How is it possible that I never liked my curls before?

It's amazing that no matter how old I get I still find ways in which I've been completely in denial for decades!

I think I might learn how to enjoy my natural hair after half a decade of trying hard to make it be something else. D'oh!

Reasons why I didn't like it curly:
Frizz (because I had no idea how to care for it)
Must be washed (!) and restyled daily (I'm now getting 3 days between wettings with good looking curls--go figure)
Unpredictable (OK, this was about perfectionism and lack of skill with styling products, both of which I'm working on as well)

How fun to be reinventing myself! And how odd to be learning how to wash my hair when I'm almost 50!

    Who knew our 50's would be so cool? I'm having the time of my life traveling & not giving a care what others think about the way I look! And I do love my curl that lands right in the middle of my forehead much like yours! lol Good to meet you!:occasion5:
