    Thank you!!! Sadly, I think this is the longest I've gone without straightening my hair and it's only been 2 months. So glad I found this website!

    The great majority of us went through a period, sometimes half a lifetime, of "curl denial", because when we're young it's important to us to "fit in" and fashion dictates how this "must" be done. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with trying different hairstyles, it's just part of the fun IMO, but it seems as though you've "fallen in love" with the real nature of your hair and that's a freeing feeling, isn't it? I have felt more genuinely myself since the day I decided to just be a curly, at least 99% of the time! And idk about others, but I love to look at my hair in the mirror and see how all the curls are not alike, how the light reflects on them, even sometimes distractedly playing with a curl twirling it with my fingers, lol! I jus think curly hair is more "interesting" and fun!

    I love the different sized curls I have. Some are bigger than others. I like that my curls make me different than everybody else.
