    New York City and one of the few that actually was born here, but worked a lot down south in my 20's.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    A-town down! ATL shawwddy!!

    Haha, born and raised in Atlanta, Ga. Technically raised in stone mountain, but most people from around here didn't actually grow up in the city although I went in every sunday for sunday school for 16 years. I also went to college in the city, and living here now. My parents are still in stone mtn (about 15 miles away).

    My parents are from Bangladesh but my dad was living here before he got married, his first job in the U.S. was at the college i went to (Georgia Tech). My mom was living in NJ and my dad moved up there, gotta job offer and were looking for houses. My mom couldn't stand them or the cold dreary weather so they moved here. My dad wanted to stay there and I always felt like I'd fit in more up north than down here(people are so ignorant especially back in the day) but it's better now since it's been growing and I love this city and am now used to and love most of the southern ways.

    I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner. I believe in kissing, kissing a lot. I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in miracles.

    Born & lived in Texas until I was 20. Live in AZ now. Much happier here.
    From Michael Berg:

    Every person has a unique connection to the Creator that can never be extinguished, and every person has a great soul that can manifest important things in our world. To make a person feel less than they are because of something inside themselves, be it faith, race, or sexual orientation, is the greatest sin of all."
