It can be pretty unmanageable if you don't know how to deal with it. I'm half Spanish but I have inherited the texture of hair from the dominant African-American roots on my mother's side, and because it's so thick, it can be a hassle. I've switched to a perm in the last year and a half because pressing it had become too much for my mother. I love my hair, though.
