     I haven't dyed my hair for over a year now, so I guess it's official now: I have stopped dying my hair! I begun dying hair when I was about 16 years old and went through all the possible shades from Extra Ultra Blonde to Ebony. The last time I dyed my hair, was in late...

    It's true. I do! I do like my hair straightened too and did consider having it chemically straightened but soft curls are more wild and free. Embrace your hair! πŸ™†πŸ˜˜
