    This is the only picture I have on my computer. My hair hasn't changed all that much. It's just gotten longer so the curls have stretched out. But if I cut it all short it would look like this again. It still does on the sides underneath.

    I was always a curly, though brushed out too much.

    I really should find some of those hideous Jr. High pics.

    I have so many years of school pictures in which my hair was horribly brushed out. I'll try to get some of them scanned tonight.

    So precious! Interesting you mention your pattern not changing but curls just getting stretched out. That may be the case with mine too! I've been using sulfates and cones for so long that I'm sure that's taken a toll as well.

    That's me, on the left, next to someone who was straight as a kid, now is nice and wavy (like 2b). :)

    My hair was straight when I was born, and jet black. It turned to a nice medium brown by the time I was 6 months or so, and I'm watching my son's hair do the exact same thing. :)

    Thanks! :lol: My poor mother couldn't get it to stay put in a braid because the curls kept trying to get away.

    These pics are great, and soo cute! I was a straightie until I hit about 12/13 when it started to go wavy, then by 18 I had full on curls. I'll have to dig through my pics....

    7th grade. My mom used to brush my hair. I rarely, if ever, wore it out like this.

    About the brushing thing....um, yeah. Those poor blue bows hanging on for dear life. But OMG how I miss my childhood hair color!

    ^^^ WOW, talk about curl differences among individuals!

    Nynaeve77, in your toddler pic, when I was that age, my hair was already well below my back. And it was nowhere near as straight.

    If I had known you as a toddler and as a 6-7 year old, I would have NEVERRR thought that your hair would be so curly as an adult. Maybe a 2c or a 3a

    Yet in your age 6-7 pic, my curls at that age were nowhere near as loose as yours. My mom brushed my hair on the regular so I didn't have much opportunity to see my unmanipulated hair texture, but whenever she washed it, my curls were way tighter than yours when I was 6-7. It was long enough for me to sit on, though.

    Once I reached toddlerhood, I don't think my curl type changed much, at all. My loosest curls would've been infancy and very early into the toddler stage. I don't know WHERE all the hair came from in so short a time period.....when you look at my first pic as a baby and then again at age 2-3 (I didn't post one, but at age 2-3 my hair was below what would've been BSL)....

    I can't get over how different our hair types were as kids/babies and now we're so similar as adults. Wow!

    My hair changed textures more than a few times...LOL It was definitely at its tightest in my teenage years and loosened up a little in my 20s to how it is now. I think letting it grow out stretched it a bit.
