to see them recommend Pantene Silky Moisture Whip mousse and KCCC - I used exactly that combination earlier this week with great results! Great article and always nice to see mainstream curl acceptance. Thanks for posting the link!
