Embracing the curls

LeeLee2412LeeLee2412 Posts: 1Registered Users
Hi fellow curlies,

I have finally decided to embrace not curse my curls. I am a 3b type with waist long hair. For years I have tortured my hair with relaxers, flat irons, crimpers, and various other "anti curl" devices. Well I have officially gone sulfate, shampoo, and straightener free. After meeting with a proper curly stylist, I will give it my all to recognize my hair as a beautiful gift instead of a horrific burden. This is day one in my transformation (hey, a girl's gotta start somewhere right). So wish me luck and I will be sure to post follow ups on how my hair and attitude adapt to my new regimen.
