    Finally I Love My Hair!!!!!

    I fought my curly hair all my life, lol.  I used to have long hair down to my waist in jr.high and back then the thing was to iron it.  This was before the curling iron, I actually ironed it on the ironing board.  I would put a big sheet of paper like a big brown...

    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...

    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...

    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...
