    Natural Hair

    Hey guys. I just wanted to share my story on accepting my natural hair. So I got my first relaxer when I was in the 5th grade. It was my graduation ceremony. I longed to look like the images of celebrities that I saw on tv, being to stupid and naive to know that they had wigs and...

    I'm Happy With My Hair

    I used to hate my curls to death.  I would wish for them to go away every day of my childhood.  When I got older, I would straiten my hair whenever I got the chance. One day I realized that there was no point in hiding behind a hair straightner and began...

    Curly, Curly, Curly

    Yip. Seems like I'm okay with my bushy set of curls. I don't straighten my hair as much as I used to. Maybe because I'm just tired of the two hours of hassle to get it remotely straight. =/ Really - I can straighten it for hours and as soon as I step outside it starts curling...

    Happy With Curly Hair

    I've always had my hair blowdried (somewhat) straight. It always came out poofy, but not curly. I never knew that I had naturally curly hair until I was a teenager. When I was in grade 9 I let my hair air dry, and I absolutely hated how short it turned out. I bought so many...

    The One Year Challenge

    So, when I was little I had these Shirley Temple curls, in perfect black that fell well below my waist. My mother loved the way people would coo over it in shopping malls and on the middle of the street. She'd spend half an hour every morning meticulously brushing it with a long...
