Hi! I'm Jess. I've been lurking on the forums for a while now but haven't actually gotten around to joining up. I'm from Iowa but am currently living in Madison, WI, planning to go back to school and add a bachelor's (and then a master's) in psychology to the English/writing BA power combo, haha.

It's so good to have finally found a place where people with curly hair actually know what they're talking about! Mine has gotten easier to manage, and every time I do a chop, it seems to grow back even curlier. I had really curly hair up until about age five or so, when it started to just go wavy; now, I seem to be even curlier than I was back then, which is awesome!
25, hair type 2C, low-poo, trying to grow hair out after dyeing for years.
